Build and Rebuild the Mushroom Kingdom. For the first time ever, anyone can create 2D Mario levels using Wii U GamePad controller.
Making courses is easy. Players use the GamePad touch screen to easily drag and drop elements they want in their levels. Place blocks, pipes, lifts and enemies anywhere and play through the level. Want a Goomba to wear a Piranha Plant on its head, build a tower 10 Goombas tall or make a Piranha Plant fly by giving it wings?
Players can instantly playtest and edit their creations on the fly. If something isnt working, go back into edit mode immediately by tapping a button and make tweaks until everything is just right.
With the tap of an icon, users can even switch the visual style between a classic 8-bit Super Mario Bros. look and the HD world of New Super Mario Bros. U.
Mario Maker includes the ability to tap the Wii U GamePad screen to change the look of the level design to a number of classic styles, including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U. Each style includes game mechanics unique to the original game, such as ground-pound or wall-jump manoeuvres. Players can integrate these mechanics into designs for older games.
