A mash-up of Super Mario Bros. and Tetris should - or at least could - be the best video game of all time, given how strong each title is independently. But is that marriage of gameplay styles enjoyable in practice?
It certainly doesn't make for a good name, but Tuper Tario Tros. - seriously! - at least makes for an interesting concept. The Flash-based game recreates most of Super Mario Bros. World 1-1, letting the player fill in the blanks and reach new heights by dropping tetriminoes from a Lakitu to build new platforms and drop mushrooms.
Tuper Tario Tros. is a fun experiment, but after years of being conditioned to press the space bar to jump, it's not the easiest thing in the world to play. But play it anyway.
