Yes, SMBX can do many things Mario Maker can't.
Yes, Mario Maker doesn't have custom music or graphics.
Yes, Mario Maker doesn't have LunaLua or even events and layers.
Yes, Mario Maker can't do world maps or episodes.
Yes, Making a glitch level on Mario Maker will evoke the fury of Neintendo.
*COUGH* Psycrow *COUGH*
But I see it as the same concept as SMBX, executed in a COMPLETELY different way.
It has an easy way of playing online levels without taking ages downloading them.
It has features such as making anything big or winged or "tracked" or stacked, that SMBX can't do (At least, not without some weird Lua shenanigans).
It has the 100 Mario Challenge which, despite being filled to the brim with steaming hot garbage, allows you to play any level in any order from around the world.
It has a simple to use and very powerful editor.
It has a full set of intriguing and complex physics, including NPC interactions with things like note blocks and springs, which SMBX doesn't have.
So I don't see it as an inferior or even superior choice. But an alternative solution that could not be more different to SMBX, while having the same concept behind them.
I myself have used Mario Maker a lot. I definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it.
