Now, here at FHM we're pretty big freakin' fans of video games, but to actually create one of our own? Eh, we'll leave that up to the professionals. Turns out, however, the "professionals" aren't always legitimate video game manufacturers, sometimes, they're just really crazed fans. Albeit, really intelligent crazed fans. According to Engadget there's now a fan-made successor to the 2006 Super Mario Bros. DS game and it looks F'in awesome.
In order to play, it requires ROM of the original DS game. If that's unavailable to you, you can use a compatible emulator (DeSmuME) to play the game for free. Truthfully, given the blatant copy right infringement, we're not sure how long this thing is going to last, but, for the time being, y'all should try and enjoy!
As you saw above, there's eight different world maps and whopping total of 80 levels. Man, these guys had a lot of time on their hands. We're not judging, by the way! Just thankful, is all. If you're wondering how they were able to create this masterpiece, check out the free Super Mario Bros. Editor. The technicality is a bit over our heads, but for those of you inclined, it could be a fun project!
These guys also created Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, which is available for download here. If you happen to be on the East Coast today, buried under a pile of "bomb cyclone" snow, this is the perfect way to spend the time at home. Should your girlfriend nag you about all the attention being paid to video games, just tell her they help you last longer in bed. That'll stop the complaining.
