Following last month's collection of awesome video game/real world mash-up shots, lightning has struck twice. Well similar lightning, just in different places.

Artist and illustrator Jamie Sneddon and photographer Kevin Rozario-Johnson have worked together on these ace pictures which combine iconic 8-bit icons with various landscapes.

Imagine if Pac-Man actually ate Manhattan or how about if massive Mario Kart banana peels started showing up on roads? Admittedly, there'd be a lot of terrified New Yorkers and also a whole load of car wreckages but still, it would be worth witnessing.

In what appears to be turning into a bit of a trend, what retro video game icon would you like to see transported to our world? Answers below.
