A couple of years ago we saw a map of New York City done in the style of Super Mario World. Here’s a great complement to that map, a chart of the Big Apple’s subway depicted in the same style by Robert Bacon.
Retro game art specialist James Bit made this set of canvas prints that will be familiar to anyone who’s played Super Mario Bros. 3. It’s the spade panel minigame! These prints won’t net you extra lives if you match them accordingly, but at least they’ll take you to a more youthful state of mind.
