So... anyone pick up this instant DS classic? It's like an amazing combination of SMB1 and SMB3, with a splash of SMW (though not much)! It's pretty fantastic so far. C'mon, support the first original 2D classic Mario platformer in about a dozen years!
It's really great so far! Very nostalgic to the original game meeting elements of Super Mario 3 and World's map unlocking system. But most importantly, it is just as fun as the originals were. And I agree, it is about time they game out with another sidescrolling classic style Mario game!

Yeah, it's great, me happy! One thing I don't like, is that you can't save your progress again, until you actually beat, ANOTHER castle. In otherwords, if you go thru a castle twice, the 2nd time, it doesn't let you save.......atleast, not for me anyways

I mentioned that, cuz gamemusicfreak, mentioned that he would like to see a new Kid Icarus done the same way as the new Mario. And, I really don't like Nintendo's choice in name for their new system, so, I think I plan on calling it the Revolution forever! Besides, I've noticed there are games called John Madden Revolution, Bomberman Revolution, etc. Are they going to change the names to John Madden Wii & Bomberman Wii? That just doesn't have the same ring to it
I beat the game (thought I haven't finished it yet). I've completed worlds 1-7 at 100%, now I'm trying to finish off world 8 before beating it again.
You can prompt the game to allow you to save in a few ways: Beat a tower (first time). Beat a castle (first time). Use a warp cannon (first time). Unlock a star coin gate (one time per gate). Change your bottom screen wallpaper (any time).
i got it on thursday awesome game, but way to easy i beat it by friday morning with out getting a game over once, i breezed right through the game like it was nothing. i did the classic SMB trick when you jump on the turtle shell near the end of the stage on the staircase of blocks and got like 50 1ups. i was not even trying to do this because i had so many extra guys i did not have to continue at all i died a few times mainly in the castles but the found the rets of the game way to easy. as for changing the backgrounds in the begining on the game the first toadstool house i believe will allow you to purchase new ones.
it was fun while it lasted though i am right now just trying to collect all the gold coins.
