Each time, the final contestants standing compete at the end of PAX weekend in a round of a mystery game, in order to win the grand prize.

It’s always exciting to see what game will be chosen—for example, last year’s Omegathon finale was a specially designed Super Mario Maker course created just for the event. And this year, the Nintendo tribute stayed alive with a final round of… Super Mario Bros. 3.

The two Omeganauts were told to proceed through the game and achieve the highest possible score they could manage on a ten minute timer. They had infinite lives to complete the challenge, but both contestants had a tough go of it—neither one made it past the first main fortress. And all Nintendo fans watching shook their heads in sadness…
