Today I ran into a video showing off the Thriller tune in Mario Paint Composer. I was amazed. Here’s the video â€¦
I’d never heard of Mario Paint Composer, but it’s been around since 1999 on Nintendo game systems. According to Wikipedia, Mario Paint was rated the 162nd best game made on a Nintendo System in Nintendo Power‘s Top 200 Games list.
The design team at unFun Games has a version you can run in Windows and Mac. Anyone, even someone as musically stupid as me, can create their own tunes in it. Here’s what the authors of the game say about it.
Mario Paint Composer is a remake of the music system from the original Mario Paint for the Super NES. It is made by unFun Games. The game is, of course, completely free, but we ask that you check out our website if you like it. You’ll find other fun online games to play there for PC and Mac!
Mario Paint Composer is 100% virus/spyware free. It will not harm your computer in any way.
I downloaded and unzipped it to my computer and within only a few minutes, I’d figured out how it works. You can load tunes, save tunes and even download tunes that others have created.
Techie Buzz Verdict:
Mario Paint Composer is fun for all ages. It’s easy to create and share music with others and the software is easy to use. It’s portable freeware and you can run it from a Flash card or USB stick if you need to. This one gets a big thumbs up from me.
