TFG advertises sale using Mario-inspired game

The Foshini Group (TFG) is using a Mario Bros. inspired game to encourage users to shop on its platform, as part of its site-wide Shop Hop promotion.

The company earlier this week debuted Super Stan, a browser-playable game in which the titular¬†character hops over shopping trolleys and collects items from various stores. The title takes a few liberties with Super Mario Bros‘ first level, but remains pretty fun to play.

Super Stan, inspired by the Nintendo megahit Super Mario Bros, was created to educate customers around the breadth and depth of the TFG eMall, in the run up to its Shop Hop sale day,” the company explains in a press release.

Using Super Mario Bros. as a base, TFG’s little game is pretty entertaining

“The aim of the game is to navigate Stan on a mission to grab as much merchandise from as many stores as he can.”

The game itself plugs into the sale, by allowing users who complete it enter a draw to win a number of tech prizes.

According to the press release, the company now has 11 stores in its bouquet.
