Shack's Arcade Corner: Mario Bros.

You may know Mario as both a plumber and pioneer of smooth scrolling. Years before he did anything so audacious as walk to the right and cause new terrain to scroll smoothly into sight, Mario traded in hammers and construction sets for POW blocks and pipes. In this whirlwind tour of the Mario Bros. coin-op game, you’ll be introduced to the Brothers Mario as well as several enemies, items, and effects that became staples just a few years later when Mario became a household name.
