UPDATE: After playing through the first few worlds of Super Mario Maker World myself, I’d like to personally vouch for its quality. Not only are these just about the best uploaded levels I have played so far, but played in succession, they absolutely feel like a legitimate ’90s Mario game. I’m hooked, and look forward to seeing Super Mario Maker World through to the end!
It was bound to happen. Reddit user ThirdStrongestBunny has created an entire Mario game’s worth of levels in Super Mario Maker — 60 to be exact. And though the game currently lacks a way to formally present them, this clever creator has gone to great lengths to organize and share his game within a game.
The collection of levels follows the traditional seven world setup, each with a theme, clever name, bonus stage and boss stage(s). He’s even thrown in some presumably ultra-hard, optional endgame content with his own Star Road and Special Worlds. In typical Mario fashion, ThirdStrongestBunny promises an appropriate difficulty curve, and has even cut a trailer to show off his homage to Super Mario World.
The best part is that these look like real, playable levels in the true spirit of Mario. Nintendo has given us an amazing tool to create levels, and with a few tweaks, players could(and would) be creating entire games. The full list of levels from Super Mario Maker World, complete with Course IDs, can be found here.
