Super Mario Maker’s recent update finally introduced the checkpoint system that players have been asking for since the games launch. Unfortunately, it’s not without its faults, as users have already found ways of taking advantage of the mechanic.
United States user, Wave has created a level titled “The Wave Warp: Flag Glitch,” which exploits the fact that the checkpoint re-spawns Mario at the base of the flag. By placing the flag on bricks, above an otherwise unreachable area, Wave seemingly forces players to die before beating the level. You can check out the glitch in the video below. If you wanted to play the course yourself, the ID is F171-0000-00D6-D8E9.
