Lesser but Charming

Reviewed By: Nintendo 64 Wizard on 08 Jun 2021

While not as good as Super Mario 64 modding’s greatest hits, such as Star Road or Last Impact, this is still one of the best and most iconic mods out there that every fan of the game should play at least once. It’s quite interesting to see what a creative mind can push Super Mario 64 to without using any custom code. Such as making a mission require use of both the metal and wing cap, or using a cannon as an unlockable checkpoint in a Bowser level.

One negative point about this mod is its lack of custom music, where only a few songs are modded and most come from the vanilla game. Even one of the custom songs is just Bob-Omb Battle Field with different instruments. It just makes the game feel less fresh than it could’ve.

Another problem is some of the stars are just too difficult. And this is coming from someone who 100%s Last Impact without breaking a sweat. I understand that the stars in the “Sphere” levels are supposed to be ridiculously difficult, so I won’t criticize those. But even other random stars are that ridiculously difficult, such as the 100 coin star in Sunny Beach, where there are exactly 100 coins in the entire level, and some of them require kaizo skill, or ridiculously tedious effort to obtain.

Also, the entrance to the Frozen Slide secret level REALLY should have been somewhere else. Backtracking to that thing every time you die is terrible game design.

8/10 Stars - An overall fun and unique experience.

Version 1.4 Recommended - Yes
