Paper Mario: Sticker Star
A sticky situation has never been so fun! There's trouble afoot in the
town of Decalburg, where the devious Bowser has disrupted the beloved
Sticker Fest by causing the Sticker Comet to explode. Now Royal Stickers
and pieces of the comet have been flung far and wide, and it's up to
Mario and his ally Kersti to set things right by recovering them. This
captivating hand-held Adventure will have new and experienced fans of
the Paper Mario series captivated as they navigate colorful 3D
environments, defeat enemies, collect oodles of stickers and items and
use them in a variety of fun ways.
Stickers are the key to this imaginative adventure. Battles are
turn-based like in the original Paper Mario game, but instead of an
attack menu, Mario whomps on his enemies using a sticker to attack.
Stickers not only serve as Mario's attacks, but also help solve
puzzles throughout the Paper Mario universe when placed in the correct
spots. Stickers can be found and collected from all corners of the
world, and the flashier the sticker, the more powerful it is.
Mario can also spend coins to use the Battle Spinner, which lets him
use up to 3 stickers in one turn if the icons are lined up just right.
The Battle Spinner can turn the tide in a difficult battle, so
collecting coins through the game to use it is crucial.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star players get stronger by beating bosses,
finding items and completing side missions for other characters in the
game instead of accumulating experience points.
As players progress through the game, they'll find and use more
powerful stickers to boost Mario's attack power. Players can also find
HP-Up hearts to further boost Mario's maximum health.
The environments in Paper Mario: Sticker Star come to life in this
visually-stunning papercraft world on the Nintendo 3DS family of
systems. They also contain a wide range of objects such as electric
fans, scissors and radiators that can be converted into more stickers,
which can then be used to solve puzzles or win battles as Mario
maneuvers through each level.
