The Game Boy Legacy: A 25th Anniversary Celebration ⊟
Ahead of the Game Boy’s 25th birthday (it debuted in Japan on April 21, 1989), USgamers Jeremy Parish published a magnificent retrospective on the handheld. It’s a great tribute to the underpowered portable and its father Gunpei Yokoi, and I’m not just saying that because JC and I contributed a handful of words to the piece! Go read it here.

I’ve read this article about some crazy investor ask Nintendo to make some mobile game that player have to pay to increase Mario’s jumping skill.

Welcome to Super Mario Bros. Mobile Edition, free to play! Tap your screen to start the game.

Mamamia there’s a Goomba! To defeat the enemy, you have to buy “Jump” ability now!

The gameplay is very simple, Mario will run himself, all you have to do is tap the screen and help Mario jump!

Oh no, time’s up! Buy “B Dash” ability to help Mario run faster!

Wow, you found the warp zone! Pay $1.00 to skip a level. The more you pay, the more levels you can skip!

Thank you Mario!

But you have to pay more to rescue the princess!

And I forgot to say… If you want to play as Luigi, you also have to pay! There is no such thing as a free lunch. It’s fair, right?
Dear Nintendo please don’t let it happen, don’t break our heart. He is Mario, the “Jumpman”, the “Mr. Video Game”. He should jump proud and free. He should jump higher with player’s skill increased, not player’s payment increased.
