Something sinister is afoot. When Princess Toadstool tries on a new pair of red hightopped sneakers, the shoes suddenly dash from the room with the Princess still in them. Her Highness has been kidnapped by Ludwig von Koopa to star in his basketball ballet. Unless Mario and Luigi rescue the Princess, she will be doomed to a life of dribbles and dunks! As in all Nintendo Adventure Book, you control the action. Only you can make the choises that allow Mario and Luigi to outplay Ludwig von Koopa and rescue the Princess. Help them crack codes, solve puzzles, conquer mazes, and subdue enemies. You and the Mario Bros. must outwit the Koopas at their own game- or go down in final defeat!
