of Super Mario Bros. Crossover
, a cross between traditional Mario levels and characters from non-Mario games, launched this week.
The update incorporates 192 levels, difficulty-based map selection, and 10 central characters from classic series like Mega Man and Ninja Gaiden. Each character can be re-skinned with a library of sprites from their past along with a few surprise inclusions. You can pummel goombas to death with the ice rod as the old man from Zelda 1
, for example.
The conclusion of Version 3.0
allows Exploding Rabbit to pursue development of Super Retro Squad
, what they describe as "a combination between Super Mario World
, Mega Man X
, and Super Mario Bros. Crossover
Their previous Kickstarter campaign
only drew in enough funding for Director Jay Pavlina to work full-time on the game, however, so they've launched a new fundraising effort
. Considering they've released three versions of Super Mario Bros. Crossover
for free, it'd be awful reasonable for fans of that project to help them out.
