Create and play the Mario levels of your dreams
The Mario experience of your dreams is about to get made. ..by you. Create and share your very own Mario levels using the Wii U GamePad controller, then play a near-infinite number of intensely creative levels from other makers around the world. What was impossible in traditional Mario games is now impossibly fun, so let your imagination run wild.
Making levels is easy. Want a Goomba to wear a Piranha Plant on its head, have a Bill Blaster fire coins, or make a giant Bob-omb fly? Then simply drag and drop elements to create pure Mario magic. Switch between 4 Super Mario Bros. game themes—from the 8-bit pixel art of the original to the world of New Super Mario Bros. U—and enjoy the action that each provides. In the mood to play other players’ creations instead? Something surprising? Silly? Intricate? Tough? You’ll find a near-limitless number of levels in the online community. Whether creating or playing, with Mario Maker, the game is your playground.
Play the Super Mario courses of your dreams
Ever wondered what it would be like to battle Bowser under the sea or a Goomba with a Piranha Plant on its head? Face off against these Mushroom Kingdom misfits and more when you play a near-infinite number of courses from fellow Super Mario makers around the world.
Find the Perfect Fit
Use custom searches to help find the courses you want. Sort by recommended course, ranking, new arrivals, top creators, and more. You can also keep up with your favorite makers by adding them to the Follow List.
Unlock Costume Mario with amiibo!
Transform into different character costumes with the new Mystery Mushroom item. Expand the roster of possible outfits by completing the 100 Mario Challenge mode or tapping compatible amiibo accessories.
Nintendo has made Super Mario games for decades—now it’s your turn!
Sketch out your level on the Wii U GamePad controller just like you were using a pen and paper. Want to try out your course without stopping the fun? Switch seamlessly between Edit and Play on the fly without missing a beat (or a ground-pound).
Drag and drop items from the palette—like enemies, obstacles, blocks, and more—to populate your course. Spend about 5 minutes creating a course, and more parts become available to use the next day. You can also transform parts using different actions.
Try switching between classic environments like ground, underground, ghost house, underwater, airship, or castle.

Mario experience of your dreams has arrived and is bursting with creativity…including yours! Play a near-limitless number of intensely creative Super Mario levels from players around the world.

And the fact that you can upload your creations for others to try and do the same for them (plus play a bunch of levels created by nintendo) is all part of the fun. You can only upload a course that you yourself have completed, so even though you may find some devilishly hard ones out there, you know they're not impossible. And it's delightful to see what people around the world come up with. You can choose visual styles of the original Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros U, and dozens of enemies and level components. Creativity and pure fun wrapped up in a nostalgic package. Must own for any self respecting Mario fan with even the smallest creative itch.
The options are great (hoping there might be future dlc to extend it). I also love being able to play other people's levels and seeing their creativity.
The only drawback is you can't seem to create your own multi player world - it would be so much fun to be able to create a game you can then play multiplayer on.
Also, I wish it wouldn't give u limits on how many enemies/etc you can put in a world!
Creating Your Own Level:
They have made a very user friendly WYSIWG (what you see is what you get) level editor for the game. It's as simply as drag, drop and test. Everything from enemies to jump platforms. Not all creation tools are available from the start, but the game unlocks them the more you create and they show you how to easily implement these different elements (new enemies, level backdrops, power ups, and Mario game style).
Playing User Created Levels:
They give you several options to play levels that others have created. You can pick from top rated levels, play Nintendo curated level sets in the traditional "get to the castle and save the princess" style set, type in level codes you found online, play levels similar to those you enjoyed, and pick trending levels among other ways. Even if you don't wish to create any levels yourself this is a great way to get some new (and unique) Mario experiences. All levels submitted have to be beaten before they can be submitted, keeping the available content beatable (though you will still find extreme ends of the difficulty spectrum available).
Just buy this game!
Now, Nintendo has given us (well, sold us, technically) the tools to do it with their blessing - on their own hardware. This is awesome.
You can now make your own Mario levels in not one, but 4 different styles. From the original Super Mario Bros. to the HD style of New Super Mario Bros. U - you can make levels spanning the 30 year history of the world's most famous plumber. And if you don't want to make your own levels, just jump online to the built-in "Course World" - and play a virtually unlimited number of user-made courses. You can even share your own levels there.
There is a lot to unlock and explore. 100+ costumes for Mario in the SMB style - new power-ups never before seen in a Mario game (I'm looking at you, Shellmets!) and more. You will not get bored. Many, many hours of game play here.
This game sold me a Wii U. I literally bought the console specifically for this game. And it was well worth it.
