Super Mario 64 brings up instant great memories for me. The Nintendo 64 masterpiece has been around for 18 years now and still stands the test of time. If you have played any Mario games, then you kind of get the gist of how the game goes.
Bowser (Mario’s antagonist) has kidnapped Princess Peach (Mario’s love interest) and it’s basically the same in this instalment of the game, however it’s the first time that we can control Mario in a 3D setting and the results are absolutely fun.
You explore Princess Peache’s castle, jumping into picture frames to open 3D worlds, varying from water worlds, desert worlds, snow worlds etc. within the painting. Within these worlds you must find stars that open more parts of the castle. As you progress through the game, you face off with Bowser 2 times before a final battle takes place on a floating island.
In the worlds, you can complete different types of quests from performing tasks for non-playable characters (like the loveable peaceful pink bombs) to racing, collecting, taking on bosses and the list goes on.
The Final Verdict:
Even 18 years after being a launch title for the Nintendo 64, Super Mario 64 remains a Shigeru Miyamoto masterpiece. Unfortunately the game is no longer in stock but with numerous ROMs availabile online, I’d advise that if you have a spare couple of hours, download this game; you will not be disappointed.
