You ever had an out-of-body experience? Well, Mario and Luigi’s third RPG adventure for the Nintendo DS sees the duo having an inside-body experience, as they end up in the body of their enemy Bowser! The evil villain Fawful gives Bowser a magic mushroom to eat, which causes the scaly one to inhale everything around him. While Bowser is occupied in sucking up the Mario Bros and Princess Peach, Fawful has designs to take over his castle and rule the Mushroom Kingdom.

Bowser’s Inside Story follows the same gameplay mechanics as the last two Mario & Luigi games on Nintendo DS – a mixture of platform exploration and role playing battles against some of the franchise’s most unique enemies and characters. The handheld’s two screens allow you to control two different storylines – one as Bowser as he tries to stop Fawful, and another as Mario and Luigi trying to escape their enemy’s innards and save Princess Peach.

Actions performed in one storyline affect the other, and puzzles involve using both Bowser’s strength and the Mario Bros’ manipulation of Bowser’s insides to proceed. And with story and dialogue that maintains the same cult humour of the RPG series, it’s going to be hard to put this installment down.
