Mario is Missing! is an educational video game developed by The Software Toolworks in 1992. Unlike the traditional Mario platformer games, Mario is Missing! focuses on teaching players about geography and history while they guide Luigi through cities around the world to locate missing artifacts.
The game's plot centers around Bowser, the main antagonist of the Mario series, who has stolen historical artifacts from famous landmarks around the world. Luigi is tasked with tracking down Bowser and retrieving the stolen items. As players guide Luigi through cities such as Rome, Tokyo, and New York City, they must answer trivia questions related to the location they're in to progress through the game.
In addition to the trivia questions, players must also solve puzzles and overcome obstacles to complete each level. The puzzles are designed to teach players about the history and culture of the different cities they're visiting, making Mario is Missing! a unique educational experience for players of all ages.
While the game received mixed reviews upon its release, it has since gained a cult following among Mario fans who appreciate its educational focus and unique gameplay. The game has also been praised for its accurate representations of the different cities and landmarks featured in the game.
