Some Bricks Do, In Fact, Hang in the Air

Your progress along the rather narrow (and strangely one-way) path is briefly interrupted when you clonk your head against a low-hanging brick, which is somehow hovering in mid-air a few feet off the ground.

Growling angrily, you punch the brick, momentarily forgetting how much you like your knuckles unbroken. Fortunately, it offers little resistance -- it bounces slightly in the air, producing a strange bloodle-doop! noise, and a red-and-white flower grows out of it.

What the hell is wrong with this place?

  • The adventure refers to the original Super Mario Bros. which features hovering bricks that can occasionally be smashed for power-ups such as fireflowers, as well as the annoyance that once you've moved the screen forward, you cannot move back, thus the "strangely one-way" path.
