Super Mario Run is now out for iOS devices, which includes iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch. The game was announced on September 7 at the launch of Apple’s latest flagship phones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Nintendo had announced that Super Mario Run will be priced $9.99, in India the price for the full game is Rs 620. If you pay this amount, it will you full access to all three game modes on offer.
However, all users can download the game for free, but get limited access to each mode in the game. The game is designed for one hand play.
Super Mario Run is a little different from the traditional game we’ve come to love and cherish. Unlike the older game you do not control the forward movement of the character, as he constantly keeps moving forward while you jump to navigate. Mario will behave differently depending on the timing of your taps, so it’s up to you to show off particularly smooth moves, gather coins, and reach the goal. The game has three modes of play:
1. World Tour – In this game mode you run and jump to reach Princess Peach and rescue her from Bowser’s clutches. You will be travelling through plains, caverns, airships, castles, haunted houses and more. You can clear 6 worlds filled with 24 new courses.
2. Toad Rally – In this mode you can show off Mario’s stylish moves, challenge people from around the world and compete against your friends. It also has a challenger 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. If you’re impressive enough, the Toads may even come live in your kingdom. You can also perform moves to fill up your gauge and launch into Coin Rush.
3. Kingdom builder – You can gather coins and Toads to build your very own kingdom. Create your unique kingdom with buildings and decorations that you acquire with the help of Toads gathered in Toad Rally. With the help of the friendly Toads you impressed through Toad Rally, you can build up and customise your kingdom to make it bigger and better.
India will be one of the first countries that will see the launch of the cult classic game on December 15. If you search for the app on your app store right, you will find a ‘Notify’ option on the game. Selecting the option will notify you when the app is available to download after the game is officially launched.
The game will be available in English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. The game will be an iOS exclusive for the time being, before it is launched for Android later on.
