When you apply google maps’ directions to Mario

This is what happens when the forward searching algorithm A* is applied to a hacked version of Mario (that means artificial intelligence is controlling Mario).  A* is pretty similar to the algorithm google maps uses to efficiently find a quick path from Mike’s apartment to Taco Bell, and from Taco Bell to Wendys.

You can see the red projections that seem to be where Mario can end up in the future based on different sets of control actions.
