Super Mario Bros. Demo for MATLAB
Mingjing Zhang @ Simon Fraser University

What it is
This is a short demo of World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. The demo emulates the behaviour of the original NES version as precise as my time and energy allow.

There are no enemies/coins/power-ups. The bricks are not interactive.

The flagpole and castle at the end of the stage are missing. The demo terminates when Mario moves out of the stage on the right.

There is background music which can be turned on before the game starts.

*The image you see up there is an ACTUAL screenshot of this demo.

Regular Version:
Put stl_mario_main.m and two .mat files under the same folder.
Run stl_mario_main.m
App Version:
Just like any other MATLAB app

A/D - Left/Right
J - Sprint
K - Jump

How to Quit
1. Walk to the end of the stage, or;
2. Close the figure window
* WARNING: The window should shut down itself upon error. If it doesn't, please type 'delete(gcf)' in the command window to manually kill the figure window.
