Super Mario Bros. Crossover 2.0 is out! An expansion on the original game, which let you play as various NES characters transplanted into Super Mario Bros., but using the rules and abilities of those characters from their original games, version 2 offers more special abilities, more characters, and your choice of audiovisual "skins" based on four Mario games from the NES, SNES, and Gameboy, along with one based on Demon Returns. There's even instructions for playing with a gamepad! For more information, see the Super Mario Bros. Crossover Wiki or watch the exciting Super Mario Bros. Crossover trailer! [Previously]

I've been looking at that page (first link) for two minutes, and I can't figure out where to click in order to actually play.

Would someone explain the painfully obvious to me?

I'm using Safari | OS X

Click on the game screen itself once it has loaded up and the music starts playing.

Oh, hey, selecting the character with the X button gives you a choice between a bunch of characters from that game! Sweet!

*sigh* I take it that this is a Flash-Only interface then. (thanks Jelly)

sidereal: Chrome has its own built-in Flash thingy and is my go-to browser for flash-intensive web stuff. I use Safari on OS X most of the time myself, but Chrome is great for doing something like playing this game.

You just killed productivity for the rest of the day. My employer will not be happy.

Oh, the SNES version is great. As an SNES-era gamer, the 8-bit stuff doesn't quite tweak my nostalgia button like 16-bit does.

This is why copyright violation is awesome.

Not joking.

I've been playing as the Contra dude all morning. This is the greatest thing ever. You get that spread gun and a star and you're just this all-powerful invincible monster.
