"All community members will be able to compete in new age achievements and challenges for Mario Bros 3 that will require members to upload video evidence as proof of completion. Achievements in the form of medals will be awarded to community members for their completion of the challenges. "

I want to get the communities input on solid challenges we can have for the Fanfest. We are going to have 1 challenge per world. We want to make these challenges pretty difficult but definitely achievable for your average gamer.

Each challenge should center around something that is featured in the world for that day. For example, the sun in world 2, the use of the from suit in world 3, ect.

After we iron out each challenge for each day, we can start the medal creations.

Well, that rules out the link of stuff about SMB3 I was going to recommend. It has plenty of random semi-hidden things about the game, but no challenges that pertain to a certain world's theme... I guess I'll throw it in here in the event you need a challenge for a world you can't think of the theme of:

WARNING: Link contains all sort of spoiler stuff for SMB3 (Just so I can't be blamed. :P )

http://www.themushroomkingdom.net/smb3_codes.shtml

Now I must try to think of a theme that is relevant to a world!

You make a good point. In the scenario that we can't find a great themed challenge, we can use others. So feel free to submit any challenges you can think of.

Maybe you should also make it so that the achievements do not call for a recording of more than 5-10 minutes. Considering the amount of videos that will be coming in for this, that will be a LOT of clips to check for medals.

Mine is kinda cheap but simple - don't lose a single life. Other than that, even though I used to play this a lot as a kid, my recollection of the game is very hazy...

I've got a couple of challenges in mind.

- Complete World 1 without taking any damage/losing any lives (I guess this could be applied to other levels too).

- Beat the game without using any items that let you skip levels (i.e. P-Wing, Cloud, Warp Whistle, Hammer, Music Box, and even the Anchor).

I had more, but it's late and I can't remember them.

I guess I'll throw some ideas out there

- Beat the whole game in under a half hour. (using warp whistles obviously :P )
I've beaten SMB3 in a half hour so its totally possible.

- Beat the airship level in world 8 with no power ups.

- Get a white mushroom house or a white airship in any of the worlds they appear in.

- Defeat Boom Boom in under 5 seconds.

- Defeat Bowser while wearing the frog suit.

hope this helps ;P

Second Bowser?

There's two different Bowser rooms. One with a smaller hole in the floor than the other.

Kairamek
08-19-2011, 09:18 PM
I see. So they didn't remove a row of blocks for the other room, they created two rooms and each door warps to a different point in that map. Nice old school trickery there.

Of course being in Mario 3 means that's WHY it's old school.

One question about these. Is there a time limit to get them? Like do we have to get them the same day as that world is played or can I go back and get like the World 1 achievements today?

In the threads titled World # Achievements, it says proof must be posted by Oct 1st. I believe this deadline goes for all the achievements.

Just a thought, but perhaps it could be a nice touch if the achievements were treated more like PSN's trophies and had rankings based on their difficulties. Give them bronze, silver, and gold backgrounds for the images, accordingly, instead of a plain gray. Perhaps even have an equivalent of a platinum trophy for those who accomplish all the achievements.

I suppose in the end it's just aesthetic, aside from the platinum thing, but it might make people feel extra special for pulling off the harder achievements.
