Classic gaming breathes new life into classic gaming: the music of Mario Paint


11:23 PM on 07.03.2007



Remember all that nonsense I spouted about the anthem of my bloody coup being played on tesla coils? No longer. My limited attention span coupled with my fascination with novel uses of old technology have led me to replace Nikola Tesla's hammer of the Gods with Mario Paint as the supreme instrument. Tipmonster TehUberOne (hereby promoted to Lieutenant Tipmonster) sent us a link to some music from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! rendered in Mario Paint's music engine, and being the curious little bastard that I am, I dug further and found much, much more -- most of which is composed by just one dude, a bloke by the name of TomBobBlender.

Lots of this stuff was uploaded to YouTube months ago, but hey, maybe it's new to some of you. Intrigued? Hit the jump for several more. 

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest -- Bloody Tears

Mega Man 2

Chrono Trigger -- Robo's Theme

Tetris Attack

Super Mario RPG

Final Fantasy II
