Super Knockoff Brothers

I'm a huge fan of very poorly made counterfeits, and the video here features something that would surely get my vote for Poorly Made Counterfeit of the Year - 2007. If you've spent any time playing Super Mario Brothers, you'll recognize most everything here, but something's... just not quite right. Actually, make that several somethings. In fact the sheer number of ways this thing goes wrong had me laughing out loud for minutes.



Originally spotted at nintendowiifanboy.com, where you can also see levels 2, 3, and 4.

This was great. It must be incredibly frustrating to play, since all the conditioning and automatic moves we have all learned become our enemy...

I should also mention that even after the first few minutes, I can't stop watching, though part of me says, "okay, we've seen enough".

If I were a young kid aspiring to be a game tester, that would have changed my mind. What a waste of time! Cruel and unusual.
