Mode 7 is a legendary graphics mode that was present in a certain number of Super Nintendo Video Games during the 1990's.
It made everyone's jaw drop with its 3D looking effects that were unheard of in the console world at the time.
I was a sucker for these games and I'm going to revisit some of my favourite Mode 7 Moments with you all now.
Watch Out Because Mode 7 Is ABOUT!!
"Street Racer was my go to video game once I'd played the life out of Super Mario Kart. While it didn't quite match the gameplay of Super Mario Kart, in my opinion, it built on the visuals of Mario Kart and in a lot of ways exceeded them!"
"F-Zero was the game I played constantly in Boots The Chemist in the early 90's. Yes Boots were the mecca of free to play SNES's back then as they had a 2 SNES set up in their Enfield Branch. One had Super Mario World and the other machine had F-Zero with it's insane pace and awesome Mode 7 visuals."
"Another racer with Mode 7 put to great use. A game that to this day makes me smile and has the purest pickup and play game play of any of the Mario Kart franchise. Greatest game of all time? Well, it's up there!"
"Pilotwings felt like part game, part technical demonstration. This video game marvel from the 20th century oozes Mode 7 and is actually lots of fun to play!"
"Super Mario World is my favourite Platform game of all time and it's not the Mode 7 effects you remember, it's the near perfect controls and pinpoint platforming that really get ya. Now, though, looking back on this behemoth 25 years later you can really appreciate the visuals nd effects that were put to awesome use in Nintendo's finest hour!"
These are the 5 Mode 7 Marvels that spring to mind for me.....
