Super Mario Maker has a loyal and sizeable audience that continues to stretch the creation tool to its full potential. With each update that adds doors, keys and other bits and bobs we also see increasingly clever stages, some which test our minds as well as our thumbs.
In any case, while some create ambitious individual stages over a number of days or even weeks, some construct entire games, in a manner of speaking. In bundling levels together into worlds with tangible themes, committed players are effectively creating their own Mario games.
Kosten is a user that's recently completed their game, which consist of 40 levels across 10 worlds - we've enjoyed the early levels, which clearly took quite some time to pull together. They all use the Super Mario World template, and you can see the full list of food-themed worlds on the Mario Maker subreddit.
An easy way to access all of the levels and play them in order is to bookmark the first stage, and after completing it tap the user's profile - the screen of uploaded courses will show them all in reverse order, and you can also follow Kosten so they're easier to come back to.
Projects like this are great to see, and it'd certainly be welcome if Nintendo introduced a method that allows us to group levels together into Worlds to share them as such in the game. Even without that functionality, we can still enjoy full Mario games created by the community.
Check this one out and let us know what you think.

Looks awesome, I'll check it out!
Speaking of things like that, I've been trying to make a recreation of the original New Super Mario Bros. in SMW style recently. I've completed the first world, but can't upload any more than that right now! I mean, it's nowhere near as cool as this, but still.
Hmmm, this is making me want to get Mario maker. I got no imagination to create my own levels so didn't bother to get it, but from what I have seen of levels on the internet I might have to
@GloverMist can you share a course ID? I'm interested in checking out your courses!
I want to try this. They really have to make an option for custom world maps for the eventual sequel. Would give a purpose for having coins and 1-up mushrooms in levels too, other than just in 100 Mario challenge.
@VGScrapbook Sure thing, I'm glad you're interested! World 1-1 is right here: 411E-0000-020C-7480. Feedback eould be appreciated!
It's sure gonna suck when Nintendo randomly deletes a huge chunk right out of the middle of his game.
@GloverMist I'll check out your levels too! I also recreated Super Mario 1-1...with a slight twist. Its called Alternate Reality.
I wish Nintendo allowed users to create worlds and "games" because one of the reasons I'm not really interested in Super Mario Maker this far is that it seems like a pile of random bizarre levels.
I definitely envy the people who are creative and patient enough to go above and beyond and create an entire game's worth of levels. Me, I think I will be content just playing the levels these guys make!
"it'd certainly be welcome if Nintendo introduced a method that allows us to group levels together into Worlds to share them as such in the game."
Yeah, that would be cool.
@invictus4000 Thanks a lot! I'd love to hear what you think about them! I'll check out yours, too, if you leave a course ID!
inb4 Nintendo randomly deletes half of the levels.
@ThomasBW84: There's an even easier way to bookmark them all:
At the bookmark page of the first (or any) level, click on the profile of the creator (his Mii) and then simply hit "bookmark all".
@InfernapeKing97 It's not random at all and there actually are [url=https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/04/nintendo_updates_its_guidance_on_super_mario_maker_level_deletions]guidelines[Url] for this. Nintendo certainly won't delete levels that have 300 stars and a lot of plays.
This is awesome! They really need a world posting feature. It's fun to make a 4 level world in Coursebot with a limited number of lives to see if your friends can get through it, but I wanna do that in Course World too!....I'm making an 8 level prequel to the original SMB - complete with dialogue - but there's no real way to share it. Just posted the first half, check it out! 037B-0000-0220-EF6A
@GloverMist Will do! Excited to play your courses tonight. Ill send you the ID for mine later since im at work now (thought I could find it on my profile on the Mario Maker bookmark page but I guess not).
Here is the ID for my level: D2AE-0000-01ED-C47F.
Getting on to play yours now!
@Bruuuuuuce I'll check put your levels, too!
@invictus4000 Awesome! I'll play it later!
Nintendo would never allowed World creation tools in SMM. It would definitely eat sales of the next Super Mario Bros and Super Mario World games.
I really want to buy this game, but I'm so time constrained that it will be a waste. Also, I stopped playing on my Wii U long time ago (except for firing up either Mario Kart or Sonic Transformed).
@maceng Any of those fan-made games would be better than New Super Mario Bros. 2, that's for sure.
Mario Kart and Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed are my most played Wii U games, too.
@maceng Definitely agree with you that the possibility of recreating Mario games in SMM would hurt their sales. However, I doubt that the lack of a world map option would keep people from recreating a level from a new SMB. It will definitely happen whenever Nintendo decides to do another SMB. Sure, they could always introduce some new rule they just forgot telling us about and delete any level that just resembles one from an official Mario game but honestly, I really hope Nintendo sees that possibility and shakes up the SMB formula to an extent that cannot be built in Mario Maker (e.g. anti-gravity).
He's Canadian, and his first world is "Maple Roots"?
It's as if I created a level and called it Olive Garden.
I played these for my channel, Nintendo Thumb. They were really well designed.
