Super Mario Bros. DDX is a highly regarded Mario fangame made by Guinea. Using an updated version of the All-Mario Engine it attempts to mimic the gameplay from Super Mario Bros. on the NES, but with added new features and updated graphics. During the development stages Guinea held a contest for MFGGers to design their own levels, many of which got into the final product.

From the description on the main site:

"The title of this game basically tells you what it is:

Good old Super Mario Bros. side scrolling action, plus a lot of new features and new graphics.

Super Mario Bros. DDX features an excellent engine teamed up with colorful graphics, all based on the classic game.

Just to name some of the new features of this game:

  • Giant Mario
  • Play with either Mario or Luigi, who have unique physics each
  • Get the retro feel with oldschool graphics, but recolored and reshaded

This is fangaming of the highest level!

This Game features 6 Worlds with different amounts of levels plus 2 Bonus worlds with Retro levels and levels made by MFGGers."


Super Mario Bros. DDX currently averages a 9.2/10 on MFGG's main site, making it one of the most highly rated MFGG games to date. The game is notable for the insane difficulty on some levels, which causes serious injury or death, namely to Guinea if he's ever near somebody who played them recently. The game is at no point unfair (debatable) or unbeatable though. The story, which tries to stay in the background as much as possible, gives the player a motivation to sit through the adventure in order to experience what some fans call one of the most epic boss fights ever.


A sequel is currently in development, although it is not directly a sequel, but more like a spiritual successor. Then again it's not really a successor either, since it takes place at the same time as this game. It's gonna be complex, and you'll hear more about this during 2010. Those who have been able to complete the game will be less surprised than those who didn't.
