I'll start - 26560

 

First time playing the NES Mario Bros. I've played it on the GBA, Stella and EMU7800. I think the physics are different on this version, or its just me.

240,960

 

The time seems to go by faster on the coin bonus stages on this version and the physics are a bit different.

The bad guys land a little further away on this version than they do on the 7800 version.

I like to have the Sidesteppers (the red crab guys) land on the same floor as Mario.

I hate this game with a passion. It'd be a lot better if those stupid red and green FIREBALLS weren't there! I suck. :( 63,510

those crabs are as annoying as the stench of crap. 44,290 On my last life, i was on the re-entry thing, and a fireball got me as soon as I got off icon_mad.gif.

Second post:

 

 

This is my first entry to the High score stuff. I looked at the rules beforehand.

 

72760. That's not bad, certainly not 240,960 but it's ok.

When does this end? Can I play the Wii VC version?

 

 

Questions answered. I'll try to get a session in by Tues.

My cousin & I played the coin-op all week long one summer back in the 80s. Got to know it pretty well.

 

I'll try to post 300k in an hr.

This is Shigeru Miyamoto's worst creation of all time, and proof that even HE is human. Barf! I am never going to play this game ever again. It sucks. 75,610. Wake me when we finally get to play Tetris.

Remember, we are on a 2 week rotation now, so all scores are due by tomorrow night! I'll even try to submit one myself...

Well, I obviously didn't get around to posting a score. Nevertheless, this round is over.
