* Freeware Mario, grab it while it lasts

Press The Buttons highlights a freeware Super Mario game that actually looks pretty entertaining, but which might get shut down shortly.


Created by HermitGames without permission from Nintendo, Super Mario Pac puts players in control of classic 2D Mario. Equipped with the FLUDD water pack, Mario must collect pieces of a warp pipe, assemble them, and then exterminate the Piranha Plant living inside. FLUDD functions as both a jetpack and a weapon, and when the water supply runs dry Mario must get a refill at the local water hole. Download this one while you can; Nintendo will probably unleash the lawyers sooner than later and it's definitely a keeper, so don't wait too long.
It looks like they stripped out a lot of Super Mario World's graphics, which is likely what'll get them in trouble if Big N comes calling.
