Super Mario World - Part 2

Continuing where we last left off, our hero continues through the Vanilla Secrets to the Vanilla Fortress, conquers the Butter Bridge area, unravels the Forest of Illusion, and consumes the delectable Chocolate Island. This part is some what long because there are a lot of secret areas that the player can discover.

Notable levels include:

Vanilla Fortress - The only underwater castle/fotress in the game

Cheese Bridge Area - Clever Secret goal where the player needs to be skilled at flying

Forest of Illusion 1 - In my opinion, the best level for grinding lives (get a star at the power up block after the mid-way point and run through each of the enemies until it runs out, Wigglers give 2-ups)

Forest Ghost House - Easy to forget that this level has 2 goals

Forest of Illusion 4 - First level where the secret level is required to continue

Chocolate Island 2 - Interesting level in which different parts of the level show up depending upon how much time is on the clock or how many coins are collected

Super Mario World - Part 3

After finishing the Chocolate Island and unearthing the path to Bowser, our hero ventures into the Valley of Bower to finish the journey to save Princess Peach. We also conclude this part with a quick stop in the Star World. Next time we will finish the Special World and enter Bower's castle. Edit: This post was super frustrating because I lost all of my footage the first time I went through this due to the stream unexpectedly dropping frames. I had to quickly rerecord each of the levels I cleared and it seemed like I did better the second time I played. Notable Levels include Valley Ghost House - This has the hardest secret level to get to. You've got to Lead a coin snake and hit a P switch so that you can climb up and duck thorough a one block opening . Valley Fortress - I would call this the hardest Fortress with the amount of instant kill spike poles Valley of Bowser 4 - Secret requires Yoshi to get the key Star World 2 - Only level to get a Blue Yoshi (not co

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Part 2

Entering the next area, Krem Quay, Diddy and Dixie travel through the swamp to start their ascent up Crocodile Island. This world has us traveling through a perilous bayou using rotatable timed barrels and crocodile head to  travel around a sunken ship (again calling back to the game's pirate theme) to get to the other side of the quay to meet the boss, Kudgel. This area contains 7 levels: two dedicated bayou levels, Barrel Bayou and Krockhead Klamber, to handle the horizontal platforming; one underwater level, Glimmer's Galleon, which uses limited lighting to create a feeling of suspense as they travel through the sunken ship; and, finally, one vertical platforming level in Slime Climb. This world also introduces two new level types: Animal Buddy Levels in the form of Rattle Battle, and Bramble Levels, i.e. Bramble Blast. Animal Buddy levels transform the Kongs into the Animal Buddy and has that animal buddy travel through the level with the addition their specific power s

Trine - Part 3 to End

Honestly, It's kind a hard with a game that's much more about the platforming and gameplay to try to stretch out a blog post about it. The rest of the game is pretty straight-forward. A bunch of more platforming challenges with some added difficulty. A few new mechanics: Adding in dark areas where the Thief and Soldier have to light up a torch to see where the player can jump Lava that kills the player much more quickly than spikes or acid Balance puzzles where the player must take into account how much weight two sides of a scale have so that the player can proceed We do reach the final boss in this part and as you may guess, it's a platforming challenge in which the stage actively puts obstacles in your way that you must destroy before you can move on. When you get to the top of the tower you see a cut scene where you defeat the corrupted old king and reunited the artifacts to return balance to the world and vanquish the undead menace.
