Tuper Tario Tros: A Mario/Tetris Mash-up

Posted by Luke Westaway

Warning: this Flash game is highly addictive

Newgrounds user and all-round genius SwingSwing has created a fantastic Mario/Tetris mash-up named Tuper Tario Tros. Blending the platformer and puzzle genres, the game involves traversing the usual Mario landscape with your usual repertoire of jumping and, err... more jumping. When Mario encounters an obstacle he's unable to jump across, players hit the spacebar to switch the game into Tetris mode. You must then rely on your mad-stacking-skillz to create platforms and ledges for our Italian friend. Hit the spacebar again to switch back to Mario, and you're off again!

It's a brilliant homage to both games, and more importantly, it's creative, innovative and highly addictive. Nintendo Life advises against playing this game at work, at school or whilst operating heavy machinery.

Hey Stuffgamer 1 to play the game you'll have to have a usb keyboard & stick it in the usb port on your PS3.Now you can play any flash game I tried this on my Wii console & it worked.

@Nintendokid: It doesn't work right on the PS3, though. I can use my keyboard for the arrow keys and letters if need be, but spacebar doesn't work right. It always winds up tabbing down on the web page instead. Stupid design flaw of the browser, I guess.
