Let your kid create their own level in Mario Bros

Filed under: That's Entertainment

Remember the old Super Mario Bros game? You know, on Super Nintendo -- before anyone had ever heard of Wiis, XBoxes, Segas, and all the systems in between?

That was actually my first video game, and I remember everyone in my house (including my parents), thought it was a kind of home entertainment revolution. Gaming has come a long way since I was a child, and stuff kids are playing these days is incredibly more complex.

But, for those kids who seem more interested in how their games look than how it's played (or for all you parents out there looking to re-live your gaming glory days), this old school Super Mario Bros "Scene Editor" might be a fun diversion. The website lets you construct your own level with the original graphics (some of them are even animated), so you can create a Mario scene that looks like the game set to pause.

The only downside is that you can't actually play the level once you've created it. Bummer.
