A remake could be possible, but I think it would take a lot of work. Maybe a nice project for yourself to start (virtual boy) coding? It would definitly make a good change in the coding competition.
Me start coding? hahahaha im only 15, and i dont have any experience with programming,except once i did some action script for Flash, but it was a basic game of move the ball and press space to bounce it.
Everybody needs to start and 15 is an excellent age for it (the older you get, the harder it’ll be to learn new things). Just look up some coding tutorials (for c++ for example) and in weeks you could already begin a smb remake.
