I really did find myself rooting for those Thwomps. I mean, Mario has all those extra lives. It doesn't make that much difference if they kill him anyway. I just loved hearing that "Super Mario World" music. It's my favorite video game! The voices were quite funny.
I wasn't sure if they'd talk at first. The sprite work is so good. I like all the fine details. At least they got to try. Dang, I'd be bored after five years.
