    Sep 7th, 2007 at 16:57:28     -    Perfect Cherry Blossom (PC)

    Updateupdateupdate time. Cleared Normal mode without continuing and without extra lives, cleared Extra, and then recently cleared Phantasm. Slowly working on Hard mode now. Extra and Phantasm are beautifully scripted. Each pattern is like a puzzle. You have to figure it out quickly (before you get hit). Once you figure it out, it's not over. The bullets will come faster and faster until you drain the pattern's life bar. Obviously a lot of thought went into these patterns. I'm glad I stuck with it for as long as I have.

    Got to Stage 7 (2-0) today. I can solidly say that I am very impressed with this game. The background finally changes at stage 7, and so does the difficulty. The boss(es?) are no longer mere ships. Somewhere around 7, they change into fully fledged destroyers. They no longer even fit on the entire screen. Considerably difficult.

    Alright. I did something monumentally stupid. I got to the end of World 6. Like, quite literally, the fortress ship. And then I pushed B and hit A. I didn't really even mean to push anything. Can you guess what the first thing on my list of items was? That's right. The whistle. So I got whisked away to the warp zone, and if I wanted to continue, I would have had to re-beat World 6. That's not the only time having that whistle screwed me. I was in the middle of World 6, and I had just received a hammer from defeating a pair of Hammer Bros, and was planning to use it to enter a pipe. I had no idea where this pipe led, so I was pretty curious. I figured why not kill the other Hammer Bros before I go? So I do, and I get a Hammer Bros suit. Sweet! Guess where that suit went? Right on top of my hammer. That's right, I had reached the maximum number of items, and the Hammer Bros suit replaced my Hammer. =( Oh well. I was getting nervous about the 7th World anyway. I've tried to beat it before, but I never have.

    That being said, I did get quite far. Up until then I had beaten every single stage I had come across. I went out of my way to make sure that everything had been cleared. I like to think that I got a pretty good taste of SMB3. And I can say quite honestly that the level design in that game is absolutely beautiful. Everything fits perfectly. There was no one stage I had particular trouble with, yet all of them were challenging in their own unique ways. Almost every single one of them had some kind of secret to uncover as well. Whether it was just a few coins suspended above the field of view, or it was a freakin Tanuki suit, I greatly enjoyed finding the ones I did. A few times I actually went out of my way to attempt a stage again just to find a secret. Sometimes I would see something that quite obviously required the ability to fly, but at the time I would have the Fire Flower. I would intentionally die, use a leaf item from my item list, and then re-attempt the stage just to get there. I was having such a great time just flowing through the Super Mario Brothers 3 universe that I didn't realize that I had been playing for upwards of 3 hours. It was time to go to bed. ;)

    I love SMB3. Back when I was a little guy, I would get up at the crack of dawn, waay before my parents did and way before school started, help my younger sister out of her crib/pen thing, and then the two of us would head downstairs to watch cartoons and play NES. While I have beaten the game before, I had never done it without using any whistles. So today, I have set that goal for myself. I will attempt to beat every stage in SMB3 without using whistles, without getting a game over, and without using any continues.

    So far, so good. I'm at the end of World 3 and though I've run into a few particularly tricky problems, I got past them and am now working my way through the rest. I can't wait to get to World 4 (the one where everything is giant). OH YEAH! I got this secret in the first world on stage 4. I don't exactly remember how you do it, but if you complete stage 1-4 just right, a white mushroom house appears on the world map containing a free P-Wing! CRAZY O_O! I accidentally got the first whistle, too. It's just a habit thing, you know? I won't use it, however.
