The last real and official Super Mario Bros. game came out ten years ago. Since then, 2D fans have had to resort to creations in other games. However, one fan has been working on a full 2D Mario game for years, and you can even play it yourself.

Almost 1,000 hours of work: Fan brings you a classic 2D Mario
It’s not uncommon for players to want a sequel to something but not get it from the developers. Fan projects are sometimes a blessing – like that of MedroidMike64. He has put around 1,000 hours of work into his Super Mario Bros. 5 over the past seven years. It’s recently finished and you can now play it yourself.
It’s true that Super Mario Bros. 5 isn’t an official successor, but you can’t tell by looking at the game. It’s designed as a classic 2D Mario and has everything that the classic jump and run games offer and even more. Overall, MedroidMike64 offers you 40 two-dimensional levels in eight worlds – well-known opponents and obstacles should not be missing.
The gameplay is very classic Mario. With the game he wants to “offer something that Nintendo should have done a long time ago. Namely making a full Mario game in Super Mario Maker 2 that’s freakin’ fun,” the developer said on Twitter.
