Remember Super Mario 64? You can now play an HD recreation in your browser

Remember Super Mario 64? Well you should – it’s arguably the greatest platformer since video games began letting you move through more than two dimensions.
We don’t all have a Nintendo 64 (or one of the several remakes) lying around though, so wouldn’t it be nice to be able to play it on your computer?
Developer Roystan Ross has gone and done just that, recreating the game’s first level, Bob-Omb Battlefield, with impressive accuracy and improved visuals to boot.

You can play the game in your Bowser browser using a Unity plug-in, and it runs fairly smoothly on my Surface Pro 3. The level layout and physics are virtually identical, and you can control Mario with either your keyboard or a gamepad.
There are a couple of things missing, like some of Mario’s attacks and the level’s Red Coins – and of course, it’s only one level – but it’s still worth checking out if you need something fun for the weekend.
If you’d rather to take the game around with you, you can also download it on Windows, Mac or Linux. Check it out, it’s impressive work.
