The Italian plumber Mario has always been a classic charachter since his creation in 1983 together with his brother Luigi and ever since Nintendo confirmed they were bringing out a Mario title for the iPhone, Mario fans have been in anticipation ever since. And finally it is here, say hello to Super Mario Run. Remember, this is the first game Nintendo have ever released that can be played on third party platforms.
Super Mario Run
Super Mario Run is Nintendo’s first try at developing a game intended for third party hardware. Mario has to collect as many coins as possible while running and cannot stop running. Tapping makes him jump and you can play the game with just one hand. One major drawback to the game though is that you need a constant connection to the web and offline playing is not available. Seeing as its possible to play this game with one hand only, it seems strange that Nintendo would do this especially for those commuting on underground and on airplanes where WIFI is more than likely unavailable but Nintendo did say they were open to the idea of playing online becoming possible in the future.
Android release coming soon
Good news for Android users. Initially disappointed with the game not being released on the Android, come March 2017, they will have a chance to download the app. There are no details as to how much the app will cost however with it being $9.99 on iOS we can expect something similar. Many speculate that the delayed release date for Android is not just due to technical aspects but maybe down to a secret deal between Nintendo and Apple giving the latter exclusive access.
A History of Mario
Every big time fan of Mario knows that he has been around for a long time and is one of the most iconic video game characters in the whole world. Think of Nintendo and it’s hard not to think of Mario. The two go hand in hand. Originally made by developer Shigeru Miyamoto, a Japanese man, back in 1983, it has become a titan in video gaming that has travelled across the whole world. The gameplay for the original games is intriguing. Both Mario and his brother Luigi are Italian brothers who are working as plumbers in New York and they have to investigate the sewers of New York after strange creatures keep appearing down there. The more enemies you kill, the more points you get.
