Essentially Nintendo’s take on Lemmings, Mario Vs. Donkey Kong has Mario guiding wind-up toys made in his image to safety doors at the end of each level. Like the PC classic, one these so-called Mario minis are activated they can only move in straight lines, so using the environment (Mario pipes, conveyor belts and the like) as well as special tools like bridge-building girders and Shyguy-smashing hammers is key. What makes Mini-Land Mayhem tops? Aside from superior level deign, it’s fully integrated construction mode lets you make your own levels.
