It’s easy enough to create your own levels with the Wii U GamePad controller that it may feel like you’re simply sketching out your ideas on paper, but you can now bring enemies and objects into a playable course in ways you could only consider before. Violate the conventions of traditional Super Mario gameplay by blending enemies, traps and items into unexpected twists, like Piranha Plant-shooting cannons, power-up-tossing Lakitus, or even Hammer Bros. riding on Bowser while bouncing on trampolines.

    Super Mario Maker is a construction tool bundled with the kind of online community Nintendo fans have always wanted.

    Whether you're a serious student of game design, looking to kill a few minutes with your friends' creations, or an avid enthusiast of sadism through game design, you'll find something to love in Super Mario Maker.

    There are more flexible and expansive creative tools, but none as joyous or accessible as this. [Oct 2015, p.51]

    Mario Maker is a must play for Wii U owners, whether they just want to make or play Mario levels. The interface is inviting and straightforward, and the way the game introduces its possibilities is amazing.

    Super Mario Maker is a crazy fun way of taking your own spin on thirty years of Mario. It is very easy to use, you can switch between building and playing in an instance and the online experience of sharing levels with other people will keep you busy for an endless period of time.

    Super Mario Maker is primarily an engine for circulating bad ideas and broken gimmicks as if there weren’t already an overabundance of them.

As possibilidades de Mario Maker são extremas, criar um level é simples, mas ao mesmo tempo viciante. Jogar os níveis da comunidade, apreciar a criatividade dos jogadores é muito bacana. Contudo, seria perfeito se não precisasse esperar um dia pra desbloquear novos itens. A exigência de ter um determinado número de estrelas para postar mais leveis também pode frustrar um pouco. No mais, é um game obrigatório para os jogadores de Wii U. Expand

The only part that really stinks about this whole thing is it's an idea stolen from fans, and in the process of its making, harmed those fans and basically told them to screw themselves. But, despite the history of the games development, I must admit that this is so much fun to mess around with. Expand

    Super Mario Maker cant really be considered a game but more Nintendo trying to squeeze a couple more pounds from the big plumber. ThisSuper Mario Maker cant really be considered a game but more Nintendo trying to squeeze a couple more pounds from the big plumber. This laziness shows in lack of lack of freedom and gets boring fast. the community don't help either as most levels are extremely difficult and consist of hundreds of enemies and a secret hidden block so the creator can publish it. Or you stand still and watch Mario bounce from spring to spring until he reaches the flag. If you think that sounds fun be my guest pick it up but prepare to play most of the game with out touching the game pad Expand
