When Nintendo announced it was making games for mobile platforms, all fans are eager to get their hands on their first release. And, we’ve been waiting for past three months to try our hands on Super Mario Run Game.
Well the wait is almost over. According to Nintendo’s official Twitter account, Super Mario Run Game will come to Android devices on Thursday, March 23rd i.e. tomorrow. Assuming that the game uses the same format as it is seen on iOS, Super Mario Run will be free to download and try, but for access to all ten worlds players will need to pay $10 in a one-time in-app purchase.
Super Mario Run Game will fit into broadly in the auto-runner genre, like Ubisoft’s Rayman games that have made it to Android before. Players can make Mario jump with a single tap, though there are surprisingly complex mechanics underneath the one-touch setup. The 2D stages with 3D graphics will be familiar to long-time fans of the series. Other game modes include a basic “kingdom builder” and non-synchronous multiplayer races in the Toad Rally. Reaction on the App Store has been less than stellar – the game currently has only 3 stars out of 5 – with many complaints that the six worlds available at launch are too short. It’s available for pre-registration on the Play Store now.
