Super Mario Run review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Users can navigate through the various modes for free, before being asked to purchase the extended paid version of the app. The free levels available are the World Tour, followed by Toad Rally and the Kingdom Builder mode.

Users can get the Super Mario Run app for free, and choose Mario or other Super Mario characters for a fast running frenzy, in a race to collect coins and other objects while trying to reach the end point. The World Tour mode allows users to jump and run through obstacles to try and retrieve Princess Peach and save her from Bowser, and this level is 24 courses long and contains six different worlds before the end. Toad Rally allows users to try and beat ghosts to get to the end of the course, while collecting coins along the road. The downside is that users must be connected to Wi-Fi or data in order to play, and does not include an offline mode. 

The paid version of the game is also highly priced for a game of its kind on the market, but still contains impressive graphics and challenging levels.

Lasting Appeal 9/10

The Super Mario Run app is easy for most users of all ages and skill levels, however the one hand play can be challenging for younger users. There is not much of a learning curve required for non-tech savvy users, as the guidelines and controls are fairly self-explanatory.

The Verdict

Super Mario Run is a well-received game for all Mario fans worldwide, and makes for an entertaining game play experience in both the free and paid versions. The graphically impressive Super Mario Run is an entertaining interface for users of all ages and skill levels, but requires a reliable internet connection for use.
