Pretty damn awesome.
Definitely the best online Mario game I've played. Not totally seamless, but pretty damn awesome. I did encounter a major glitch early on, where when you're fighting King Bob-omb, if he grabs you while you hit him with one of his bombs, you disappear and can't do anything. While it's not perfect, it's definitely worth playing.
This has got to be THE best game i've seen on newgrounds. The graphics are great for a 2D scroller. I hope that someone working for nintendo sees this and takes this idea! Super Mario 64 + Super Mario Sunshine...
This is great work and has obviously been worked on more than any other. You rule dude. You and anyone that helped you eserver to get payed for this stuff!!! to sum it up: I love you man!!! 10/10
I started my review of this game by nitpicking all of the minor things that annoyed me and explaining how it wasn't as good as Super Mario Galaxy. Then I realized I was comparing a $50 console game made by Nintendo to a free flash game with it only slightly behind! 5/5 & 10/10!
Now onto the nitpicking:
#1 The music selection while good, was a bit limited. I understand the space requirements though, so this is forgiveable. But it's not like there isn't a wealth of awesome Mario music to use if you ever decide to update it with new songs.
#2 There's no running long-jump. I miss this function and the little weird swirly jump he does instead is not a consolation. However, it's not a big deal since the triple jump is still there.
#3 Platforms are a bit too slidy. A tiny bit more friction when walking would have been nice. However, having the FLUDD mitigates this greatly.
#4 The story is weak. Even for a Mario game. My biggest complaint was when Mario got knocked unconscious and Bowser decided to let him escape because "He's my greatest rival and I want some competition." or something like that. Bowser doesn't think of Mario as his rival and definitely woulnd't let him off scott-free. Maybe an "Escape Bowser's Castle" intro level would have been appropriate or maybe Mario got transported randomly instead of knocked out when he was hit and it took him a while to get back. Either way, giving Bowser total power over Mario and then having him let Mario go was a bit annoying. The rest of the story is ok, if a bit too obvious or low brow in places.
#5 All the graphics were good, although a few things felt a bit off and didn't quite look like something in a Mario game. Sometimes it was hard to distinguish what was a background and what wasn't. All in all, it was minor, but it's something to think about in the future. Oh, and why didn't the portraits of Peach have a face? Very odd looking.
Everything else so far is amazing! This game really helps fill the void left by beating Super Mario Galaxy.
