After briefly studying iPhone game icons, I've come to the conclusion that all game icon designers do is put the main character in a yellow-framed square.
Thus, I've decided that if there were ever an app for Super Mario Bros 3, it would be impossible for it not to look like this. It seems yellow-framed squares are the key to success!

HOLY SHIT, IS MARIO ON IOS NOW?! :-o ARE YOU MAKING THE ICON FOR NINTENDO?
I WOULD PAY LIKE AT LEAST $1.99 FOR MARIO ON IOS!
Words cannot describe how much I would love to have this on my homescreen. Not sure why Nintendo doesn't embrace the iOS market but I can understand certain reasons why. Let's hope if they do your icon is the one they go with. :) Great job Louie!
i remember that mario only have 4 fingers of one hand, total is 8.
@Ray Mario definitely has all of his fingers. :P
it's okay,cuz mario have a girlfriend.
This is so good! Maybe that yellow framed square is actually a thing :)
SOMEONE SHOULD SHOW THIS TO NINTENDO! THEY SHOULD HIRE YOU!
Italians have blue eyes?
This is really great.
love reading in caps...
did you illustrate Mario?
Did you draw Mario or just put a pic of him in a yellow square?
Very good icon, also a nice blog post!
Love it! My favorite game ever! ;-)
Great article, I'll have to remember the yellow square on my next iOS game. ;)
It's a bummer that Mario will never be on non-Nintendo platforms.
@Andrew Hainen they made some Mario games for other platforms. http://www.mariowiki.com/File:MIM_Cover.jpg
I would pay 6.99 EASILLYYYY for this game
This looks fantastic, I'm guessing you hand painted Mario for this icon.
Love it, Louie.
Found image of Mario? Or did you illustrate?
@Aly Fayollat @Nigel Evans @Murat Mutlu @Pete White Oh my, this is just the same Mario image from the cover of SMB3, I didn't illustrate this. It was done before I was born.
Hey Louie, big fan.
