Eisemann, writer and illustrator for CollegeHumor.com, has created an interactive map of the five boroughs in the indelible style of Super Mario World’s overworld. Who needs the Donut Plains when you can run ‘n jump around Brooklyn?

Explore this 16-bit NYC for yourself. Be warned: Staten Island is infested with Boos.
