SM PC-Games in general
The SM PC-Games are free games ("Freeware") which you can download over the internet and which work on every computer with a Windows-OS.
The first parts of the gamesserial are only playable in German, after Super Mario PC Fun 2 and Challenge 6 they are also translated into English (Super Mario PC Fun 2 by the way also into French).
The SM PC-Games are quite popular (and have quite high download- and visitor-numbers), which is mainly caused by the RPG-atmosphere that is uncommon for platform games. This, and a mixture of original and own graphics, makes them so special. Additionally they work on every PC and they don't take a lot of space (1-5 MB) so that you can easily download them, even with a slow internet-connection. As a serial, the SM PC-Games (which should first be called SM RPG-Games because of the already mentioned RPG-atmosphere) also have the advantage that they are generally always getting better, at least in graphical and technical aspects.
The SM PC-Games are composed by two types :
- SM PC Challenge : These are the "normal" 2D platform games.
- SM PC Fun : Those minigames-collections consist of many small games which you can play with different heroes in different genres.
The following games are already published (you can download them here) :
- Older SM PC-Games
The first games of the serial weren't translated into English. They are technically and graphically not as good as newer games but also Super Mario PC Challenge 1-5 and the first SM PC Fun are funny.
- Super Mario PC Challenge 6
This SM PC-Game offers nice levels in the classical Mario-atmosphere. It is newer than SM PC Fun 2, so technically a bit better.
- Super Mario PC Challenge 7
The newest part of the SM PC-Games contains again many graphical and technical improvements. The style is more homogenous and looks more like the one known from the Nintendo-games without simply copying it. All in all a must-have for fans!
- Super Mario PC Fun 2
This minigames-collection gives you the opportunity to play with different heroes (Mario, Luigi, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, Koopa ...) in different game-genres (platform, Mariokart-races, RPG, sport ...). SM PC Fun 2 has surely something pleasant for everybody!
