Watch a man beat Super Mario World blindfolded in 23 minutes

Wednesday June 24th, 2015

Those of you who spent hours and hours smashing blacks and traveling through dungeon's to beat the classic Super Nintendo game Super Mario World, prepare to be frustrated, as YouTube user PangaeaPanga recently beat the game in 23 minutes, while wearing a blindfold.

The user states he began practicing beating the game blindfolded on June 16 and by June 23 he had already published his 23:14 run through the Super Mario World.

PangaeaPanga does suffer a few deaths and gets lost briefly in the Starworld level, but he takes out all the bosses in the end and manages to save Princess Peach, relying entirely on sounds and memory.
