This game was very interesting. I liked the idea of a scary, hell-like game world in a Mario game. The game was very gloomy and sparked a lot of curiosity. This entire game is essentially what would be expected of a World 8. Great job!
But I do have some complaints. The first is a VERY big deal. Apparently, if I go through a map transition on the over world, there's a chance the game may freeze, and the game freezes often! If the game doesn't freeze, the music on the over world will literally sound like very loud TV static. Going into a level and going back to the over world from the level in any way will return the over world to normal until you use another map transition on the over world. This is very serious and game breaking and it needs to be fixed A.S.A.P.!
What's with that green checkerboard area? Why is it there? It seems very pointless. It doesn't seem to be needed. The pipe at the beginning of World 1 can essentially be replaced with that arrow tile that's at the beginning of Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. Am I incorrect here? Am I missing something here?
I also notice that the banner at the bottom of the over world screen that says the world name says, "Yoshi's Island", while you're in the checkerboard area. What?
I liked the
"World of Nothing" and "Castle Bleck" from Super Paper Mario
. It was a very unique twist. You would NOT expect that in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
But even then
seemed inconsistent. 3D models in a pure 2D environment don't mix very well. It also just seemed weird to see stuff like coins, bricks, enemies,
and...color in a world where there would otherwise be, well, nothing
. I don't know. The place just had a different feel than
You should also change the "NEWER SUPER MARIO BROS. WII" text in the message box that appears when you get all of the Star Coins to say "NEWER APOCALYPSE" instead.
Overall, this game was good. I'd probably rate it 7.5/10.
And PLEASE fix the issue that's described in the second paragraph of this post. And either remove that green checkerboard area or, if that can't be done, provide some kind of explanation for why it must be there.
Also, I only have 4 stars on my save file, even after completing everything, or so I think. How do I get all 5?
