Sorry Mario Bros is a free 2D platformer which gives Princess Toadstool the ability to jump, and thereby free herself from King Koopa’s castle. The game spans three of Super Mario Bros’ original levels, this time from right to left, as the Princess jumps, stomps, floats, and warps her way from the castle dungeon to the bright and wonderful Mushroom Kingdom.

Why’d We Do This?
Mostly for fun, and for exercise. We thought it’d be a neat perspective switch to move backwards through the Mushroom Kingdom, and how better to do that then allow the princess to escape? The idea was finally given life when we heard about the @iamagamer_ca game jam, which was based thematically around strong female protagonists. For a more in-depth and intelligent explanation of why that’s important, visit Feminist Frequency.
Instead of spending a long weekend on the project like most of the jammers did, we decided to take two weeks and make a slightly larger project, to really test our skills as (new) devs. The game tells a fun (short) story, the experience is unique, and we learned a lot. Additionally, the very talented Jonas Kjellberg provided some great reversed and remastered interpretations of the games original soundtrack.
Hope you enjoy!
