Doo, doo, doo, doo-doo doo-doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo. Yes, it's the Super Mario music. Is it playing in your head right now?

Leonardi is a huge NBA fan. Jump, Robby, jump!

And lives in New York.

What about his programming skills? They look pretty watertight.

Level 3 is all about Robby's experience. Here he is avoiding the robotic grabber of AOL, where he worked as an online ad designer.

Would you like to ri-i-ide, in my beautiful balloon? Robby takes you on a trip past all the awards he's won or been nominated for.

Finally, you've arrived at the end of the game. Robbie's contact details are waiting for you. Still no sign of Princess Peach, though.
