I just picked mine up! I'll be starting after lunch!

I guess it'll be relevant to post your high-coin scores perhaps...

Looking forward to playing with you all!

Also interested to see if anyone's playing on an XL. I might see if I can stop at Gamestop to try one out and see how it feels. Just to do a little bit of window shopping.

Just got done with my system transfer on my xl. Putting this game in now..

Btw a did a quick Minish cap check on the screen, holy shit the game looks fantastic on these screens.

@PogueSquadron I'm on a Blue XL, I'll let you know how this game holds up.

I played the first level. The game looks fantastic on the xl, but I can't wait to try OoT. The coin aspect changers the way I play Mario. I now take my time and collect all the coins.

@Scrawnton

Same here on how it changes the way you play. I'm halfway through world 2 and find myself crawling through some levels collecting the coins. Almost ran out of time a few times as well. So far I'm enjoying it a lot.

I'm loving this game so far. There's a huge incentive to be efficient with coin collecting and it's a lot of fun. It's always a surprise where you'll find massive coin payouts or not.

A few levels in, and I'm loving this game. The music is nice but not new. A shame, but ah well.

My left finger got sprained? yesterday while doing something. I'm not entirely sure what happened but it hurts to play this game right now. And the d-pad is too low and makes my thumb hurt as well, argh! The game is fun, just feels a little too familiar. I hope the DLC mixes things up later down the line.

Is there any incentive to get the coins besides the million coin challenge? And the fun of maybe finding different ways to play? I wasn't sure if you could use the coins to buy items or anything.

DrFinkelstein's Stats

Level - Coins High Score - Star Coins Found
W1-1 - 380 - 3
W1-2 - 166 - 3
W1-3 - 302 - 3
W1-M - 179 - 2
W1-4 - 414 - 2

@PogueSquadron
Not sure on the purchasing thing. My guess is no. But the game is designed to not need you to buy items or lives.

I just beat world one. I got every star coin except the third one in W1-A... I can't find it ANYWHERE and I played the level six times.... Any help?
Posted: 08/19/12, 20:16:33
@Scrawnton

I just finished my second trip through and I didn't see that third one either. If I stumble across it I'll hint you up.
Posted: 08/19/12, 20:35:33
Did my first coin rush mode. I managed to gather 6688 coins, pushing my total to 13902!

@Scrawnton

Does the timer extend at the end of each level?
Posted: 08/19/12, 21:18:45
@DrFinkelstein each level has one clock extender and when you hit the check point you get 100 seconds. But you always start the level with 60 seconds, I believe. It resets every level.

Just beat the first world. Kind of standard Mario stuff... coins don't really change much so far anyway.
Posted: 08/19/12, 21:40:19
My only disappointment with the game so far is the world design, I have a feeling this game is just going to copy the world design and progression from the DS version... I at least hope they change up the world when DLC is released...
Posted: 08/19/12, 21:50:45
DLC is going to be coin rush only, are they part of the world map?
Posted: 08/19/12, 23:28:40
I played a good bit of it, and I'm in World 3 now. I'm really digging the game. I actually skipped the first world and second world by finding a secret exit and warp canon that took me to a Secret World, and then headed straight to Wendy O. Koopa's water-filled World 3. (kind of a throwback to Super Mario Bros. 3... I like!)

Anyway, game is great and I'm glad I downloaded it. I was also impressed by the download speed... the game only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. eShop is pretty efficient!

@GameDadGrant

Yep, I just found that same secret exit! . I like the fact that the warp cannon doesn't just shoot you to the next area, but rather has you flying through the sky collecting coins along the way. It's a nice touch.
Posted: 08/20/12, 01:05:19
I think I give up on trying to find the last stupid star coin in the first dungeon stage

EDIT: I did find the secret exit that took me to the first ? World Grand mentioned, so at least there's that, heh.

Pretty much what I was expecting so far... I'm enjoying myself. Not sure what else to say, really. It's New Super Mario Bros with a lot of coin collecting.
