Many people have voiced their opinion about New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe being just too sodding easy for their tastes, and whilst we don't think the whole game is a cakewalk in the traditional sense, it isn't exactly the Dark Souls of platformers to use an overused and somewhat polygonal expression.

So to ramp up the difficulty a smidgen and a half we thought it would be a "good" idea to slap a makeshift blindfold over our peepers and try to hammer our way through just the first level that the game offers. So after literally several attempts to memorise the layout, we managed to procure enough footage to make the video above, so give it a watch.
