Lightbulb NSMB Challenge

So for a while now, I have been reading about how everyone is complaining that the Mario games these days are too easy. There is just so many ways to get extra lives and have power-ups ready to go. Since Nintendo doesn't seem to be adding harder difficulties, so I propose we make a challenge to make it difficult!

Here is what I have been doing so far while playing the original NSMB to make it more difficult:

  • Must collect all Star Coins in each world while in playthrough
  • Must play every level in the world during playthrough
  • Don't use any Toad Houses or 1 up Houses
  • No back-up items
  • No Mega-mushrooms
So far, it actually has proven to be tougher, as I still only have about 6 lives at the moment and am currently on World 3.

What do you guys think? Think that's still too easy? Post your ideas of how to make these games tougher!

But I already did all of that my first playthrough and it was still really easy. :I

Well, umm, maybe we can make it harder by limiting the lives you have?

I don't know, I don't think many Mario games have been tough after SMW.

My ideas


• Achieve 1000000 coins without any rainbow levels or coin rush
• Complete the game with both Mario and Luigi
• No power-ups allowed, unless you need it to complete level
• Complete the game under 10 hours
• Complete each level in under 100 seconds
• No warp tunnels

^We'll just ignore if you disagree.

And I'm not in because just collecting all Star Coins and finding all exits is usually a good enough challenge for me.

I do like some of those ideas. The coin one will have to wait until NSMB2 but in the mean time...

Perhaps we can make it fun by having to defeat all the bosses as mini-Mario? That in itself makes a boss fight much more entertaining.

I did all of this. And once you beat 100% of the game, the toad houses are unlimited.
