NovaLogic was an American video game developer founded in 1985 by John Garcia, best known for its range of modern military simulations such as the Delta Force and Commanche series. The company developed the canceled Philips CD-i game Super Mario's Wacky Worlds.


At the time, NovaLogic was hoping to receive work from Nintendo, and a sales executive suggested porting a popular SNES game onto the Philips CD-i. The company soon started to work on a sequel to Super Mario World called Super Mario's Wacky Worlds. The game was an attempt to essentially recreate Super Mario World for the Royal Philips Electronics console, but due to different software, several features could not be included in the game, such as large numbers of sprites and the Mode 7 graphics mode. With the failure of the previous Philips Super Mario game, Hotel Mario, and poor sales overall of the CD-i, it was ultimately canceled.

After 2009's Delta Force: Xtreme 2, NovaLogic ceased active game development but continued to sell its back-catalog on online digital storefronts and operate its online multiplayer portal. In October 2016, the company was liquitated and all of its assets acquired by THQ Nordic[1].
