A Colorful & Balanced Journey

Reviewed By: Fireorb on 08 Dec 2022

Super Mario Bros 3 was perhaps the crowning achievement of the NES library. It expanded upon the Mario universe in an unparalleled fashion adding more content than you could shake a raccoon tail at. But now, three decades later, you know all the secrets and have many of the levels memorized…What’s left to experience?

How about 8 BRAND NEW worlds never seen before?! Stunning colors stand out in every world of The Rainbow Realms while the balanced and interesting level design solidify this custom level set as one of the best for SMB3.

If I strained to say anything negative it would be that the puzzle levels were sometimes unreasonable. Needing complex and/or obscure solutions in the middle of what’s otherwise an entirely platformer-centric design stuck out and was the only remarkable lowlight.

5/5 Stars for me. Full playthrough available on YouTube @ The Fireorb Mod Museum
