(This was a joint release between us and our good friends at Gaming Alexandria!)
The Super Mario Collection Screensaver CD-ROM was released by Digitainment and Yutaka in 1997. As well as installing the screen savers, it also consits of three applications, those being a wallpaper selector, a calculator, and a desktop clock. The user is able to select between two themes for each program through the dropdown menu.
In total, the disc contains six different screensavers. Screensavers “Allcast”, “MandL”, and “Kuppa” all mainly contain the same idea but with slight differences (various different characters running across the screen). Second is “Sea”, which features Mario, Cheep Cheeps, and Bloopers swimming. The next screensaver is titled “Coin” which features a prerendered 3D Mario coin spinning. Lastly is my personal favorite, “Hanabi”. It’s the nicest one by far, with Peach, Mario, Toad, and Bowser standing by the stage flagpole in the night sky.
When loading the installer, you will be prompted to enter the serial number that is found on the serial number sheet. (DGW-20245-03947)
