About Super Mario 64 in brief
Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform game for the Nintendo 64. It is the first in the Super Mario series to feature 3D gameplay. As Mario, the player explores Princess Peach’s castle and must rescue her from Bowser. The game is considered one of the greatest video games of all time. It was remade as Super Mario 64 DS in 2004, and it has been ported to other Nintendo consoles. The player can make Mario walk, run, jump, crouch, crawl, swim, climb, kick, or punch using the game controller’s analog stick and buttons. The Wing Cap allows Mario to fly; the Metal Cap makes him immune to most damage, allows him to withstand wind, walk underwater, and be unaffected by noxious gases. There are three special cap power-ups that appear in certain areas on many stages. When the player has the Wing Cap equipped, cannons can be used to reach high altitudes or fly across most levels quickly. When Mario has the Vanish Cap, he can walk through some obstacles such as wire mesh, as well as granting invulnerability to some forms of damage. After entering a cannon, Mario can be shot out to reach distant places. There is a multiplayer mode featuring Mario’s brother Luigi, which was cut, and rumors spread of his inclusion as a hidden character. It left a lasting impression on the field of 3D game design, featuring a dynamic camera system and 360-degree analog control. Reviewers praised its ambition, visuals, gameplay, and music, although they criticized its unreliable camera system.
More than eleven million copies of the game were sold by 2003. It has been cited as an influence by numerous developers as a source of inspiration for 2D side-scrolling platformers, including Super Mario Bros. and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo 4S and Nintendo 3G. The video game was released in Japan on June 23, 1996, and later in North America, Europe, and Australia. Along with Pilotwings 64, Super Mario64 wasone of the launch games for theNintendo 64. It was the first game to receive a perfect score from Edge magazine, and was the Nintendo64’s bestseller, with more than 11 million copies sold by the end of 2003. The player is free to wander in all directions and discover the environment without time limits. As more stars are collected, more areas of the castle hub world become accessible, and there are many hidden mini-courses and other secrets, most containing extra stars required for the full completion of thegame. The world is composed primarily of true 3D polygons as opposed to only two-dimensional sprites. Scattered throughout the castle are entrances to secret paintings, entrances to walls, a basement, a moat and a courtyard, a courtyard and a secret entrance to the castle’s secret entrance. The players can experiment with camera and movement, which the player can use to solve puzzles, and an ability to pick up and carry certain items.
