This is not a normal version of Super Mario. This platform adventure is very unfair. There are hidden booby traps, try to avoid these and get the final flag. Nothing is as it seems!

Arrow Keys = Movement

Good luck and remember nothing is as it seems!

I hate this game..

Well, it's very challenging and at the same time addicting. :P Good job, keep it up.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

the term unfair is way underestimated.

because the chance that you make it for the first time is 0%, but because of that it is very funny. but not everyone likes it. but this is very well made. animation, letter drawing, sprite techniques, and especially the booby traps, all are very well made, keep this up.

A lot like the unfair platformer but with a twist, the signs don't always tell the truth. :-) Awsome game!

Seem same before..

Only changed everything to mario theme.

... but unplayable.
Good realization, but I don't find it really interesting to play, you can't make two steps without falling!

great idea...

I had fun with this, Very hard though,,, Should start off a little easier and get harder as the levels go by...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

fun....and great humor

I had alot of fun with this, it is difficult but the humor ans how fun it is outweighs that ..


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

hmmmm interesting

It's more of a memorization game than an actual platformer....very sneaky of you XD

I like these kinda of games. I think they add pazazz to original games like Mario.

Nice job :D

Pretty cool spin on Mario. I'd have to agree that it's more of a memory game. You should try to make it so the traps change when you die. Then it really would be unfair ^.^


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Hahahaahah oh shit man!

Oh man you're not kidding when you say this is unfair. It's playable to say the least to see how unfair this game will get. And just the unpredictable traps. I gave up around the first check point. Good game but hella hard!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Unfair indeed but yet i couldnt help but laugh my ass off when i thought i landed on a safe spot and then the ground fell, or spikes hit me

Awesome spin off of the unfair platformer

I loved it. I can't seem to get passed the first level but it's funny as hell, I was always scratching my head every time I died. I stopped playing after 105 deaths XD

You should make the first level a tiny bit easier though


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Oh meh GAWD. I beat level 1....


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not too bad

Bit frustrating at times, made it to level 5? I guess? The one after Big Boo. 126 deaths and I was finished for the time being. Mind you, I played through and beat Kaizo Mario World (look it up) so it was a little reminiscent of that. Not bad, but I think there should be "save timing" where if you land on a fall block or rigged spot you have a short amount of time to jump off of that block before you die. It would pick the pace of the game up and give it a more intense feel, rather than simply frustrating.

Keep up your work! ^.^

A bit too unfair.. and other problems

Intresting cerbral Mario game, though dam.. its harder than Lost Levels, and its as hard as a rom hack , only your not allowed save states....
I have a few issues:

1) The first level is far too hard and will invairbly put people off. I think its harder than the 2 and 3rd levels, and definately harder than the 5th level. Yes, you want to show people its a hard game. But if its TOO difaculty people arne't going to play anyway further. Hell I neared 100 and was very close to giving up.

2) Mario games this hard come with Save states for a reason. Doing the same obnxious obstacles gets annoying. You are generous with check points so I guess its not THAT big a problem

3) The 6th level crosses the line from "incredibly hard, taxing, frustrating but just about fun" game to "A load of bullshit". Its not the design so much as the dodgy collison detection. The spikers under the first block should not be able to kill me when i drop down. The red sping thing is able to kill me when im not touching it, but its almost next to me. The fact I have to push down the block, jump and dodge the cheating spiney EVERYTIME I DIE is annoying. Incidnetly that how whole "freeze when you bump into a object" is kinda bullshitty.
The spkes in the second area act like the spiney. You also go WAY too far with the fake lands, and having to do the whole push block while dodigng spiney and 0VER 9000 spikes EVERY SINGLE TIME I DIE (see complaint 1) goes beyond frustrating. Its not so much that it increases the diffaculty in that the frustration and tedium make playng the game anymore too lame and unfun

4) What the hell did you do to the jump controls? I've played all the marios, and even in Lost Levels, you CAN jump if you land on a falling area, you just have to be fast. The way the game uatomatically freezes you is a load of crap. Being able to dodge wouldn't kill the diffauclty of this game. I know you probably did this on purpose but its still annoying

Its an intresting game and some of the messages, while sadistic are actually funny. Some of the others are just annoying. You REALLY should have tested you 6th level

Well.. it's pretty much just trial and error all the way through but it was fun to find all the traps and stuff along the way. You probably hoped nobody would catch it but this is basically a direct clone of "The Unfair Platformer" but with mario sprites (for a game, you can do better than sprites...) so you lost some points for that. Even the traps are a lot similar. The character sprites, background sprites and music were all from different games too, which I am not a big fan of, honestly. It was good for a game you won't go back to. Try a little more originality next time.

i thought it was coll since you need to remember what the next move is likeon the loder games from back in the day

Isn't it just...

Isn't it just a copy of the Unfair Platformer? I mean, the traps and concept are exactly the same... It seems a bit downgraded from the original too...


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Unfair indeed

Indeed this was one unfair Mario game with all the traps and just straight cheap moments though i have seen hacks of Mario games such as this before with all the cheapness but nice way to bring it to flash here on Newgrounds and i think it deserves a spot on the Mario collection page. =)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

screw this game

its fun and i actually made past the first level but its just too hard so g luck beating it.


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars


i agree with addisback.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


this is hard


Rated 0 / 5 stars

copy of unfair platformer

its the EXACT same concept, same traps, same checkpoint, same moving spike block, except 1 thing: it made no sense! there was no REAL way to tell where to go unlike unfair PLATFORMER where it would say "these message boxes always tell the truth" which they did. yours were just random and took no skill to win, just 100s of tries to guess where the places that kill you are. try making a different type of flash game. unfair platform type games are NOT your style. i think what i REALLY disliked was that you put traps in middle of nothing. at least in unfair platformer the only traps that you couldnt see were just boxes in your way, yours are instant death spikes. sorry, 0 stars.

look at the dates the two games where created retard.


Rated 2 / 5 stars


look at the dates the two games were created retard.

Unfair Platformer was created two years before this game.
I completely agree with Matt1594 it was much too "guessy" making for a much more boring game. also the puzzles weren't hard the platforming was easy it was just so frustrating with not enough satisfaction.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

close but no cigar

like a few people have said already, just like a slightly crap version of unfair platformer if you ask me. not a bad game, but it needs more guidance, too much guess work which just makes it annoying. although to be honest, i think depict1 is by far the best in the "trick platformer" category.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


That was so awesome..your style is so great and unique I love watching all of your stuff. Thank you!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


it good and unfair so Good luck and remember nothing is as it seems!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

clever...i gess

It was ok but there were realy no hints or ways to know what would trick you. doesnt stand up to unfair platformer at all but it entertained me a little bit. WAY to random though.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love this game as it is challenging, and almost impossible to complete.
