Awesome game! The name rings a bell so I might've played the first one, but either way... love the mario references in this. Everything is clearly similar, character, backgrounds, coin collecting, flowers, etc... with some subtle differences like how you get flushed down a toilet rather than a pipe, how the clouds hang on strings, how eh... things are a bit different. :P it's still just as captivating as the original though, or maybe more so because it's in fact not as predictable, you get some twists with this game. Rewarding, fun; great work!
