Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

  As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers...

Review - Agents of Mayhem

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and...

Review - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Special Edition)

The Elder Scrolls is one of my top game series of all time, as with most fans I started my love for the series with the release of Oblivion but has since then gone back and played Morrowind. So when Skyrim was announced I was beyond excited and here we are, years later and I am reviewing one of...

New Software Update Brings Mid-Level Checkpoints and New Courses to Super Mario Maker

Created on Tuesday, 27 October 2015

maxresdefault-2

On Nov. 4, a free software update for the Super Mario Maker game brings new content to the hit title for the Wii U console. These include the ability to add mid-level checkpoints to levels, as well as the addition of Course World categories that highlight new levels from Nintendo and partner creators outside Nintendo. To date, more than 3.3 million levels are now available to play globally, and these new features add even more ways to play and create in the game than ever before

 

With the addition of mid-level checkpoints, users now have the option to add flags to their levels, allowing players to start at the selected point if they lose a life – rather than having to start over at the beginning of the level. Players can choose to edit and re-upload their own levels, or create new levels from scratch using this feature. Shaking an arrow sign item from the course parts palette will allow you to place a checkpoint flag.

Following the update, players can also insert power-ups that are dependent on Mario’s status. For example, by attaching a Super Mushroom to a Fire Flower and placing it inside a block, Mario will receive the Super Mushroom when he is small, and the Fire Flower when he is large.

The software update also introduces Event Courses in the game’s Course World online hub. Event Courses will feature levels from partner creators outside Nintendo. One of the first Event Courses will be “Ship Love,” the winning level from the “hackathon” event that was held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park earlier this year. Facebook is the first outside partner in the United States to design a level for Super Mario Maker; employees had the opportunity to design and present their creations to a panel of judges before the winning level was selected.

The level that was featured in the final round of the Omegathon event at this year’s Penny Arcade Expo event will also be available for players to experience shortly after the update goes live. New Event Courses will be added to the listing on an ongoing basis, some of which may even feature new Mystery Mushroom transformations. Additionally, a new Official Makers section in Course World will be added after downloading the update, featuring specially selected courses, including some created by Nintendo.

The free software update goes live on Nov. 4.
