"Mario Maniaq": have you ever heard of this game?
« on: March 05, 2021, 11:26:40 pm »
Hello everyone,

While looking through my attic, I stumbled upon a curious game called "Mario Maniaq" edited by Cybergold (for Windows 95-98 and Pentium 75) (I can show you a picture, but I don't know how to attach it to this text).  I remember I tried playing it but never managed to run it on my computer.
Looks very intriguing, it seems like it has Mario-style gameplay despite the front cover depicting an adventurer wielding a lit torch (which is all the more interesting).

Have you ever seen or heard of this game?

Thanks a lot.

It's not common, just like a lot of old PC games, it's no surprise you can't  get it to work on a modern machine. Most 1990's simply don't work without a 3rd party program to run on a modern machine. I cannot find much or anything about this game. called Mario Mania. only found a book with that title.


 is this called "Super Mario Mania"? or just Mario Mania? the letter q kind of throws me off.

unfortunately I don't know if you will find someone who would buy that, since a lot of PC games to my knowledge are vary hard to get up and running on a new PC. Did you try playing this on an old PC with Windows 98/95 or ME?

There are plenty of image hosting websites that are free, some of which you don't even need an account to use, like imgur, for example.

It is a videogame database, so you can add it here on vgc, and put the link in your post.
