The famous and beloved Super Mario Run – a fun and frantic chase for hidden coins and high scores – has received an update!
Our Rating: 4/5
Available on: Android and iOS
Even though Super Mario Run makes you give up some direct control of Nintendo's mascot, it gives you a stylish, addictive platformer you can play with one hand... FINALLY!
In the new smartphone version of Super Mario, there are slick new moves and highly replayable stages that make Mario's smartphone debut feel like a parkour collect-a-thon loaded up with that good old Nintendo charm.
Admittedly, the games do look better on Nintendo's own platforms – but the elegant mechanics and great level designs make it worth it.
Perhaps the most exciting part of Super Mario's smartphone debut is that old feeling... a nostalgic blast from the past with a game we all adored! Of course, there are some new features, but nothing beats that familiar feeling when playing Super Mario Run.
Perhaps the only disappointing part of this app is that it is still pretty 2 dimensional – compared to other vibrant mobile runners, it can be a bit disappointing.
Nevertheless, Mario has never moved with more energy or grave in a 2D Mario game!
