Super Mario Bros for Facebook

Super Mario Bros was the first videogame I ever owned. Yes, I’m that old. And come to think of it, the 8-bit Nintendo game marked me for life. I love mushrooms, but I don’t like turtles, and my princess is in another castle (just for now, I’ll see her tonight though).

It would’ve been a completely different and rather unpleasant experience for me if Super Mario Bros had been released two decades later, anno 2010. Nintendo would’ve had to make a cross-platform game , compatible with the iPhone and Facebook. And boy, with all the “Publish this story to your Facebook Wall” popups, the gameplay would’ve sucked! At least according to the doom scenario of Zack Hiwiller, a game designer who formerly worked for Electronic Arts and made these enjoyable, mockup screenshots of Super Mario Bros 2010, Facebook edition (which, for the record, doesn’t exist).

Which other Mario elements would you port to a Facebook Mario game?
