Nintendo Adventure Book 8 - Flown the Koopa

Nintendo Adventure Book 8 - Flown the Koopa




Flown the Koopa was written by Matt Wayne and was the eighth of twelve in the Nintendo Adventure Books series - first published on 5th November 1992 by Mammoth Books in the U.K and by Simon & Schuster, a division of Pocket Books in the U.S.


This was the first of four books by Matt Wayne who completed the Nintendo Adventure Books series as the author of books 8 to 12.


Like its predecessor "Dinosaur Dilemma" this book was based on the Super Mario World SNES Game which had been released just before this got published.


Plot Synopsis

Sorcery Petrifies Dinosaurs

When Mario and Luigi arrive in Dinosaur Land for the annual Dino-Flying Derby, all of the dinosaurs have disappeared. The plumbers discover that Magikoopa has turned their dino-buddies into stone. To free their friends from their prematurely petrified state, the heroes must battle the vile magician - and win!

As in all Nintendo Adventure Books, you control the action. Only you can make the choices that allow Mario and Luigi to overcome the perils they face in the Magikoopa's prehistoric rock garden. Help them crack codes, solve puzzles, conquer mazes, and subdue enemies. You, Mario and Luigi must outwit a whole new collection of hardened Koopa criminals - or go down in final defeat!
