Mario & Wario

Hotel Mario

On the compact disc-interactive console by Philips, is the obscure puzzle-action game where Mario must take the elevator between the several floors of a hotel to shut every door to clear the level. Like in Wrecking Crew, the path Mario takes is critical so that he does not walk into enemies. Some enemies open doors on each floor and will end the game if every door in the stage is opened. Each hotel ends in a boss battle with one of the Koopas from Super Mario Bros. 3 until Bowser at the end.

Wrecking Crew series

One of the early, pre-Super Mario Bros. Famicom games, Wrecking Crew combined action with puzzle. As Mario, players have to chip away all of the stone walls on each tower, avoiding enemies and being sure not to get trapped. In 1998 a pseudo-sequel was created, putting Wrecking Crew into a more generic block puzzle format.

Cancelled Mario games

For one reason or another, the following Super Mario games were announced but never commercially released.

Super Mario's Wacky Worlds

Super Mario 64 2

Super Mario 128

  • Developer: Nintendo EAD
  • System: Nintendo GameCube/Wii
  • Like Super Mario 64 2 before it, Super Mario 128 has been long-awaited and will almost definitely never be released. However, experiments of the game have reportedly led to the development of the Wii Remote and has inspired the development of the Mario game for the Wii console (similar to the experiments with Super Mario FX leading to the development of the Nintendo 64 controller and Super Mario 64). However, during his keynote speech at the Game Developers Conference 2007, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto revealed what eventually happened to Super Mario 128. "What happened to Mario 128?" said Miyamoto at the end of his keynote, "most of you already played it...," then the screen showed that Mario 128 equated to Pikmin.

Platform(s) Philips CD-i

Genre(s) Adventure

Mode(s) Unknown

Super Mario's Wacky Worlds is a cancelled video game planned for the Philips CD-i, and was in development by NovaLogic.

Gameplay

The game attempted to duplicate the gameplay of Super Mario World for the SNES. Though the game sprites are based on Super Mario World, the level design is based on Earth locations rather than the Mushroom Kingdom or Mushroom World.

Some levels were based on real-life locations such as Greece, Egypt, and Aztec but many such as Pipeworks and Land 'n' Plaid are original areas.

Limitations

Due to the limitations of the CD-i, several features could not be included in the game, such as large numbers of sprites on the screen, Mode 7, and many visual effects. The nature of the pointing device controller provides difficult controls for Mario, as the game has the default controls of running and jumping.

Super Mario's Wacky Worlds, or SMWW, was intended to be a sequel to Nintendo's beloved Mario platformer, Super Mario World. Developed by Novalgic, the game was to be released on the ill-fated Philips CD-i platform, but never saw release.

Begining developement in early 1992 the project continued until atleast March 3, 1993, the date when the the final known prototype version of the game was burned to CD. Unlike Hotel Mario, the CD-i's other Mario game, Super Mario's Wacky Worlds was to remain faithful to the gameplay mechanics found in previous Mario platformers.
