Pop culture mash-ups celebrate 30 years of Mario

A whole generation of gamers have grown up with Mario's adventures, including Brazil-based artist Butcher Billy, who's created these mash-up tributes.

Taking the biggest events from the last 30 years, Billy's given them a Mario twist by incorporating mushrooms, pipes and princesses. Stroll down a Mario-themed memory lane with these pixelated pictures.
