Super Mario Star Road is a ROM hack made by Skelux. It was released around Christmas 2011, and contains 130 Stars. This ROM hack is considered to be one of the most famous. It contains levels with similar design to the original Super Mario 64, which is overall very solid and fun.

This hack tries to be a sequel, or another version, of the original Super Mario 64, in terms of level design, difficulty, and plot. Not only are all of the levels redone using custom graphics (some of which directly come from other Nintendo 64 games), but custom music and custom enemies have been added as well. The level entrances range from simple pipes or paintings to more unconventional entrances, such as a vase or an easel. In addition, the boss fights have been changed; Bowser himself is only fought once in the game, at the end of the final Bowser level. In the first two Bowser levels, Mario must defeat a miniboss in order to obtain the key to the next area.

Plot Edit

The plot of the game is told by Yoshi, who informs Mario that Bowser has found the secret to get to the Star Road, the kingdom of the Star Spirits. Using the power of the Power Stars, he is able to transport his troops all over the Mushroom Kingdom to wreak havoc. In order to reach the Star Road, Mario must collect enough Power Stars to break the seal. Once Mario reaches the Star Road, he finds Bowser in his sky base. Mario then defeats Bowser, and is transported to the first overworld, where he is rewarded with another star and a thank you from Peach.

Upon collecting 121 stars (including the one available after beating the final Bowser and the one at the peak of Hidden Palace Finale), one Star Replica will appear in each of the secret levels in the game, making a total of 130 obtainable stars.

Trivia Edit

  • The standard Game Over screen has been replaced with an actual level, which is contained in the Creepy Cap Cave stage.
  • In some of the later versions of Star Road, if the player holds the L button when selecting a file, they will toggle "Hard Mode." In this mode, Mario will die in one hit from anything. Swimming underwater is not affected by this.
  • In the Blueberry Bully arena, Mario can damage boost off the lava to reach a tall, spiraling platform where he can find a block containing a green shell. He can then use this shell to navigate around the area, and discover a mysterious area below the platforms. By falling into the lava pit underneath the Bully's platform, Mario can enter one of three door-shaped holes in the walls, which are all connected and lead down to a hole in the center of the map. Falling into the hole triggers the "secret warp" transition, but causes Mario to die immediately after.
  • In Bob-omb Battle Factory, there is a locked door with a sign next to it that tells the player that the door it leads to is found in Gloomy Garden. Despite this, there is no corresponding door in Gloomy Garden.
  • Dragon Coins, which can be found in almost all levels, were intended to be collected to spawn a star: in the game's code, they have a red coin behavior, but it is broken in-game and only gives Mario two coins.
  • There are two other hacks based on this game. These are Super Mario Star Road Multiplayer by Skelux and Super Luigi Star Road by Quasmok.
  • There is a DS remake currently being developed, Super Mario Star World. It is slated to be finished in 2018 and will include large amounts of new content on top of the original Star Road.
