Is it possible to complete New Super Mario Bros without touching a single coin? Well, we will not spoil Ceave Gaming's work – which looks like it took weeks – by giving that answer in front. Watch the video.
But know that this helpful collapse of how you make it unthinkable, if not impossible, will convince you that you know the answer early and then it's on your mind. Certainly anyone who has played this game already thinks at a stage where it's impossible to come through coin-less. And just then Ceave Gaming will take it on. Then look all the way through.
Ceave Gaming takes advantage of every trick in the book to try to make it coinless. The Acorn Suit featured prominently, like Mini-fungus and Baby Pink Yoshi's inflatable helicopter power. Much of the work is to just play through the game to identify the world's route that involves at least "dangerous" (coin collection) levels.
