There Was A Genesis Version Of Super Mario World (Huh, What?)

It wasn't official, of course, but thanks to the magic of bootleg cartridges, there was indeed a version of Nintendo's classic platformer ported to Sega's rival console.

The game is a little janky, and missing some features altogether (no Yoshi, for example), but as you can see, there's some kind of Super Mario World experience to be had. Using a Genesis controller.

Dogs and cats, living together, people.

It looks to be way better than the last Mario port job for the Genesis we saw, which made things easy for itself by bringing over the original Super Mario Bros.

Why can't Mario play just like it did on the the SNES as the Genesis? It looks like bad porting. There are plenty of Genesis games that were as complex as Mario (sans over world) Was running not an option in the port? Sonic games were fast and the Gensis handled it just fine.
