Finally sick of saving the princess all the time, Mario decides to take his own reward. The truth behind Toad's father is also revealed. (my very first vg parody done entirely in screenshots, note the "jumpiness" of scenes)

I admit that I was pretty confused by this at first. I know realize Toad is the father. Wait, it said it would reveal Toad's father. It can't be Mario? I can tell this was made with just screenshots. The sprite work gets much better later.

It needs to be a lot bigger. It's still great to see Randy's early work. You will forever RIP, dude. It's great to see him improve. The writing could be better too.

A wonderful piece of Newgrounds history introducing people to sprite animations. The only problem is the image glitches where it seems a bit blurry, but good enough to see what's going on.


Hmm... Nario? Isn't it supposed to be Mario? Or is it just a image glitch?

A Noteworthy Classic

Just the first of Randy Solem's grand daddy classic sprite movies! Very nicely done probably my favorite sprite movie of 2000 the quality was nicely done with a good picture fit in it. The comedy was pretty funny with Mario saving the princess yet the first Mario parody of Newgrounds sure wasn't gonna leave us hanging with just that I know! An interesting outcome of events in this Mario flash I wish to see you create more flashes Randy Solem keep up the great work man hope to hear from you someday!

The dialogue was hard to read and I could barely make out the word Reward as it seems a little cut off and the picture is far to zoomed out. The flash was a little predictable taking away a little bit from the comedy altogether. The flash's timing was also to short even for just a quick little Mario Sprite parody.

An alright flash to watch when you've got nothing else to do, just quite short and a little bit predictable and easy to guess the outcome of events that happen.
