Everything You Need to Know About Super Mario Run
Super Mario Run is Nintendo’s next venture into the mobile gaming market. So what will the first mobile Mario game be like?
Super Mario Run is a side-scrolling auto-runner platformer. It isn’t the same as an endless runner, as it is divided into separate levels. However, you cannot control Mario’s movement. He runs automatically, and you tap the screen to make him jump. Touching the screen for a longer amount of time will make him jump higher.
There are 6 worlds and 24 levels in the main World Tour mode. There is also a second mode, Toad Rally, where you challenge other players and compete against their playthroughs of the game’s levels.
Finally, a third mode called Kingdom Builder lets you build and customize your own kingdom. You can get items for your kingdom by spending coins earned in the World Tour and Toad Rally modes. Toads impressed by your skills in Toad Rally will also come to live in your kingdom.
Super Mario Run will be available for iOS devices on December 15, 2016. An Android release will follow at a later date.
You will be able to download the game for free and try each of the three modes. The full game costs $9.99.
