We love the creativity that has already been inspired by this game and of course the children love being in control of their own destiny. below is the beginning of a course which our eldest has created:
An added twist is that you can save all your courses and upload them so that others on the web can try them out too. They can be given ratings so you can play the most popular, or just any random new course, which in turn could give you new ideas.
There is also the Mario 10 Challenge, which gives you 10 lives to play on pre-loaded courses, but the real highlight of this game is of course the ability to create your own course.
Amiibos can also be used for extra gameplay (but are not vital). Super Mario Maker has been such a huge hit in our house that even the cat wants to join in... it's available now, in a variety of formats from simple download via the Nintendo estore to those packs and bundles including Amiibos or the main Wii U consoles. Happy creating!
