The title screen.

Hi guys! It's SKmarioman. This month is October so it can only mean one thing...


But I talked about that last month, so this month I'm going to talk about a Halloween-themed Mario flash game, Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble 2: Ghost Island by Kenney.

Super Mario Bros. Star Scramble 2: Ghost Island

Normal gameplay.

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:

  1. It is now possible to jump with the up arrow key. However, you still need to use the space bar to jump higher on Springboards.
  2. The map screen was replaced with a screen with selections to levels, which are locked until the level before it is completed.

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.

The final boss fight.

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!
