Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be out for Nintendo Wiis in America this weekend, but why wait several days to play a new Mario game? Super Mario Star Scramble 2 is out now, for now.

The new Mario game is a side-scrolling Mario adventure from Dutch developer Kenney Vleugels, a Nintendo fan who has already dared to make one Mario fan-game. He claims the first Star Scramble has played 17 million times. Now we've got a sequel, not licensed by Nintendo.

Vleugels makes non-Mario games, too. But the Mario stuff is the biggest draw to newcomers to his work. Go play Super Mario Star Scramble 2 and let me know how it is. I'm busy with a different Mario sequel.

Such a disappointment! I liked the style of it: it pretty much combined elements from every Mario game. The Yoshi's Island style intro, the SMB3 map, the Super Mario World style levels, grabbing Sun Sprites! But basic Mario things are missed: no powerups, no secret parts underneath pipes, and it looks like there's no boss levels! It also feels empty without Mario's voice: "It's a-me! Mario!"

Why does he look like a grown Mario, but he goes down with 1 hit? I couldn't get past the 3rd level because of the awful controls: either I missed a platform, or I fell into a pit!
