Mario Bros. Classic

The goal is to knock the bad guys on their back and then kick them before the other enemies, fireballs, or iceburgs can get you. Watch out for that super fast enemy at the end of each phase!

Spiny: Most common enemy, just walks in a straight line, only changing direction when hitting an obstacle. One hit will knock them down and out.

Crab: These tough guys also walk in a straight line, but they require two hits to knock on their back. After one hit, they are faster than they were before.

Fly: These guys bounce along in arcing patterns, they can jump obstacles sometimes. They require one hit to knock them on their backs.

Green Fireball: Appears at one side of the screen, and then flies across in a zig-zag pattern to disappear on the far side.

Red Fireball: Appears near the top of the area, they bounce around till they get a Mario Bros. Or they are killed.

Iceburg: They can be killed, but if they get to a platform and stop, they will ice the entire area, making it super slippery for walking!

POW Block: When hit, this counts as one hit to an enemy (provided they are touching the ground at the time). This means any crabs that are untouched will get enraged, other enemies will flip over, and any enemies on their backs will flip back to their feet. This Item does not affect either type of Fireball.

Coins: For every enemy you kill, a Coin will soon come out of the pipes at the top of the screen. Collect them for bonus points.
