Did You Know?


This is the only Nintendo game to depict the statue of Jesus Christ in the city of Rio and Luigi is seen by the statue of Jesus Christ in the photo. It's unknown how religious themes including the mention of Jesus Christ is allowed in a Mario game while other Nintendo games never allowed the name of God or Jesus Christ to be depicted in video games.

[first lines, MS-DOS version]
Narrator: Somewhere deep in the frozen expanse of the South Pole... Bowser's brand new castle looms large. Deep within, the chief Koopa hunches in his room of gloom, plugging in high-powered hairdryers. Soon he will throw the main switch, melting snowballs from Stockholm to Sacramento. Thousands of penguins will be left homeless, while well-padded Polar bears overheat. Hope is running thin down here where the ice runs thick!

Decietful, and just not fun at all
29 September 2018 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

Let me just say that I have nothing against Edutainment games. In fact, when they're done right, it's amazing, because people can learn while they're enjoying themselves, which makes the process that much better. This is one of the worst examples of an Edutainment game ever, as it leaves out one key thing. Fun. This is one of the most boring games ever made for the SNES and NES, as it has absolutely nothing that made the Mario games fun whatsoever. All you do is read and answer questions, and that's basically it, which is ironically why many people play video games, so that they can take a break from all that. So, this game is pretty much a demo of school, which is so lame and again, not fun. If there's anything I can give this game credit for are the visuals, as they sure look like something out of Super Mario World. I guess that's the only way the devs could sell this game, by luring fans of the SNES masterpiece into this boring slog. Don't let the visuals fool you. This is not a Mario game like the others. In fact, it's in a whole new genre, where reading and answering questions is perceived as a good game idea for some weird reason. Hell, at least games like Marios Teaches Typing made some sort of fun immersion, despite that game still not being that good. This is just boresville, USA, and I can't really recommend this to anyone at all. The visuals may look nice and familiar, but they have nothing to do with any of the Mario classics, making this game kind of Decietful. It's also not fun at all, so just do yourself a favor, and just stay away.
