New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Mario Bros
« on: October 05, 2014, 00:52:20 AM »
So, we all know that Atari released Mario Bros on the 2600, right?  There's even been a hack of that game to give it better character sprites (Return of Mario Bros).  Well, be ready to be blown away at what DINTAR816 has accomplished, so far, with his version of Mario Bros.  DINTAR816 is the same programmer working on a new version of Pac-Man for the 2600.  Here is a video showing just what the graphics and sound are like.  There are no other game mechanics yet.  Check out the development thread here:  A better mario bros for atari 2600.  I've posted the binary as well.

It sure does!  And it sounds great.  It is hard to believe those sounds are from a 2600!

Nintendo will not be happy to see their properties on a game not authorized. I do not understand why people are so stupid and not renaming the games allowing to break out of the gray market. Same for pacman...

It is not being sold anywhere and it is far away from even being finished.  Nintendo would only take issue if it were being sold.  Focus on the fact this is a technical accomplishment on the 2600.
