Have an idea for a theme? Suggest it here!
You know, for a character who started from just running left to right on a 2D plane, Mario has diverted to a ridiculous amount of genres that range from sports, kart racing, space exploring, and dance off-ing. Most excitingly of all, Mario has jumped to the third dimension. Alas, akin to New Coke, people are always nostalgic for the original, so Nintendo has recently been releasing the "New Super Mario Bros." games for people to play the way Mario was originally intended.
Other than vast graphical improvements and a gimmick here and there, not that much has changed. One thing that has changed, however, is the abundance of characters; countless enemies/allies/frenemies have been introduced in the 2D Mario games since 2006 alone. They've gradually become staples, so why not check them out?
Theme: New Super Mario Bros.
Level 1: Easy
- In one way, this character is very similar to Bowser Jr.
- He'll steal stuff from Toad, but he'll actually help Luigi on his adventure.
- Some say he looks like Ravio from the Zelda games.
Level 2: Normal
- This character can't exactly fly, but it's great at gliding.
- They sometimes physically hold a specific power-up that Mario can steal. This power-up will transform Mario into something very similar to this enemy!
- It has large incisor teeth.
Level 3: Hard
- These basic enemies represent persimmons or pumpkins.
- Unlike a similar enemy, these enemies are smart enough to not walk off a cliff (that's not saying much, but still).
- They're quite bratty, if you know what I mean.
Bonus: Who's the Boss?
- He's covered in spikes, but you have to jump on its head to defeat it.
- A Ground-Pound deals double damage.
- If you beat him while in mini-form, you can access another world besides the next.
Easy: Nabbit! |
Well, how did you do? Regardless, thank you for playing Guess Who, and please check back next month more questions!
Welcome to Quiz, a place where I... quiz you, on Mario stuff. Now, due to the recent influx of the Mario sports games onto the Virtual Console, I have decided to base this quiz off of those sporting titles, excluding the Mario Kart series. Happy guessing!
- What is the latest game in the Mario Tennis series?
- On what console was the last Mario Golf game released on?
- Which Mario Baseball game was never released in Europe?
- What other video games series does Mario Hoops 3-3 crossover with?
- Who were the only characters from Super Mario Strikers not to appear in Mario Strikers Charged?
- How many Yoshis were available through QR codes in Mario Tennis Open?
- What creatures may pop out of the flowerbeds in Peach's Castle Grounds if a golf ball is struck into them?
- What game has Mario characters as well as real life basketball players?
- What Mario Tennis game has Pam as a playable character?
United we stand! Divided we fall! At least that's the buzz that's been going around lately. With Captain America: Civil War, our fans have been going crazy to see their favorite heroes clash against each other. One question that has been going around to people is to choose a side between Team Cap or Team Iron Man. Well, this month, I decided to something a little different. I decided to give you guys both, so you get to do a maze on Captain America and Iron Man.
How to play:
- Copy the image in an art program (such as Paint, Photoshop, paint.net, etc.)
- Click the line tool and adjust the size as needed
- Use the line tool to get from arrow to arrow
- Zoom in and out as needed
The large, tie-wearing ape first appeared along side Mario in the arcades, and has since spawned his own series, often alongside his buddy, Diddy Kong. I've got two puzzles prepared for the series, and I hope you enjoy it!
How to play:
- Any program with a fill tool works for this; just copy and paste the pictures onto the program and follow these steps.
- Each number on a row or column represents a line of filled in squares on that row or column.
- There must be at least one blank square in-between each line of filled in squares.
- Do it right and you can create a picture!

This Kong has... a funny face!
Join me next time, where I actually create puzzles for our website's namesake; Mario!
