Wow okay its been a while since I have done a review. so I guess here we go. This game starts off as a nice day at the theme park, then Donkey Kong as usual kidnaps a poor helpless young woman. At this point you as the player take the role as Mario to save the poor woman. The way how this game is different from the other Mario games is that each level is a puzzle and you have to use wind-up Mario toys to solve them.
The game is broken down into 8 different sections, at the end of each section you have to battle DK to advance to the one. Each section has its own set-up for example one uses ladders, ones use springs and another uses floor panels. To solve a level you have to get all of the Mario toys to the exit, but in typical Mario fashion you have to be careful of shyguy’s, piranha plant’s and wigglers. Once you get through all levels you go against DK for the last time. when you complete you unlock some bonus features that makes the game even more enjoyable.
I think that this is a good game if you like solving puzzle games. The Mario aspect of the game does not add to or diminished the greatness of this game. The bad thing about this game is that it is too easy to get through, but the game makes up for it with the expert levels you get once you have completed the game, and the build a level feature. this is definitely a pick up and play game. If you are looking for a new puzzle game, this is not a bad place to start.
