Nintendo is officially making mobile games. While we wait to see what fruit the company's partnership with DeNA will bear, our readers imagine exciting new ways to play and pay for Nintendo games on their phones and tablets. Maybe it won't be all that bad?

I was expecting last week's 'Shop Contest to bear dozens of images of Mario having to pay for extra lives and jumping, many of our readers took the idea of a mobile Nintendo in a different direction. Many posted hopeful images of what could be. Others imagined nightmare scenarios.

This week's winner, Ginger Snap, imagined a mobile game that captured the spirit of the original NES system, bringing back one of the biggest working fallacies of our youth. The blowing really doesn't do anything, yet it does. That's Nintendo magic!

Scroll down to see the rest of this week's winners once your payment clears.
