First of all, I might be making myself look stupid with that title. I know Mario is a Nintendo-exclusive franchise, but I'm searching for a game my older siblings used to play when I was a child; it was on MS-DOS and either had Mario as the main character or someone extremely similar-looking to him.
Two things I remember clearly about this game was that unlike other Mario games, there weren't tiles and pipes and that sort of stuff, and second, Mario could 'scare' his enemies by pulling a face at them, much like Simba could do in The Lion King for the Sega Genesis.
I'm sorry if I'm being annoying and making myself look stupid with this question, but was there ever such a Mario game on DOS? It could have been an official game or a fan-made one, I don't know. If someone does know of this game though, it'd be great if they could tell.
