Author's comments and explanations:
This game is the last Mario series of Super Nintendo released in Japan. It is bundled with the Nintendo version. If all stages are not captured, there is no credits. This game resembles Tetris Attack basically, but can break it with a hammer.

Game objectives

  • Heavy luck manipulation
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Genre: Puzzle Game

Luck Manipulation

The initial placement of the panel changes by waiting before a stage start. The panel falling by a timing to push X sometimes changes. It changes more by pause. I push forward one RNG of the next stage by turning a steering wheel.

The basic tactics

It will disturb an opponent to do a chain and many connections. However, the battle is over when one color of panel does higher than 9 connections. Since it does not end until an enemy falls down to a screen, luck manipulation is carried out so that an enemy may go downward as much as possible.

Possibility of the improvement

Because an initial random number turns big by a power-on noise, this game may get an ideal random number depending on setting of Lsnes.
added: It becomes initial RNG where is equal to Snes9x now. It was not possible for me to choose better Initial RTC value.
Nach: Nice speedy run. However there's not much action and highly repetitive. Accepting for vault.

Ilari: Processing.
