Super Mario 3D Land is the first installment of the plumber’s adventure series on 3DS. The game is a three dimensional platformer using solutions proved to work well in all the previous games like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 64. It was created by the same team that took care of Super Mario Galaxy with Shigeru Miyamoto, the famous father of Mario, overlooking the process of production. The player travels through three dimensional, linear levels which are very similar to those from Mario’s previous two dimensional adventures. Some of them are even seen from the side as if it were still New Super Mario Bros. Meticulously construed levels are full of interesting traps and simple logical puzzles. In the meantime, the player has to fight various enemies, among whom are many bosses.
There are also many fun items and achievements to find, like coins and power ups extremely typical for this series. In Super Mario 3D Land all the classic items are back: the mushrooms that make you bigger, invincibility starts and flowers that let you shoot fire balls. Mario can also wear different costumes that let him use new fun abilities, for example the Tanooki costume which lets him fly.
