Super Mario Exploit is the 7th installment in the famous Super Mario series for the OL Havoc, developed by Outer Limits Co.. Many elements from older games, such as Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 64.
It features 240 Power Stars, with 106 being regular Power Stars, 116 of them being Green Stars, 8 being Red Stars, and 10 being Grand Stars. The stars are split between 10 areas and the 9th area is unlocked by having 80 Power Stars. Princess Peach's Castle is the main HUB, and links to the other Area HUBs, via Warp Pipe.
Princess Peach is holding a party, and she invites Mario and Luigi. Once they arrive, they see many familiar faces, like MIPS, Maria, Toad, Toadette, and Luise. Peach taps her cup and is about to give a speech, when meteorites come crashing down. Airships surround the castle, and rip the roof off. Bowser, Bowser Jr., Boom Boom, and Kamek stand at the bow of the ship. Bowser reveals that he has waited too long for Peach to be his, and that he plans to kill Mario. Mario tries to jump onto the Airship, but Boom Boom punches him, and sends him flying into Toad Town. Peach, now vulnerable, is grabbed and pulled into the Airship by Kamek, and the ships start to fly away. Luigi uncharacteristically decides try to board the Airships himself, but his blasted by Kamek's wand into Toad Town as well. Toad, Toadette, Maria, and Luise are seen being put into cages by numerous Hammer Bros. and Magikoopas, and the ships fly of into the sky.
Mario and Luigi are seen waking up in Toad Town. They get up, and are greeted by Toadsworth and Toadbert, who tell them what happened. They explain Bowser has taken all the Power Stars and scattered them across the Mushroom Kingdom, and plans to weaken the kingdom so he can take it over. Mario and Luigi decide that they need to stop him. Before they depart, Toadsworth warns them that Bowser left behind some troops in the Castle, as well as a Power Star. The two head off to collect the Power Stars and defeat Bowser.
After rescuing a few stars, Toadbert tells Mario and Luigi that Bowser is located in Space, and the only way to get to where he is is by powering the Sling Cannon, which takes 80 Power Stars.
There are 4 playable characters in the game. When entering a course, the Character Select Screen will pop up, and you can choose which character you want to use.
Each character can use basic moves like jumping and crouching, and they can also use abilities Star Spin and Ground Pound.
They also have some obvious differences. Mario is faster and heavier, and easier to control, while Luigi can jump high and far, and slides when he stops. Toad is the fastest character, but jumps low, and Toadette can jump really far, but is the slowest character in the game.
|Image||Name||Description||How To Unlock|
|Mario||It couldn't be a Mario game without Mario, could it? Mario, the plumber hero from the Mushroom Kingdom, is your basic Joe, a well balanced hero with all the basic powers.||N/A|
|Luigi||Luigi, Mario's green, high-jumping, shadowy twin brother is joining his bro. in his mission to stop Bowser! Luigi is less of a basic character, and is a bit harder to control.||N/A|
|Toad||Toad is Peach's advisor, and one of Mario's party members! After being saved, Toad decides he's not gonna stay in the shadows any longer.||Beat Petey in the Big City|
|Toadette||Toadette is Toad's best friend. She joins Mario mainly to take revenge on Bowser for locking her in a tight cage. She is a well balanced character.||Beat|
|Princess Peach||Peach is, once again, the damsel in distress. Although, this time, Bowser plans to use her as part of his plan. He plans on turning her into his queen.|
|Yoshi||Yoshi is a ride-able character that Mario and gang can use throughout their adventure to gain access to new areas. His flutter jump lets him jump longer and higher, and can eat things with his tongue.|
|Toadsworth||Toadsworth is Peach's steward, and one of Mario's allies. He often gives Mario useful information on the current location. He is located in the helm of the Star Glider.|
|Toadbert||Toadbert is another one of Mario's allies. He is the smartest Toad in the Mushroom Kingdom, and puts his intelligence to use. He informs Mario whenever he finds a Power Star he missed, or when they have a new passenger or item. He also acts as the Super Guide for this game.|
|Toad Brigade||The Toad Brigade are a group of five Toads that help Mario in many different courses. Here is a list of their roles:
Red Toad often directs Mario where to go. He is very cowardly, despite being the leader.
Yellow Toad is rarely often seen awake, and when he is, he hardly ever says anything useful, mostly stating his opinions.
Startoad gives useful tips to Mario, and is similar to Toadbert. On the Star Glider, Startoad keeps track of Mario's stars.
Mailtoad delivers Mail to Mario whenever he is delivered some. He is often seen in the water or with his snorkel on.
Banktoad is most likely the most courageous Toad of the brigade. On the Star Glider, he will hold on to Mario's coins, and will add on to them whenever he can.

