Friday Favorites: Super Mario 64 Worlds

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!
Last week, I talked about my least favorite worlds from Super Mario 64. While the game is not my favorite from the Nintendo 64 era, there is no denying how much it defined the face of video games!
Cool, Cool Mountain
I enjoy snowy worlds. I think they’re generally really pretty to stare at and get lost in, and they tend to have some awesome music. Cool, Cool Mountain had a decent area to explore as well as a fun sliding race with the penguin. It was always amusing to have Mario leap off part of the level to land stuck face-down into the snow on a lower part!
Tick Tock Clock
Aside from having a fun title, Tick Tock Clock was a good challenge. The different stars were interesting to get and having the level’s speed correspond with what “time” was on the clock when you entered the world was a nice mechanic. The look and graphics of the level was a lot of fun, too.
Rainbow Ride
I really enjoy sky worlds and flying around — one of my favorite parts of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was soaring around on the Loftwing birds — and Rainbow Ride was no exception. Sure, the flying carpets were a little slow and could be annoying, but they were challenging and did great in showcasing the level.

  1. Cool, Cool Mountain is my number 1 fav world! It was so much fun. I also liked the main world in Mario 64. The music, running into Chomp and climbing to the top of the mountain to race were all pretty cool. The world was beautiful.

    • I agree, Bob-omb Battlefield is the perfect intro world for Super Mario 64, in my opinion. That world had so many familiar aspects to the Mario world, and the challenges for the stars were perfect. 🙂 The only reason why it didn’t break my top list was because it is so familiar due to playing it the most with every new game.
