The Captain Crosses Over Into Super Geek Land

So today I’m all excited for the release of Red Dead Redemption for the PS3.  Grand Theft Auto in the Wild West sounds like the perfect game for me.

And yet, to my surprise, I managed to find another video game today that is light-years cooler.  Behold:  Super Mario Brothers Crossover!

Crossover is the exact set-up of the original Super Mario Brothers game for the 8-bit Nintendo, with a so-simple-it’s-brilliant twist.  You can play every level as a character from other classic 8-bit Nintendo games.

It’s Mega Man in Mario’s world!  Amazing!!!  There are actually five other playable characters for every level.

Including, Mega Man, Link from Legend of Zelda, Bill from Contra, Simon from Castlevania, and Samus from Metroid.  All of my favorites!

While the game play is pretty basic, there are lots of fun little twists.  Mushroom and flower power-ups provide different bonuses depending on the character.  For example, a mushroom gives Bill a machine gun that’s perfect for mowing down koopas.

This looks to be the best time waster I’ve seen in ages.  And the best part is that the game if FREE!!!  Follow this link to the webpage and get started!  You can thank me later.

Ciao,

The Captain
