Power-ups - the performance enhancing drugs of the video game world. From invincibility to super powers, each finely-balanced booster can help players out of a tight spot in their game of choice.

But what if things got mixed up? What if Sonic was able to run riot with a DOOM power-up? Or if Mario swapped items with Pac-Man?

That's the premise of Dorkly's latest video game short, which sees the iconic power-ups of one game cause chaos in others. It seems that a helpful bonus in one world can drastically unbalance things in another. Poor Bomberman...
