Super Mario Maker is definitely one of the more interesting games of the year thanks to its gameplay features which allow players to be very creative when designing Super Mario courses. New interesting ways to make objects interact have been discovered recently and new ways to center bigger enemies on single tiles and place smaller enemies between tiles have been detailed recently.
Reddit user jonahhl has recently discovered how to center bigger enemies on 1 tile areas. To do so players have to place a smaller enemy first, then stack the bigger enemy on it and then place a fireball in place of the smaller enemy. As nothing can be stacked on fireballs, it’s possible to delete the fireball and keep the bigger enemy centered. This technique can also be used in reverse to place smaller enemies between tiles. I have taken some screenshots demonstrating these techniques and you can check them out right below.
One of the biggest Super Mario Maker issues is the lack of checkpoints, which can be limiting for those who want to create bigger and more complex stages. This issue will finally be fixed later this week with a new update introducing checkpoints and a few other features but some players have found clever ways to introduce them. One of these ways involves using invisible Question mark blocks, a POW block and coins, a really cool way to work around the game’s limitations.
Super Mario Maker is now available in all regions exclusively on Wii U. The new update introducing checkpoints and some other new interesting features will be released on November 4th in both North America and Europe. We will keep you updated on any future updates and new content as soon as more comes in so stay tuned for all the latest news on this interesting Wii U exclusive game.
