I think Super Mario Bros. Special™ has defeated Jeff. God help us all.

Is it weird that I kind of dig the weird off pitch version of the underwater music?

Good god, Jeff. Why are you subjecting yourself to this game still?

This has become Jeff's Breaking Brad.

Love the random hit detection on the large spinning fire in 5-4.

Was Fatal Fury Special like this? I have good memories there but now I'm afraid to look.

My favorite part is that the slowed down music nearly has a cool jam feel, except that it's all monsterous.

I cannot help but burst out in laughter as soon as the first few notes of the Mario song start playing. In that first second, you just immediately know something is horribly wrong with this game.

Super Mario?
Evidently. Note the clumsy, awkward movement and slurred, sluggish music.

(Super is Swedish for drinking, as in alcohol, as in large volumes.)
(It's a funny joke.)

At the end Jeff jokes he had to play this. As the comments/forums demonstrate, in any large community there are always as many people who enjoy a thing as don't, so I just say this for me - I hope to not see this for a third time.

That weird tunnel in the pipe section of 3-3 was bugging me, so I looked into it. It seems that there is a 1-up in a hidden block that goes across the top of the screen and winds its way down to you eventually.

I was hoping it was a path to a better game :(

I'm pretty sure to glitch past a firebar, you have to be going fast enough in the opposite direction that the game never calculates you touching it.

@eccentrix: exactly this. it's just like the firebar hiding trick in SMB (standard edition), except way easier to accidentally pull off here because even the big firebar only has like....16 frames per revolution.

I love how the crew always passive-aggressively bash on Twitch streamers, which they now basically are. In another universe Jeff is one of the biggest names on Twitch.

Finally. An explanation for this.

Thank you to Jeff for enduring more suffering in this time of suffering. It'd be neat ("neat") to see someone go through the NES romhack adaptation (besides Run Button, of course).

I really enjoy watching Jeff suffer bad games, but I also think Jeff enjoys making us watch these horrible games.

Jeff Gerstmann is truly still a threat.

It's great to watch someone get genuinely angry at a game without hamming it up, I would be pretty much the same if I played this shit. +1 to going all the way with it.

I wonder if there’s a single person in the world who played this but never the NES SMB. What do they think of video games?
