Yes, it’s true, Mario Royale is a browser-based version of the original Super Mario Bros that lets 100 players race to the end of a stage. You can’t exactly fight players, but they can be damaged via Koopa shells or by simply breaking the block they’re standing on to send them into the abyss. Power-ups are shared, so only a single player can snag that mushroom when needed. The game randomly chooses world 1, 2, or 3 at the start of a round, and to win you’ll need to be one of the first three players to reach Bowser’s castle at the end of the world.

“As I write this, more than 400 players are online, and it took me all of 10 seconds to find a game. Each round is quick, and most people die within a minute, which makes it easy to jump into another round. You can control Mario with either your keyboard or a controller,” said PC Gamer.
