Mario Dash - One Button Contest Entry

Version 1.4 released

Version 1.3 released

Version 1.2 released

Version 1.1 released

Mario Dash is a reworking of the original NES SMB gameplay.
It basically places you on rails and moves you through the
level. Its your job to time jumps and dodge enemies with the
use of your mighty spacebar.

Controls: Press Space to Jump, Hold Space to run

Mario Dash also includes a level editor, its what I used to
make the games existing 4 worlds. I encourage you to try it
out, it only takes minutes to make a good sized map. Once
you finish you can select a background color and a music
file to attach to your map.

If you do make a map, please take a second to upload it from
the editor's Online menu. The Level Database webpage is ready,
I just need some maps to add to my list. Please send in your
maps so we can extend the fun!

- Editor to create your own maps
- Huge max map size of 5000 tiles wide
- Save layers, background color, and music with your map
- Drop enemies into your map
- Upload your map to the Mario Dash Level database
with the click of a button
- Bustable bricks, question boxes, and coin pickups
- Goomba, Spiney, Koopa, and Beatle enemies.
- Uploadable High Score support soon
- Includes 4 worlds that take you through remakes of the old
NES levels. You win the game after clearing bowser's castle.
- Fullscreen and Stretchable Window Modes
- Dockable Tile window in Editor
