The game was made as part of the Mario franchise, but having the play be similar to other Square RPG’s such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy. The game received very well reviews from various sources including a 9.5 out of 10 rating from IGN.

Gameplay

One thing that made the game really popular was the addicting background music. One of the more well-known pieces of music is “Beware the Forest Mushrooms,” the theme of the Forest Maze level in the game.

Beware the Forest Mushrooms

In 2004, a man named Martin Hagwell was able to make his own song out of the music with his own lyircs to it.

Lyrics:
Super Mario-o R-P-G
It is the only one just for me
When I play the game I get lost in a phase
Then I find out I’m stuck in Geno’s maze
(Repeat)

Gimme Frog Coins!
Gimme Ice Bombs!
Gimme Frog Coins!
Gimme Mushrooms!

Gimme See Ya!
Gimme Star Rod!
Gimme Cookies!
Gimme Lamb’s Lure!

I want e-everything I need,
I must play this more and more,
I need to get those damn frog coins
To pay off all my credit cards!

There are many secrets in the game!
Many of which drive some peeps insane!
Why we try to cheat in a really good game?
Just sounds like crap and it makes you look lame!

Exiting the forest is super simple:
All you do is follow these path turns
For the rest of your gaming life…

Follow Geno’s route here…
Follow Geno’s route here…
Follow Geno’s route here…
I’m a gaming god!
