This is my first course. Simple because its made just with the beginner tools, but its a good basic course for newbies. Please star me!

Here is one I worked on for a while today. May be too hard, I dunno...

2A82-0000-0016-86DF

Was thinking about the last stage in Super Mario 3 when I made this.

Edit: How about a Yoshi level? 408A-0000-001A-41A9

And, here was my first attempt from this morning: 640F-0000-0015-455D

Maybe I'm just missing it but is there any way to star a level without having to beat it again?

Thanks Nick. I'll try yours tomorrow, heading out for dinner now.

Sorry! Just saw your post. I will give it a whirl in a bit. The gamepad was getting hot on me from playing so long. First time I've had to charge it up multiple times in one day.

Edit: Starred. Not bad.

Here's the first level I made. They don't let you start with many tools, so it's fairly simplistic.

3 ways to finish! Can get to the top of the flag?

I got the game kind of late tonight. When Xbox Live gaming plans fell through, I cracked open my just-acquired copy of Mario Maker and played a couple hours. Made one level outside of the initial tutorial thing. Played through a couple 10 Mario Challenges and a single 100 Mario Challenge.

Great stuff so far!

Play and complete any mode of 100 Mario Challenge until it unlocks. What costume you get is random.

Just started playing for a few hours last night. I made a rather simple platforming variant of World 1-1, but the tools you start with definitely limit what you are able to do. The initial limitation and waiting to unlock more tools is the one thing that really bugs me about this game, I would have preferred the game not hold my hand so much and allow me to have all the creative freedom I want out of the gate. Aside from that and the absurd amount of "Don't Move" levels out right now, I am really enjoying the game. I hope we start seeing more traditional and unique platforming levels though, because after all I want to play levels and not ride virtual Mario roller coasters.

I was able to unlock everything last night. If you play in the maker for 5 minutes (or is it 15?), you'll get the notification that new tools will be delivered the next day. Then, start putting down blocks everywhere. The number of blocks put down in the maker will make the tools show up faster.

I'm a little disappointed that the freakin' Wii board and the spring get character mushrooms and yet a certain character did not...A certain character that worked his butt off keeping Donkey Kong and the bees out of his greenhouse...a certain character that has popped up occasionally in the WarioWare games....and even got replaced in a certain character that keeps getting passed up for every single smash bros. game....and now Mario Kart....and apparently Mario Maker....and will probably never get his own Amiibo....

First 2 completions of 100 Mario Challenge rewarded me with the Pikmin and Super Mario Kart mystery mushrooms!

I love the game but it got me thinking. It's amazing how far we have come in 30 years. From playing on giant CRT tv's to playing on giant flatscreens, making our own levels on touchscreens and playing other levels from people across the globe.

 

Also I wish Nintendo had the option to either do all the tutorial stuff or just give you everything at once. I think I have enough Mario cred to use everything at once, seeing I just about played every 2D Mario to date. I unlocked all the pieces last night, did the 5 mins then upped the clock to the next day and repeat.

Played and starred this one and your Yoshi level. Almost made it all the way to Bowser from one of the mushrooms with the cape and a running start but came up just short. Pretty good stuff.

I noticed a few courses were implementing the 30th anniversary amiibo powerup but it delt kind of gimmicky and unnecessary in a lot of cases so I decided to make a course in which you have to make effective use of it. Check it out.

I heard the game doesn't have the ability to use checkpoints. Do you think that could be part of a future update?

They probably won't do checkpoints because the levels themselves can't be made super long length wise. Some people make super hard levels though so it makes you wish for checkpoints, but distance wise they aren't that far.

Here is the first of eight levels I am creating in a series called: Legend of Mario.

 

Legend of Mario: Shroom Dungeon    4D80-0000-0027-E27E

 

The goal of each level in the series is to make the level feature a power-up (like an item/weapon in Zelda) that has to be used to complete the stage. So the basic Mushroom is the key to Shroom Dungeon. It's not easy, but I hope you will enjoy the logic of the puzzles!

Made my first level. Kinda tired of all the springboard jumps, stars, lakitu's, and craziness that I've been running into, so it is more of a standard mario course.

 

Theres a harder platformy way to get through it, and a much easier way if you poke around and explore. Also a couple hidden 1-ups.

No, but I did finish 2 of the three ways. It was nice to see some coins there.

Wanted to comment but it said I had to start Mii Verse at least once.

 

I liked your level a lot. I admit I tried to use one of the koopas on the 1up trick (and failed). And I died the first time I saw

.

 

 

I don't want to spam the thread, but I'll comment on every level once I get the Mii Verse stuff figured out.

Played and starred this, it was really good. Very creative path choices.

Also played and starred some of the others listed here. I'm going to play as many as I can.

Oh, a little piece of advice. If you put down a pipe, either have it go off screen or put it up against something. Don't have it floating in mid-air not attached to anything. Does not look professional at all.

Thanks!  Kind of want to start another, but the first was quite the undertaking, time wise.  Maybe they will go faster now.

 

Going to load and play some of the others in this thread when I get a chance.

 

Funny, with how many times you have to enter play mode and test things, it's like second nature to play through your own when you are done building. I can pretty much run through it almost every time without a hiccup - so you start thinking "well, this is pretty easy".  Then when you see that it has a success rate under 4% and only 4 / 17 people bothered to finish it, it kind of hits home that it's a muscle memory / knowledge thing.

Cleared.

 

Now delete this thing. Please, for the sake of the children.

 

In other news, played several others that were linked here and starred them, good stuff.
