Super Mario Maker 2 lets you play a near limitless number of side-scrolling levels anytime, anywhere, but if you’re not up for an extreme challenge, these courses by Alex Tan, better known as PangaeaPanga, should be avoided. Before creating these seemingly impossible levels in Super Mario Maker, he was the world record holder for speedrunning Super Mario World in 2015, completing the game in a mere 1 minute and 38 seconds using arbitrary code execution. Now, he’s come up with Super Skyzo, Zero G’s Given, Panger Things and lots more. Read more to see him play through these stages like a true pro.

He’s the infamous person behind the Super Mario Maker course called “Pit of Panga: P-Break”, which took him 9-hours to beat before it could be uploaded to Nintendo’s servers. All of this was livestreamed on Twitch for a live internet audience.
Zero G’s Given
I'm sorry, but I made another level that ended up being harder than I wanted it to be.

At the end of October 2015, “P-Break” was completed 41 times, so he went on to create an even more difficult course called “Pit of Panga: U-Break”. This was later awarded the Guinness World Record for the “Most difficult level created in Super Mario Maker”.
I made an upside-down Kaizo level. Please don't play this.

Just a few more cool facts about Panga is that he started playing through Super Mario World while blindfolded on June 16, 2015, and completed a full run of the game like this just eight days later, getting the inspiration from gamer DavisKongCountry, who played portions of the game blindfolded.
