Super Mario Bros. 35 is stressful, strategic, and quite a bit of fun, but its repetitive nature makes it feel a little less super after a while.

Super Mario Bros. doesn't suit the battle royale formula as well as Tetris, but this is still a fun novelty that neatly demonstrates the ageless virtues of the original game.

Super Mario Bros. 35 cleverly remixes the Italian plumber's 2D platforming formula, even though some late-game moments drag on.

There's plenty to criticize, but Super Mario Bros. 35 is a free download, so give it a shot. I've played many rounds already and will jump into plenty more until that fated March 2021 eShop removal death date. Hopefully Nintendo has a change of heart like it did with Jump Rope Challenge and updates the game to address some of its shortcomings: because it has even more potential than a temporary flight of fancy.

Lifting the Tetris 99 template wholesale, Super Mario Bros. 35 is a fun and accessible spin on the battle royale, but it's one that's hampered by a lack of clarity over its multiplayer mechanics. Its fresh new player base also leads to endless trips through 1-1 and gruelling marathons instead of tense battles to be the last Mario standing.

Just make sure to get your battle royale on while you can, because in six months, your Mario battle royale game will be in another castle.

A nice way to celebrate an all-time classic, Super Mario Bros. 35 succesfully implements some kind of battle royale using a very familiar gameplay.

Super Mario Bros. 35 is a flawed game in some ways while offering something new and unique and a whole lot of fun in others.

Combining battle royale with classic Mario gameplay, Super Mario Bros. 35 is an interesting and fresh idea that could use some more depth.

No one suspected they needed Tetris 99, yet we all know how it turned out. Just as no one probably felt the need for a competitive Super Mario Bros. for thirty-five users; but now it's on the eShop, free for all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and it's going to be really hard to do without it.
