Retro mods week: Mario mod + Happy easter

#60 | Mon 09.04.2012 (19:26) | John Beak | Website, Download

mod_mario.jpgHappy easter everyone!

The promised surprise is here This week, we're going to release a series of mod ports. The old versions - most importantly Icy Tower 1.2 - were home of quite a number of fanmade mods. Many of them were forgotten when the new versions came. Welcome to the Retro mods week!

The first mod in the series is the first mod ever - the famous Mario mod, courtesy of eli_sherer who made it back in 2003. This mod has never been ported to version 1.3 or above, so it never was a part of the current version since September 2005. More than six years later, we've contacted eli and got a permission to port the mod. It's April 2012 and we present you the port for Icy Tower 1.5.

You can grab the Mario mod in the Mods section.

Have fun!

Updates regarding prizes:

  • Jacob chose Harold the Bagboy.
  • John Beak decided to give up on his prize! The reasons cited were conflict of interest and already owning both a Harold t-shirt and a Harold Cap.
  • Therefore, Craven would inherit John's t-shirt, but instead he chose the Harold Cap.
  • And maxxx is lucky and receives what would be Craven's Harold Cap.
