Hands On With Mario Vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!

Those tiny wind-up Marios are at it again; this time they're out to save mini Pauline from a Donkey Kong hiding out in Mario's third theme park.

The fourth game in the series, Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, still has you tapping toy Marios to have them march across a vertical landscape, collecting items and eventually taking out the Donkey Kong threat. I've always found these puzzle games to be charming and fun to play.

This time around the game features new mini Pauline, as well as the inclusion of the popular Super Guide autopilot that can play through the chunks of the game you can't.

The biggest push seems to be the edit and play features which allow you to create your own levels and Nintendo's decision to host regular themed challenges to choose the best user-created content.

Here's a quick look at me playing the game last week. And no, those girders aren't new to the franchise.
