Super Mario Bros., On The...Atari? Huh?

While the Mario Brothers did make an official appearance on an Atari console, that was the original Mario Bros. arcade game, not a Super Mario Bros. platformer.

So this footage you see up top, as good as it looks, isn't from a real game. It's a demo made by Atari Age forum member Sprybug, showing what Super Mario Bros. could have looked like on the Atari.

It of course looks terrible. But I love the fireball effect. It's so casual.

    Mario Bros. the original arcade game, was on all major platforms at the time from memory? But yeah, Super Mario Bros. Only Nintendo (obviously). I had Mario Bros. on the C64, Atari and PC years back.
