About this game

Content Rating: Everyone


Mario Bros. is an action game released by Nintendo in 1983. It's the first game that used "Mario" in the title. Control Mario or Luigi in order to punch the enemies coming out of pipes from below to turn them over and then defeat them. In the two-player mode, both players can choose to work together or work against each other and enjoy the game in a myriad of ways. The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.

While it’s not going to set the world on fire, Arcade Archives Mario Bros. is the best home version of the classic arcade game ever released. Players have been waiting 34 years for a faithful version of Mario Bros. and it’s finally here. You probably already know if you want this game or not, but I’d recommend it to gamers that enjoy classic arcade games and to people who are generally curious about Nintendo history. It’s a dated title, but it still can be fun and addicting to go for a new high score.

Mario Bros. hasn’t aged particularly well over the years and isn’t the big bang of a debut we wanted from Nintendo’s back catalogue on Switch. That being said, playing two-player is still a decent distraction and competing for high scores online is addictive enough to keep you coming back every now and again for another short dose of the plumbers.

Mario Bros. isn’t the best game Nintendo ever made, but the optional Hi-Score and Caravan modes force you into playing it in a way that (surprisingly) makes it far more entertaining. Arcade games of this type were always designed for short, five-minute bursts of play, so the Switch’s handheld nature makes it the perfect platform for this.
