Giant Super Mario Bros. (ROM hack)

What a funny idea! Someone created a double height sized giant Mario in the game. Giant Super Mario Bros. it is.

Levels are almost the same. But author said he had to tweak some places to make them possible to walk through.

I am checking the game in the video below. I am sorry for terrible play đŸ™‚ I am not a Mario player. I played it a long long ago and not much. The only Mario game I did beat was Super Mario Bros. 2

Mario illusion

There is that animated illusion circulating on twitter and blowing minds. Even Elon Musk and Steven Pinker made retweets.

But what’s cool is that there is another one related to old 8-bit games. By the same author. Mario illusion. It looks like Mario rides the elevator then jumps and hits the box. Getting the mushroom. Grows in size. Then going down, walks on spikes and shrinks. And so on. To see the illusion it is necessary to know the Super Mario Bros game(NES, Famicom). Also I heard that not everybody sees optical illusions. So if you don’t see it – sorry. But I do see it and it’s pretty nice.

Original tweet is here. Thanks @jagarikin for creating this interesting illusions!
