In this game, Mario constantly moves forward through the courses while you use a variety of jumps 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.

Whether or not Super Mario Run is worth a purchase depends on the player. Anyone looking for a full length sidescroller for their mobile device will be sorely disappointed. This isn’t that and Nintendo never said it would be. On the other hand, ample respect must be given for skipping microtransactions and just selling the thing straight up for a reasonable price.
Yes, I wish it had more levels and less town-building, but Super Mario Run manages to feel like real Mario game even with only one button. It’s great to see that Nintendo is able to do so much with such a simple idea that most iOS users can easily pick up and enjoy.
Super Mario Run's lack of offline play is a bummer, but otherwise it's an engaging experience that demonstrates Nintendo understands what makes for a good mobile game. Even if you're not a fan of mobile titles, it's worth a try: The initial download is free, and you can pay for the additional levels if you like what you see.
