I've been playing a lot of New Super Mario Bros. Wii with the kids.

This is my interpretive-imitation of the logo.

The v and V are the weakest, but I couldn't find a better solution given the constraints of the bricks and filters.

An alternate i is on the # and an alternate (smaller) & is on the

Very convincing ... more so than the excuse that you were playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii with the kids. C'mon ... 'fess up.

Must rush - I'm off for a game of golf ... me and Tiger PS style :)

I like your solutions better than the original. Excellent reproduction too.

@p2pnut No readlly, it's for the children. :)

I'm lovin Tiger Woods 2010 on the Wii.

@thalamic Thanks...Your input and praise is always much appreciated.

Good job. The V might have been rendered differently, but there aren't many options using variable scaling.

There's nothing like being beaten by your own child in a video game, especially being raised up with Atari 2600 and NES.

Nice interpretation Aphoria. Between this, DJ Nippa's Grand Theft AutoStruct, Goatmeal's entire catalog and many more, I think soon, FontStruct will have the entire video game industry locked up.

Also, with a few brick deletions (and with a hat tip to Karl Gerstner), you could power up a stencil font so strong it would split Bowser's shell in half.

@geneus1 Thanks. I agree about the v and V, but the filter really limited my options there.

My kids are still young enough that they think I'm the greatest Super Mario player in the world. :)

@afrojet Thanks and good idea about the stencil version. I've started playing around to see what I can do with it.

@cayo Thank you too...the & is one of my faves.

That is the sweetest age. I'm glad you get to experience that joy. :-)

And may I be so bold as to say: *hug*
Comment by thalamic 25th january 2010
You could solve your Vv issue like this:
(This is my humble suggestion, of course)
Comment by cayo 26th january 2010
@thalamic It is the sweetest age. I have a 7 (girl), 4 (girl), and 1 year old (boy). The joys far outweigh the frustrations...most days. :)

I'm man enough to happily accept your hug. Thanks. :)

@cayo I had briefly considered that solution, but I thought the difference from the u/U was too subtle.

I just added you suggestion as alternate v/V on the ( and ).

@afrojet Thanks for the Top Pick!
Comment by aphoria 26th january 2010
nice clean lines. very modern and now. like the nib on the V - very funky :)
Comment by funk_king 1st february 2010
@funk_king Thank you...the v/V has grown on me too.
Comment by aphoria 1st february 2010
This is one of the fonts that the 1 pixel bordering is really taking it's toll on. There's got to be a better way.

This ia almost possible with the new connecting bricks...

I was thinking how you made this, and I tried myself.

I got something close, but not exactly.

Comment by KyooshiFonts 27th april 2018

I made Power-Up many years ago, before many of the more advanced Fontstruct features, like nudging, existed. I used a 1.75 vertical and horizontal brick size filter to achieve the narrow gaps.
