SummaryDoes this Mario educational typing game really have a use?
The GoodBasically, it does have some positives and negatives as a kid's typing tutor game. The positives are that it does have some good educational value, being a Nintendo license to most of the Super Mario Brothers games on the NES consoles. The voice of Mario really adds a great excitement for young children, and of course, the sound effects and music are just about as a good average in terms of quality. I just want to point out some detail in this game other than what you will find in other current typing tutor programs out there: the colour identification of the keys.
The BadNow onto the negatives! First, it wouldn't be good for a teenager or adult despite the game's age rating on the box. Second, you have to type in two spaces in order to go on to the next line. Third, a few of the sound effects could use some improvement in terms of quality. Fourth, The Mario head that you will most likely see in this game is pre-rendered in 3-D as video files. Does this mean that Mario was in a 2-D form back then? I tell ya! This is 90s stuff, and things don't look great in terms of quality as it is today! Finally, most of the artwork in this game is cheaply done!
