“This is the best old school Mario style game since Yoshi’s island and it will keep me happy until the new Mario game for the Nintendo DS comes out… The game play is retro of old Mario games but her new powers keep things fresh and the game ends up being pure old-school Nintendo” magic.
“Believe it or not, Super Princess Peach is a surprisingly thorough and creative take on the whole Super Mario platform thing… Super Princess Peach clearly lifts the talents of Nintendo’s designers who’ve obviously had their fair share of experience in this genre, and have added some crazy bipolar-like game mechanics that give this production its own charm. It’s a solid platformer that plays great and retains an old-school look.”
“As lovely as it looks, though, it seems to me that Super Princess Peach could quite easily have been a Game Boy Advance title. The game’s only notable use of the touchscreen so far has been to provide a quick selection of Peach’s feelings.”
