Myfanwy Ashmore : 'Mario Trilogy'

mario battle no. 1
I removed all of the enemies, performance enhancing drugs, money, and architecture from the game so all that you can do is jump, walk, run around and dance in the landscape with the bushes and the grass and the moutains. eventually you run out of time and die.

mario doing time
I removed all of the enemies, performance enhancing drugs, and money, raised the dungeon wall to become an unpenetrable barrier so all that you can do is jump, walk, run around up and down, never quite getting high enough to scale the wall, inside the confinement of the altered game. eventually your time is up and then you die.

mario is drowning
I removed all of the enemies, performance enhancing drugs, money,and architecture so the water becomes a lake again, and so all that you can do is jump, walk, run around up and down and swim never quite getting a breath, finding anywhere to hold on, to rest, inside the confinement of the altered game. eventually you run out of “air” and then you die.
