General Commentary and Game Overview
Super Mario PC challenge 6, may sound challenging, and it is for the wrong reasons. Read on to find out how.
Pros Decent enough graphics, looks like a quality RPG at first, made in C++
Cons HORRIBLE gameplay, some sprites don't match much, SMPCC6 sounds like a hack rather than a game to me.
2 / 10
Bad point. The gameplay is bad, REALLY bad. Mario/Luigi can walk fine, but their jumping patterns are scary. Mario will always jump a set distance when facing left or right, and very rarely kills enemies this way. This is extremely annoying when you are jumping between small platforms, as you aer liable to fall off. Mario will die if he does not 'land' on the enemy, but as the jumping is so bad, Mario will probably land next to it, and die. The enemies movement is very 'blocky' and Mario cannot get coins unless you press Uup and Enter. This will make Mario jump upwards, and look like an idiot while doing so.
6 / 10
The graphics are ripped from various Mario SNES games, but also include some other graphics (Like grass, dirt etc.) that aren't from any Mario game at all. Because of this, the game looks like Mario characters have been placed in a completely different game, and therefore looks... bad.
6 / 10
Nothing much to comment on about the sound. There is only music, that triggers when you go to a particular level. (When you start off there is no music, but when you go to the first level, music plays through both the level, and the map). Other than this, the many of the MIDIs are unheard of, so you don't have the same MIDIs from another game.
3 / 10
It's a full game, but an irritating one at that. Actually getting the replay value out of this will be a hard task, and probably not worth it in the end.
Final Words
4 / 10
I know programming a game like this takes quite a long time, but this game is one of the most annoyingly made games I've ever played. Good luck next time.
