Item abuse 3. Hardest mario level ever created

While this run of an incredibly difficult Super Mario World level is done with the help of tools (or, TAS for those of you that are savvy), hopefully it's obvious to everyone why that doesn't actually make this any less impressive. Just watching is stressful. Playing through the level requires an impressive amount of both jumping mastery, and item usage mastery—not to mention nerves of steel. It took PangaeaPanga a long time to beat the level, even with the help of a program that accepts button presses on individual frames. And this is that PangaeaPanga actually designed the level too. Lord knows how long it would take someone who doesn't have intimate knowledge of how the level works.

"Over the course of designing each room [in Item Abuse 3], I was able to realize that the similarities between Item Abuse 1 and Item Abuse 2 were atrocious, and that is one of the major things I tried to sway away with the third one," PangaeaPanga wrote. "In addition, I really wanted Item Abuse 3 to be known as the level in the series that really sticks out to everyone, which mainly meant increased difficulty. In retrospect to most tool-assisted speedrunners, Item Abuse and Item Abuse 2 may be known as the 'average difficulty level,' which is still much more difficult compared to the normal Super Mario World hack. Here, I wanted to really push the limits to even tool-assisted speedrunners."

"Anyone who can complete this is pretty much mentally insane," PangaeaPanga declared. All the same, brave players can try out Item Abuse 3 here. Phone Post 3.0

Fuck playing that

Holy shit  that is ridiculous! I used to think I was good at Mario. 

What game is this from? Why dont I remember it from the Super Mario world on the Snez?

If you didn't age and your entire job in life was to beat that with no cheats I would think it would be 100 years Phone Post 3.0

Part 2 looks like cake after watching 3

I don't remember ever seeing that, but the first screen is all I would have ever seen anyway. I like a bit of a challenge, but that doesn't even look like it would be fun.

Personal, I see the GH run as at least conceivable with a couple hundred hours of practice. That Mario shit, I have no clue WTF is even happening.

Fuckin' shit. That is too much. Not even a robot could beat that. Phone Post 3.0

Agreed but I could still never do either in a lifetime Phone Post 3.0

I'm not exactly sure the physics of the game were not changed to make it possible to beat which makes it less cool

Like Yoshi running on fire?...I don't remember that being in the same

Also around 2:20 to 2:24 you see Mario running on air which is deff a glitch

Yeah fuck all that..I would have given up after my first 10 tries. Phone Post 3.0

It says it's a TAS or tool assisted run. Takes away from it IMO. Still hard as fuck. Phone Post 3.0

That was definitely not done in real-time.  Playing the game using emulators you can slow the game down to a crawl and save/load states to replay areas over and over until you get it right.  Still hard but nowhere near the difficulty that it appears to be in the vid.
