Super Mario, which last year blew 35 candles, is the videogame mascot par excellence, and Super Mario 64 is one of the titles that most marked the entire sector. Released on Nintendo 64 in 1996 in Japan, the USA and Canada (while in Europe in 1997), Nintendo’s masterpiece not only rewrote the rules of a genre that was among the most popular at the time, namely the platform but in general showed the way to create dense, layered and fun gameplay within a fully explorable 3D environment.
Among the many ways in which it is possible, today, to recover this classic, there is one that is particularly simple and immediate. At this address, in fact, it is possible to reach a version of the game accessible via browser and compatible with practically all devices: and therefore Android smartphones and tablets but also iPhones, iPads, PCs and even Macs.
To be able to have fun even from mobile you will need to connect a controller to your device, while from PC and Mac obviously, you can also start jumping around the garden of Peach’s castle immediately contenting yourself with the keyboard. The possibility to save your progress is very interesting: in all probability, however, the save files will be lost if you clear the browser cache.
In short, it is a version of Super Mario 64 complete in all respects and playable from start to finish. The only limit is time: what it will take for Nintendo, notoriously jealous of its intellectual properties, to put this creation in the crosshairs and make it disappear from circulation. Until then, however, beating Bowser from the browser won’t be just a play on words.
