Super Mario Maker


Recommended Posts

Not sure if its been mentioned in the thread but the NVC podcast (well worth checking out) mentioned theres limits to what you can place in levels. But the limits are odd, you're never told how many of an item you can place before you git the limit and hitting a limit for one item will also disable a load of others. Not a downer really, but it seems like you can hit limits a bit easier than you may think.

That reminds me of an old games magazine that came out in the early 90s, featuring complete screenshot maps of all the levels in various different games including SMW and Zelda 3. I must have pored over those tiny pictures for hours back then when it were all fields round here and you could get tuppence hapeth of corn in a bucket for the price of half a penny sweet and still have change to buy your own private island in the carribean and everyone wore hats and you left your doors unlocked so any old bugger could walk in but it was okay because there were only seven people alive back then and you knew all of them apart from that one dirty looking man who used to wave sticks at wildlife and shout obscene epithets at telegraph poles that were actually just known as trees back then before the telegraph was invented and kids these days they don't know they're born with their beepy boopy lectric pads and funky drug hairstyles and that was when Britain was great my friends.

I've got a miserable lack of imagination when it comes to these things so I was thinking of staying away from the level building as I'd either be putting together some terrible hotchpotch of bad ideas, or just copying an old level at best (not in itself such a bad thing, I suppose). That video makes some great points on classic Mario level design though, makes it seem a lot more manageable to maybe come up with something good just by breaking it down like that.

One thing I do want to do it make some for my little girl, she's not two yet but likes pressing the buttons and stuff so something nice and simple with some sound effects from daddy should be pretty cool for her :)

Ordered it last night. I'd love to see some kind of hub world dlc where you can create a full map to house your levels in akin to Super Mario World.

We need a proper Super Mario World 2 essentially. Why haven't they done this?*






Yoshi's Island doesn't count.
