Today's Drawing - Super Mario Colors

Recognize this Mario in a dashing and unique blue hat? It's Mario's sprite palette from the arcade version of Mario Bros.! For a long time, Nintendo had only a few colors in which to display Mario in games, and couldn't quite decide on which ones to use. As a result, Mario's had some bizarre hair colors and overalls that switch from red to blue and back faster than Porygon. Today's drawing is an Andy Warhol-like study of his sprite palette changes between Donkey Kong and Super Mario World (16 bits resolved this issue rather quickly). I even threw in his various fire flower colors. Click the Mario on the left to see the full chart, or see it after the jump.


Update: I also included Mario's sprite palettes from Super Mario Bros. Special, just to show that at one shameful point in his history, Mario had red gloves.

  4. Speed (sometimes called Spit) is a matching game that is unique because both players play simultaneously and as fast as they can. In Speed, a player tries to 'get rid' of his or her cards by matching them to cards placed face-up on the table. This is a face to face game, though there's actually little interaction between the two opponents. The last few moments of any game of Speed reminds me of solitaire on fast-forward, with hands and cards flying around and rows forming and draining like water pipes. Strange game, Speed. hacked arcade games
