Mecha Bowzilla

The toolset of Super Mario Maker allows for many unconventional levels that, while possible technically within a regular Mario game, Nintendo has never dared to create. After the company has taken some heat for releasing four New Super Mario Bros. games that are decent, though unsurprising, platformers, it's a refreshing breath of fresh air to see what direction some fans will take when designing stages within the same engine.

Nowhere is this more evident than a recent stage by a user named Kiavik. The stage is called "Super Mario Vs Mecha Bowzilla" and features a riveting battle between Mario and a giant contraption of death with Bowser Jr. at the top. It's stages like these that make Mario Maker worth the buy, check out a playthrough video below:

For those of you who would like to challenge Mecha Bowzilla yourselves, the code is C662-0000-023A-620F.
