Hi guys! It's SKmarioman. This month is October so it can only mean one thing...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble 2: Ghost Island
First I'll go over the controls.
Left/Right Arrow Keys: Walk Left/Right.
SPACE/Z/Up Arrow Key: Jump.
Left Click: Select Level.
The game is a Halloween version of Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble 2, which is a sequel to Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble. This game is built on the same engine as Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble 2 with a few differences apart from level design and looks:
There are ten levels to complete, filled with Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Boos, Buzzy Beetles and Spike Tops. The aim of each level is to collect all of the Shine Sprites and enter the door. After completing all of the levels, the boss level is opened up: A fight against Big Boo.
There is no way to hurt Big Boo. Instead, in order to beat him, you have to run around the stage and hit all of the Skull Switches. After doing this, Big Boo then explodes. After beating the final boss, you get this message:
"Thanks to your heroic actions, Ghost Island is free from ghosts, for now..."
The credits then roll and then goes back to the title screen.
And that's about it for this month. See you next time and have a spooky Halloween!
