Super Mario Ball (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

Roll up, roll up! See Mario in his most unique guise ever, as a pinball!

In Super Mario Ball, a visit to a fairground sees Princess Peach turned into a ball and kidnapped by Bowser, so the perky plumber clambers into a cannon and shoots after her. Ricochet around the themed levels, consisting of deviously designed pinball tables, and defeat enemies to collect coins and stars. Rack up enough stars to unlock doors to new areas — but you won’t be able to progress until you defeat each boss. So what are you waiting for? Roll to it!

I have heard that this is the all-time worst Nintendo-published Mario game out there.

Yeah this one's not too great. A standard pinball game with a Mario theme would've been so much better.

To be honest, I enjoyed this game.

What I didn't enjoy was the fact that your only saved file was ALWAYS suspend data, never a permanent file.

I remember the physics not being the best, but it was definitely fun at the time to play.
