Mischief Makers, besides being one of the few 2D sidescrollers for the N64, combined sidescrollers and puzzles, which I found to be a lot of fun.
The character Marina is engaging to use, especially her ability to shake and throw the objects in her environment. I love the quirky, distinctive design in this, the weird looking citizens and and the face blocks. Story also has a lot of plot for a platformer. Its interesting and the characters are distinctive and humorous. The game also does a good job of bonus achievements important. Each level has a hidden gem you have to acquire. I won't spoil what you get for getting them all, but it is important.
The one downside I had with the game is that one of the levels requires you to tap a button really fast a la the torture segment in Metal Gear Solid. I, among others, physically have trouble tapping that fast.
Overall, it's a great game that I miss playing.
