YouTube Spotlight: Super Mario Bros. beat with lowest possible score, no continues

Infendo

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.

Watch the video above to see the one-of-a-kind SMB run for yourself. Also, if you would like to keep track of all of Infendo’s YouTube Spotlight videos, click here for the complete playlist on my channel.

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Kirby...you name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth

  1. I like this. It reminds me of when I was in college and we only had a limited number of games for our NES, and we’d just play them repeatedly. Of course one was Tecmo Bowl which you could play forever, but boy did we master those games. My roommate could complete Mega Man 2 without taking any damage, which is pretty impressive.
