Super Mario Pac is one of the best Super Mario clones for PC you will likely find. This is not only because it remains faithful to the simple-yet-addictive gameplay of Nintendo's blockbuster, but also because of new twists that dispel the deja vu. |
Super Mario Pac looks exactly like its model, but plays quite differently. Instead of the platform action, the game has one screen per level and combines the gameplay of Super Mario with Jetpac, a classic Spectrum ZX game. Like the Jetpac guy, Mario is now equipped with FLUDD, a cool water cannon that can thrust him into the air. On each screen, your goal is to collect and assemble Mario's pipe escape route and poison any plants in his way. FLUDD can be used to drench the attacking enemies – but it must be refilled once in a while before running out of water. It's a small wonder nobody has thought to combine the two games until now. Whether you like Super Mario or Jetpac or – more likely – both, you will enjoy this excellent fanmade remake. Two thumbs up, way up!
