Run, jump, float and fight through eight worlds to find Mario
Whack Bowser's minions with your parasol
Peach channels four vibes into special powers
Super Princess Peach features classic Super Mario Bros. style
side-scrolling action. Each world is composed of five levels and a boss.
As you look for Mario, you'll find imprisoned Toads, collect coins and
discover hidden areas.
Peach doesn't have the luxury of getting a mushroom out of an item box
to make her super, but she becomes super by getting in touch with the
vibes. Each of her four vibes (Joy, Rage, Gloom and Calm) power her up
as long as her vibe meter isn't empty.
Fans of Super Mario Bros. platformers will really dig the Joy vibe. This
one lets Peach float through the air. This can be useful for avoiding
some tricky jumps, but mostly it's valuable for finding special pockets
of coins hidden within the clouds. Without the Joy vibe, the game's
treasures will stay a secret to you.
Another way to find those secret levels is through the Gloom vibe. You
can't be happy all the time, right? When Peach uses this vibe, she cries
a river, but her gushing tears nourish vine plants. When the water hits
the vine plant, it will grow tall and strong, allowing Peach to jump on
the leaves and find secret levels. In the first boss battle, Peach will
need to use the Gloom vibe to fill a Piranha Plant's gut with her gush
of tears. (It's OK to over-water this plant.)
When Peach jumps on an enemy, it doesn't kill them but instead stuns
them. From there, Peach can pick them up and throw them, whack them with
her umbrella Perry or scoop them up with Perry and let the umbrella eat
them. Every time Perry consumes a baddy, Peach's vibe meter fills. If
you can't find any vibe crystals to fill up the meter, look to scoop and
scarf on some Goombas or Koopas.
Peach platform jumps like a pro in her first solo adventure! Super
Princess Peach turns the Mario-and-Peach story on its head and shows the
princess is more than just a pretty face.
When Bowser kidnaps Mario and Luigi and gets hold of the magical Vibe
Wand, he heads off for Vibe Island with a troop of minions in tow.
Intent on rescuing the Mario Bros., Peach gives chase and finds herself
affected by the vibes given off by the island. Using these newfound
vibes to channel special abilities, she sets off to rescue Mario and
Fans of classic side-scrolling Mario games should definitely give this
one a look! We'll have a hands-on, detailed review of the game soon.
