Crucial Brothers


Coded by John Knox and with graphics by Paul ‘Dokk’ Docherty, ‘Crucial Brothers’ was an unashamed ‘clone’ of Nintendo’s Mario Brothers, but for the Commodore 64.

Nobody can recall whether it was officially cancelled, but there is some history with Firebird trying to negotiate with Nintendo for an official Super Mario Brothers conversion the year before which makes it all the more surprisingly that it was tried again via the unofficial ‘clone’ route.
