Fun Game, seems long, but drains battery fast

I've been playing this game for a week, and I'm in world 8. Seems to be much longer than that yet, and the worlds are fun and detailed. I immediately remembered why Mario games are so loved, because the level of gameplay and attention to detail is off the charts.

However, there's something wrong with this game when it's left in Sleep mode during the day. It drains the battery completely by the afternoon, even if I haven't played it along the day. Other games haven't done that in the past, so I'm pretty sure there's a big bug in this game that keeps the internals running at full speed even when the screen goes off. That's a big letdown for me, because I don't like to charge my console midday, only when I'm going back to sleep. So, go bark at a tree if you don't like what I said. It bugs me.
Other than that, I like the golden Tanooki mode, that allows you to barrel through everything unscather, and the fly-to-the-pole wing. I thing those were nice additions. I'm sure some fanboys are gonna hate my review, but they can go shove it.

This game is great. Don't listen to any negative reviews about it, just try it for yourself. You will be glad you did.
