The first game we’re going to discuss is Super Mario World. Released as a launch title for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1990, it was an instant hit. It built upon the premise and style of its predecessors but brought so much more.
Initially, the game seems simple. The controls are intuitive but difficult to master, particularly past world one. But play it for 30 minutes and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s way better than you remember.
A particular highlight is a memorable soundtrack, which never ever gets annoying even though you might be playing a few levels more than a handful of times (Koji Kondo composed the music used in Super Mario World, using only an electronic keyboard).
The resolution of the original game was tiny in comparison to what TVs can display today, but we decided to give it a try on a brand new 4K TV. There was no noticeable pixelation or fuzziness. In fact, it was crystal clear, responsive and a blast to play!
Mario on 50″ 4K screen – never in Miyamoto’s dreams.
It’s been rereleased a number of times, but why not play in style on your own HDTV? It’s true gaming gold and is still considered one of the greatest games of all time.
