Super Mario Bros. game in email

Earlier this year Kristian Robinson (Email Developer/Designer) created a ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ game in email.

Game uses a basic two scenario journey.

Game plays till game over — unless action button is pressed.

So I’ve based the Super Mario Bros. game around that structure.

See the email here.

Like the Sonic sample, I’ve used a slide runner. Background Image moves left to right, Mario is moving on a sprite.

Framework is also based from carousel.

Controls are based by using a carousel.

What about the fallback..?

As a fallback, a ‘start game’ image is served instead linking to the web version of the email that will start the game.
