Here’s What Super Mario Bros Looks Like On The Atari 2600

A member of the Atari Age forums has created a demo showcasing how Super Mario Bros would be like running on the legendary Atari 2600. The ingenious individual has managed to fit 16 worlds into the game which are World 1-1 through 4-4. Due to the hardware constraints the creator has only managed to get one enemy to appear on the screen at one time. You can read more about the impressive development here.

    1. It is, but “bits” aren’t a good way to measure power, as there are other 8-bit consoles that look much better.

  3. Hey guys, I’m the one who made this mess. You can watch a video of my playing the first 3 completed levels, although I am strongly considering redesigning 1-3 since it was really easy to pass.
