Witness The Evolution Of Exploiting Infinite Lives Out Of Nearly Every Mario Game

YouTube channel Nintendo Unity recently put together a compilation of how the infinite lives exploit has changed over the years.

The video covers just about every Mario platformer game, revealing many exploits that I wasn't personally aware of. We've all got Mario's design mechanics on our minds with the release of Super Mario Maker, so this video might serve as a lesson of what not to include in your Mario levels – unless of course you want players to be able grab infinite lives from your level, which certainly isn't a bad thing.
