Mario Is Missing isn't quite as good on the NES as it is on the Super NES – it's missing a bit of the graphical humour – but it packs in almost as much game-play and educational value.
can be tediously repetitive, and you don’t really even have to talk to
anyone to clear a level – you can simply guess at the multiple choice
questions, nullifying the game’s educational purpose. However,
the world facts this game hopes to impart are interesting, and the
writing, with its many puns, rhymes, and jokey quiz answers, can be
pretty entertaining, making it worth a try.
The only thing Mario is Missing taught me as a young boy was to avoid any Mario-themed games not made by Nintendo. Until today, I had never played the NES version, but had wrangled with the SNES version. Outside of better graphics and slightly less complicated controls, they’re almost the same games. A definite miss.
