The Deadly Mushroom of Doom in Japanese Mario 64 Challenge


A couple of Japanese fellows with far too much time on their hands invented this little game that is kind of hilarious. They’re playing Mario 64, and in the snow level (I forget its actual name, but the one where you race penguins), they set out to achieve a very unique, and very difficult goal.

They climb one of the trees which poops out a 1up mushroom. You know, the kind that are magnetically attracted to you? Well, the goal is to run away from that thing as fast you can, and attempt to collect all the red coins in the level without it catching you. At first it seems easy, as the mushroom is nowhere to be found, but when it does show, two feet away from your back, it’ll freak you out like Jason Voorhees just beat down your door.
