November 2, 2011 // 8:00 pm - Today PlayStation 3 developer lachrymose has released a Super Mario War v1.8 PS3 port for fans of the classic homebrew game, followed by revision R2 below which allows loading game data from USB and fixes a critical bug.

To quote: I've ported the classic homebrew game, "Super Mario War" to the PlayStation 3. It is created with SDL by these awesome fellows.

For those not familiar, it's a 2D action vs game with up to 4 players. You can even have bots with quite good AI! It's a really great game to be honest. I wouldn't have ported it if it wasn't in my interest.

Everything is working from what I can tell. I only have one controller so I can't test multi-player (can someone test this for me, please?) I believe it should work. Keyboards are also supported.

Controls:

  • X - jump
  • Square - sprint/powerup
  • Start - Pause
  • Select - Exit game prompt
  • Dpad - Movement / menu navigation

Installation Instructions:

  • Download the archive
  • Move the "smw" folder to the root of your ps3 hard drive with a file manager. If this is not done, the game will not run. ex: dev_hdd0:/smw/
  • Install the package file or run the self
  • Start the game and have fun. The music rules.

Changes in R2 Bug Fix: Bugs should be fixed for everyone, please delete the previous version. You can now install the smw to the root of a usb stick and the program will find it. HDD is still supported and recommended if your usb is not usb2.0. I tried a usb 1.1 stick and it lagged a little. People who upgrade need to re-install the smw folder, please. Sorry, but now it should work for everyone.

Yeah, homebrew, the more the better! Maybe in the future we can make games as good as $ony's!
