Every once in a while, you get a Super Mario Maker level that’s rather ingenious. People are doing unexpected things with the Wii U game, like create puzzle levels that make you think Take, for example, Franco’s “Welcome to the POW House.” It’s a POW Block-themed level set in a Ghost House, but doesn’t use the blocks in the way you’d expect.


Instead of triggering the explosion, people will need to use the POW Blocks to find their way through the level and reach new areas. It’s quite clever, though watching the video above will give away the entire solution to the adventure.


If you have a Nintendo Wii U and want an example of well done level design, see this level at AFCC-0000-0090-9950.
