Minus World in Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros. is one of the most famous games ever. It just seems to fit that what is perhaps the largest programming (glitch) error in the history of the gaming is found in this game. The Minus World.
Minus World Info
The Minus World in Super Mario Bros. is a major glitch through a programming flaw. The Minus World is a never ending underwater level that's actually level 2-2, it just loops. When a player first enters the level, the screen says World -1, hence where it got the name Minus World

Getting to the Minus World is just strange. It's amazing what steps need to be taken, because they seem so out of place. Either way, it's the only way to get there.

The first thing you need to do is get to level 1-2, the first underground level. Proceed through the level, but you must be Super Mario at the end. Once you reach the pipe, do not go in it. Stand on it, and you'll be able to reach the blocks. However, you only need to break the 2nd and 3rd blocks from the right of the pipe.

You can actually just break the 2nd block, but it's easier if you also break the 3rd. The next thing you need to do is face left. Jump backwards and try to have Mario's head hit the lower left corner of the 1st block. If done correctly, Mario will start to slide through the blocks, as shown below:

You don't need to press anything, so just let him slide. When he's finished, all you need to do is go down the first pipe to reach the Minus World. The other pipes will lead you to different places, so you don't really need to go through them. You'll notice the similarity between level 2-2 and this epic glitch. Congratulations on getting there!
