Little big plumber
Though it’s still in early form, Mario Maker is extremely polished. It’s no dry editor, either: everything you try elicits a response, whether it’s shaking characters to change them into something else or wings flying away if not tethered to an enemy. If you try to place a Koopa in the ground, they’ll disappear in a puff of smoke, and if you leave Mario in midair near a platform, the game will temporarily extend that surface to ensure he doesn’t fall when you start to play. There’s a sense that Nintendo has built a playpen with the softest of walls, allowing you to hurl yourself at them without reservation.
