It’s-a me, Mario! The well-loved plumber in red and blue makes his world debut on mobile devices - in a splash of his classic palette of vivid colors and quirky characters - to test your tapping finesse as you work to save Princess Peach from the evil clutches of Bowser!

You are always running forward and jump over smaller obstacles and enemies automatically, so it is up to you to jump up to reach higher platforms and whack those question-marked boxes with well-timed taps.

The longer you hold the screen while jumping the higher you can reach, and you can also pull off a spin by double tapping. Aim to collect as many coins that are scattered across each stage and held by enemies as possible, and rush to reach that level-ending flagpole before the timer ticks to zero!

▲ Breaking open those yellow boxes can reward you with coins or power-ups that can help you speed through the stage quicker!

▲ Unlock ‘Coin Rush’ by filling up the gauge in ‘Rally’ mode to grab dozens of coins before it runs out for an extra boost.

▲ By unlocking items such as Luigi or Yoshi’s house in ‘Build’ mode, you can play as other characters from the franchise!

From the home screen, you can either tap the green ‘Tour’ mode to play level-by-level or the red ‘Rally’ mode to compete against AI and other players. In split-screen ‘Rally’ mode, your goal is to go up against the shadow of your opponent and gather as many coins as you can while impressing Toad spectators with fancy moves. If you win, the amount of Toads who cheered you on will move to your kingdom!

Unlock new buildings and decorations to adorn your kingdom with, from classic Mario-themed items to special mini-game houses, by winning over enough Toads to level up. Tap onto ‘Build’ at the bottom of the screen to buy new items at the shop or move currently placed buildings and ornaments, and build a unique kingdom that Princess Peach would be delighted by!

Caveboy once proved himself as master of the maze. Little did he know that the very venue he proved his worth in was a trap, something he and his friends blindly fell into! Now Caveboy does not know where his friends are, only that he knows he has to find and save them!

Caveboy needs all your help in navigating different mazes. He can only go the end of maze by sliding along three or more tiles that match. Press and hold down on Caveboy and start swiping in the direction you feel is the fastest way to get him out. Some mazes will have timers to test how quick you can solve your way out, so always maintain your focus and be wary!

▲ Some mazes will collapse after a given period, so do your best to get Caveboy out of them fast!

▲ Win stashes of gold after you successfully level up Caveboy!

Do you enjoy playing endless tapping games? If so, then this app could be right up your alley! It requires patience, concentration, timing, accuracy, and determination. Do you have what it takes to put your name up in the leaderboard?

All you have to do is tap, but hold your horses because there is more. The circle or dot can only pass if it goes through the part that shares its color. If you cross a different color, then the game is over.

Also, try your hand at the different game modes: Challenges, Clow, Brick, Dodge, and many others! This is the kind of game that will have you saying, "Just once more." or "Just until I beat my high score."

Clawbert may have only two fingers, but his enthusiasm to find friends all the time speaks of his big heart! Other than being a big UFO claw machine, he has plans to find new friends as well, and it is your job to help him.

All toy creatures are hidden within the eggs inside the machine. You will only need to control the machine stick by tapping and holding down on it, and then swiping left or right whichever the way you want Clawbert to go. Once you have decided on which egg to pick up first, tap on the “Grab” button to make him catch it. Eggs take a little while to be broken, so make sure to use your coins to speed up the time!

▲ Clawbert needs coins as much as he needs his hidden friends, so empty the machine to retrieve everything.

▲ Enjoy unlocking up to 109 toy creatures, all adorable in their own way!

▲ Clear off your objectives to get the rewards that Clawbert needs!
