News the you from 30 years ago could use: A new glitch leading to infinite 1Ups in Super Mario Bros. on NES has been discovered.

RetroCollect.com, which is a website dedicated to old-school gaming for NES, SNES, N64 and the likes, has reported a new glitch in Super Mario Bros that leads to infinite 1Ups. While the info would have been more pertinent 30 years ago when we were playing the game on our bulky 17-inch TV sets — in Technicolor, mind you! — it’s still cool that new Easter eggs are being found three decades later.
How it’s done is complicated so we won’t bother explaining. Yes, there is something to be said about our laziness, but it’s also a matter of you not ever attempting to replicate it and us wasting our time. Plus, the people at RetroCollect already wrote it out, so in an attempt to refrain from plagiarism, we’ll just give them a golf clap for their hard-nosed journalism and suggest you read their more in-depth story.
Of course, there is always the possibility that the Super Mario Bros. game was doctored by a hacker with too much time on his hands. But that’s clearly a fallacy considering hackers are typically the busy social butterflies … right?
