Absolutely outstanding game! I wasn't expecting some random fangame to be this solid. I love the original sprites that hearken back to their SNES counterparts, I love its combination of old and new Mario mechanics, I love how when I kick a shell that goes offscreen, it stays there. I love everything you've done, right down to the fact you didn't forget to tilt the pixels as if the resolution actually WAS 16-bit. I'm super excited for this game as it simply brought a smile to my face. Now, if only it had controller support...
SUPER MARIO Power Star Frenzy
A downloadable fangame for Windows
Power Star Frenzy combines many of the great aspects from previous Mario games, and adds it into one amazing experience! It features things like New Super Mario Bros.' excellent level design and 2 player versus mode, Super Mario 64's Power Stars and exploration, Super Mario Galaxy's platforming, Mario and Luigi's humor and characters, and so much more.
Power Star Frenzy is based on pure exploration and adventure, and isn't just get from Point A to B like in most recent Mario games. This fangame brings Mario back to his roots, and implements some new abilities and gives the Mario formula a fresh new feel!
This fangame started developed all the way back in September of 2014, but was a completely different fangame that you see before you right now! So much has changed over the years, and things are only going to get better and better! But now since it's 2018 I started ported the game over onto a new engine. Rather than making it using GameMaker 8.1, I'm porting it over to GameMaker Studio.
My goal is to make one of the most creative, funnest, and most anticipated fangames of all time! So please give the game a shot and tell us what you think! If you like you can join our Discord server for regular updates, and talk among the Power Star Frenzy community!
Extract the files first, then run the .exe file.
Frequently Asked Questions: http://www.powerstarfrenzy.com/faq.html
The 2018 Version has only 1 level, but that's because it just in the early stages of the port. It's meant to show off more of the differences between the port and the legacy version. A new version is coming in May 2018 that'll have 30 Power Stars to collect.
The 2017 Legacy Version has at least 60 Power Stars, but is known to have issues on Windows 10, from not being able to play music correctly to not being able to get past the file selection screen. Hence the reason I decided to port it over to a new engine.

Great job Nick. This website is really cool! I'm sorry that your page on Gamejolt was excluded because of copyright issues.
This is one of the best Super Mario fan games I have played. Awesome work! There is only this issue, that sometimes when I try to play a started game, it freezes and there is only black screen.
Also, is there controller support? If no, can you add? Playing this with keyboard is not very comfortable.
