1. MARIO CART
Mario Cart is a flash game spinoff of…. you guessed it, Mario Kart. Wow I know that was a difficult one right? In Mario Cart, you race as Mario against Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi. There are 3 modes to choose from: Career, Single Race, & Time Trial. Career will see you pitted against the 3 other racers as you do battle on each of the 4 tracks in the game. Single race allows you to race the cpu opponents on any track of your choosing and of course Time Trial allows you to race against yourself as you try to beat your best time. Unlike Mario Kart, you do not collect items but instead can make use of the mushrooms (speed boost) placed on the track. Be sure to avoid the Bananas or you’ll skid out and temporarily lose speed.

2. SUPER MARIO FLASH
Super Mario Flash is one of the best Mario Games around. This flash game plays very much like Super Mario Bros. 3 with the cool overworld maps that require you to move around and select a level. Of course there are the usually warps and shortcuts as well that you can take advantage of and the music is spot on. This flash game also comes with a sweet map editor that lets you create your own levels! It’s time consuming but I’ve never seen anything like it before.

3. SUPER MARIO CROSSOVER
Super Mario Crossover packs all your favorite Nintendo characters and personalities into one neat flash game. The world and setting are of the original Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo but instead of only playing as Mario or Luigi, you can now choose between: Mario, Link (from Zelda), Bill (from Contra), Simon (from Castlevania), Samus (from Metroid), or Megaman (from… yes, Megaman). You don’t simply play the game the same way as if you were Mario though. Whoever you pick, you get their abilities too so be prepared to be shooting your enemies down from a distance if you pick Bill or Samus. The downside is that you cannot jump on your enemies heads or faces to knock them out. After completing each stage (or dying), you can choose a new character if you wish so in this way you can maximize each character.
