My Progress so far:
- Applied the DX Patch for Super Mario Land 3 (Wario Land), wasnt that difficult, so i have now all of the Games in Color which is awesome ..
I played the first World in Super Mario Land 2 (Treezone), and beatet the first Miniboss and got the first coin, now 5 coins to go..
Its quite usefull whit the Pyra GBC Emu and its Savestate Buttons, whit 3 you save, whit 4 you load and whit 5, you change the Savestate Slot..
I wonder if i can beat the Game but at least i decide to continue now the Challenge as i played too many Steamdeck and need something different..

I just finished Mario Land 2 on the Deluxe Gameboy Analogue Pocket, was a bit different to SML1, more like the Mario you know from the NES, but whit cool Levels..
if I had get this Game back then instead of the Alien Game I ditnt know the frenshise back then I think this would be my fafered Gameboy Game and I would not have a washed out cover used Cardridge but my own that would look that good as the SML1 Cardridge..
I used the Savestate Feature of the Analogue Pocket but this was only to save a few continues , it ditnt feel that divicult allthought it had some mean levels at the end ^^
Now Wario is beat and the next Game is the Wario Land, Super Mario Land 3

Had to cancel Wario Land cause i ditnt know how to finish the second level , never played the game bevor ..
but its not canceled forever, just for this Projekt ..
so I’m now at Super Mario Bros Deluxe on GBC, but I decide to play it also on Everdrive to prevent me getting stuck because a fault Save Batterie ..
I’m now in World 5 - 1, I ditnt use the warp pipes , only the Savestates on Analogue Pocket..

Even if I cancel Wario Land, I managed to beat Mario Bros Deluxe Today, there where a few anoying Levels but whit the Savestate Feature of the Analogue Pocket, it was finally possible,
Who thought it’s a good idea to put an Underwater Level in the Endboss Bowser Castle?
The only Mario Game where this was fun was in Mario Land whit the U-Boot ^^

Just finished Mario Bros 2, at least the normal Levels as there is now the Yoshis Challenge.. , maybe later ..

It’s quite Usefull whit the Savestate Feature, but you have to delete lots of stuff after finishing the Game as it’s only 128 Slots..

Now I’m start whit Mario Advance 4, Super Mario Bros 3, ditnt remember it’s got such an Fun Intro

I remember this being mostly about SMB3 but it's not really. Just games in general (even better).


All I ever wanted was a warp whistle.

Allthough im still at my Mario Project, im currently thinking about what next when its finished, even if i still have some titles to go
- Mario Bros3, Mario World, Yoshis Island, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland, Kirbys Funpack DS, Yoshis New Island, New Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario 64, Sunshine, New Super Mario Bros WIIU Switch, Mario 3D World (Bowser Fury), Kirby Switch, Giana Sisters Twistet Dreams... Odyssee.. which might take still a whyle

Im thinking of a Final Fantasy Projekt: I have FF1 &2 as well as FF6 on GBA, 3 and 4 on DS, there is the 7 8 9 10 and 12 on Switch, as well as the Crysis Core Remake on Switch which im currently play..
i will not play 8 because i stuck whit this Train Minigame which dosnt seams to work on Switch.. but the others might be good enough for a few months of Projekt..

Interesting: The Pixel Remasters of 1 - 6 will get a Switch Release this year, so maybe i will have this Projekt only on Switch, if they get sell on the E-Shop then, if not i can also buy them on Steamdeck which is about the same, but a bit bigger..

I though Final Fantasy VI was the part whit Kefca and where you had Machs at the first Mission? , But its still a few Months left until then, maybe i only make the 3 4 6 7 9 X XII and 12.. ..
I think i will continue Mario Bros 3 on Weekend, and according on how fast i was i will start whit Mario World,
who knows? I can also have a Break between my Mario Projekt and Final Fantasy, and take Luigis Mansion 1 and 2 on 3DS and 3 on Switch?

My view:
FF1 - the first.
FF2/3 - japan only I don't know them
FF4 - series matures. great game.
FF5 - more sophisticated character building, better graphics, more side quests & secrets, harder - more for serious RPG players (hence japan only)
FF6 - like FF4 but more epic

Imo 4/5/6 all clearly beat FFVII/PSX, which I didn't even complete, has much crappier gfx... vectors mixed with pre-rendered - yuck. FFVII remake completely sucks.

If I had to pick one up it would be FF5 with the help of save states or FF4 because it's classic and not that long.

I am also attracted to FF Tactics. I don't understand it though....

I'm getting flashbacks of starting out FF4, as Cecil and then you meet Dragoon Kain, you are so weak, the adventure seems to vast and slime kicks your ass. And the music.....

Oh, and one last thing i'll mention, in case you don't jive with FF: Chrono Trigger (̶◉͛‿◉̶)

Have fun!

I think after finishing my Mario Projekt, i will have a Final Fantasy Projekt (3 and 4 DS, VII IX X X2 and 12 Switch) , then an DragonQuest Projekt (VII VIII 3DS, IX DS, 12 and Dragon Quest Builders 2 Switch), and a Luigis Mansion Projekt (1 and 2 on 3DS, 3 on Switch) ..

Just finished Super Mario Bros 3, Now the Next on my List will be Super Mario World
In the last few worlds it was not that easy anymore but the next games might be a bit easier

EDIT: I don’t know if it’s the whole playtime or just after the Update it’s got the Library, but SMB3 is now 5H34 , and SMW at least a whole Hour..

It was only called Mario Challenge when I had the Idea, but it was then evolved to a Nintendo Handheld Jump and Run Projekt, so Yoshis Island fits perfectly, it’s a cool Game and on the GBA Cardridge it’s called „Super Mario World 2 „

And I don’t have Mario RPG..
