I've managed to make a boss out of giant stacked winged thwomps, and instead of using a clown car, I put a bulls-eye bill launcher at the top of the stack and make the way to climb out just a tiny bit too high. By the way, if you want to try it out, it's FDF5-0000-0156-34B6

The last idea is so great it inspired me to do that single idea! if you need to deafet bowser/bowser jnr put a pipe coming from the sealing and put any kind of beatle/koopa troopa in the pipe and you need to kick the shell at the boss. Thanks for the idea Nintendo life and keep up the good work :D.

The main problem is that almost everyone expects super hard levels, so when you make a creative , fun, not too hard level, everyone says "wow that level was easy as hell I beat it in one try! U wot m8" honestly I hate designing hard levels because I dont always have enough time to play test it over and over again, I just like making levels that make you think and look around n stuff

Joe Collis (2 years ago)
My problems with this game 1) this concept has been done countless times with just flash games on websites. While I understand that this will have a larger player base, be more reliable and also convenient, you can get essentially the same experience for nothing but the price of your internet connection. 2) that damned stupid hand that seems to create the level. If you're playing this game, you already have a hand getting in the way of what you can see, no need to obscure the view even further. It just seems like a totally useless feature.
Grei (2 years ago)
+xtronikskillz You can also make the hand so small that you still get a good view even on the screen.

Hylian_Hero85 (2 years ago)
You know it's coming, but what sort of DLC would you like to see for this game? Enemy additions from each version that has been left out. The Koopalings from SMB3, Boom boom. Mario 3 and World's version of the firebar, the roto disc (from 3) and the Ball N Chain from World. The Sun, the walking flame from 3, the red piranha plants from Lost Levels, the various Hammer bro types, Boomerang, Fire, auto walking from Lost Levels. SMB2: Lost Levels graphics and the ability to change to the All-Stars version of these graphics for 1 and 3. Check points and maybe a map creator to connect each level. Power up progression. In other words, in order for it to be a fire flower or what ever you at least need to be Super (big) Mario. Lastly, more variety for the levels like night time, ice, desert, forest and maybe the different music to go with the types of levels, like the athletic themes.

something that needs added to the list is automated levels, ones where you sit still but due to chain reactions you somehow make it to the end. and have some kind of story while the character is going.
Ryan Jones (2 years ago)
Semi Solid platforms make for wonderful backgrounds~ I wanna make a whole bunch of them!
Linnie S. (2 years ago)
Personally I don't think secrets are that big an incentive in Super Mario Maker just because you can't create entire adventures. Lives and coins don't really matter because they don't transfer to the next level, power-ups don't transfer so they're only useful in the level you get them in, there isn't any progression in SMM between levels and the only important thing is getting to the goal, so secrets don't leave that big an impact as there's no reward from them other than the enjoyment of finding a hidden thing.
Noyz Gaming (11 months ago)
There should be an Infinity-Mario Challenge where you go through as many levels as you want, in either: Random order Rising difficulty Lowering difficulty Rising Star Rating Lowering Star Rating Pick-A-Path (choose levels and what order they appear in) or One Creator.

CodenameJD (2 years ago)
There are going to be so many creative ways to combine mechanics in this game that just haven't been done before. We're going to finding new things for a long time. I'm planning on making a series of levels depicting a war between Koopas and Goombas. Haven't entirely worked out the logistics yet, I'll have to see exactly what options the game will give me :P

