Super Mario Jailbreak is a video game by Nintendo. It was released in Japan on December 19, 2008, and will be released in North America on May 27, 2009, and Europe and Australia on June 7,2009. It is a platformer and stealth game for Wii. It will be published by Nintendo and developed by ShadowWorks.
The game takes place in the Mush-Mush Republic, a neighboring country to the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario has been thrown in jail while Bowser has come back to life as Giga Bowser and is destroying the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario needs to break out of jail and save the day!
During an escape sequence, Mario will need to run away from guards, mobs, police, etc. These are side-scrolling platform sequences where the screen slowly and automatically moves to the right to escape. If you get stuck, you will be "caught" and have to start over with 1 less life
Breakouts are stealth sequences where Mario will need to sneak out of somewhere or into somewhere. These are mostly 3-D, with a few 2-D ones. You will have to slowly sneak around, and running into things will raise a noise meter, which lowers over time. It can also alert others to your position. If you are discovered, you start over.

Mario Jailbreak recieved average to good reviews from critics. It was mainly criticized for illegal story, short length, and being 2-D on the Wii. However, it was applauded for having manyt new power-ups and fresh level design. The unbalanced difficulty was also criticized, for having many easy levels and a few extremely difficult ones unevenly scattered thorugh it. IGN said "...overall, it's an alright game, but it's extremely underwhelming and suffers from many easily-solved problems..."
