Mobile Game Review: Super Mario Run


Game Overview: Super Mario Run is a side-scrolling auto running mobile game by Nintendo. Released first on iOS and will later be released for Android devices in 2017. Free to play with a game purchase that unlocks all levels. Mario automatically runs from left to right and auto jumps on his own to clear small gaps or obstacles. Player must touch the screen to make larger jumps. The goal is to get Mario through the level in the fastest time, collecting the most coins, defeat enemies, and collect special coins.

Fangirl Thoughts: The game is visually stunning with very clean lines. I like how easy it is to play and becomes quickly addictive as you are trying to collect the stupid special coins. The game is not as easy as you think which ups the replayability factor. There is a feature in the game called Toad Rally in which you compete against other players (ghost version of the player) and try to collect the most coins. If you succeed then you gain the extra toads to your kingdom, however if you fail you will lose toads so take your time and make sure you can beat the opponent that you chose. You also have the ability to play other characters besides Mario once you unlock them.


The game also lets you build up your kingdom so this added feature makes you want to make your kingdom look nice. You can utilize the coins you have collected in the runs to buy buildings. Some buildings cannot be unlocked unless you have the required number of toads.

Overall I think this is a good mobile game to have on your phone. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
