Here you can download Mario. Because many people have trouble unpacking
ZIP files, you can simply download the executable (save this file to
disk and then run it):
You don't need anything else and it doesn't have to be installed, you
can simply run it. However, if you want to be able to use a joystick,
also download MARIOJOY.BAT, save it at the
same location as MARIO.EXE, and use this to start the game (for
advanced users: instead, you can run the command
mario -j to enable joystick).
During the game, you can walk with [Left] and
[Right] and jump with [Alt] . Hold
[Ctrl] down to run faster and jump
further. Fire with [Space] (you can use [Up] or
[Down] to aim while firing). Press [Down]
at the end of a level to go down into the pipe.
Finally, to quit the game, press [Esc] .
If you already have this game but you found it somewhere else, make
sure you get the version from this page. Chances are that you have
a hacked version (which is incomplete).
You can know if you do have the correct version if the fourth level
looks like this (see the image at the right).
