Forums - Nintendo Discussion - My Super Mario Maker 2 level sharing thread

Tagged games:

I wasn't sure if there was a Super Mario Maker 2 level sharing thread or not.  I didn't see one after sifting through about a dozen pages of the search topics, although I wouldn't be surprised if there was one somewhere from back when the game released last June.  In any event, I have spent an inordinate amount of time playing the game since picking it up when it came out (although I didn't get heavily pre-occupied with crafting my own levels until September).  My Switch Activity list confirms that I have spent over 285 hours (*at time this was originally posted*) creating levels and playing those of others in addition to the Story Mode and Ninji Speedruns.  Having created 19 levels (*at time this was originally posted*), 2 of which received a surprising (for me) amount of plays, I thought I'd share my creations with the VGChartz community that I have been a part of for several years. 

I hope that some of you will who have and play Super Mario Maker 2 will take the time to check out one or more of my levels.  If so, feel free to post here your impressions, and share some of your creations as well.  I'd be more than happy to give them a playthrough in return.

Level Code:  RYD-HPW-CNF

Description:  Bowser has sent a whole army of Goombas to invade and conquer Yoshi's Island.  There is a huge cliff blocking the way to the bay that leads to Yoshi's Island, but the Goombas have stacked into a massive Goomba Tower to overcome this obstacle.  Use the Goomba Tower to ascend the cliff and defeat the remaining Goombas either by Thwomping them or eliminating the drawbridge from out from under them.  Then, make your way across Yoshi's Island to the end of the level.  This is designed as a speed run, so spending time exploring Yoshi's Island is completely optional.

Kung Fu Master Returns

Course ID: 4FK-CH8-8F

Description: My 20th course creation.  It's been getting a lot of plays and likes since uploading it.  It's a remaster of my earlier Kung Fu Returns course.  I always felt Kung Fu Returns was a bit drab looking, each level was overly stretched out to fit maximum horizontal course length, and floors 1-4 were so tightly compact to fit together in the sub-world that multiple floors could be seen on screen simultaneously.  This had the added unintended consequence of enemies being able to interact with floors they were not meant to (Sledge Bro being able to fling hammers down from Floor 2 into Floor 1, and also being able to stun Mario without being on the same floor as him; the Bloopers from Floor 4 being able to descend down into Floor 3).  I cleaned up with this version by using the more colorful desert background and semisolids.  Also, I caught the horizontal length in half to fit Floors 1 & 2 vertically, and Floors 3 & 4 vertically side by side instead of all 4 squashed together vertically.  This makes each floor less of a drag, keeps only 1 floor on screen at a time, and prevents enemies from interacting with other floors.  I'm very pleased with how this remaster turned out.

Description: This was my fastest creation of a "Deluxe" update to one of my previous levels.

This Deluxe version now incorporates checkpoints, entry points into "Sub-Space" for collecting coins and SMB2 Mushroom Power-ups, Dry Bones at all the "vegetable" spots, Goombas as Red Shyguys and Goombrats as Pink Shyguys, the complete vine climb to the Birdo Boss Battle, and an upgraded Boss Battle with pipes spawning Dry Bones to throw at Birdo (Wendy) and SMB2 Mushroom Power-ups to maintain the ability to pick-up and throw the projectiles for a more authentic Birdo Boss Battle.

Your Smurf must still leave Smurf Village and travel through a forest and cave to reach Gargamel's Castle to rescue her, but this time there are less difficult jumps, no bats, and no spiders.  Two checkpoints have been added.  I also added springs before each jump.  But you only need to use the springs if you intend to collect the Red Coins which are necessary only for the completely optional "True Ending".

Pac-Man Arcade Deluxe

Course ID: C0S-QXV-F0H

Description:  This is a recreation of my previous Pac-Man Arcade course.  After the Version 3.0 update added the Frog Suit and other power-up items to the game, I noticed that some creators were using this in combination with the underwater theme for their Pac-Man themed courses. (Prior to the update, I had seen one creator use vines for easier upward mobility, and other creators crafting smaller mazes.)  It makes the maze so much easier to navigate and feels more like Pac-Man, so I decided to give my Pac-Man Arcade course the Deluxe update treatment as well.  I added a new Title Screen, through in some bezel artwork over the top and down the right side of the maze, and an end screen art of Pac-Man with Ms. Pac-Man.  The rest of the course design remains true to the arcade in terms of maze layout, 240 pellets, 4 power pellets, 4 ghosts, and 1-Ups serving as the Fruit.  I first saw the Underwater/Frog Suit combo used as a mechanic for a Pac-Man level in a course created by Jaky20.  While I was working on updating my course, I saw the same combination used by milly! .  Accordingly, I credited both creators in the description of my course for the inspiration.  They both incorporated Pac-Man music into their courses, which is an extremely nice touch.  I'm still studying how to create music in Super Mario Maker 2, so that is a step beyond where my current creation skills are at for the time being.  I highly recommend both creators if you want to check out their courses.  Jaky20 's Pac-Man course ID is: K4D-GW2-YRF & milly! 's Pac-Man course ID is:  55L-HM5-V1H

