Super Mario Maker is out in the wild and players have already made some insane levels in such little time. I know from experience that finding an exceptional level can be difficult especially among the clutter of average and abysmal levels. to help my fellow maker, I’ve decided to put together a collection of some of the best Super Mario Maker levels in one convenient place.
I understand that very good levels will emerge every so often, so I will try my best to update the article periodically with the new inclusions. It would be of great help to me if you recommend a level that you enjoy and/or find it particularly impressive. If it is a Youtube video just post a link. If you have the level code as well that would be fantastic.
Also if you like others to test out your levels to earn stars, then feel free to post the name of the level and the level code. I’ll be glad to give them a go and I won’t hesitate to give out stars. (Sorry, I don’t have YouTube videos of all the stages)
