First Super Mario Land level recreated pixel-by-pixel in Minecraft

A small group of Minecraft fans have spent seven hours a day across four weeks to recreate the first level of Super Mario Land within the game.

James Wright, Joe Ciappa and Tempusmori ran the “monochrome platformer within an emulator” before replicating it “pixel-for-wood-blox-pixel”, housed within a giant Game Boy and consisting in entirety of 18 million Minecraft blocks.

Impressive stuff indeed!

You can view two videos, of both the level and a ‘Making of’ feature, below:
