Childhood Games that Deserve to be Remade for Mobile

Childhood Games Deserving To Be Remade On Mobile

There are these childhood games that deserve to be remade on mobile. We wish to have these games that we enjoyed during our childhood be available on Android and iOS.

Gaming is one thing most of us enjoyed during our childhood. Through the years, some of us even continue to do so. It may be on gaming consoles or smartphones.

Let us look back and see what games we enjoyed during our childhood deserve to be remade on mobile.

Super Mario Brothers

The game with the famous plumbers was first released by Nintendo 32 years ago. Super Mario Brothers is one game most of us would have played. This was a successor to the Mario Bros, which was released back in 1983. Players must control Mario, or his brother Luigi, to overcome various obstacles in different environments in the Mushroom Kingdom. The ultimate goal is to save the princess from the evil kidnapper Bowser.

Road Rash

Road Rash is a classic motorcycle racing game released by Electronic Arts (EA) back in 1991. The player has to win illegal street races which tend to get violent. The game became so popular that EA decided to turn it into a series. This gave much income for the company for years. Road Rash first debuted on the Sega Genesis console and over the next few years made its way on to other systems as well.

Pokemon Red/Blue

Nintendo got into the smartphone gaming space recently, with games like Pokemon Go and Mario. The games have seen a lot of downloads and positive reception till now. But still, many people want to bring back the original Pokemon games like the Red and Blue to the mobile platforms.

Pac-Man

Pac-man is considered to be one of the classics and remains to be popular up until now. This is an arcade game developed and released by Namco Bandai back in 1980. It is so popular that on May 2010, Google created an interactive playable doodle of the game for its homepage. The players have to navigate Pac-Man through a maze filled with dots. Pac-Man must eat all the dots and while doing so, there are four ghosts hunting Pac-Man while he finishes the objective.

Contra

Contra is a run and gun action arcade game. The gaming world was taken by a storm, back in 1987, with the release of Contra. This game was developed and published by Konami. The game was so popular that it went on to spawn 10 sequels over the years.

We truly miss these childhood games. Games which made us enjoy childhood. Simple and uncomplicated though these games may have been, but we had fun with it. Thus they deserve to be remade on mobile. So children of today’s generation may experience the fun that we experienced before.

Jelly Mario Is Super Mario On A Whole New Level

This different take on the classic game Super Mario is something you have to experience for yourself.

If you’re on your computer and have some time to spare, you might want to give this game a try. And if you’re a Super Mario fan, you’ll probably be amused and frustrated at the same time.

Developer Stefan Hedman created a free browser game called Jelly Mario. And as its name implies, it’s like Super Mario but minus all the laws of physics.

The iconic video game, with its simple graphics and precise character movements, is entirely upended with everything transformed into a jelly-like state. Instead of being able to jump and stomp on the enemies, Mario would float and wiggle around the screen like a jellyfish.

And it’s not just Mario who’s been turned into the floppy, jelly-ish state that he is in. The entire game has been transformed including the bricks and the green pipes which bend and twist when you try to jump into them.

You are able to move the character using the arrow keys but don’t expect too much. I have tried several times and it seems that Mario has a mind of it’s own, wriggling and floating on its own.

If you think the free browser game has the iconic Mario tune in it, you’re both right and wrong. The developer did put the music in but with the tempo lowered into an unnerving melody. It also bends and contorts based on how your character is moving on-screen.

Currently, the game consists of the first two levels of the original Super Mario Bros game. Curious? You can play the game here.

Good luck!
