SuperTux Editor's Review'SuperTux' is a jump-n-run game that is a Super Mario imitation.
Yes, this game is a Super Mario imitation, but I must say that it's one of the best imitations I've seen. The current version evolved a lot, because it has an improved gameplay. This improved gameplay looks different from the original one.
As the name of the game suggests, the main character is Tux. If you don't know who or what Tux is, then I am telling you that Tux is Linux's logo. Tux, the penguin, replaces Mario in his adventures.
The link with the Linux world is not a mistake. In fact, SuperTux is an Open Source game. I used to play this under some Linux distributions. However, with this Mac version this game has known a real evolution. Besides its improved gameplay, it brings new levels. The game also supports extension packs that bring new levels to you.
Even though the keyboard commands can be customized, the controls can be a little difficult to use. Jump-n-run games can be best played by using a game pad, which improves the control a lot.
Pluses: It's a very good game that can get you addictive, if you like the classic jump-n-run style games.
Drawbacks / flaws: It uses a 4:3 screen resolutions that won't fit very well on your wide screen. If you have a wide screen, the program's resolution sometimes messes up the icon setup on your desktop.
In conclusion: If you like Super Mario, then I think the transition to this game won't be hard at all.
