Super Mario Bros 3 Run

April 3, 2013

tags: video-games

Across two sessions on March 5 and March 9, Nick and I ran through Super Mario Bros 3. What was done differently this time is we wanted to rate the difficulty of each stage (1 easiest -> 10 hardest).

Overall the average diffulty on the 90 levels was 3.6 / 10. (I hope there are 90 levels total, i didn’t count).

Here are the summaries:

+---------------------------+------+------+
|                           | Nick | Tom  |
+---------------------------+------+------+
| avg diff w/ zeroes        | 2.37 | 1.23 |
| total diff points beaten  | 213  | 111  |
| levels beaten             | 54   | 36   |
| avg diff per level beaten | 3.94 | 3.08 |
+---------------------------+------+------+

Here are the full level logs:
