Shane Birkinbine of Bentonville, Ark., used “Super Mario Maker,” to pull off all the stops in his pursuit toward marrying the love of his life. For those unaware, "Super Mario Maker" lets users create levels.

Birkinbine configured the levels to propose to his girlfriend Pam Edwards. As Brikinbine's girlfriend Pam Edwards played through the level, he directed her on how to proceed...

“It spells out your name, I think?” he says.
