Are you looking for the fan-made remake, Mario Forever Remake or its Flash version, Mario Forever Flash?

Mario Forever (also known as Super Mario 3: Mario Forever) is a PC fan-game based on one of the most popular Nintendo games, Super Mario Bros. The game has been developed by Softendo (Buziol Games until 2009). The game reproduces classic styles of the Super Mario Bros. platformer series, with slightly different graphics and musics from non-Super Mario games. The game has become popular, reaching the highest position in Platformer Games in CNET Download (a website that Softendo themselves used to distribute the game), receiving more than 10 million downloads.

Softendo description

If you remember the oldest of Mario games, you cannot just pass this title by! Super Mario 3 : Mario Forever is a free remake of the classic Super Mario Bros game, which should make you busy for long hours, even if you haven't played Mario 3 before. Impersonate the friendly plumber once more to guide him through 8 different worlds placed on maps of this platform game, through countless monsters and obstacles, to help him beat the evil dragon Koopa or Bowser and save the imprisoned Princess Peach - all while listening to pleasant, cheerful music. Super Mario 3 : Mario Forever is really a classic Mario remake. Once again you strap on your wrench and hardhat and guide the chubby plumber through many skillfully made levels. The diversity of the levels is very impressive. Game has also renewed graphics and much better scrolling in comparison to the original Mario. You will have to get through levels ranging from underwater caverns to levels filled with hot lava. Of course, there are also many novelties in the gameplay - an option to save your game, brand new enemies and bonuses are only a few of them! However, fans of the original old Mario don't have to fear - it is still the same game, only upgraded. Collecting coins, jumping into the pipes, hidden levels - there are still here! Don't hesitate to download Mario Forever now - but remember, this video game.

Super Mario 3: Mario Forever also has a mini free Mario games like Mario Minix, Super Mario Starman Running, Mario Goomba Party, Mario Funny tanks and more. For example Mario Minix pack is addressed mainly to players, who got bored playing the classic Mario platform games - but also for beginners, who are new to the Mario world and haven't known the adventures of the famous plumber yet. This package consists of one game mode,. The objectives for this mode of is simple - your mission is to collect as many points as you can by taking advantage of means known from Super Mario Bros: not only catching the golden coins, thrown out from the pipes, but also stomping on the enemies. But be careful - if you fail to hit the enemy, it may hit you! And, remember, that spikeys cannot be stomped on - they will harm you, if you try! The only way to get rid of them and get your points is to use the Koopa Troopa shells (by using this method, you can create combos and make additional points!). There are no levels to complete and no princesses to save - this time it is all about gaining as many points.

October 25, 2017

  • [FIX] World 9's map progress now is correct (9-3 and 9-4 map frames are swapped, though);
  • [FIX] Plenty of reported bugs now are fixed.


Interestingly enough, Version 4.1 was updated on October 28th, 2008 but was not given a new version number. The modified date on Mario Worker in the copy we have and the date being changed on CNET Download at the time corroborates this. The most likely reason for this is that Buziol Games noticed the popularity of the game and wanted to add to it to compensate.
The only changes seem to be the updated Mario Worker executable and the installer providing a toolbar, which is also corroborated by reviews on CNET Download from October 29th (the earliest time there is a snapshot from around then) complaining about one while reviews from October 26th, just three days earlier, being overly positive and not mentioning any toolbars.

Mario Forever contains eight basic worlds, as well as numerous extra worlds and levels, accessible from the Save Game Room, or from some levels of the main game.
