Super Mario Land, the iconic Mario game for the original Game Boy, is not the typical target for player-crafted redesigns, but here we are. Arne Niklas Jansson has taken a a 24-year-old classic portable game and made it look like an indie PC game released last week.

Jansson explains the entire process of tweaking a relatively beloved classic into something more to his liking on his site.

    Man, good memories. I played Super Mario Land so much back then, it was and still is the only Mario that I've finished (not much of a Nintendo person). So many times I got to the flight stage and ran out of batteries...

      One of my earliest memories of proper gaming. Great fun...

      However, you should really go back and finish Mario 64!!

    He used the term 'clocked' in his write up. I haven't heard or used that term in years. Love it!
