Update December 15: Super Mario Run is now available on the Apple App Store.
The first true Nintendo game on mobile phones is called Super Mario Run and is shown almost as exciting as its price was scary when it was presented alongside the iPhone 7. Even created by Nintendo, a runner can be worth 10 euros? Although the game will not be released until 2017 on Android, we had the opportunity to try the iOS version to a few days of its release in order to answer this question.

Super Mario Run, courses:
As the first images of the game left him quickly–as well as his name-, Super Mario Run (SMR) is a runner-game in which the most famous of the protagonists of video game runs alone without stopping in horizontal scrolling. The only interaction the player is so to press the screen at the right time to jump to avoid obstacles and enemies… and yet, the gameplay turns quickly much richer than it looks.
First, the height of the jump depends on the time of pressure on the screen, but all the subtlety of the game lies on a question of timing. Wall-jump, double jump twisted, jump on an enemy… the movements are ultimately many despite the very simple one-touch principle and we quickly understand that Nintendo has worked to bring his game respects the law of Bushnell: “easy to learn, hard to master” (easy to learn, hard to master). Besides the difficulty quickly climb and one quickly realizes that the two available by level additional lives are not superfluous.
A respected myth:
At first glance, we see that Nintendo has not sold his soul to make money on mobile. The license is respected in many areas and there is a well known technical leg. The graphics are treated, recalling those of New Super Mario Bros., the soundtrack is enough to revive the nostalgia of the first hour from the first notes and the level design keeps a complexity worthy of the opus on consoles.
Indeed, it is not uncommon to have the choice between several passages that need to memorize each level to finish at 100%. They also hide their share of secrets. Let slide you along a wall in what seems to be a deadly hole to discover a hidden room and a platform to get back on the path.
Finally, we find usual levels, such as the haunted house and its random doors or its full of lava castles with happiness.
(It’s a bit) short young man
It is also where the main interest of the game certainly lies. With only 24 levels ending in about 40 seconds each (90 at most knowing that it is the basic of the timer limit), we can imagine that a good player can complete the “Tour of the worlds’ (main mode) mode in half an hour in a straight line. Yet, he will have only grazed the essence of the game which is far from limited to.
First, each level cache 5 pink coins to collect. Once they have recovered, a new variant of the level unlocks, containing this time parts violets, harder to recover, then finally a third alternative with black pieces. Suffice to say that complete the 72 variations of levels should take a long time, even for the most experienced players.
Finally, the fiercest will also try to redo the levels with other characters as Mario, since it is possible to unlock others. We find for example the classic Toad – which runs faster – and Luigi – who can jump higher.
My Kingdom for a mushroom!
Must also see that SMR is not fashionable tower of the worlds. To put the game in its context, Super Mario Run resumes the cliché of the baseline scenario of the games of the plumber/gardener/hero mustachioed, namely that Bowser has been there, has destroyed the Mushroom Kingdom and captured Peach, who once again plays the dam’ saddle distressed. In addition to jump on the Goombas and the Koopas to save the Princess in pink dress, it will also rebuild the village of the Toad. And for this, you will need… Toad (s).
Playing in the Adventure mode, you will unlock parts (which are used to purchase items to place in the village), but also tickets to play mode challenges Toad. Here, the principle is similar to the base game, but levels take end that once the countdown reached zero. During the 90 seconds granted, the player must then collect a maximum of coins, but especially to perform a maximum of movements that will impress the Toad and push them to come rebuild your Kingdom. Suffice to say that it should keep busy you a time…
In order to make life easier for players with several terminals, Nintendo offer to bind his Nintendo Network account to the game in order to save his progress and find it on all its devices. When the game will be available everywhere, we can thus start a game on an Android smartphone in the subway and continue on my way home or on his iPad.This identifier allows also to find friends online to confront them, but also to get some new items.
