Somari Review by: mohammedroxx3 - 5/10

Please, just please.... No
So, I kind of noticed that a few users seem to like it when I make pirated game reviews and homebrews reviews and various Sonic hack reviews for the sega genesis too. So, I thought, why not make both reviews everyday? So, I'm basically gonna (try to) keep doing this everyday until the end of this month, then, if/when I get the staff role, I'll start on non-sonic reviews. Anyways, let's dive in to this pirated review! 

Intro: *tries not to throw up* *fails*

Well, so, there was once some random and unofficial pirated games being made. Some Sonic games for nintendo systems and even mario games for sega genesis system. And thus later on... Comes Somari. A Sonic game with Mario as the main hero for an nintendo NES system. This was really known to be a very dreadful game. And, as most of us probably (or possibly) already know, Sega =/= Nintendo and vice versa. Well, I'm assuming this pirated game attempted to prove that statement wrong. But..... They somewhat kind of failed at it. I'm gonna try not to rant too much in this review. Anyways, let's find out more about the pirated game!

Gameplay: 5 Ahh... the conTROLLS & physics

Here is the real significant part about Sonic games. Sadly, they pretty much messed it up. Firstly, what messed up the gameplay was the horrible physics. When you try to run and jump, you some times barely move, some times move at a decent speed, or some times just move uncontrollably fast. Mario himself is hard to control. The game seems to think that Mario is moving fast when he is barely even moving. Some times even the opposite. Sometimes, when Mario jumps, he jumps up fast then falls down slow, some times he jumps up slow but falls down fast. It's randomly insane and unpredictable. Though, Mario can actually do the spin dash, but some times, he barely even moves fast with the spin dash and sometimes just blasts off like a rocket and you can't even control him for a few seconds. And by the time you regain control of him, he probably bumps into a badnik. In this game, you conTROLL Mario. (lol, get it?) Yea, to sum it up, the physics (which is a very significant thing in Sonic games) is messed up. 

Graphics: 5

Ok. Now, I'll be a bit more lenient here. I must remember not to compare it to a Sega genesis since this is an NES after all. So, I'll say that it is bad.... but.... Not 100% bad. Like, in the title screen, for example, Mario does look like himself, but the way he is smiling and putting his fingers out like that without even looking at the right area (which is looking towards you) makes him look like some type of idiot. Mario, is of course not an idiot. Mario is awesome and adventurous, but in this game, he doesn't look so... great. Now, as for the quality, it is not that horrible. I mean it has some colors and looks minimal just to be considered a picture... But regardless, the color is poor and not very... accurate... You know what I mean? Like, the colors are too bright and somewhat color-less and off. Also, the animation somewhat flickers a bit and it's not really something you would want to see. But ehh... ok. Thats about it for the graphics.

Sound: 4

Now, the sound is even worse. Firstly, lets talk about the background music. The background music is barely enough to be considered a background music. It just has it's minimal beeps and boops to play some type of background music. More of a bad remix of the original background music for a sega genesis. Now, as for the sound effects.... they are pretty high pitched and not something that really motivates you to listen to it. You just don't want to hear a bunch of high pitched sounds. Thats about it for the sound. Not much else to talk about. 

Addictiveness: 3

Ehh... Would you rather play a good sonic hack or this pirated game again? Would you rather play this again or try something else? Of course, I'd go with playing something else. Due to the low quality of this game, it doesn't really have any type of source of addiction for a gamer. No special or unique thing, no special features or challenges, just.... Cons.... really. I really hate to rant about this game. But. I can't lie in my review about the quality of this game though. The insane physics basically tells you to leave this game and the horrible sounds try to hurt your ears as if it is yelling, "Just don't play it again, please.". Yea, thats basically it. Sorry for the ranting, but I can't lie in my review. 

Story: 6

Same old story like all other Sonic games. You need to simply defeat Dr. Eggman and foil his evil plans, except, Mario is the one to do that kind of job this time instead of Sonic. Barely makes any sense but thats the original story. Somewhat interesting though to see Mario do that kind of job, but there is no twists or anything in the story that can take advantage of this. But, the story is usually an insignificant thing about sonic games anyways. That is about it for the story. To sum it up, simple, boring, overused, but yet enough to be considered a story. 

Depth: 6

Ok. I'll give this game some credit here. If you want me to explain it, it simply offers the same as Sonic 1 for the sega genesis, which is the zones and the game itself, but in lower quality and you play as Mario instead of Sonic. There is no other special options but simply playing the game in the zones. You got the badniks, bosses, zones, Mario, spin dash... Well... yes. That is basically it. Nothing else to say. 

Difficulty: 9

Yea, As you can guess, very hard. Why? There are badniks typically everywhere that violently shoot projectiles very quickly once you arrive to them and some areas barely have any rings. Not only that, there is the horrible physics so avoiding the projectiles with the conTROLLS will be one heck of a challenge. And recovering your lost rings is also difficult too. That is basically the one and only reason this game is hard. and it is not hard in a good way. Thats about it for the difficulty.


Well, thats about it. A somewhat interesting but horrible pirated game. Thanks for reading! Have a nice vizzed day! :)

 ehhh I would give this game a 6.8/10. It's not that bad, though.
MarioMasta 01-17-15 - 10:39 AM
 does anyone know where i can suggest games (such as bootleg games i want to see on the site) for them to try to find? I wanna see this site have Donkey Kong 2-in-1(?) also known as Donkey Kong 4, a bootleg game on the nes made by Hummer Team who made this.

 xD This game is actually funny. And, it's easy to play because it's crappy.
8bitNESPlayer 06-30-13 - 01:24 PM
 I think "Marionic" could be better than "Somari".
sonicfan&mariof.. 05-16-13 - 07:49 PM
 Wow. As a Mario and Sonic fan, honestly, I think this is what they do when they mix both of them, and some bath salts. Same with Sonic 3D Blast 5.
