Super Mario Run Gameplay
Playing Super Mario Run can be done even by using only one hand. Controlling Mario involves a series of tapping while he runs. Needless to say, a single screen tap will make Mario do a short jump while a longer jump means a higher one. These controls must be used by the player in order to complete an area or a dungeon level. It’s interesting to know that, during the company’s press event, two different locations are revealed namely, the grasslands and boss-level castle areas.

Unlike level-based challenges, the Toad Rally challenges are endless provided with a timer that aims to force the player get a high score in order to win the challenges. Earning scores include getting coins or impressing toads within the game. Toads can be obtained by accomplishing impressive feats, therefore resulting to toads becoming new citizens to your own Mushroom Kingdom. Eventually, you can use the accumulated coins in order to customize your kingdom as you like.
