|Mario the Speedster|
Mario the Speedster is a game in the Mario Series. It was published by Nintendo.
Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach, and plans to take over the world with a mind control device that will go off in one day. Since he is on the other side of the world, the Mushroom Kingdom inhabitants couldn't reach him in time. Professor E. Gadd gives Mario a speed potion that temporarily increases his speed to the speed of sound. Mario then uses this to get to the other side of the world in time to stop Bowser. He has 8 countries (instead of worlds) to beat, and at the end of each are friends who give Mario another potion to keep him fast.
- Professor E. Gadd
- Princess Peach
- All people at ends of countries (minus Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi)
The only beta content was that there were originally power ups in the game, but the final product did not have them.
Similar to Sonic the Hedgehog, the gameplay is very fast, opposed to the slower pace Mario games usually have.
People adored this game. They believed Mario's speed was the high point of this game. They did, however, ask only for this speed in future Mario the Speedster games, as the other games should follow Mario's usual style.
