From The Stands :Super Mario Run

by Victoria White 

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. It is 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. Players must touch the screen to make larger jumps.The goal is to get Mario through the level, in the fastest time, while collecting the most coins, defeating enemies, and gathering special items.

Fangirl's 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 those widow-maker special coins. The game is not as easy as you think which increases its' ability to be replayed . There is a feature in the game called Toad Rally in which you compete against other players (ghost version of the player) and attempt to collect the most coins. If you succeed, you gain the extra toads to your kingdom. However, if you fail, you will lose toads so definitely 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!

  1. If nothing else can be said about the Nintendo brand, it has has at least been innovating. I'm anticipating to see what other licenses makes it way to the mobile market. Could you imagine the frenzy a Mario-Kart or Zelda game would have on the masses?? Sheeh!!

  2. Played it's fun but for $10 can't say it's worth that much considering other games out there

  3. Damn good read. I'll have to try it out.
