* PaletteSwap: Just to tell some characters apart. Player one is a man in red overalls and a blue shirt, much like Mario was at the time, albeit with a blue hat, player two swaps the blues and reds, coincidentally giving us a man who resembles Mario's modern look of blue overalls, red shirt and red hat.
