Super Mario Maker

I can say without a doubt that Super Mario Maker is the best game ever created, and for good reason. I gave Super Mario Maker to my 8-year old daughter for Christmas this year, but I really wanted it for myself. This game feels totally nostalgic, but at the same time it’s new and a great way for the younger generations to gain an appreciation for the original Mario Bros.

The Mario experience of your dreams is here!

I feel a certain sense of pride being a child of the 80s and being a part of the generation that first experienced Nintendo and Mario Bros. I remember thinking as a child just how neat it would be to change a few things here and there on Mario Bros. The 30 years it took to get the opportunity to create my own levels was totally more than worth it!

This game is so easy to use!

I was a little worried that this game would be hard to play and create with. That worry quickly went out the door when my children started creating new levels right before my eyes. There are 60 different objects you can use to create with. And many of the objects change into something different if you shake them. Choose from 26 different sound effects plus a sub-world.

Mario Maker game review

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’s a grand total of 24 different themes! The possibilities are near limitless.

The best game ever created! #supermariomaker – Full review coming to my blog soon. #nintendowiiu #nintendo #supermario #supermariobros

My oldest child likes to create really difficult levels for me to play. Jasmine is really good at challenging her dad and I and creating some truly unique levels.

  • Create your own Mario levels by using the Wii U GamePad controller touch screen to add enemies, blocks, pipes and more.
  • Touch control, instant editing and a robust online ranking and search system makes creating, playing and sharing a seamless process.
  • Transform into different characters at random with the new Mystery Mushroom item. Expand the roster of possible characters by completing 100 Mario Challenge mode or tapping a compatible amiibo.

  1. My son would love this. He loves Mario and video games and we even have a Wii. What a great way to stimulate his love of creating – by making his own levels.

    This looks so cool. I would love to play this game, I have been a Mario fan since I was a kid.

  3. I want it for myself! I’m not sure I should admit it but I still hook up the old school Nintendo and play Super Mario Bros 3 once in awhile.

  4. Looks like you have some Mario fans in your house. My girls also enjoy Super Mario games and I think my husband enjoys reminiscing.

  5. I loved Mario as a kid. I’m so glad I can share the memories with my kiddos. I can’t wait to get this to play with them.

  6. This looks like a really fun game. My son is just now getting into video games and I bet he would like this one.

  7. Mario is such a great character that can be shared with all ages. Happy to hear that the game is easy to play and everyone enjoyed playing with it.
