[edit] Storyline

Vibe Island (a land adjacent to the Mushroom Kingdom) has been rumored to hold hidden powers. Bowser builds his summer villa there in hopes of harnessing the rumored power. His efforts are rewarded when one of his underlings finds the Vibe Scepter. He sends a Goomba and an army of Hammer Brothers to Princess Peach's castle to capture Mario. The Vibe Scepter changes the emotions of those around them - they will become calm, happy, angry, or sad. While all of the Toad servants are distracted, the Hammer Brothers seize Mario, Luigi, and Toad. Shortly after the capture, Princess Peach and Toadsworth come back to the castle to find a message saying that Mario has been captured. Peach wants to go out there immediately. Toadsworth tries to convince her not to, but when he sees that she is determined to go, he gives her Perry, a talking umbrella that has magical powers. In the game, Peach and Perry battle through seven stages (Ladida Plains, Hoo's Wood, Shriek Mansion, Fury Volcano, Wavy Beach, Gleam Glacier, and Giddy Sky), rescuing Toads along the way, before saving Luigi from the evil wizard Kamek and proceeding on to Bowser's Villa. Meanwhile, Perry's origins are revealed through in-game flashback sequences. Perry remembers his origins as a young boy who had mysterious powers and was adopted by an old man he came to call "Grandpa". He was changed into an umbrella and kidnapped by a wizard and his henchman, but managed to secretly escape by wiggling free from his captors and falling on the road. Some time later, a traveling merchant found him and sold him to Toadsworth. Peach and Perry confront Bowser, who uses the Vibe Scepter to grow enormously. Bowser is still defeated by the princess and Mario is saved.

[edit] Gameplay

On the upper left hand side of the screen, there are two bars. They are the heart guage and emotion meter. If Peach falls down a hole or gets hit by an enemy, she will lose half a heart. When all hearts are gone, she (well you) will have to start over from the beginning of the level. Peach has infinite lives, so you can continue as much as you want. The emotion meter responds to the four powers she has. The DS touch screen displays the four moods. They are joy, gloom, rage and calm. When you tap on a mood, it will activate a different ability. Those abilities can help you solve problems and defeat enemies. But there is a downside. It reduces your emotion meter. The bar can be gained back by capturing the blue turquoise jewels. Some abilities are: --- Calm --- Gloom --- Rage --- Joy With Perry, Princess Peach has many abilities. If you just stomp on the enemies, you did not defeat them yet. You must use the umbrella to whack them off. You can either press "B" to quickly sweep them aside or "Y" to put them on top of the umbrella. As you go throughout the game, Perry gains new abilities. The Subrella you obtain in the game allows Peach to travel underwater. You blow into the mic to blow bubbles to defeat the enemies you see. The Slidebrella you obtain turns Perry upside down and uses his handle like a hook. The Bowlbrella you obtain puts Peach in the umbrella and allows her to go through surface water. The game has a shop where you can buy things. The currency is coins. You can buy upgrades to expand your heart gauge or the emotion meter, along with three new abilities. The Floatbrella allows Peach to stay in the air for about five seconds. The Poundbrella pounds the ground and stuns any enemy close to you. The Chargebrella makes a small charge that will stun the closest enemy. The game's levels play like any normal platformer. There are eight worlds. In each world, there are six levels and one boss battle. For every boss you encounter requires a short minigame to play.
