World 1: Mushroom Ville:

One of the safest places in Mushroom Kingdom. Sadly, Bowser ruined it with several traps, statues and a castle and a tower that Mario and his friends need to pass.

World 2A: Acorn Plains

The forest around Mushroom Kingdom. Many animals like squirrels and bunnys live here in peace. At least, until Bowser came here. He convinced the animals to block our heroes path, and build challenges for them.

World 2B: Underground

Mario can also go under the forest by following a secret path, but Bowser sadly also thought about that and also placed traps and challenges over there.

World 3: Dry Dry Desert

Dry Dry Desert is the hottest, dryest place in Mushroom Kingdom, but luckily, you can normally get out of there fast, but as always, Bowser ruined it.

World 4A: Wild Jungle

The jungle, a wild, rainy, but interesting place. Now our heroes just have to pass Bowser's challenges to pick something up, because it may be the last time they'll see this jungle, in case they're too late...

World 4B: Pipe Plaza

There's also another way to pass this part of our journey, through the Pipe Plaza. A calm place with pipes just... everywhere. But sadly, Bowser put things in the pipes too, to make it extra hard to pass.

World 5: Incredible Island

A wonderful, beautiful beach and tropical temperatures, an awesome trip right? In case Bowser did not but traps and challenges there! 

World 6A: Winter Wonderland

A paradise full of snow and ice. Slippery, but interesting. But Bowser has to ruin it! Just pass, nothing to learn when you're busy with saving the world...

World 6B: Boo Lake

If you don't want to see a beautiful place ruined, just watch a horrible place getting even worse! Spooky and a little bit creepy becomes an absolute nightmare! One advantage, if you're not afraid, this world is a lot easier than 6A.

World 7: Rock Rock Mountain

If you're afraid of heights or not, in both cases you have to climb the Rock Rock Mountain... And let's make it even harder by putting traps on it! Thank you very much, Bowser!

World 8A: Cloud Cake

The beautiful bunch of clouds above Mushroom Kingdom... is now totally RUINED! Thanks to Bowser and his family...

World 8B: Fantasy Land

The other sky above Mushroom Kingdom is just your own fantasy. JUST DON'T THINK ABOUT YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE! Oh, I shouldn't have said that... (PS: These are actually some of the best Mario Maker levels chosen to be in this game by Nintendo)

World 9: Sparkling Space

You're very close to Planet Bowser! Just one part left.... an extremely long part... an extremely long, very hard part left... just go and see this beautiful space, ruined, ughhhh....

World 10: Planet Bowser

Finally, you're on Planet Bowser! You just have to pass 10 more lava themed levels and then defeat him, and his big family... Okay I'll stop seeing this as easy... IT'S REALLY HARD GUYS.

World 11: Star World

As always, when Mario and his friends beat Bowser, they can enter an extra world, with deleted levels that didn't made it to the game, and some extremely hard and challenging extra levels. You won't lose lives in this world, but you do lose your power-ups when you die.

Differences to other games

  • Mario can now walk on the ceiling when activated an anti-gravity button.
  • You're not longer able to wall jump on spikes.
  • Characters now are different. For example, Mario & Luigi can now run faster than Toad, Peach, Daisy & Mii, but Toad can jump higher because he is smaller.
