Meh. Its basic breakout and while its nice to have Mario feature and have the occasional Mario themed level design, there just isnt enough content to make it worthwhile.


For whatever reason, Nintendo made a Mario Breakout and, despite knowing the branding power of Mario by 1989, didn't market it as a Mario game. I don't know what the thought was there, but the game is a solid enough version of breakout on a machine that was perfect for ports of the few successes that defined gaming in its infancy.
