Mario is the plumber from Brooklyn that eventually put a stop to King Kuppa's tyranny and everyone loves him because he is a sweet talking funny guy. Ask your parent about him and they would probably said that he is one of their favorite cartoon or video game character. They might even brag about how good they were while playing Super Mario during those days.
In this game, you will forget about him being the hero because you are King Kuppa and you know that Mario is bad for you. You need to bomb him till he falls off the road. There is a time limit in this game.
