Update: Final version can be found here. I have always been a big fan of Mario Bros. Mario Bros XE is the BEST home conversion, out of the box! Not only does this version include the icicles, but it also includes most of the animations and cut scenes. This is my effort, with the help of Playsoft, to make the graphics more arcade-like. Please keep in mind, there are hardware limitations limitations: All enemies and background characters share to 4 colors and 1 background. eg: If the pipes were green, the ice would later be green. If the turtles shells were green, text would be dark, and other items combinations would be messed up. A RED Mario would result in a white face. The flesh tone is not selected. it is a result of overlapping the two player colors. I chose a darker brown. It is closer to red than the old pink color, and allows for a more natural blue. I am limited to the original enemy character widths. The shellcreepers do not jump out next to their shells, because the software sprites are not wide enough. I think the original animation is pretty good. I only tweaked slightly to match the more arcade-like graphics. Mario Bros Intro Level 10 Mario Bros IceAge (The icicle levels)
Ok so I dont know if Im in the minority, but whenever I tried to learn batari basic I find them a tad confusing, like whenever i attempt to make something I just dont understand enough to make anything... But you know what I did understand, Atari Basic A Self Teaching Guide: https://www.atariarchives.org/basic/ One of the things that Random Terrain recommended that I look at before I tried Batari Basic. While I didn't understand BATARI Basic I feel like I under stand ATARI Basic very well. It felt kind a fun with the examples and with the practice in the book it helped really pound in the language and how to actually use it. Am I only one who thinks that Batari Basic could use this self teaching guide treatment as well?
