These are screencaps from the game Super Mario Crossover, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a Flash-based game that looks exactly like the old 8-bit “Super Mario Bros.” from Nintendo, but with one delicious exception: You can also play as one of the characters from a number of classic NES games.
Simon (Castlevania), Samus (Metroid), Mario, Link (The Legend Of Zelda), Mega Man, and Bill from Contra are all here, complete with their original powers from their respective games. When you grab mushrooms and flowers, their weapons upgrade accordingly. It’s quite awesome. Here’s the link, and I guess I’ll see you sometime next Monday, because I can’t imagine you doing anything else with your free time before the weekend. Hopefully that’s just hyperbole. –via Kotaku.
