Super Mario & The Elemental Orbs
9/10. 'Tis a breath of minty fresh air in the world of Mario platforming while staying true to the franchise's roots.

Super Mario & The Elemental Orbs is a team fangame project developed by WreckingGoomba, LSF Games,
Pyro, FreeHeros and MarioMan564, with several tracks composed by Smithuser/Benjamin.
The game has been in development for three years, and with 5 out of 7 worlds completed,
it's finally getting near completion.
This game is a Mario platformer from beginning to end: you stomp on Goombas and other minions,
defeat powerful bosses and obtain several power-ups on your journey.
Aside from that, this game has an online multiplayer mode, a custom music feature,
and much more to make the game unique in its own way.
The online multiplayer mode lets you play through all levels with people all around
the world. No port-forwarding is required, simply log in and you're ready to go!
With a built-in chat feature, playing online is as easy, comfortable and fun as it gets.
For more information on SMEO's online mode, read the ReadMe file.
The custom music feature allows you to play any music file from your computer in any stage.
Simply select the Custom Music option on the mapscreen,
select your music and the game will play it in the level you selected it for.
This feature is perfect if you don't like a certain track in the game,
as you can simply change it to whatever you want.
All default music in this game uses the Ogg Vorbis format.
That's right, MIDIs have been completely abandoned!
Special thanks to the FMOD Sound System for making this possible.
Besides these features, the game has a shop, star coins and more.
Just play the game to find out about it all, I don't think anyone
wants all content of this game to be spoiled!
So what are you waiting for? If this sounds
interesting to you, give this game a shot! With all unique features this game has,
along with classic Mario gameplay, you won't regret it.
