If every adventure of Father Mario is eagerly awaited, it is not by chance. The series has always maintained a level of excellence while offering new concepts. And yet, each time, one can’t help but wonder if the new formula will work. No suspense, Super Mario Odyssey Mobile is indeed the bomb we were hoping for until we get the moon.
Super Mario Odyssey Mobile Storyline
Guess who got captured again! in Super Mario Odyssey Mobile As always, the victim of the millennium falls into the clutches of Bowser, who this time leaves no veil on his intentions: to marry the princess. Although Mario doesn’t go far in the intro, he will quickly set off on the trail of the spiny turtle with a most amazing companion: Cappy, a shape-changing hat that can be used as a weapon, a platform and above all a capture tool!
As you probably know if you haven’t lived in a cave in the last few months, one of the main features of Super Mario Odyssey Mobile is the ability for the player to transform into his enemies, something we’ll come back to later. The most important thing before that is to understand the general structure of the game. Aboard the Odyssey ship, you travel from country to country using the power of the Moons, which are used as fuel. The more moons you have, the more you discover new areas you can return to without reusing any moons of course.
Thus, all your progress depends on this long gathering whose interest lies in two elements: exploration and Mario’s (and the player’s) skills. Unlike most 3D (and 2D) Mario games, Super Mario Odyssey Mobile features a non-linear structure within each level. In fact, each level should be seen as a kind of fair, armoured with dozens and dozens of activities of a variety and eclecticism rarely seen before. Each wall, each nook, each footbridge can reveal one or more secrets that you will only discover if you perfectly understand all the game mechanics, whether those of Cappy or Mario. For even if his hat allows him new possibilities, especially with the transformations, the plumber proves, always with as much audacity, that one can be both potbellied and damn nimble at the same time, reaching seemingly inaccessible heights with ease, even if it is sometimes necessary to reposition the camera oneself in order to properly gauge our jumps.
In view of the variety of opportunities the game offers, it’s almost unpredetermined. The search for the moons could be described as a mix between the Korogus and the sanctuaries of Breath of the Wild. Sometimes you collect them via a ground charge on a shiny spot, but often you find a pipe or a door that sends you into a more or less difficult level, forcing you to make effective use of a specific gameplay element. Increasingly complex and ingenious platform phases, crazy races, shooting sequences, puzzle games… the cases are so varied that it would take far too long to try to describe them all. But eventually, the ideas vary so far from Super Mario Odyssey Mobile you are always amazed. Where some games have based their entire gameplay on a single idea that has been dashed to dryness, Odyssey offers us an originality every ten minutes.
Depth Of Play
Super Mario Odyssey Mobile is an ode to rewarded exploration. Although you can follow simulated routes, allowing you to find enough moons to finish the game without wandering around too much, it’s by snooping left and right that you discover the full depth of Nintendo’s gameplay. Moreover, Odyssey encourages us to draw until the end by offering us a rather frantic rhythm to then tell us that there are still a lot of things to do, and believe us, it’s not a lie. To give you an idea, to beat the last boss, you only need a third of the moons to find. And when after ten hours of play, you realize that you still have to find twice as many moons as you’ve already recovered, knowing that they’re harder, you realize that you’re in for a long time. Remember, you access plenty of material when finishing the game without telling you more. Not only do most countries open new zones, but there are also new moons distributed and even new countries to visit afterwards.
So we come to the transformations, one of the main features of Super Mario Odyssey Mobile. All enemies without headgear can be used to take advantage of their abilities to unblock a road or access normally inaccessible areas. Swimming as a fish, diving in lava as a fireball, fishing as a Lakitu… more than 50 transformations await you for as many ways to play, all or almost all of them being used several times. Regularly, you will have to take advantage of a form for passages of a few minutes, understanding the concept with more and more complex pitfalls as you go along. Here again, it is the diversity that makes the difference: you go from one transformation to another in the blink of an eye, and the practice sessions are so numerous and well used that you never get tired of them.
