This version of Martio Bros is weird.  It looks nice, but it feels off.  The Slipice enemies seem to come out way too often and the skidding/jumping feels wrong.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of this one. The control reminds me of Ice Climbers.

Also the sound the Slipice makes when freezing a floor sounds like the beginning of Punchout.

Is this ROM available anywhere? I searched for it and mostly come up with Super Mario Bros. or a notice that "This ROM isn't available."  I thought I might have the cartridge, but I guess not.

Nintendo cracked down on rom sites a year or so ago.  You'll have to really dig to find the rom.  You'll never do it using google or any popular search engine though as they've scrubbed those sites from their listings.

OK, thanks...I'll find it eventually.

This game aggravates me so much. I've been trying to top Tempest but I might just settle for a lower score.

It took me a bit.  A lot of false starts.  I grew up playing MB on the Apple IIe and it's MUCH slower.

I wouldn't even want to play this long enough to get 700k or one million. It's so repetitive after awhile.

Which video game of that classic era is not repetitive?

I'm pissed off because I was having a really good game and it crashed!  I've never seen a NES game do that.  you can see half the Fighterfly is missing on the bottom there.

A game of Marble Madness is under five minutes lol.

Oh, and the difficulty doesn't increase that much, at least in this port. Once the ice appears that's about as hard as it gets. Other classic arcade games get much more intense after a few loops.
