Super Mario Run will have three game modes and is said to be designed so that players can traverse the worlds in the game with just one hand. The first game mode will feature a classic style Mario experience, where the objective is to reach the flag at the end of the level by overcoming obstacles. While other mode titled “Toad Rally” sets the user the challenge of beating another players’ score on a set level. The final mode allows players to “Create your own mushroom kingdom” using the coins they will have gathered on the two aforementioned modes.
For those like myself, who haven’t owned a Nintendo console for quite some time (the last Nintendo console I owned was the Gamecube) Mario games will no doubt be one of the franchises that players have been dreaming for the unlikely day that the game goes cross platform. While Super Mario Run is hardly likely to match up to the quality of classic Mario games; saving the day as that Italian plumber with the worlds best moustache might be one of the best nostalgia trips we will ever experience.
