I've been playing a fair bit of Super Mario Maker and it's great. One of the issues — obviously — is finding good levels to play. The code system is a bit silly, it's hard to search by keywords. You're at the mercy of Nintendo essentially, hoping they select good levels to highlight.
So I asked Australia's development community to send me some of their levels. And then I played them. Now you can watch me play them!
Some of them are pretty good. I've listed them below if you want to give any of them a bash.
In terms of pure giddy fun, I think I enjoyed precision jumping the most. It just has this glorious sensation of speed and OH MY GOD I HAVE TO KEEP RUNNING AT FULL SPEED. I liked the glorious weirdness of Matt Kelly's Inkopolis Docks. Rachel McQueenie's Kompanion Koop was another winner: really intelligent and well put together level. Loved it.
I'd like to apologise in advance for my irrational hatred of Ship levels from Super Mario Bros. 3. I don't know why I don't like them. I just don't.
