Special effect designers Blumasters recreated the first level of Super Mario Bros, putting the entire level in a three-dimensional perspective and adding a very literal interpretation of the game. When Mario jumps on a Goomba, it crumbles into pieces of bone and leaves a pool of blood. When he hits one with a fireball, it actually goes up in flames.

Instead of the game's iconic music, we footsteps and sound effects. As a commentary on the fundementally violent nature of video games, it seems a bit over the top: I doubt anyone saw Mario jumping on enemies and imagined them getting crushed to bloody bits. Then again, maybe that's the problem.

Either way, the effects are pretty amazing. Give it a look, and tell us what you think about it.
