Mario is the One

This is a Mario fan game that has worlds worth of fun.

While it may be challenging at time, the difficulty ramps up slowly and deliberately. Life-ups drop at an adequate rate, but I still got a few gameovers. There is a lot of boxes hidden away that are hard to get to, but do tend to have rewarding stuff inside. In other words, this game give you a lot of incentives to explore each and every level. It seems incredibly well polished. My main complaint here would be that some parts of the world map looks cluttered, especially that first area.

It also has a story to it that is surprisingly in-depth for a Mario game. Well, Mario Games have very little plot anyways, so it doesn't make for that big of a standard. You may be looking for crystal balls instead of the usual thing, but the reason for looking for them is explained. Not many people play Mario for the story, so if this plot sounds weird to you it's ok. This fan-game would survive without it's story equally well. The story is just icing on the cake that Peach gives Mario in a dozen other games.

It has superb looking graphics for what it is. It doesn't entirely use the prepacked graphics. I believe this adds quite a bit to the game. It's called "Neo Retro" for a reason. It has updated and new looking retro graphics. If it didn't have these, it simply would not live up to it's name.

Overall, I'd recommend this game to anyone who wants a nice looking, fun, and somewhat casual Mario experience. This game shows a large amount of polish to it and if you like Mario, you are going to have fun with it. It is a worthwhile addition.

Ha, hilarious! We both reviewed the game on the exact same day. So much about being it to the punch - it looks like you beat me to the punch first. (Why am I so sloooww!?!?!?)

Hmmm…”worlds of fun,” huh? Tell me, what did you think of World 6-4? Did you die as many times as I did, lol.

Oh well, at least Ratty524 got his review and then some. Good job, mate.

If that's the one I'm thinking of, I wouldn't know, I lost count! I probably died around a hundred times, lol.
(Yeah, a hundred lives is only a "few" gameovers...)

If only I delayed exactly one more hour...
Lol, well at least you’re honest.

I didn't even anticipate World 6-4 being in the "That One Level" status. Now that I look at the thing, though, it doooooes kind of require that you make precision jumps a little too much.

Welp.

Anyway, thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the game, volke.

Someday my training will be complete and I'll face the wonderful wizard of Kaizo to reclaim the 4 elemental crystals and save the world from the Ganon.
