Just a quick post tonight. I saw this video on YouTube today of a new version of the classic game, Super Mario Bros, in a racing/battle royale format. As far as I can tell, you’re competing in real time against 99 other opponents who are racing through a few levels of the original game. Players interact with the environment (e.g., if you grab a mushroom, I can’t grab it) but not with each other (I can’t jump on you).
It’s a short video, but I had a lot of fun watching it, and I think this would actually be a lot of play, especially as the levels progress and fewer players survive.
