I don't have many details on this but here goes anyways. Decades ago my cousin had a platform game on his NES. You could select a level from 1-100, either the level style was based on a "tower" where you had to reach the top or bottom or the level selector was shaped like a pyramid (little abstract I know). I think Mario might have been in this. But after looking at all the Mario games online I can't see anything that fits the obscure description. The game was a puzzler. I think. You had to clear the screen. think a hammer was involved somewhere. thats it! all I can remember in an abstract package of text.
