Super Mario Enigmatic is a puzzle episode that consists of 129 small levels and 17 boss fights. All levels take place in one screen, and the objective is to get from one door to another either by platforming, using items, or solving switch puzzles. The episode was previously known as "Koopa Reign of Terror", but with the revamp and many added levels and updates, the name was also changed to better reflect the nature of the episode. A story introduction and a proper world map have also been added.

Basic level entities consists of 9 levels and a boss fight. There are also mini entities that have five or less levels. You can save and progress on the world map after completing an entity. You have a chance to replenish your life count to 99 after completing the set of levels.

The difficulty at the beginning is relatively easy, but ramps up towards the end of the episode. The last levels should present a challenge even to the SMBX veterans.

This was one of the most enjoyable and creative episodes I've ever played. I really liked how you managed to turn a platform game into a simplistic puzzle game, while it still has a plot. And I guess you are the only person who doesnt fuck the design up when they trying to make puzzle levels. Furthermore, this whole thing has a bunch of awesome and fun gimmicks. I loved it man, I loved it!

Thanks. It's these kind of comments that make all the effort worth it. I guess there were no major bugs on the way then. The testing was a bit more extensive than for the first release.

I think the only bug thus far is that if you screw up, you're automatically forced to die. I would make a restart door. However, I am on world 2, the ice one, and am immensely stuck on the one where you have to hit the switches to make the bubble go right/up/and then left.

Today's goals:
-Beat the chapter I'm stuck on.
-Triumph the stupid boss.
-Carry on to world 3.

This is one of my favorite episodes. You think at very good obstacles and you have checked very well the difficulty. Also I like the musics.

Okay, now that is a pretty neat episode. The puzzles, while simplistic at first, are surprisingly well crafted (considering SMBX's a platforming game) and pretty fun to play, and it's definitely refreshing to play after all the more platforming-based episodes. And yes, this is a revamp of Koopa Reign of Terror, Murphmario; it's written on the first post. :P

Koopa Reign of Terror was easily one of my favorite smbx episodes. I loved everything in it from the graphical components to the pure challenge that comes strictly from level design. This is great that you made more levels that I can challenge myself with. The world map looks great.

Puzzles. What I really need in my life is a bit of logic. Now, this is one great episode. I've played "Koopa Reign of Terror" and I liked it much. I just feel I could play it again with the title of "Super Mario Enigmatic". Why? Because it's revamped? Because I'm desperate to see something evolutionary?
No and definetely no. It's because I enjoy it so much I could just play all those puzzles over again. You're awesome Reign, and I hope we'll see more of your masterpieces in the future.

I deeply promise though that this is absolutely the final revamp this episode will ever see. I'm finally happy with it. :p

wow. so this s the only version of your episode that I have played so the concept is new to me. I have to say that I was very impressed. I have never experienced such an odd combination of fun and udder frustration. the level lengths allowed you to do some really neat stuff that would be too difficult in a normal length level.

the puzzles are almost all more clever than anything I have seen in smbx before. great job reign!

It is a redone Koopa Reign of Terror. Compared to the original, this one has a proper story, a world map, 20 new levels and 1 new boss fight, and numerous adjustments in the previously released levels.

Thanks for the reviews, everyone. :)

What is the intended solution for the

poison mushrooms, mushroom blocks, and green switch level in the jungle?
I think I know, but I've lost enough lives due to player error to be unsure.

EDIT: Never mind, power of posting and such.

My playthrough
I have to say, this was a fun game to play. Although only one episode is uploaded for now, I did record 5 last time I played that'll go up for the next few days.

Gasp, it's featured. I waited all my life for this moment *sniff*. Well, almost. :) Thanks for all the support, this gives me a lot of motivation for the new episode I'm working on.
