Product Details:

When Bowser kidnaps Peach and escapes to another dimension, a scientist uses his Spherifier to transform Mario into a ball and fires him after the fiend. Lightning-fast action, crazy pinball worlds, and Mario. What's not to love?

It's just a pinball game, right? Hardly. It's a flipping adventure. Mario rolls through different worlds. Instead of performing his signature jump on enemies, Mario just steamrolls them in ball form.

Each pinball arena contains a door to the next level. You must shoot Mario into the door to open it and then shoot him through the door to advance to the next level. Of course, all your favorite baddies from the Mario universe stand in the way of Mario and the door.

In some levels, Mario can roll through special openings to face a boss character or pick up bonuses. Every time you knock out a bad guy, it leaves behind a coin. With those coins, you earn points. Toad also appears occasionally and hosts a shop where you can buy items. Buying an extra pipe is nice in times of need, or maybe you'd rather have the mushroom to transform into a super Mario ball.

Mario can also earn other bonuses. Once you defeat enough opponents, a question mark sometimes appears in the middle of the level. Once Mario rolls into it, bonus items appear in a box. Press the A Button to win the item that appears in the box, like an extra pipe to keep Mario from rolling past the flippers. The item can even be something bad, such as a reduction in points.

The controls are very, very simple. You just control the flippers at the bottom of the screen. However, the gameplay is so addictive that it's tough to stop once you get on a roll.

* Play through the varied worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom.

* Collect Star Keys, defeat enemies, buy special items, and rack up the points as you rebound through dangerous locales full of familiar enemies.

* Single-screen, 3-D isometric view.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pinball game. This is probably the best pinball game. with the classic mario and awesome levels. I like this game because it combines pinball with one of the best gaming characters, Mario. Its perfect for casual gamers. A game that is not really addicting but not that boring. As you progress you go to more fun but harder arenas. Its a great game to pick up and just play when you are bored.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from different This was worse than I was expecting, but still is a decent game. It almost has 3d graphics wich is pretty cool especially for a pinball game. The soundtracks can get a little loud and repetitive at times. If you are looking for a pinball game than get this, but if you are looking for a mario adventure game for the GBA stick with super mario advance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game but hard This game has fun levels and challenges but it is really hard to get past a level. And it's really worth the money.
