I think the only source I have is one I disassembled myself with the "Wosfilm
Disassembler".  I should have it on my harddisk but all my stuff is packed at
the moment (I just returned from ATARIADA in Czech Republik).  Will look it up
if I reinstalled everything again  (remind me in case I forget it)

There's an excellent version on "Golden Oldies" made by Software Country
(Now Mindscape) in 1985.

"Golden Oldies" sounds familiar, that's probably the one I was thinking of.
Thanks.

The XE mario bros was excellent.  Unfortunately there isn't any known copy
circurlating the internet.  Though, check out Jindroush's page for a title
screen shot.  I'd love to get my hands on the rom some day.  There is a good
XE crystal castles version too that plays much better than the 5200 version.
Well worth a play.

Hello,

I have Mario Brothers for the Atari 8-bit. I have the raw file which I
converted to run with 800XLDJ. I found it on a Mega.ATR file.

Castle Schreckenstein was cool. If I am not confusing it with another game,
I had lots of fun with this.
