Top 3 Super Mario 64 Worlds
With Super Mario Odyssey returning to the style of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, let’s look back at Super Mario 64 and discuss some of its best worlds.
3. Cool, Cool Mountain
Cool, Cool Mountain had a lot of cool features, and not just because of its wintry theme. It sends you sliding down the mountain in a variety of paths, has secret alcoves for you to discover if you want to find everything, pits you in a race against a penguin, and more. Besides, the snow-covered mountain and falling snow just makes it a beautiful level–at least, if you like winter.
2. Wet-Dry World
Wet-Dry World has one of the most unique tricks, with switches that control the water level. This makes it a bit of a puzzle to navigate, as you need to adjust the water depending on where you want to go. And while seeing different parts of this world with the water raised or lowered already gives it two distinct feels, it also has an abandoned “Downtown” area, with buildings and even a park.
1. Big Boo’s Haunt
If you love spooky levels, you’ll love Big Boo’s Haunt. Not only is there a unique way to enter this haunted mansion, but once you’re inside, you’ll encounter ghosts, creepy carousel music, and a vicious killer piano. (Yes, a killer piano.) It has a strong, unique atmosphere that helps it stand out in the memory–and possibly nightmares–of many Super Mario 64 players.
Do you agree with Cool, Cool Mountain, Wet-Dry World, and Big Boo’s Haunt as the best Super Mario 64 worlds? Which are your favorites, and what kinds of worlds are you hoping to see in Super Mario Odyssey?