|Coin||Coins replenish Mario and gang's health. They are also counted, and every 50 collected gives Mario and gang a 1-up. Coins are also used in Princess Peach's Castle to buy Purple Coins, which will eventually give you a Power Star.|
|Purple Coin||Purple Coins can be purchased from Toadbert for 100 coins each. Once 100 are collected, you can give them to Sweebly, who will then give you a Power Star.|
|Power Star||Power Stars are the main item in this game. Mario and gang must recover all 230 Power Stars Bowser has scattered across the Mushroom Planet. There are also different types of Power Stars, such as Green Stars and Silver Stars.|
|Green Star||Green Stars are hidden Stars that must be found while doing other courses. There is one per every normal Power Star, and count as Power Stars.|
|Red Star||Red Stars are extremely secret Power Stars that only appear when certain conditions are met. There are 8 in the entire game.|
|Silver Star||Silver Stars are small Power Stars that are scattered among courses. Once all five are found, they gather, combine, and form a Power Star.|
|Bronze Star||Bronze Stars are Power Stars that are collected only if you get help from Toadbert in a course. They allow you to access the next course in the area, but are not counted in your Star count, the cannon, and the course it is collected on still counts as unfinished.|
|Grand Star||Grand Stars are the biggest and most powerful type of Power Star there is. There are 10 of them total, and are needed to defeat Bowser.|
|Yoshi Egg||Yoshi Eggs contain Yoshi's inside them. They are commonly found near the beginning of a course or section. The color of the Yoshi varies, depending on how well many coins you have:
0-15 = Green, 16-40 = Red, 41-75 = Cyan, 76-100 = Blue, and 101+ = Orange.
|N/A||Small Mario||Small Mario is Mario's default form. He achieves this by starting a game, or getting hit as Super Mario. He is unable to break Brick Blocks, spin, and Ground Pound.|
|Super Mario||Mario's normal form, and most popular. As Super Mario, Mario can break Brick Blocks, spin into enemies, and Ground Pound. He is also able to use Power-Ups.|
|Fire Mario||Fire Mario is probably Mario's most famous Power-Up. Mario can throw Fire Balls in this form. He also moves a bit faster.|
|Ice Mario||Ice Mario, the polar opposite of Fire Mario. Despite being relatively new, this Power-Up is quite a regular one. In this form, Mario can throw Iceballs and can skate along ice.|
|Invincible Mario||This is Mario's strongest form. As Invincible Mario, Mario runs at super fast speeds, and is invincible, so he can ram into enemies. Also, when he jumps, he does a flip, and goes super far. This Power-Up is temporary.|
|Hammer Mario||Hammer Mario is one of the oldest, and probably strongest Power-Ups Mario has. In this form, Mario can toss hammers at enemies from afar, and can duck in his shell to avoid fire. He is also relatively slower.|
|Tanooki Mario||Tanooki Mario is another old Power-Up, but has some new tweaks. Tanooki Mario can hover for a short time, and can also climb trees. He can spin his tail to hurt enemies, and can turn into a statue to confuse them.|
|Frog Mario||This form is also old, but has updated powers. Frog Mario leaps along the ground instead of running, and jumps twice as high as Super Mario. He also swims better than any other form.|
|Boomerang Mario||Boomerang Mario is one of Mario's newer Power-Ups. In this form, Mario can toss his boomerang at enemies to attack them from afar, but has to wait for it to return. Like Hammer Mario, he can also duck in his shell to avoid fire.|
|Volt Mario||Volt Mario is one of the four new Power-Ups. In this form, Mario can toss thunderballs at enemies. In the air, he can also preform an electrified ariel kick.|
|Wind Mario||Wind Mario is one of the four new Power-Ups. Using this form, Mario can blow gusts of wind at enemies to spin them out or knock them off the edge. Mario has limited air, and after using it, must wait until he has more.|
|Bomber Mario||Bomber Mario is one of the four new Power-Ups. As Bomber Mario, Mario has three, inactive Bob-Ombs that follow him around, Mario can throw them at enemies. Once picked up, they light. After they are used, Mario must find another Bomber Suit to get more. He can also duck to avoid damage from the explosion.|
|Biddybud Mario||Bidybud Mario is one of the four new Power-Ups. In this form, Mario can fly for a while, until the gauge empties. In the air, if Mario collects Coins, he can fly for as long as he likes. He can also stick to some surfaces, and land on flowers and clouds.|
As with the rest of the Super Mario 3D series, Mario can access each area at any given time once it is unlocked, and there is no specific order in which he needs to collect stars.
Super Mario exploit also features the Star Glider, an aircraft that allows Mario and co to travel across the different levels, similar to Starship Mario from Super Mario Galaxy 2

- The forms Invisible Mario, Sand Mario, Whomp Mario, Monkey Mario, Cursed Bomb Mario, and Spiked Yoshi were all supposed to appear, but were scrapped to being either to close to other forms, or having useless powers.
- Volt Mario's color scheme is very similar to Hammer Mario's.
- This game makes it apparent that Toad and Red Toad are two separate characters, as Toad can interact with Red Toad and the rest of the Toad Brigade throughout the course of the game.
