Super Mario Run may have enjoyed a long enough spell exclusively on iOS, but now the famous plumber is hop, skipping and jumping onto the Google Play store for Android tablets and phones. You can grab it for free now, and check out each of the three modes, but be aware that a paywall soon follows suit.
You control Mario by tapping as he constantly runs forward. You time your taps to pull off stylish jumps, midair spins, and wall jumps to gather coins and reach the goal! Ya-hooooo! The game features three modes, all of which are available to try out for free to a small extent. These include World Tour, Toad Rally and Kingdom Builder.
Run and jump with style to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches!
Travel through plains, caverns, ghost houses, airships, castles, and more…
To reach Bowser’s Castle, clear the 24 courses located across 6 worlds. There are many ways to enjoy the courses, such as collecting the 3 different types of colored coins or by competing for the highest score against your friends. You can try courses 1-1 to 1-4 for free.
Show off Mario’s stylish moves, compete against your friends, and challenge people from all over the world.
A challenge mode where the competition differs each time you play.
Compete against the stylish moves of other players for the highest score as you gather coins and get cheered on by a crowd of Toads. Fill the gauge with stylish moves to enter Coin Rush Mode to get more coins. If you win the rally, the cheering Toads will come live in your kingdom, and your kingdom will grow.
Gather coins and Toads to build your very own kingdom.
Combine different buildings and decorations to create your own unique kingdom. There are over 100 kinds of items in the Kingdom Builder mode. If you get more Toads in Toad Rally, the number of buildings and decorations available will increase. With the help of the friendly Toads you can gradually build up your kingdom.
If you find that you enjoy the game and want to splash out entirely for it, you can play all 24 courses over all 6 worlds, unlock new characters through progression of various modes, and access new features for the Kingdom Builders mode.
The full unlock of Super Mario Run will set you back €9.99 or your regional equivalent. You can download it here.
