The Mario Brothers have done it again. They've foiled King Koopa's plans and now they rejoice with the rest of the Mushroom kingdom. But Luigi has other plans. He is tired of playing second fiddle to his pudgy older brother. How many times does he have to save the day before he get's a little recognition...

What happened to you, Mr. Lybeck?

It was years ago. I saw this flash for the very first time on your own site. Since flash movies about video games were just beginning to bloom, this was considred to be a masterpiece.

This flash was a project originally started in 2000. It was originally three parts, which were later combined into the one flash which is shown here. I remember waiting for this flash's completion just to see how it would end. When it did, it ended on a cliffhanger that aches me to this day.

I don't remember exactly, but I think Mr. Lybeck was planning on making this into a series along with a separate Mega Man flash game and another flash series based on Super Metroid. However, Mr. Lybeck disappeared from the internet shortly after the Metroid movie was made. His site then vanished a few years later.

It is unknown as to what happened to Clark Lybeck. He could be using a new online alias without any ties to his old one, or he could even be deceased.

We'll never know if Mario was able to launch a counter-attack. We'll never know if Luigi would have stayed the tyrannical madman he had become. We'll never know if Wario was still alive after being beaten with an iron bar. We'll never know where the heck the Princess was during all of this. All of these things will forever be an eternal mystery.

I don't know what happened to you Mr. Lybeck, and perhaps no one does, and perhaps no one ever will. However, you were an inspiration to many others, and you helped create a genre of flash movies which has the unique ability to both entertain and annoy countless people. I just wish that you had continued on to make countless other wonderful flashes.

You'll probably never read this, but it doesn't matter because it has to be said.

Thank you, Clark Lybeck.

This is horrible...

Okay, i sugest that you take this, scrap it, and start over, not 'cause no sound, hell, that made it good for dramatic affect, but, i have seen many flashes, and, well, you could've done better, so, please, remake this and work on it, other than that, it was ok, but still poorly made. Here's why.

-Graphics: 6- you could've done a little better, that's true, but you can improve over time, i trust you.

-Style: 4- okay, so luigi doesn't get all the credit, so what? i don't think he would let wario help him in killing everyone in the M.K.

-Sound: 4- i think the song should be a little better, like a titanic song like randy solems' Rise Of The Mushroom Kingdom, it will help.

-Violence: 4- okay, when someone cuts someone's head in the neck, the sword doesn't appear over his head, and his head should fall of or somthin'.

-Interactivity: 1- Uhh... think you can add a credits button at the end?

-Humor: 0- well, i don't think this one matters.......

_______________Overall: A BIG FAT 4...out of ten._______________

Nice idea but....

I like the idea but the lack of time (or effort) ruined it for me.
