''7 Grand Dad'' changes part of the title screen, namely the logo and adding a giant Mario sprite. During gameplay, Fred Flintstone's head was replaced with Mario's, but Fred's name on the HUD remains the same. Some of the graphics were taken from ''[[Dian Shi Ma Li]]'' and [[Mario#Super Mario Bros. 3|''Super Mario Bros. 3'']]. The game is started on the map screen, which allows the player to select between the first 3 levels. All of the end credits were changed to XXXXXXX.

The credits have been all edited out, replacing the names with just X's.

There are two cheats hacked into the game that's mentioned on the cart (although the translation is notably poor). On the title screen, pressing select lets you increment the first level although you can only go up to the dungeon level. While in the level, you can press Up + Start to refill your life meter by three hearts.

*The Mario sprite on the title screen was from ''[[Dian Shi Ma Li]]''. They also changed the "F" to "王". (Which translates to "King")
*Even though it is unknown the origin behind this game, it's possibly that the same creator is also behind ''Mario Fighter 3'' (a hack of [[Hummer Team]]'s version of ''Street Fighter II'') and ''[[Mario IV]]'' (a hack of ''Armadillo'') because these 3 games have many things in common, like the Fortran in the title screen with the "王" in the hat, the ''Super Mario Bros. 3''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s Mario sprite and the XXXXXXX in the credits.

Overview

7 Grand Dad changes part of the title screen, namely the logo and adding a giant Mario sprite. During gameplay, Fred Flintstone's head was replaced with Mario's, but Fred is left unedited in the cutscenes and the basketball game. The name on the HUD also still mentions Fred. The credits have been all edited out, replacing the names with just X's.

There are two cheats hacked into the game that's mentioned on the cart (although the translation is notably poor).

    • It was at least published by J.Y. Company. One of the PROMs on its PCB says "JY215". [1]
    • The original cart's label is almost the same as Mario IV's, the only difference being the title and the cheat description being different (but in the same font). It's unknown however if J.Y. Company was originally responsible for publishing Mario IV.
