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!
