Excellent Platforming Battles

For all those of you who wondered what would happen if mario could jump on himself, I bring you...

Super Mario War

Now with final exams being done, at long freaking last. I finally got some time to sit down and play around with a newer version of this neat little game I used to play with my siblings. The game is essentially 2 - 4 multi-colored marios (or mario, luigi, wario and waluigi if you prefer) running around levels done up in classic mario style, trying to jump on each others heads.
But the developers have made it so much more since last I saw it. They've got a bunch of game modes, new maps, more options, items. It's brilliant, it's free, give it a try.
