Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is an unusual action game with RPG elements. This Nintendo product combines two franchises – Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario. This means that the title features elements of the two series, and both character forms (3D model and paper/folded) are used in gameplay. Using their unique features, you have to overcome in-game obstacles and fights, which can take one of the two forms: rhythm-focused or action-based.


Gameplay has you explore the game’s world and complete various missions, such as collecting a set number of mushrooms. Players control several characters at the same time (Mario, Luigi, paper Mario), associated with individual console buttons. The game presents you with many opportunities to use the characters' unique abilities – e.g. when escaping a huge, fireball-spewing plant, you can transform paper Mario into a kite and take the other characters into the air. Gameplay is further enriched with various mini-games.


Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam features the fans’ beloved, distinctive Nintendo-style visuals and cartoonish artwork. Do not let it fool you though, this game is not as easy as it may seem.
