Review

Good

  • I like the addition of the Super Mario 64 enemies into a pseudo-2D Mario game.
  • The mega mushroom was a nice new powerup. The mini mushroom, not so much.
  • The inclusion of the wall jump was nice.
  • There was some pretty nice level design, and the new objects that alter the maps (P-switches which shift the floor, water level shifters, etc.) are well used.
  • The graphics do a pretty good job of marrying raster backgrounds and 3D sprites.
  • The environment graphics are pretty wonderful.
  • I love how the characters in the game react to the "wah wah" of the above ground theme music.
  • I like how the screen shifts from top to bottom when you go down pipes.

Bad

  • The game is still a bit too similar to standard Super Mario Bros. For the most part, I felt like I was playing a level expansion rather than a new game.
  • I'm so tired of the damsel in distress trope. Sing us a new one.
  • The 1up guessing "game" isn't a game because its entirely random.
  • While I appreciate the addition of mini games, they're all pretty dull.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
