I beat Super Mario Bros... with a dance pad

Posted by Nario (92 posts) -

Hi, Nick Hagman here again, the guy who beat Castlevania with a dance pad. I'm back, and wanted to announce that I've finally beaten Super Mario Bros. with a dance pad as well!
 
 

  
It took me a week and a half to do this, and got about 14 Game Overs.

Please vote on which game I should play next: DuckTales 1 (NES) or Mega Man 2 (NES)!
 

Also, before I started to record my runs, I made a Training Montage for Super Mario Bros.! In it, I prepare to play the game with epic music playing in the background!

Haha, damn, man. Just watched this after reading Jeff's tweet. Thoroughly impressive, no doubt. Gratz.

I think you should do Ducktales next.

Excellent work my friend. For your next project, how about Final Fantasy VII with a GCon?

Great form, sir! I remember having trouble with some of these levels on a regular controller- and I´m a horrible (virtual) dancer, so you just totally blew my mind!

DuckTales 1 - 38
Mega Man 2 - 108

Mega Man 2 is the winner! See you all again on Monday when I fight Air Man... WITH A DANCE PAD.
