Super Mario Run Gameplay and Interface
The company tried to keep the old Mario feel alive but it’s 2016 and you need to have some changes in it’s interface. The faces you will see in the game will be similar to that old one, collection coins, escaping and killing enemies, these things are same in this auto running super Mario run game.
You’ll see Mario character doing some modern jumps, you can say that this Mario has been having a training of Parkour since it’s jumps are so cool.
Along with the jump style, there are few other things that have same concept but different style, like earlier you used to hit the bricks in order to get Mushroom out of it and grow bigger, this time you can see those mushrooms lying outside, all you have to do is reach them. Not only this, this Mario can stick and climb the walls easily.
The best part about this game is that you can play it with single hand and continue to do other tasks with other hand (if you want to). This is possible because the game is based on auto running concept.
At the end of the level you will be notified about how many enemies you killed in that particular level.

Super Mario Run Coins and Controls
The coins in Super Mario Run are not that boring, they have a color variation, you may find some pink coins along with those golden coins. The controls are simple, like said earlier you can play the game with one hand only because all you have to do is tap the screen to make it jump. Longer the tap, higher the jump.
Super Mario Run Bubble System
Now since this is an auto running game, players would be thinking how to get back if we want to collect a coin or bonus that is left behind, Nintendo has introduced the bubble system in iOS game as well. You can rewind your progress in a level and go back with the help of this bubble and get that coin which you left behind by mistake.
Keep in mind that going back will not affect the timer, the timer will keep on going in the same manner and using too many bubble rewind system could make you short of time and you might not end up completing the level, so use the Super Mario Run bubble system wisely.
Multiplayer in Super Mario Run Game?
It definitely has the multiplayer mode but this is not same as usual multiplayer game, the mode used here is asynchronous multiplayer where you will have to compete to someone else’s high score and try to beat them, one of the reasons why Super Mario run is always online. This is officially called Toad Rally in the game.
You cannot simply visit this rally, perform crazy stunts, collect coins. You will have to get the rally ticket in order to enter this competition mode, grab those tickets by performing in the game like clearing a level in World Tour mode. In all, Super Mario run is a game which can bind you for long.
