graffiti question

Hey, someone just painted this big mural on a wall in my neighbourhood. I feel like I ought to know what it's referencing. Is it a video game?

looks vaguely super mario-esque

It's probably just a tribute to 8 bit games in general. I could be wrong though, it might be referencing something specific.

Yeah, the same. I don't recognise it but it does look like it could be a Super Mario Game that I've somehow never played or even heard of.

I think it's probably a reference to Super Generic Platformer World 6.

You should take a pot of paint along and add some characters to it!

It looks very generic...

Perhaps they just followed the brick pattern which is why it looks "pixely" and they weren't even thinking of videogames when they did it? Or at least no a specific videogame?

I'm in agreement with erudite baboon, You need to add something to it by cover of darkness.

You boys are so very naughty! I would never do something like that... not without my hoodie pulled up real tight.

It is a bit stale. You should definitely add some pixelly goodness to it.

I think it's MEANT to be Mario-y, possibly drawn from memory. I mean if you take all of the pieces - they are all from Mario, they just aren't very well done.

The brick steps, the blocks in the air, the triangle hills, the cloud with a face and what I think is a Starman.
