I must say right from the start that I got really excited when I discovered “Mario back in time” game available online, because it creates a bridge between the first games of the series and our modern times. Just as you hit the start button you are welcomed by an introduction animation that presents the mission you must accomplish. Bowser and some of his troops discovered a time travel gate and they plan to use it in order to rewrite the history by using their modern and sophisticated weapons and knowledge to defeat the old Super Mario and conquer his kingdom once and for all.
The modern version of Super Mario just found out about their intention so he is rushing to the gate in order to stop them. Yet he arrives a little too late, so he also needs to use the gate and fight the battle against his enemies in the past.
In order to create a better impression of the past the game uses specific and unique graphics for all the sprites used as well as backgrounds.
Mario needs to complete all sort of dangerous challenges and avoid many traps set in his way in every stage in order to find the way to the monster castle where Bowser settled his headquarters.
Once Mario enters the castle he will discover a bonus hidden area where he can collect a new life in order to increase his change of winning the battle.
The final level featuring the battle against the boss is more simple then one may expect, mainly because the game creator built it in such a manner that the player to really feel excited for finishing the game and defeat the evil forces, by using his courage steal the axe and cut the rope holding the suspended stone bridge , where Bowser decided to fight the last battle.
In conclusion this game has a very nice story to tell, it’s very exciting and has a lot of action involved as well so I think Mario fans will consider it among the best flash games available online.
