Gamers typically want to get the high score, but YouTuber NotEntirelySure has uploaded a video of an impressive feat that requires exactly the opposite: getting the lowest possible score in Super Mario Bros. without using any continues. The final 500 points in this unique run come from touching 5 of the game’s flagpoles at the very bottom precisely when the clock hits 000. Mario loses just one life in the entire run after a first attempt at the tricky wall jump maneuver in level 8-1 fails. Don’t ask me how a wall jump like that works in Super Mario Bros., because I have no idea.
