Super Mario Evolution (or SMEv), is a Mario game, for the Wii. The game is in 2.5D with 2.5D graphics. This game is a sequel to the game Super Mario World. It used many elements, classics and news, from the Mario games, like items and enemies.
Due to the large amount of movement, that allows the Wii, the gameplay is very different from Super Mario World: the movements are the same than Super Mario World's one. They are however less difficult to realize. The graphics are, of course, completely differents, integrating the 3D relief. This game also possess news capacities, like the capacity to see our progression, during a level, and the one to save our progression any time, and keep our Dragon Coin when exiting the game. The story is also more worked than Super Mario World's one, and included dialogues. In each levels (exept the Toad Houses), four Dragon Coin can be collected. They allows the player to access in new levels, hidden in the map, which requires a certain number of Dragon Coins for being open.
