It’s great to see Nintendo showing a little love to one of its first mobile games. Super Mario Run debuted on iOS and later came to Android after a period of exclusivity. You can play the game using one hand as you control Mario by tapping as runs forward. It can’t hold a candle to proper entries in the Mario series, but it’s a fun distraction.
Super Mario Run is free-to-play but you’ll need to pay a one-time fee to access everything that’s on offer. Unfortunately, it isn’t part of the best Apple Arcade games as Nintendo hasn’t put it on the subscription service, despite releasing it in 2016.
Mario mania has taken over Nintendo Switch recently thanks to the success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Nintendo has released Super Mario RPG, Super Mario Bros. Wonder and is planning to release Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Mario vs. Donkey Kong next year.
