This game is simple, but addictive. Usually games like that don't suck. Which doesn't change in this situation.

The Bowser and Luigi sprites are by Sniper the Yoshi / Sniper. The Mario sprites are by Starpower.

They're both posted in the Yoshi's Island project on Pixeltendo. (Which you'll have to register to view)

Go down to the "How To Play" menu and press Shift.

From there, it'll tell you what to do to play it.

Consider yourself lucky, then. Originally, the star bar and having a saving grace from the tidal wave wasn't planned. After contemplative programming thought, I decided to add it in and see if it works. Glad it works for you!

And good job on beating the top high score!

There are no obstacles, cheep-cheeps, or arrows when using starpower when playing this game. All that's left is Luigi, the background, and the tidal wave.

Yes, that's kinda the point. It's so you don't focus on those and more on what you're supposed to be doing.

No...why would any Mario game be bloody? I think some people need to go play some titles outside of the Mario series to fill your thirst for blood.

We can tell you that it isn't. Although if you really wanted to know, you could just play the game yourself.

However, if you're asking for the sake of personal safety in viewing violent matter, then be aware that any Mario game that has blood will either have a warning in the description, or will be previewed as the still image preview.

How about this way
-No Cheep-cheeps
-No obstacles
-No arrows when using starpower
-In fact, I think the starpower isn't working!

I have played this for the umpteenth time, and I am unable to reproduce this error. More detail would be required to give any feedback.

Random names. We don't have enough time/resources in mini-game competitions to implement online scoring.

Ah, well it could be my computer. But I haven't heard of anybody else with this problem. When I play, the tidal wave is chasing me, and it goes normally like that. When I use starpower, the light flashes, but there are no arrows, and I die. Also, I could be not understanding, but I have tried many ways. It just keeps playing like that.

Yeah that sounds like your computer or a glitch. We haven't had it happen, but it's not supposed to happen.

This is starting to sound like a CPU processor error to me. Could you please post your CPU specs for me?

It's not really strange at all. Goto Start - Run - dxdiag.exe

Then, click "Save All Information." It will put all the info into a txt file, and you can save it somewhere. Once you do, open it up, and copy and paste just the "System Information" portion into a reply comment here.

Judging by your processor and your RAM, it might be that it's doing too much for your computer to handle. It might sound weird, but the game does slow down a little bit on my computer, and it's a 1.8 GHz computer, so it has almost double the amount of speed on the processor that yours does.


There is a possibility that the speed is slowing down so much that it's not even loading up the arrows.

Glitch killed me at 537. Meh. My star meter filled up, so I hit Ctrl. Since it centers you in the middle of the screen, and the tidal wave was so close to me, (It was almost at the other side of the screen) it shoved me back into the tidal wave, waited about 20 seconds, and killed me.

Anyone find the easter eggs?

Wait for around 45 seconds on the title screen for balloons to show up. Then, click on the balloons to pop them.

This is one of many...keep looking!!!
