Over the weekend, game developers Stab Yourself released Mari0, a FREE downloadable game that takes the original Super Mario Bros. and adds portals.
Check out the game trailer here below and if you’re anything like me — a Super Mario Bros. junkie — you too will hyperventilating. Seriously, I’m bugging out now. I didn’t even know Mari0 was in the works, but now that I’ve seen the gameplay, I have one thing to say: WANT!!!
Fatalities are a crucial part of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise; the graphic and gruesome death of an opponent by your own hands has been satisfying gamers for years and is still going strong today.
But have you ever wondered what the Fatality finishing move would be for other classic video game characters like Mario, Link, or Pacman? Well, my friends, that day has now come. A hilarious new video has been released showing off the lost “audition tapes” of many different classic game characters, who use familiar elements from their own games to brutally end the life of a Mortal Kombat opponent.
You can see the video right now by continuing on below.
YouTube user Eyspire put together a video, called Ultimate Retro Running Race, of several classic video game characters having a race.
Watch the video here below.
The video clocks in just under 2 minutes, and shows some of our favorite video game characters racing against each other within several gaming scenarios with different gaming landscapes, all set to classic video game music. You’ll recognize Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario, as well as characters from Disney animation and Back To The Future, and many more.
This fan-made video, which Eyspire animated frame by frame, is a segmented portion of a larger satire series he says he’s working on.
Can you pick out all the video game characters in this video?
We’ve all played Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System, correct? If you have not, you should — these video game thingies are going to be huge someday. Anyway, someone decided to take Mario and his world to a whole new level with this great new video.
The idea is simple: take Super Mario Bros. and project it on some concrete and along a street. Why not?! Not only that, but it starts at the very beginning of the game and hauls ass straight through to the end using all of the super-secret tricks and transporting tube portals you have at your disposal. As the game plays out, someone with a camera walks along with the game, capturing the 8-Bit phenomena as it unfolds. Obviously the game was actually thrown into the footage after the fact, but you get the idea. Play along, damnit!
Eat your favorite mushroom (no, not that one…children) or flower or immortality star and flicker-skip to the other side to watch the video!
