I'm weak and got this since I had $15 in deluxe promotion credit just chilling anyways.
So far it's been pretty fun. I've made it through the 8/23 SMB challenges & the first 6 remix challenges, and they're steadily increasing in difficulty. Especially if you're a perfectionist like me who HAS to get the perfect score before moving onto the next one.
My one complaint is, like every other Nintendo game that has high scores, is that there should be a LEADERBOARD! Yes it's nice that I can see that one Miiverse post next to a challenge with their time, but I'd rather be able to see how I rank against everyone
Most have 10, but the 2 DK games only have 7 while Super Mario Bros. has 23.
There are 25 Remix stages that you slowly unlock while gathering stars from completing the other challenges. Though, there's one slot on the game select screen that's still empty, and seeing as the first 25 challenges are titles Remix I, I'm going to guess that slot will be Remix II.
On a perfect run, most challenges have taken about 1 or 2 minutes I'd say. Think of them like slightly extended Wario Ware games where most challenges contain 3 or 4 stages. Like one Super Mario Bros. challenge gives you task of hitting the correct block to reveal the vine. You do this for 3 stages and then the challenge is complete.
Hopefully that makes semi-sense, I'm kinda rushing through this before I head out the door, heh.
I'm getting pretty intrigued by this one, mostly because of the pedigree of the dev team for it (Retro Game Challenge and Theatrhythm are awesome!). If I get a Wii Points Card for Christmastime, I may bite on this instead of ol' Luigi U...
Welp, in any event, eShop account permitting (regretting my buying spree last week...lets do some math; I started around 26 something, bought the newest Pikmin DLC, and then the Batman Origins Prequel stuff...grrr, I have no idea..), I'll own this in 2 hours.
I like the idea of it, I'm excited at the prospect of it, and I will..relish the..playing?
I've put 4 hours into the game and have 216 stars, with only 2 games' challenges completely finished.
So far on top of what was originally given to you, I've unlocked challenges for Wrecking Crew, Ice Climbers, Zelda, Pinball, and Remix II . And I'm willing to wager there are still a few more to unlock
