In a Nutshell
Mario's first adventure since Super Mario 64, has him cleaning up Isle Delfino, while recovering the Shine Sprites. Story (from the Manuel)
Close your eyes and image... soothing sunshine accompanied by the sound
of wave gently breaking on the shore. High above, seagulls turn
lazy circles in a clear blue sky. This is Isle Delfino.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the Mushroom Kingdom, this island resort glitters like a gem im the waters of a southern sea.
Mario, Peach, and an entourage of Toads have come to Isle
Delfino to relax and unwind. At least, that's their plan... but
when they arrive, they find things have gone horribly wrong...
According to the island inhabitants, the person responsible for the mess has a round nose, a thick mustache, and a cap...
The islanders are saying that Mario's mess has polluted the island and caused their energy source the Shine Sprites, to vanish.
Now the falsely accused Mario has promised to clean up the island, but... how?
Never fear! FLUDD, the latest invention from Gadd Science, Inc.,
can help Mario tidy up the island, take on baddies, and lend a nozzle
in all kinds of sticky situations.
Can Mario clean the island, capture the villain, and clear his good name? It's time for another Mario adventure to get started!
Well in a nutshell:
You can Jump with "A"
You can pick up and throw with "B"
You can slide by press "B", while running
You shoot the FLOOD by pressing "R"
You can go into "Mario Cam" with "Y"
You can changing the camera angle with the "C stick"

Bowser and Bowser Junior (who was Shadow Mario) are defeated, Mario
finds himself back on the island. FLUDD is on the ground and says, "I
hope I was of assistance..." Then, he gets back up and he didn't die!

they will get Mario one day.
