Those who love the original Mario games for Nintendo and Super Nintendo will find some of the adventure aspects familiar. In the game, the main character jumps up and stomps other creatures to get coins. There are tunnels, mysteries to solve, and also industrial pipes and swinging hatchets.
The program is engaging in several ways. However, it’s only available for Windows. Gamers interested in playing on Linux or macOS will need to use a virtual machine.
