Sure, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Meat Boy are both platformers, but could they possibly be more different? Where one is forgiving and kid-friendly, the other is challenging and cruel. One stars an iconic plumber and hero, the other a walking ball of bloody meat. See what we mean?

Yet indie developer Aubrey Hesselgren created the above game, Super Meat Boy Galaxy, and it seems like it might even be kind of fun. He reportedly created it as a birthday gift to Super Meat Boy creator Tommy Refenes, and unfortunately it seems he doesn't plan to release the game publicly or expand it any further.

What other games do you think deserve a mash-up?
