Super Mario Run

logo

Pros:

  • Amazingly simple and fun game to play;
  • Great graphics and animations;
  • The controls are very easy;
  • Three different modes.

Cons:

You’ll need to pay $9.99 to get the full version; You need a reliable Wi-Fi connection to play the game; there’s no offline version.

Bottom Line:

The Super Mario Run App has gathered both applauses and critics. In what concerns the applauses they come from both old and new Mario fans who just feel the game is highly intuitive and addictive. They just can’t stop playing it, and there’s always so much to do. On the critic’s side, we get the price that you need to pay – $10 – for the full version of the game and the fact that you just can’t play it when you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection.

Overall, the Super Mario Run App is a great game that you’ll enjoy playing. With their simple controls that only require one hand on two of the modes, the ability to conquer new worlds, build your kingdom and play against your friends and beat their records, this is a great bet on the Nintendo side. Despite $10 may be considered a bit expensive for many players since this is a mobile game, the fact is that it’s totally worth it. The designers work on the game is exceptional and they managed to transport the real Mario to the mobile devices. The only huge disadvantage is really the fact that you can only play the game when you’re online. And when you’re playing a mobile game, this is absolutely frustrating.
