Video: New Super Mario Bros. 3?

Still don't see why people with such talent don't just create their own games and not "enhance" or extend games that already exist. BUT, this is a pretty impressive feat for one person. And it is still Super Mario Bros. 3. So Super Mario Bros. 3 with New Super Mario Bros. graphics and gameplay elements? Yes, please!

HIGH The hidden warp zone nods to past eras of gaming.

LOW The incredibly stiff difficulty will put off some players.

Super Meat Boy

Game Description: Super Meat Boy is a tough-as-nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus wearing a tux who lives in a jar. Leap from walls, jump over seas of buzz saws, and run through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Super Meat Boy relives the old school difficulty of classic retro platformers and streamlines it down to the essentials, no BS, just straight-forward twitch reflex platforming, and all while sacrificing his own well-being to save his damsel in distress.
