    Man, I wish I had a fish to ride in the underwater Super Mario stages.

    Also, anyone else expected those hands at the end to combine and form Master Hand or a Floor/Wall Master?

  2. Shatman on August 17th, 2011 9:23 am

    Would anyone else play a game like this?

    When I first saw the title, I thought "Oh great, another submission that's only 'cool' because it has video games in it, with little thought put into continuity, direction, art style, etc."

    When I first saw the video, I thought:

  10. Rexxmech on August 17th, 2011 11:32 am

    Bubbleman? The final boss? Must be a dream…

  11. ChemicalKirby on August 17th, 2011 11:41 am

    If i had 3 powers per level i wouldn't get hit either.

  12. HughbertEsq on August 17th, 2011 1:14 pm

    Hold on a mo' Is that the theme from Haunted Hallways during the pac-man stage

  13. HughbertEsq on August 17th, 2011 1:31 pm

    Once again I become guilty that I was born in the wrong time period and missed the 8-bit era.
    Hell, I was born in 1995 and my taste of games up till 2005 were RTS games like Rome Total War, Mech Commander 2 and some other games that escape my memory.
    Most shamefully of all, I thought that Home Consoles were a gimmick and that the Gameboy Advance, Colour and SP were the Zenith of games.

    Little Nemo The Dream Master, Balloon Fight, AND Dig Dug reference?
    I have never cried this much before now…
    This was a pure nostalgic trip next to The Wii Didn't Start The Fire.

  15. Ice_Cold_Water on August 17th, 2011 2:14 pm

    I honestly have nothing for this…. uuh… That sort of reminded me of the Scott Pilgrim game… The Scott Pilgrim game was pretty good.

    I saw the title in my RSS feed and I though "Ooh, is there finally a sequel?" But no, it's just the same thing I saw on Newgrounds a year ago. That said, it's still awesome, and it looks like it might have gotten a new coat of polish since then. Going back and watching it again, I find I get just a few more of the references to actual games (though still not quite all of them.) It's still fun to watch again, and it does deserve a place on this site, so I'm happy to see it show up.

    I actually do dream with retro graphics on occasion, though typically from a later era than 8-bit. However, even then, I'm still not awesome enough to beat all those levels without taking a hit.

  17. ProfessorLuigi on August 17th, 2011 2:30 pm

    I'm lucky. My dreams are in 16bit-high polygon 3d.

  18. Roflcopter419 on August 17th, 2011 2:51 pm

    …this is probably the best submission we've had in a long time.

  19. Drjolt on August 17th, 2011 3:00 pm

    Is it me are is this the best fucking thing i have ever seen in my entire life

  20. CriticalQuit on August 17th, 2011 3:51 pm

    I remember seeing this on Newgrounds like a year ago.

  21. Peterdivine on August 17th, 2011 4:24 pm

    Moron chose the worst possible path and ending. If you go THROUGH the Pac-Man stage, rather than just beating it, you can get to Cinnabar Island and challenge Bowser to mortal combat. He drops the Bo Staff and that gives you the ability to impersonate Donatello and convince the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to fight Dedede. After that, the Warp Star takes you to the final stage at the Biologic Space Laboratories to fight Dracula as the final boss.

    Ending cutscene involves some sort of doctor/ninja person, makes no sense but is totally awesome. Also guarantees you the "STAGE N4" rating.

    Mind = Blown

    He has better dreams then I do.

    My dreams are filled with space cores, ponys,hats, and creepers.

    I really need to give this website a break.

  24. Loki_heart on August 18th, 2011 12:07 am

    That was beautiful <3<3<3

  25. Vabolo on August 18th, 2011 10:09 am

    When I have nightmares, I get a combination of Superman 64 and E.T for the Atari 2600.

    I…Don't want to talk about them.

  26. Link Lab on August 18th, 2011 11:53 am

    Anyone else notice that there's no castlevania or sonic tag on this? (uses the castlevania whip and axe, Sonic BGM is used in the water/fish riding section)
