Mario Forever is a 2D platform game that resembles the oldest Super Mario editions for nostalgic gamers and the lovers of those first titles. You can download the full version of this game completely free for PC.
Play as Mario in his adventure to rescue Princess Toadstool from the wicked Bowser who keeps her captive in his castle. Run through over 50 different worlds beating goombas and koopa troopas.
The game keeps the scent from the original one, but this time it includes some new upgrades. New enemies, new levels and an improved gameplay are part of this remake.
Mario Forever's gameplay
Mario forever keeps the same controls as usual platform games on PC. The arrows are used to move the character, Z is for jumping and X is for throwing fireballs. You have to jump on your enemies in order to defeat them or just shoot them with the fireballs once you get the fire flower on your possession.
You have to avoid being touched by your enemies if you want to survive this adventure. Destroy blocks to get points, collect the coins that are spread through the stages and finally rescue the Princess. But don’t mistake the castles!
Among the official levels you can find different extra ones if you investigate enough. Get in the pipes along the levels and always look for any suspicious entrance, this way you will be able to unlock all the secrets.
The graphics of the game shows influences from the SNES Super Mario but with better definition. So Mario forever presents better graphical aspect than the original title. There are some details like 3D objects that appear in the screen like an eight pointed sun in contrast with the general landscape and characters that are 2D made.
The sound effects are not the original, but we can see some similarities between them. Coin sounds, blocks breaking and smashing the goombas are pretty the same.
There are some alternatives for this game like Super Mario Bros. X that is other remake of the classic one with different added features. SuperTux is another freeware game which main character is the Linux penguin Tux.

Mario Forever 5.9
Having tremendously enjoyed playing the first game of Super Mario, I find this update even more interesting. The kind of game play is not very different from the original, though this new version comes with some improved features, game play and graphics. The game runs in a 2D platform, but you will find some details that run in 3D like the 8 pointed sun that contrasts with the landscape. You will find there are new enemy characters, new objects and added levels of play that makes the game appear more advanced.
Our superhero is still Mr. Mario who goes out in his funny adventures to rescue Princess Toadstool from the hands of wicked Bowser in his formidable castle building. His movements now are faster and complex than in the original. This kind of play is still the same as you still use the keyboard arrows to move your character Mario, Z is used for jumping while X is used to throw the fireballs. Jump over your enemies in order to defeat them and avoid being touched by them as it means they defeat you. All in all the game still maintains that funny imagination of such games.
- The game graphics and special effects have been improved
- Game introduces new levels of play
- The game looks too simple and

Super Mario is a game that I used tom play even when I was a small kid. It is it is an old version game that I used to play on the VCD player .But now you can easily download and play this game o a PC.i feel the old version game was a bit complicated but with Mario forever game it is quite more advanced and has some originality in it.
When playing this game you use arrows to either make Marios jump, move or throw fireballs. You also have to avoid being touched by your enemies like the super Mario that was before. You can also collect coins to gain power. The sound is still the same like the old game and so if you’ve played it before you will still like it on a PC.You can also save the game to play it later or continue without restarting again. Play this game and bring back the princess back to the castle is really interesting. The graphics are quite advanced from the old version and so you enjoy playing your game.
Installing this game if you played when you’re young can bring back memories and you can collect coins to save the princess and block the evil enemies.

- You can save a game and play later.
- A bit difficult from the video game version.
A Classic Game Yet Still Thrilling and Entertaining Up To This Era

Super Mario is the very first game ever introduced to me during my childhood years. It only offers soft graphics and it was so easy to control and to play. As years passed by, there were lots of versions being introduced in the market and I can say that each version has new features to offer.
But Mario Forever is the complete package. It resembles the old super Mario but this has more very incredible features to enjoy. Mario forever is a lot more fun and exciting since there are new enemies in the game. I also love the new levels and the enhanced game play. Jumping on the enemies, shooting fireballs and destroying blocks to get some points are still part of this game but I found extra levels aside from the given ones which I consider a thrilling one. I was also fascinated with the graphics design that Mario Forever has presented. Regarding the music used, I can say that it is all pretty the same as with the original. I have noticed that there are help signs made for beginners. This game is a lot of fun because of its amazing colors, layouts and improved visual effects which I believe would be enjoyed by the youth nowadays.
I highly recommend this to users who are looking for easy, fun and entertaining games. Mario Forever as the title is very ideal. Go and kill the devil dragon and save the Princess.
- It has improved graphics and layouts
- It is fun and easy to play
- Include more challenging obstacles and power ups for Mario
