Game: Super Mario Maker
Reviewer: Jason, Age 12
Have you ever wanted to create your own Mario courses? Well now you can with Super Mario Maker.
Super Mario Maker is a very easy to use Mario level creator with almost infinite possibilities for levels. There are 60 different objects you can use, with many of them changing into a different object when you shake them. You can also add 26 different sound effects plus a sub-world.
The interface is very simple and easy to use. All you have to do is drag and drop objects to the course using the Wii U Gamepad.
You can share you creations online but at first you can only share 10 levels but as your levels get stars you can share more. In the 10 Mario Challenge, you play through 8 different pre-made courses with only 10 lives. In the 100 Mario Challenge, you play through 8 or 16 custom levels with 100 lives.
You can use 4 different game themes (Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U), and 6 different level themes: Ground, Underground, Underwater, Ghost House, Airship and Castle. That makes 24 different themes! The level creation process is really fun.
When you start the game you only have 12 items, but every day you unlock more. After 9 days, you unlock everything. If you don’t want to wait you can just change the date on your Wii U. There are 99 different amiibo costumes which you can unlock using amiibos or by beating the 100 Mario Challenge which you can only use in the Super Mario Bros. Theme.
Sadly, you can only share your levels via a long level code and you can’t share with your friends but that may be fixed in an update.
If you use the 30th Anniversary Mario amiibo, you can put a Big Mushroom into your game which when collected allows Mario to become huge, the screen looks like a CRT television, many enemies look like Mario or Luigi and Mario can now break blocks!
Super Mario Maker is one of the best Wii U titles out there.
