Super Mario and the Quest for the Mushroom World is a fangame created by DaPeashooter45. It follows the gameplay elements from the previous installments.


Mario, Luigi, Professor Elvin Gadd, Wario, Waluigi, Blue Toad and Green Toad are with Princess Peach and Princess Daisy in Princess Peach's Castle having dinner together. Bowser suddenly arrives in his Airship, with a giant mechanical fist, that smashes and launches the brothers and the Toads towards the Acorn Plains. Mario and his friends crash into the Acorn Tree, launching Super Acorns through the area. Mario and co. then tumble out of the tree, passing a Bubble Baby Yoshi and Balloon Baby Yoshi, while they're at it, and look into the horizon to see Bowser beginning a seige on Princess Peach's Castle, setting the Mario Bros. and the Toads to go on a new adventure and save Princess Peach and Daisy.

When they are on their way to Acorn Plains, Professor Elvin Gadd tells the other four heroes that Bowser is beginning a seige on Princess Peach's Castle.

After reaching Peach's Castle, Mario defeats Bowser and sees Peach and Daisy in a tower. Before he can save them, they are locked inside. Then Bowser returns, and Mario must use Bowser Jr.'s Koopa Clown Car (stolen by stomping the rider) to trounce him. Bowser eventually is defeated and Bowser Jr. runs away in fright. Mario (or whoever delivered the final blow to Bowser) gets to Peach and Daisy and bows down to the Princesses, he is then kissed on the forehead by them, to Mario's shock but delight. The Koopa Troop leaves and their airship crashes, and Mario and Co. rejoice.


Gameplay is similar to other games, especially New Super Mario Bros. Wii, with the return of the 4-player multiplayer, while most of the elements and design found in the game make a heavy reference to Super Mario World. Players can play as their Miis, including the first player, who can also choose whoever to play as. A fifth player can join as well, though they will use the Wii U GamePad to assist the players, in a mode known as Boost Mode. This mode allows the fifth player to create temporarily blocks to either assist or annoy the other players, simply by touching the GamePad screen. The player operating Boost Mode can also stun enemies.

Power-ups, like the Fire Flower, Ice Flower, Penguin Suit, Propeller Mushroom, Mega Mushroom, and the Mini Mushroom return. The game also features a new power-up, the Super Acorn, which gives Mario and company a Flying Squirrel form, which lets them glide and grab on to walls.


Unlike previous New Super Mario Bros. titles, where the worlds were separated like in Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario and the Quest for the Mushroom World has a seamless world map with areas named after different foods and drinks, similar to Super Mario World. Like New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the Worlds include Toad Houses and Enemy Courses that players will encounter in the game. The music changes instruments throughout the world map similar to Yoshi's Island. Though, like the previous games, there are Towers, Castles and Ghost House-related levels within each part of the world:

  • World 1: Acorn Plains: A grassy world with plenty of shrubs, slanted mountains, and the Acorn Tree.
  • World 2: Pagoda Peak: A China-themed world with Koopa Master, who lives at the top of the mountain.
  • World 3: Pyramid Park: An Egypt-themed world with multiple islands, and deserts. This world can be entirely skipped for Frosted Flake.
  • World 4: Frosted Flake: A snowy world that takes place at night filled with snow. This world can be entirely skipped for Pyramid Park.
  • World 5: Hightail Falls : A rainforest-esque world similar to the galaxy of the same name.
  • World 6: Sweet Mystery Mines: A mountainous world with tall, pillar like mountains. A cloud train seems to separate this world from the next world. It also includes cakes.
  • World 7: Grand Canal: A world that is based off of the real Grand Canal in Venice.
  • World 8: Neon Heights: A New York City-themed world, set atop a skyscraper complex. It is complete with a theatre district, a movie set, a space center, and a baseball diamond.
  • World 9: Peach's Castle: A grassland area, similar to World 1 from the previous New Super Mario Bros. games, containing mushroom hills and the castle of the princess. It has been taken over by the Koopa Troop and is slowly transformed into Bowser's image until eventually being surrounded by a tornado. By the time the player reaches the castle grounds, it has been transformed into a lava-based area. Princess Peach's castle remains mostly unchanged on the outside (the flags now have Bowser's symbol on them) but on the inside it is similar to Bowser's Castle from previous installments. This is the final world of the game and must be completed to beat the game..
