Super Cop World verbindet das Klassiker Video Arcade Spiel Super Mario mit Sequenzen aus in Hong Kong produzierten Kung Fu Filmen, die einen ganz maßgeblichen Anteil zu Hong Kongs Populärkultur beitragen. Die Collage aus Szenen von Jacky Chan Filme, wird über die Bewegungen des Computerspiels gelegt und somit wird Jacky Chan als „Ersatz-Mario“ zum Retter der Prinzessin und Super-Helden des Spiels.
