We’ve been waiting for this for a long time! Here’s how the conversation that went down between me and my 11 year old yesterday:
He’s grown up on Mario. Since he was about three we’ve played almost every iteration of Super Mario Bros, Mario Kart, Mario Party, etc.
When he was little, he would dress up as Luigi (he liked green) at home and wear the hat everywhere we went. When his brother came along, there were days when the two of them would do nothing but be Mario and Luigi in real life and on the Wii.
Now…he’s in middle school with his own iPad (for schoolwork, of course)…and we’re getting a Mario game for iOs! I just hope it isn’t terrible. It can’t be, can it?
I mean…look at this description from the app store:
At long last, Mario jumps into a new adventure on iPhone and iPad, this time playable using only one hand.
Even if this is your first Mario game, you won’t be able to put it down!
In this game, you constantly move forward through the courses while using a variety of jumps to navigate. Your character 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.
Super Mario Run offers three different game modes:
- The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete.
- In the second mode, you challenge the play data of other people’s completed courses. You compete to see who can finish the course with the most style!
- In the third mode, you can create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected by playing the first two game modes.
We’re looking forward to challenging each other in this game. I’m sure my boy will play it more than I will, but I bet I’ll be able to hold my own with him.
I’m sure this game will be one of our favorite iOs games.
What’s your favorite game on iOs?