Up, Over, or Under (5000MP Party)

Course ID: VY9-PL7-WRG

Description:  Celebrating crossing the 500 Likes and 5000 Maker Points plateau by re-uploading the 1st course that I ever made in Super Mario Maker on Wii U.  This is a very short course featuring 3 different paths to the flagpole.  You have a choice of going Up, Over, or Under as the course name implies.  The first jump can be tricky for those not used to bouncing of enemies to extend jumps, and one of the paths is trolly.  Since this was my first ever level, I was experimenting.  You will notice a free Key at the Start.  You can take this to the end of the course and enter the "Hall of Fame" room where I personally thank 16 different Mario Maker Creators and players for their support of my courses.  Maybe you are featured here?

Greatest Hits:  The 700 Series

Course ID: 8VK-75B-9GG

Description:  Celebrating 2 Courses that achieved the milestone of having been played by over 700 different people.  Greatest Hits:  The 700 Series combines Mario Plays NES Games with Mario Maker Kart Quadruple Dash into a single course.  Mario Plays NES Games maintains the core of Mario going home to play a level from "Mario Bros.", "Donkey Kong Jr.", and "Super Mario Bros.".  But, the theme has been upgraded from 8 bit to 3D in order to combine with the Super Mario 3D World theme of Mario Maker Kart Quadruple Dash.  In addition to this upgrade, the first screen level of Donkey Kong Jr. has been swapped out for a rendition of the 2nd screen with the spring and moving platforms.  This was mainly due to the unavailability of vines in the 3D World theme, which the first screen of Donkey Kong Jr heavily utilizes.  Most of the vines in this rendition of screen 2 have been represented by Twisters.  After finishing the three levels of Mario Plays NES Games, the player is transported to the back of Mario's house to obtain a Koopa Car and then enter the final level, Mario Maker Kart Quadruple Dash.  This version has been completely reinvented, but stays true to the spirit of the original and can still be played in multiplayer.  

*This course was taken down to remove an exploit that allowed the player to pass through the roof of Mario's house and transport directly to the Flagpole without actually playing any of the course.  Course ID and Stats have been updated to the reuploaded version.

Ground Control to Major Tom 6000

Course ID: X8R-9PX-0WG

Description:  Celebrating reaching the milestones of 800+ Likes and 6000+ Maker Points.  Course starts with Mario transported by vehicle to the launchpad of a rocket ship.  An elevator raises Mario up to the cockpit.  After entering the rocket, he is blasted off into the sky.  Once in the sky (sub world), Mario is bounced from cloud to cloud, traversing normally impossible to jump distances using a mechanic I saw in another creator's course.  I duplicated the technique all the way to the top of the sub world, and then Mario returns to a hero's welcome back at the launch site.  Full credit to the creator Bradilay, who designed the course that I borrowed the technique from.  To play it in Bradilay's course: super high jump, go to 99G-2XB-72H .

Great Hall of Bowser 30 sec SR

Course ID: BTD-R4N-T1H

Description:  My first attempt at a speedrun course.  Revisit "The Great Hall of Bowser" which was previously explored in another course.  The layout is not the same, but the aesthetic of that courses' inspiration is present.  So, the speedrun can be considered to take place in another area of Bowser's fortress near "The Great Hall".  There are 30 seconds on the timer, and the timer itself is not that tight.  The course opens with 2 P-Switch jumps, followed by falling platforms, swinging claws, Koopa assisted jumps, a row of Thwomps, a parakoopa assisted jump, a spring, and finishes with a required POW Block hit, and some On/Off Switch platforms.

Around the Network

Some folks over at Atari Age had requested some screenshots of Downland after I posted in the Tandy Computer forum that I had recreated the game as a course in Super Mario Maker 2.  Figured I'd share some of the pics here as well.  The pics of Chamber 1 and Chamber 2 are two vertical screens each (upper and lower).  I edited them together to show the full chamber in each pic.  The course consists of the Title Screen and 10 Chambers recreated from the original game, and a final Chamber containing the Flagpole Exit.  Let me know if you would like to see pics of the other 8 Chambers and I will add them.  Also, let me know if interested in seeing screenshots from the original game for comparison.

Downland (TRS-80 CoCo2)
Course ID: YDQ-723-X5G
Description: This is a recreation of the game "Downland" that was published for the TRS-80 Color Computer in 1983. I stretched each chamber to fill 2 vertical screens, so that Mario's jump mechanic wouldn't make the game too easy.

I plan to periodically add screenshots for the other course creations listed in the OP.  Let me know if there are any courses listed that you would like to see screenshots of first.
