Super Mario Crossover is the 8-bit mashup of my dreams

Posted on

Mario

Warning: Super Mario Crossover is about to steal your whole day. [makes noise] If you’ve ever wanted to battle Bowser as Link instead of Mario,  now’s your chance: This brilliant mash-up game lets you play the classic Super Mario Bros as Mario (bo-ring), Link from Zelda, Samus from Metroid, Megaman, a dude from Contra, or Simon from Castlevania. Ho. Lee. Crap. Using their weapons/specialties — whips! bombs! — within the Mario universe is a mindfrak for the ages.

The keyboard controls leave a little something to be desired, but I’m still totally floored. Now on to earning that Boy Scout video games merit badge!

Which classic game character do you want to play as, PopWatchers? Which games would you mash up?
