Play Super Mario Bros. As Mega Man, Link, Samus, And More!

What if you could play the original Super Mario Bros. with other classic video game characters, controlling just as they did in their own titles? Well now you can, with Simon Belmont, Link, Samus, Mega Man, and Bill from Contra.


Super Mario Crossover is a flash recreation of the original Super Mario Bros. with a twist. You can choose to play as Mario, sure, but you can also play as five other classic gaming icons, complete with their weapons and special moves. Simon Belmont has his whip. When Bill eats a mushroom, he gains rapid-fire. Mega Man can slide, Link has his boomerang, and Samus can plant bombs in her ball form. Even the music changes to match each character. It's brilliant.

Super Mario Crossover is the first game creation of Newgrounds user ExplodingRabbit.

This is my first game, and I have worked on it for over a year. It has been a long journey, but I think you will see that all of my effort has paid off. I have recreated the entire game of Super Mario Bros, but now you can play as different characters. Each character plays just like they do in their original games with a few modifications to make the experience better.

An amazing idea, brought to life in spectacular fashion. It's the most fun you'll have playing Super Mario Bros. since the first time.

Anyone have luck playing this with a PS3 controller connected via USB? I downloaded JoyToKey as instructed from the site below but I can't seem to get it to work... Any advice?
