Posted October 27, 2018 09:37:22 The series that began as a side-scrolling shooter has morphed into a full-fledged adventure game in its own right.
As the iconic Nintendo 64 RPG Super Mario Sunshine debuted in 1991, it quickly became the pinnacle of Nintendo’s Super Nintendo hardware.
As time passed, however, the franchise took on a more traditional approach.
Players could choose to play the game in a single-player mode, which would let them explore each world in a fully-realized setting, or as a cooperative, multi-player experience that involved playing with a friend.
The game’s story was well-crafted, as players could progress through stages as Mario and his friends, solving the puzzles and defeating enemies to unlock more powerful items.
But the series’ most memorable feature, as well as its most enduring, was its use of the Super Nintendo’s legendary graphics.
When Mario and Luigi were first introduced to the series in 1991’s Super Mario Galaxy, the game’s visuals were not as advanced as they are today.
Rather than making use of a 16-bit sprite chip, Super Mario Bros. featured a sprite-based graphics engine, and the graphics were pretty standard for the time.
This allowed the games to play nicely on both the Nintendo 64 and the Super Famicom, though the game would often look pixelated.
As with many of Nintendo games, Super Smash Bros. became a hit in the early 2000s, as its visuals helped create a memorable experience for players of all ages.
