Hey there! This is a game in the style of mario brothers but with a twist. You can shoot bullets but with limited ammo. Don't worry though, if you miss your shot you can always rewind so that the bullet comes back to you! This can also allow you to hit enemies! 

This game is made to be quite difficult, however if you go into the settings there's a "limitless mode" which takes away the lives, making it less like the original mario brothers games, but much more playable :D

That game was very fun.  The rewindable bullet concept is creative.  I'd love to see this implemented more in other games.  Thanks much.


Glad you enjoyed it! :D

You're welcome.

This game looks interesting.  I'll try it.

Hi. I recorded your game on the video. It was amusing and engaging. It is too difficult for me, tho. I could not finish the game more than three times. It becomes annoying to restart the game from the very beginning at some point. I would also suggest you add some camera anchors so I would not see farther than the map border. If you want to cut your game out of the video, let me know. However, I still hope you like the video, and if you like such content, please subscribe.

game is good but we should have more heallth

Thanks for the feedback! There is a limitless option in the bottom left that turns off the limited health, it was set to 3 to link to the original mario brothers games :D

Loved the game! Had a lot of fun with it, I did not see the comment about the limitless mode until it was too late haha but oh well! xD


Haha glad you enjoyed it! I'll check out the video when I get a chance, thanks for making it :)

It's a nice mechanic and the game looks and sounds awesome. The flip animation is super cool . My main problem was when I ran out of bullets so I just walked past the enemies. Also camera should be a bit lower so I can see the ground while jumping. But overall quite a good game

Thanks, I'm glad you've liked it! All of the issues you mentioned have been fixed in the update over on newgrounds!

this is really fun!

Thanks! :)

This game is really good! Good job

Thanks, really appreciate it!

The game has some nice polish. It looks and sounds great while also having a nice mechanic. I must say that the tutorial is a but unfair, namely with the spikes. I died to them multiple times not knowing there were spikes on the floor because the screen scroll didn't show them before I landed. The combat is really fun though so I wish it was forced on the player more, as in many areas it seemed the best strategy was just to run past the enemies.

All things considered though this is a very well developed game. Good work!

Thanks a lot! I've heard quite a few complaints about the spikes and camera so that's definitely one of the things I'll be fixing up after the jam. Glad to hear you enjoyed it all the same! 

i like the shoother mechanic 

an the jump animation is so cool and music too 

 and and is so coooooool :)

Thanks! :D

thaks you for make a cooool Game :D

I got a chance to play your game and it is as advertise of Super Mario Bros, but with crosshair shooter. There are single suggestion and a question for the game. My only suggestion is change the jump button to the up arrow because you have to hold the control the move and mouse to shoot and space to jump to which are trouble muscles memory to control the game. My question is there any upgrade weapon later in the game? I do hope this question and suggestion improve your game.

Thanks those certainly help a lot! I was thinking of doing some quick updates after the jam had ended so I'll definitely keep those in mind :) 

No problem.
