    I know what you mean, I loved that game, I still have it with my repro nintendo system, works like a beauty. Without skipping any levels I can beat in in under 4 hours still.

    maybe they'll knock it down to 400pts

    those 600pt games are screwing up my balances

    Ah, I remember playing this on a table-top gaming console at a local pizza place. My friends and I were so surprised to see it there in that situation and spent countless quarters playing even though it was the same as the NES console version. Great game.

    I remember getting the game. I even remember watching that movie with Fred Savage where his little brother enters a video game tournament and they debuted it there and he won because for some crazy reason he knew where the flute was.

    Good times.

    Not my personal favorite Mario, but arguably one of the best and maybe the best NES game.

    The Wizard! I still remember when I was a kid and first saw the footage of Super Mario Bros 3 in that movie. I was convinced it was going to be the greatest game ever! And to be honest, I wasn't too terribly far off, 'cause even now, it's a pretty dang good game. Ah, fun stuff!

    I wouldn't mind playing it if I could just find the power cord to the old NES.. I wish I remembered where I put it.

    If you have a wii you could just buy it from the vc. They have a gameboy version also.

    My only problem is the way you travel. In that board game like interface. Never liked it as a kid, still don't like it.

    I loved that game. Still remember looking at the box and how much fun it was to play it. Had it for GBA but some girl I loaned it to never brought it back. No nostalgia for me. :(
