Thumb Callouses Are So Over: Super Mario Bros Controlled With Music

by Alisha K.

I love Mario, but even I have to admit that the old school games are, well, old. I’ve played ’em a million times, and even though Super Mario Bros is a classic, it’s always fun to spice it up a little. I just never thought I’d see a musically-driven Mario Bros.

Marc Sciglimpaglia and Phoenix Toews super mario bros hack music

You read that right–this Super Mario Bros shuns the traditional controller and instead relies on music (clapping, drumming, singing) to get to that other castle. Artists Marc Sciglimpaglia and Phoenix Toews, the minds behind this remix, used “nin.reflux” software to hack the ROM in order to produce the effect.

And lo! There is even a video. Super Mario Hero-Band? I’d try it.

    Pretty novel, I would play it just to say I did, but dont think that I could keep up for more than 20 min or so. All in all pretty neat feature. One of the best games ever made still gets rehashed every month.
