Good review! I saw one sentence with a typo: "The art stye it is a visual treat without being overwhelming."

I haven't completed playing the game, hence my lack of a review. I've played enough to know I agree with a lot of what you said, and to find a number of tricky hidden exits. There are some stages in the game, which I can't tell if you played, that are among the very most difficult ever featured in a Mario game. Not all players will find them, and I wouldn't want to say more and spoil things for anyone.

For me, the willingness to explore secrets of the old school sort is one of the best things about the game. The badges, I can mostly take or leave. The art style is good. The levels are fun, a lot of them. It feels like it came and went without a lot of people noticing, but it's definitely good stuff, as you noted.

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world2

Nice review. And good to see you back. I had to do a double take when I saw the author's name.

I'd never heard of this game, so thanks for putting it on my radar.

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!

Dagnabbit! I almost had a spotless post. Thanks for catching that, Honestgamer. I'm inclined to agree...this game seemed to have been passed over by the people for whom it was intended. To me it seemed like a passion project by talented fans, not unlike mods for previous titles. Staying in the mindspace of players isn't easy.

Masters - you're welcome. I couldn't pass this one up for a review. I've got some others under my belt that will probably make it here. It's where I'm most read, after all.

Look, the only time I'm not wrong is when I'm right, so...
