Key character, Mario, crosses those kingdoms following his way and overcoming obstacles. His walk has a lot of frames, and there are a lot of movements.

The player navigates the main character through all those routes every time choosing one of those which is better in order to reach the goals. There is another character Luigi. Usually, a player is to control Mario, but he can do it with Luigi too.
