We used to see all sorts of wonderful Game Builder Garage creations when the game first launched earlier this summer, and while that initial excitement seems to have settled down a little recently, here's a quick reminder of just how great the game creation tool can really be.

Brazilian game developer André Cardoso has been hard at work recreating several minigames from Super Mario Party inside Game Builder Garage. The games Sizzling Stakes, Bopping Spree, and Fuzzy Flight School are the chosen few, and despite Game Builder Garage's limitations, Cardoso has managed to make them look – and work – amazingly close to the real things.

A video covering all three recreations, showing both gameplay and quick recaps of how each game was made, can be found on André's Mix and Jam YouTube channel. Check it out:

If you want to play them for yourself, here are the links you need for each level:

These certainly put our creations to shame. Great work, André!
