: : : : : Mario is Missing

[edit] Background


Don't look now, but Bowser's back, and this time he's in your world! But where is that mastermind of reptilian trouble doing his dastardly deeds? And what has he done with Mario??

Welcome to Mario is Missing! Take a trek with your travel agent, Luigi, and see the world! Track down troublesome turtles. Figure out where in the world you are, and what on earth happened to Mario. If your grasp of geography is good enough, you'll get the goods, stomp the hoods, and grab Mario out of Bowser's ghastly guest house. A learning adventure that the whole family can share.

This is no Koopa stomping mayhem. It's a fun way to learn about our world. In the game, you get to:

  • Explore exotic cities
  • Steer through streets with maps and a compass
  • Get clues from friendly people
  • Read pamphlets for famous landmarks
  • Retrieve fun facts and figures from a computer database
  • Identify continents, countries, and cities to enlist Yoshi's aid
  • Take snapshots of your adventures... and rescue Mario!

The adventure beings unexpectedly as Mario steps right into Bowser's trap.

To solve the adventure, reading is required.

[edit] Features

  • Aimed at educating kids ages 8-12 about the world's geography and history.
  • Mario is captured by Bowser and Luigi must find his brother and recover all the world's treasures.
  • Cleverly disguised voyage of discovery around the world.
  • Controls that are a bit more complex than your average arcade games.
