Not a pixel in sight

Some YouTube videos dedicated to Nintendo games and franchises cross the boundary from happy enthusiast's amateur efforts to downright impressive, professional-level work. This stop-motion Donkey Kong video certainly fits in the latter category, with a lot of skill and hours no doubt needed to put it all together.

We're not sure you'll ever see a better use of beads and, apparently, over 1500 photos, all to recreate the original arcade NES port of Donkey Kong in all of its glory. It's a masterpiece courtesy of the guizdp channel; it really is a treat.

So check it out below, and don't forget that Donkey Kong is available on the Wii U Virtual Console for $0.30 / €0.30 / £0.30 until 13th August.
