DescriptionMario, Princess Peach, Toadsworth, and Toad have come to Isle Delfino for some relaxation. Upon arrival, however, they discover the island has been polluted causing its energy source, the Shine Sprites, to disappear. The culprit is similar in appearance to Mario, who is blamed for the mess, so the portly plumber is forced to clean up the island. Mario is given an invention called FLUDD (a backpack with several water nozzles) to help him clean up graffiti and mud and capture the real villain. Gameplay features a combination of action and puzzle solving, with numerous stages and multiple episodes to each stage, and plenty of hidden secrets and surprises.

TriviaIn the attic of the Hotel Delfino, the janitor complains about the ghosts, wishing someone would come and "suck them up in a vacuum cleaner". This is a reference to another Gamecube title, "Luigi's Mansion", where Luigi did indeed suck up ghosts in a vacuum cleaner.
