Random: A terrible Mario game has somehow made its way to the Xbox Store

Here’s a description of the game via the now-defunct Xbox Store page (thanks to our friends over at Pure Xbox): “The adventures of Super marioner continue. This time with 3D design. Travel through the jungle with marioner. Jump between platforms. Try not to fall in this endless speeding adventure. You have 3 rights. Try to make the highest record.” “Jump between platforms”. Well, it’s an accurate description, at least, though it doesn’t particularly fill us with much enthusiasm.

Over the years, we’ve seen our fair share of bad Super Mario game remakes, but one of the worst recently made its way onto the Xbox Store – at least for a short time. Supertan Marioner 3D Infinity World Adventures is sadly no longer playable, but it may be for the best, as the game foregoes the meticulously crafted levels of legitimate Super Mario games in favour of a side-scrolling endless runner. Not really the follow-up to Super Mario Run that we had hoped for!

Highlights

  • On a positive note, it’s games like this that make us truly appreciate the craft that goes into making true Super Mario titles. Here’s hoping Supertan Marioner 3D Infinity World Adventures doesn’t reappear somewhere down the line; let’s take a moment to think of the poor individuals who spent money on this game. What do you think of this Super Mario clone? Have you seen other atrocities even worse? Let us know!
