Just like last time, we’ve paired up our editors with one another, and they’ll build levels for each other. Whether these are fun/cool tributes to our favorite Mario games or Machiavellian death traps built solely to destroy friendships remains to be seen, but either way, it’s going to be a good time.
A Trash Castle
First up, Features editor Jon Ryan built a cruel castle full of hidden traps and other mean things before forcing Guides editor Brendan Graeber to walk its halls (or, perhaps more accurately, fall down its randomly deep holes).

An Egyptian Pyramid
Brendan’s revenge is swift, though (and perhaps unintentionally disproportionate), as JR descends into a tomb of ancient horrors and battles – for a long, long time – an evil underground magic.

In our Super Mario Maker 2 review, we called the game “Amazing” saying “Super Mario Maker 2 does nearly everything better than its already excellent predecessor, keeping the charm of a Mario game while introducing some incredible new ideas.”
We’ll be back with more of our own devious Mario Maker levels later this week, but we want to see what you’re building in SMM2, too! Drop your course or maker IDs in the comments below – good luck, and happy building!
