Super Mario Run was recently (23 Mar) launched on the Google Play Store, following a successful outing on Apple’s iOS Store. It is made by famous publisher Nintendo and looks all set to be one of the highest-grossing games of all time. According to an official tweet from Nintendo, the developers released the game earlier than expected.
The game was released first on iOS in December and made Nintendo over $50 million in sales by the end of January. It has been downloaded on iOS over 80 million times till date.
What’s the Game About?
The Super Mario Run game is about a plumber called Mario navigating through dozens of distinct levels, collecting coins and power-ups along the way. It has a cast of other playable characters, like Princess Peach, too. You can also build a virtual mushroom kingdom, and there’s lots of content in the game to get you to come back to it daily. Mario is one of Nintendo’s biggest success stories and brings up fond memories for video gamer from around the world.
Do you have to Pay to Play?
Unlike Pokémon GO and other games that offered in-app purchases and let you play for free, you have to buy Super Mario Run to progress beyond a certain point. You can download and play the first three levels, but you have to pay $10 to unlock the levels after that.
Is it Worth the Asking Price?
Most of the major game reviewers have rated it to be satisfying. IGN, for example, has given it an 8/10 rating. Gamer seem to be satisfied with it (it gets download close to 70,000 times a day), too.
However, according to the sales figures, only about 5% of all people downloading it are paying for it. That tells us that either the game isn’t as good as the hype surrounding it claims it to be or that they don’t want to fork out money to unlock additional content.
Only time will tell if Super Mario Run will be as successful as top-grossing games like Clash Royale. If you own an Android device, Our Mobile Application developer will help to download it.
