My Turn! My Turn!

Mayhem has set in at Truffle Towers this week as us shufflers scramble for our controllers for some seriously old school, retro, and awesomely classic games. Who cares about growing up?!

Brushing the cobwebs aside from our Nintendo NES, Atari, N 64, Sega Master System and the like, TruffleShuffle is reliving the good old days of our mis-spent childhoods with some finger numbing sessions on everyone’s favourite retro video games. Top of our list, of course, it’s the plucky little Italian we have all come to love, King of retro games….Mario! There is no better way to while away the hours than in the world of Mario and his brother Luigi, ducking and diving, level after level, in evermore risky situations. Mama Mia!!

For those who like us never made it to the end, this is how it should be done:

If you’re as mad on it as us, take a sneaky look into what we are all wearing and rocking to show our love for retro games here
The shufflers were subjected to a little poll and asked for their top 5 retro games. The votes are in, check them out below! Do you agree, have we missed anything? Let us know your comments!!!
1. Super Mario
2. Sonic
3. Paper Boy
4. Lemmings
5. Street Fighter
 

Of course, retro games wouldn’t be the same without their iconic ‘stick in your head’ soundtracks. We’ve been scouring the web to find other peoples takes on such classics, here’s one for you guys:
Also, a few interesting, but useless facts for today:
Mario was originally known as Jumpman. However, when Nintendo‘s US office were trying to think of a better name in time for the American release of the game, they were interrupted by their landlord Mario Segale, after whom they christened the character.
A Q Score survey in the early nineties revealed that Mario was more recognisable to American children than Mickey Mouse!

Have a great weekend!
