Like Lost but with Mario instead of John Locke

Probably not considering that this level is one of the "lost" levels of Super Mario Bros. 3! Using the electronic wizardry of a the venerable Game Genie, even a lowly plebeian like yourself can experience these strange and wondrous creations.

No one, save perhaps Miyamoto himself, knows why these hidden levels exist. Perhaps they were used to test various functions of the game. Or maybe they are unused levels that were too hard or simply didn't make the final cut. Whatever the case, these levels remained hidden, lost in the machine code of the game ROM for years until some intrepid NES freak discovered the means to access them.
