@Diogmites There is flying? o.o Apparently I missed something. I mean ... there is the one airplane level. But the only power-up I ever saw was super ball. Are we talking about the same game or are you talking about 2? 🤔

@Diogmites Mario Land 2 was short but 1 is less than an hour. 😅 So I played it an hour ago in one sitting. Fun but extremely easy.

@FishyS That’s short! I am currently engaged with Eschatos, and should be asleep but for its addicting gameplay. I’ll attempt to blast through Super Mario Land soon enough, perhaps tomorrow, if i find time. My congratulations still stands!

@FishyS Played it for a bit. Mario is a behemoth and those explody koopas are cute!

Glad to see Mario Land 1 finally arrive so that people will stop asking where the hell it is under every NSO update XD

In all seriousness though, this lineup's pretty alright all things considered. I like the 'early Game Boy launch window' theming all three games have going on and, regardless of their overall quality, I've always wanted to see how games like Mario Land 1 and Alleyway fared so this is perfect for the gaming historian in me.

putting For Whom The Frog Bell Tolls in the Japanese lineup is immensely cruel though XD

@FishyS Played some more SML 1 over lunch and i’m on 4-1. It hands out a lot of lives. Which is good because i think i’ve died 6 times or so. I find it not so easy lol and it will probably take me over an hour total, though not sure. Is this Daisy’s 1st appearance? I liked the shooty sub part.. that’s about it.
I don’t like riding the boulders and they keep making me do it lol

@Diogmites Yep, Daisy made her debut in this game.

@Diogmites The funny thing about the boulders is you feel like you should have to move around a lot to balance on them but if you just press no buttons at all you stay on them. 😆 They're basically just moving platforms. The game is definitely a little jank in certain ways.

Sorry you aren't having as much fun, but there are only 4 worlds so you are almost done. Plus you get another shooting part.

Also.. how can you not like super balls! This game debuted those also; one of the best power-ups.

@FishyS Did not know there were only four worlds! Thought i was halfway through as i think of classic Mario as having 8. Thanks for that.
I’ve played other Mario’s and platformers, so i know about not moving on them. I’ve always disliked that mechanic. What are the super balls? Are they the fire flowers? I just got home and wasn’t going to play again until lunch tomorrow but might as well finish it off now. I hope i have enough lives.

Diogmites

FishyS

@Diogmites Yeah, that's not a fire flower, it's a super ball flower. Fire balls don't bounce all over the place crazily like superballs do. You can do neat angled bounce shots. They're in Mario Maker 2 also.

Last boss is a little tricky. Good luck!

@FishyS Okay yeah, i have them right now. They are cool! I lose fire flowers fairly quickly after i get them as i tend to barrel through the game. I am on 4-2 and i am happy that 4-1 had no boulders and a nice music track and i’m pretty sure i saw ninjas. Edit- i have been informed they were kyonshii or pyonpii.Hopping zombies! it’s a small screen.. i’m blind lol

@FishyS Thanks! I beat the last boss. Wasn’t bad as i play a lot of shmups. I did die twice, though the first was because i set the system down to do something after defeating the cloud xD
Not a terrible game. Just needs less boulders. Thanks for the help and encouragement!

Hey all, a couple questions about N64 games on NSO:

1) On 1080 Snowboarding and Wave Race 64 does anyone know any info about why many of the maps are missing? 1080 only has 3 out of 8 maps playable and Wave Race 64 only 2 out of 9 maps, with the rest shown as blacked out/unavailable. I was really looking forward to playing these favorites 2P with the girlfriend but the limited map selections are getting a bit old.

2) I have played Mario Party 3 several times with 2 players and it's been fun. After finishing a game I went to the millennium star to choose another board, but now it is stuck in an infinite loop showing which boards are recommended and pressing A does not actually take you to select a board. Restarting, trying different/new save files, and uninstalling/reinstalling N64 has not allowed this to play again. Any thoughts?

@Tigerrr I'll start with your issue with Mario Party 3. That's weird, the game should let you pick a board and start a game... if it helps, you'd pick Battle Royal (that's the blue star in the Party Mode menu) to start games. From there, it should let you pick any board and play on it. Try that, and see if it'll let you... let us know what happens.

As for Wave Race 64, I think you'll have to play through the championship mode to unlock more courses. I've never played 1080 Snowboarding, but I'd imagine it's a similar deal in that game too.

I was just playing Super Mario Bros lost levels on NSO nes app.

Anyone remember when Nintendo said 'Remember: no one likes a troll' when smm2 came out??

My personal Top (bottom) trolls in Lost levels:

1. The 9,000 mile jump springs combined with wind, creating 'blind fall, the level'. These aren't even that hard, just inherently stupid. Almost up there with the Wonder invisibility badge (scratch that, nothing is as trolly as the invisibility badge).

2. Pick a path combined with reverse warp pipes. There are so many weird loop levels you have to explore to escape. Warp pipes which take you to previous worlds are evil but slightly humourous if you are actively searching for warps. But pipes in world 8 which take you to back several worlds?? When you are just trying to exit the level???

3. Kaizo/hidden blocks everywhere. The death mushrooms are fun, the hidden blocks less so. I admit, placing a hidden block right in the way of jumping over a hammer bro is sort of funny. Making that hidden block spit out a death shroom also is kind of overkill but still funny. But doing the same exact thing multiple times in one level? c'mon.

Not a troll, but I landed in water off one of the jank springs and somehow jumped out again onto dry land... which is definitely not supposed to happen. I tried to repeat it later, but it must have been some weird pixel perfect glitch I accidentally performed.

POTENTIALLY VERY REAL SPOILERS FOR THE NEXT NSO DROP !!

So according to a Reddit user, apparently the NSO page for Switches located in Portugal has jumped the gun on the next set of monthly NSO titles and they are....THE GAME BOY MEGA MAN GAMES!?!?!?!?!?!?
Untitled
Taking this with a grain of salt personally as this feels like a 'too good to be true' kind of announcement but holy hell I'd be over the moon if this ended up being the next set of releases.

@Fizza That spoiler didn't last long. Kind of surprised they put these on NSO rather than in yet another legacy collection, but since there is some overlap between the nes games and the gb games without being identical, maybe this makes a lot of sense — you don't have to pay more for overlapping games but you do get something new.
