Tuper Tario Tros. is one part Mario, one part Tetris

Tuper Tario Tros. is a Newgrounds Flash game that takes the Super Mario Bros. formula and gives it a Tetris twist. The level you’re playing on starts off as world 1-1 typical does, but you quickly find out that there are large empty spaces that will make you think of those Super Mario Frustration videos. So how do you move forward? By summoning the powers of Tetris!

By pressing the space bar, you’ll be able to switch to Tetris and summon Tetriminoes resembling Super Mario Bros. blocks to create a path that Mario can take safely across the level. The screen will move continuously so you have to juggle the Tetris and Super Mario worlds frequently. You can also use the Tetrimonoes to crush Goombas, but they can harm Mario as well if you’re not careful.

I didn’t get too far, but the game is definitely a good time waster during this slow week.
