Super Mario Land is one of the quirkier Mario titles, developed for Game Boy by a team led by Gunpei Yokoi. The Mario 'style' was still taking shape at that time and the first portable entry went its own way, even including some shoot 'em up-style levels for good measure. It would have two equally diverse sequels on the portable (including one in which Wario was the playable character) and is fondly remembered.

A rather neat video that popped up in our YouTube recommendations list is this one by KHAce; they spent a hefty amount of time in the Holidays attempting to recreate the Game Boy title in Super Mario Maker. Naturally a 1-for-1 recreation is impossible, but it's rather faithful and also clever in how it utilises supported items. Check it out below, though it's worth noting that the video's been edited to include music and sound effects from the original game.

A nice job, we think, and it prompted this writer to fire up his copy of the original on the 3DS Virtual Console, too. After all, it's a unique part of Super Mario history.
