Super Mario Bros: Odyssey (Ch1)
preview
By: smbmaster99 [W]
Super Mario Bros Odyssey Ch.1 is a retelling of the very first Super Mario Bros game, with cutscenes, new sprites, original levels, unlockable skin-sets and levels, and a few characters and items from future Mario games. "Odyssey" is going to be a series of fangames base on other entries in the Super Mario Bros franchise, with some original ideas. I began the project around 2 1/2-3 years ago with the intention of it being an "all-in-one" game similar to Super Mario All-Stars. After a good while though I realized just how ambitious the idea was and that is how I got onto the route I'm on now.

This update has a few bug fixes. The bug that caused the game to crash for Windows 8 users shouldn't happen now. Also, pressing enter to save should work too instead of un-pausing :P

F1 displays the controls and be sure to extract EVERYTHING into the same folder, or else you may get errors ranging from visuals not displaying to the game just flat out not working. Hope you all enjoy the game!

This is the first chapter, in which Mario and Luigi begin their on-going adventures to save the Mushroom Kingdom from King Bowser.

Be SURE to extract ALL the files into the SAME folder, or else some audio/graphical bugs may occur.

Hope you all enjoy the game!

Author Summary Score
TheTwelfthRocket Super Mario Bros. Odyssey wants to be a SMB1 retelling; but the flaws just kill the score. Sorry, I think I'm just a picky person.

No offense, but that's just how I feel about this game.
6 / 10
Q-Nova Super Mario Bros is one of the best classics ever, and this game is just as good as the original! 10 / 10
fireluigi Basically, worth your time and download. Give it a try, you'll love it right from that first startup. 9 / 10
Syr This game is very good but it is indeed overrated. With brutally long levels and sometimes unfair level design. And bad Luigi physics making him pretty much unplayable on harder stages. Nevertheless I still Recommend it but it's not the greatest -- pssh, can't wait for Chapter 2! 8 / 10
Nuggeting Super Mario Bros: Oddysey is a great game. I only had to play World 1-1 to know what I was in for. This is one of the best games on this site, and you definitely need to play it. Although the physics are a bit whack, you'll still probably have a good time with it. 9 / 10
RaymanFan1995 All in all, this first episode of "Super Mario Bros. Odyssey" is by far the best Mario fan project I've ever played. A lot of care and passion went into making this, and it's proven within the first World. I look forward to seeing the rest of the episodes as they are being made. 10 / 10
Yoshi11 Simply amazing because of its beautiful music, big replay value and more. It's like an actual Nintendo game and definitely worth the download! 10 / 10
ShyGuysToyBox A beautiful retelling of the classic Mario story. 9 / 10
Jetace97 Overall a beatiful game to play through, despite some details that are off the Mario games. 9 / 10
Average Score 8.9 / 10

One of the best engine-based platformers I've played. However, pausing the game often causes a castle to appear in the upper-left corner of the screen, after which the game hangs. The game also froze up after I finished 1-8.

Thanks for the feedback C: I want to apologize for these weird errors, like the ones Vinny mentioned. I just played through world 1 a second ago and I didn't get the castle glitch when pausing. the hanging afterwards, OR the freezing up after finishing W1 :c

Yeah I'm sorry about that. I haven't gotten any reports on that happening before, either.

When the game starts up, it says "Powered by Super Mario Fusion Revival", so that might be it.

There's a bug in the game which involves a World 5 item. (Not being said to avoid spoilers for others) Every time you use it, the game crashes.

Correct, but Super Mario Fusion Revival was built from Hello Engine 4, so this game was technically built from Hello Engine 4 as well.

I've found the third star coin in World 4-4, but the problem is the coin, is invisible or the coin is in a lot of blocks platform. Help me.

It's a false-positive; sometimes my computer does that too. Some virus scanners pick up Game Maker games as viruses when they're not.

It's perfectly safe to play the game C:

I've played a lot of Super Mario Remakes and Video Game hacks in my time.

This one touches me to the heart.

Very good game! For us who like the classic Bros games, the engine is very accurate and to me it plays in a much nicer way than SMB3. World 4 is my favorite with the snowballs.

I noticed that in the preview screenshot, there was a glitch in the appearance of the FPS! Look to the bottom-right - there is a cut-off in the FPS.

Have you beat the game too? You have to beat the game AND have 10,000 coins.

Well I beat the game before getting that amount. I used the level select to get 10,000 coins.

Took some time for me to figure out too: Press Shift on "Save" and it'll say "save successful"
- If you pressed enter it would not work, it's a UI glitch I think.

Pressing Enter to Save would not work at all - and it is a bug with the user interface. Also, for the 10,000 coin unlock bug, it is an error in the code.

I've addressed the saving glitch and the retro mode unlocking glitch should be fixed now. I'm about to submit the updated zip folder into the site's queue and I'll be posting a new DL link on the forums. Also, Vinny brought up a glitch that only Win8 users get - sometimes the same sound playing multiple times so they overlap may cause the game to crash. I think I've found a solution to that as well.


EDIT: I can't seem to update for some reason. Every time I click update submission, it takes a few minutes, then gives me an error message saying I'm either trying to complete an already completed action or I'm trying to complete an action from off-site (lol what). So until that goes away, the new version won't be uploaded :c

Wow. I'm so reviewing this later.
So far, I'm loving pretty much every aspect about it! The origin story, the amount of detail each background contains, and even the little touches implemented in various areas are just all absolutely lovely!

Also for the update part - it was a bug in the servers system, or it could be your PC. I updated my SML2 Pipes sprite sheet that fine, no error messages!

Contact VinnyVideo about the problem. It is most likely related to the server. (MFGG moved to a new server for those who didn't know)

I have to say, this game is great. Level 4-3 is my favorite level.

By the way, I got stuck as Luigi in level 3-3. (I think)

It was the level with a warp pipe just past the checkpoint near a tree, with a small "pyramid" of ?-Blocks to the left. I jumped to the top of the pyramid, charged my super jump and jumped into the tree, past the invisible wall. I fell down, and was unable to get back up, even with super jumps. I had to wait for time to run out.

The new version is available. If you have trouble with the game crashing on Windows 8, or if you press enter when trying to save and it just exits the pause screen, this version fixes those buggy-dudes.

Edit: Made a last minute fix. There was a glitch that caused the game to mix retro graphics with 16-bit ones after getting a game over in retro mode. This will be the last update unless a serious game-breaking glitch occurs for several people, as I'd like to focus all my effort on my next project. Thanks for all your support! ^^
