Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy and Super Mario Bros. is the video game crossover you never wanted but are getting anyway. This strange blend of two very different games, appropriately titled Getting Over Goombas, comes from YouTuber and Reddit user Newbie Indie Game Dev. The game developer shared their abomination project on r/IndieDev yesterday, showing World 1-1 and more reimagined as a level from the world’s most frustrating video game. It looks like it works surprisingly well as Mario can be see using a pixelated mallet to swing himself to his inevitable death. Unlike the original Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy, this strange combination even has its own hazards – like turtle shells and Goombas – for Mario to avoid.
