Sprite map of London Zone 1 and other map geekery

I’m more of a board-game than a console gaming kinda girl, but I do love retro gaming stuff – especially Nintendo stuff.

It’s certainly not very often that my retro gaming geekery coincides with my map geekery but every now and again I find something like this and it makes me very happy indeed.

Mapping London recently featured this amazing map of Zone 1 London featuring the sprites from Super Mario Bros 3.

And, to also have it appeal to my London-transport geekery…well, surely this is, therefore, the BEST map EVER!

More retro maps

If this whets your appetite for geeky retro maps, check out 8-bit cities, which features maps of London, New York, Tokyo and more.

And who can forgot Google Maps’ amazing 2012 April Fools prank, where they ‘released’ Google Maps for NES?!
