Day 11 : Super Mario Bros 3 on NES (1988)

by on Mar.21, 2010, under lutris

It rarely get better than this : Super Mario Bros 3 is one of the very best games ever made. It’s by far the best Mario on the NES at least.

The runner used for the NES is Mednafen, which also runs all GameBoy, Lynx and PC Engine games. Mednafen is also a very complex emulator with tons of options. Sadly, it seems that Mednafen authors hate Europeans and AZERTY keyboard users (They’re not the only ones, many developers are QWERTY-centric).

With Lutris you don’t have to worry about this as your emulator will hopefully be completely configured before the game starts. There is still many options to implement in Lutris in order to appreciate the full potential of Mednafen but for now you can play NES games without any fuss and that’s what matters the most.

Eat a leaf, become a racoon

Oh and by the way, don’t bother telling me about fceu. I don’t see the point in having another emulator for NES which isn’t as good as mednafen. At least Mednafen runs well on the OLPC…
