You may be able to play at Mondial 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. eyes closed, but can you play it at the speed of lightning while other Marios throw you turtle shells? Maybe someone else is probably better. You can find out by playing Mario Royale in your browser right now. Do not wait too long, though. Nintendo is sure to get this purged internet game soon.
As its name indicates, Mario Royale is a royal battle style game based on Super Mario Bros. (original of NES). If Tetris can turn into a royal battle, why not Mario?
Each round starts with 75 players in a crazy race for the finish line, but that number will quickly drop by half. The game showcases you, but there are dozens of semi-translucent Marios around you playing the same game in the same environment. Some of them will meet a Goomba and others will fall into a hole, but even if you do not make a mistake, you can not win unless you are quick.
Mario Royale is a race, but it's not only about speed. The first three players to complete four randomly selected stages among Super Mario Bros. or The Lost Levels are in the winner's circle. While two Marios can not crash, they can use shells and bonuses to eliminate competition. Only one person can get each power up, which makes them very useful. It's about knowing how to balance power-ups, speed and level awareness.
You only need a browser and a keyboard to start playing, but the controllers are also supported. The keyboard controls are simple, as can be expected from this game: WASD to move and space to jump.
Mario Royale comes from YouTuber and developer InfernoPlus, who recognizes the trailer he fully expects. Nintendo have a problem with this game. The company has always worked on fan projects, as fantastic as they are. The game includes a disclaimer when loading that indicates that the code base is the property of InfernoPlus. Of course, Nintendo owns the characters and will not fail to call for a long time. The disclaimer also politely asks Nintendo not to file a scary lawsuit. At the time of publishing this publication, a few thousand people online are playing the game. The lawyers will soon intervene.