Bowser wouldn't have looked that pixelated on Super Nintendo.
Keelo (1 year ago)
Baigandine L ikr
Burger Link (2 years ago)
What if you put this order from top to bottom. Hammer bro, bowser, tons of goombas. Get something like a shell dispenser, or a fire flower
SentsuizanXS (2 years ago)
+Baigandine L You don't seem to understand. In Mario Maker, when you make something bigger using the mushroom, all it does it make the sprite about 4x bigger. It doesn't redraw the whole thing in a bigger resolution. There's no need for it. In your original post you didn't mention that you were specifically talking about the embiggened version. Quite frankly it wouldn't be practical to have two versions of every sprite just to accommodate giant versions. Not to mention that while Kraid is in a single room by himself with just a few other sprites, Bowser is meant to be onscreen with a lot of other sprites. And actually, plenty of SNES games did the same thing with "giant" characters, just transform and stretch the original sprite. Just look at the pirahna plant boss in Super Mario World.
Baigandine L (2 years ago)
+SentsuizanXS They don't look the same to me; how would you know that? I disagree with the basic notion that the SNES was tapped out rendering Bowser, but even if that were the case, then they should actually IMPROVE the sprite when it is supersized. It is a question of design. Someone serious about how their characters appeared, would not say, "Oh well, it is bigger. What can ya do?" They would resort to some sort of trickery if necessary to make it look better. It is only the supersized Bowser I am saying is too pixelated-looking, as with other supersized characters. The characters were not supersized in the SNES era. If they were, they would not have looked like that. If they looked like that, they would not have put them in the game.
SentsuizanXS (2 years ago)
+Baigandine L There's nothing to disagree with. The original sprite is already pixelated, and it's the same character at the same size. They just updated it to be outside the clown car and closer to his actual design. Kraid is made of many multiple sprites joined together, and is a huge character with a very limited palette. It's easy to make him look detailed since his design only needs a few colors. Bowser isn't that large compared to a single tile and has a greater variation in coloring. That is why his sprite looks like it did in the original game (like shit). He had to use the same palette as the clown car. Technically speaking MM Bowser couldn't have been done on the SNES because there's way too many colors.

This video has just given me a great idea for a way to allow Mario to go into a pipe and come out of another pipe right next to in the same level. :-o From what I'm thinking, I could actually let Mario go in a pipe say on top of the ground and come out of one of the pipes in the little underground looking area you have here: https://youtu.be/e9jNeLpu69s?t=18 I might not be possible to do it perfectly, but I'm going to give it a wee go when I get my hands on the game. :-D

Use the Super Mario World Spin Jump in creative ways. You could create a track with a grinder, and require the player to spin jump along the track on the grinder.
wariolandgoldpiramid (2 years ago)
+TheLegless101 still, Kaizo. A much better idea is to have a bridge of turn blocks, force Mario to enter the bridge with a spin jump, and then Mario can't stop spin jumping until he crosses the bridge
TheLegless101 (2 years ago)
+wariolandgoldpiramid It's pretty easy to spin jump on a grinder actually.

Is there a setting to turn off these shadows? They just make things look..pasty.
Basketballer0409 (2 years ago)
I kinda like the drop shadows. It gives it more of an NES Remix feel
+jerq887 Yes, because the original game looked so lively with it's 8-bit scenery, it's hyper realistic clouds, and the amazing emotion-capturing art of the faces of Mario and his enemies. One look into his eyes that are literally four fucking pixels illustrates his determination like no other art I have ever seen before... Just kidding, I'm not trying to be rude.
jerq887 (2 years ago)
+No Name because mario's shadow can be seen on top of the background, it really doesn't make it seem like a lively world, it makes it feel like there's just a hard wall right next to him, like a painted background for a school play if there was an actual scenery off to the distance, the flagpole would NOT be casting a shadow on top of anything

How about instead of going through the steps to force a boss battle, can you guys just not be dicks and actually do the boss battles instead of skipping them
TheAceofMystery (2 years ago)
+wariolandgoldpiramid I didn't mean the original super mario bros, but yeah I get what you're saying
wariolandgoldpiramid (2 years ago)
+TheAceofMystery well, think about it. How many times did you actually "fight" a real of fake Bowser in SMB1 with a Fire Flower instead of just dropping the bridge? For me, not a lot
TheAceofMystery (2 years ago)
+metaXzero Oh no, I definitely agree with you, Nintendo needs to make boss battles forced in this games, as of now though, I just wish people wouldn't skip over them and actually enjoy the boss battles that some people create, if they're not forced
Callum Renwick (2 years ago)
+metaXzero Yeah, they ought to patch it.
metaXzero (2 years ago)
+TheAceofMystery Of course not. People will be "dicks" and pass up boss battles if the opportunity is there. If we could skip boss battles in official Mario games, people would whether to save time or just to laugh at the oversight of being able to skip the boss like some regular enemy. So yes, to make players fight bosses, the levels have to be designed to force the fight. That or Nintendo patches in Boss Clear to end levels.
