Today's entry represents a well deserved break for both Mario and myself.
Mario soars to new heights and goes behind the scenes to find a big surprise. Well it was to me, once upon a time.
Day two and I am seeing double-wide Commodore pixels in my dreams.
For this RetroChallenge I will port the World 1 graphics from Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. 3 to the Commodore 64.
This is not the first time I have done a graphics port of a Super Mario game. Over the past few years I have converted the graphics for Super Mario Bros. 1 & 2.
I am slightly overwhelmed by the number of unique maps, characters, enemies, objects and other assets. I suspect there are more unique graphics in the first world of SMB3 than in the entire game of SMB1. Each day I plan to post my progress, so please join my in this exciting retrographic adventure.
New bandana designs are being produced. The Commodore logo and the system's iconic colour palette join in a confetti-like celebration of geek culture and high fashion.
The Commodore 64 was my first and most beloved computer of all time. As a child, I always dreamed of porting NES games to my aging C64, particularly the Super Mario Bros. series. More examples of my Commodore Mario graphics.
