Made by homebrew developer DahrkDaiz, Mario Adventure Mario is a completely new Mario game made from modifications to the Super Mario Bros. 3 game engine for the NES.
Completely new worlds and new levels. The level design is stellar as far as hacks go, with clever engineering and interactions between blocks, items, power-ups, and enemies.
Modified graphics, especially of the environments, backgrounds, coins, blocks, and some enemies. And they all look professional, like they could be official Nintendo originals. Notably, a few enemies were edited into shy-guys and shy-guy derivatives (who originally appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2). The pipes and the “?” blocks look a lot cooler, with a neat shading effect, and the “P” coin-to-brick block has been replaced with a bubbling potion.
