Author's comments and explanations:
<This is Super Mario Bros Genesis, an unlicensed game based on some original Mario games. In this game, Mario have to shoot boxes (or "fire balls") to kill enemies, and they can't be defeated by jumps like in original games. It's the main difference compared to the original games.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: <BizHawk 2.2>
  • <Fastest time with Mario>

Stage by stage comments

<First World>

<The first world of this game is separated in three parts inspired on first levels of SNES version of Super Mario Bros (All-Stars). The first part is similar to Overworld, the second part is Underworld, and the third part is the castle that contains lava and a boss (Bowser) in the end. The Overworld music plays in all parts of this world, except the boss.

<Second World>

<The second world have visuals that remembers "Yoshi's Island" from Super Mario World 2>

Other comments

<It's my first TAS, I saw some tutorials on Youtube and so I didn't have much trouble to made it. I played this game during aproximated 2 Months before starting to do this TAS, and so I analised each level and chose the best ways to improve it. >
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Deaths to get 3 more "fire attacks" and beat the bosses faster
  • Luck Manipulation in some parts
  • Faster than camera in some parts

Suggested Description

Super Mario Bros Genesis is an unlicensed game based on some original Mario games. The first world of this game is inspired on SNES version of Super Mario Bros (All-Stars), and the boss is Bowser, and the second world have visuals that remembers "Yoshi's Island" from Super Mario World 2. The main difference of this game vs. original games is that Mario have to shoot boxes (or "fire balls") to kill enemies, and they can't be defeated by jumps like in original games.

Masterjun: Judging.

Masterjun: This game is a hack of Squirrel King, and a pretty bad one at that. The first two levels are edited, and the whole rest of the game (which is about 80%) is exactly the same as the linked publication of the game. Due to the amount of similarities, we can't accept this hack to the site. While this is enough of a reason to reject this submission, I also want to point out that the movie was made on a fixed dump of the ROM and does not sync on a good dump. The goal choice is questionable as well, since this run plays the 1 player mode of the game. The 2 player mode of the game is faster, more entertaining, and shows off more of the game overall.

The main reason for rejection remains that this hack is unacceptable due to big similarities to the original game.

Rejecting.
