"If I could make a Mario game, i'd be so happy!"

My first flash game. It was my favorite game series growing up and I became frustrated by the lack of real sequels post Super Mario World. When New Mario Bros came out, I was disappointed at the unimaginative name and lack of anything really "new" about it. Hence, "Old Mario Bros".

The game had numerous issues and was VERY badly programmed and optimized. But it has taught me a lot about being a game developer and many things I put in it were fantastic anyway. The fish-eye backdrops, transparent Boos, glowing mushroom power ups, even the little sparks when a fireball contacts the ground... I can proudly say that I think i've always had attention towards nifty details and the occasional secret. My recent play through put a smile on my face, although some of the janky controls and punishing game overs left a lot to be desired.

Making these games has been a journey. Replaying them has been the equivalency of looking through a box of old photos. I can't figure out when I made Old Mario Bros, but i'm guessing it was around 2006-2008. It's going to be 10 years? Oh man...
