This would have taken a seriously long time to make! Sure it is a tool assisted play through but along with the maps, editing and actual play time this is an amazing effort! This video shows you an almost complete play through of Super Mario bros 3 on the NES! No warp pipes are used but the hammer does help skip a couple of levels.
