The Mario Discovery series, also known as Mario's Early Years series in the USA, is a spinoff series consisting of five games published and developed by The Software Toolworks (Mindscape), and licensed by Nintendo. They are in the edutainment genre.
In the Mario Discovery series, each game is focused on a specific topic to educate the player on.
Mario is Missing
In Mario is Missing, Luigi must return artifacts stolen by Bowser to their correct locations. To properly return the items, the player must correctly answer questions relating to the area. The answers are given by residents.
Mario's Time Machine
Mario's Time Machine follows a very similar structure and system to that of Mario is Missing!, though it stars Mario as the usual protagonist rather than Luigi. Additionally, stolen items and objects are now returned to their respective time periods rather than actual locations.
Mario's Early Years! games
In the Mario's Early Years! games, there are several worlds that covers a different aspect of each topic. Voice lines are present to give instructions and feedback to the player.
