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!

Come and get me, bro! Dash, jump, scale walls, and duke it out against other players amongst a dark world ravaged by war and destruction. Through the rubble, a new civilization is emerging. These survivors have one goal, and one goal only – to become legendary!

You are constantly running forward, so it is up to you to avoid obstacles that slow you down or smash you to smithereens! Tap the screen quickly to make a small jump, or tap and hold to leap higher. Climb walls and towers by tapping multiple times, and collect abilities by running into the colored flames which can be activated by tapping their icon on the lower-left.

▲ Duke it out against friends and foes online, making use of well-timed taps and power-ups to get ahead!

▲ Items can either be purchased outright, or need to be found in chests that are awarded through tournaments and completing quests.

▲ Daily quests are updated every 24 hours and offer the chance to earn BroCoins for completing objectives.

Tapping “Switch Game Mode” on the home screen allows you to toggle between single-player “Solo,” online multiplayer “Ranked,” and local multiplayer “Private” modes. Practice your skills over the weekly changing maps in “Solo,” or choose to go up against other players in real-time through “Ranked.” “Private” also allows you to setup a private local game to battle friends in!

“BroCoins” - collected by running through the red clouds in each level - are used to unlock new abilities like “Suprasonic” from the abilities menu, or to deck out your character in new gear and weapons. When you are ready, tap into the lower-right trophy icon on the main screen to participate in online tournaments, and prove yourself to be the strongest survivor there is!

The traffic is drawing closer and increasingly picking up its pace. Do you duck out of the way? No! You jump over it! Prepare to tap through waves of incoming vehicles (and the odd building here and there) in a deceivingly simple game of precision and timing!

Make a character jump by tapping on them, and hold a tap to perform a double-jump. The aim is to avoid getting struck by obstacles by jumping at the correct moment, while also jumping to pick up coins that appear. If all the characters are splattered into smithereens, the game is over!

▲ Tilt your device horizontally or vertically to switch between screen modes to suit your play style.

▲ Swipe up over blocky basketballs to throw them into the moving hoop and score points in ‘Play Hoops” mode!

▲ Check the abilities of your characters and purchase new ones on the card screen.

Tap the ghost icon on the lower-left of the home screen to cycle through a variety of game modes, including beating a previous score, catching a certain number of passengers, and left versus right same-screen multiplayer!

Coins collected through the game and ‘Coinchinko’ mini-game are used to purchase new characters, each with their own special abilities. Tap the lower-left colored character icon to view your current character cards, and tap ‘Unlock New Character’ to purchase a random personality to play with. On the home screen, swipe up and down over each character to switch, and tap the double figure icon to cycle between one and up to eight to play at once… if you can!

Humankind is at stake: nefarious aliens have invaded, and all who is left to save the world is… a whale? Get ready to use that tail fin to serve justice and protect the human race, as you bounce and flip across cityscapes in an otherworldly battle of the fittest!

Controls are simple: after your whale friend leaps from the ocean, tap anywhere on the screen to launch him into the air and tap twice for a double-jump. Bounce from rooftop to rooftop, and tap the downward arrow at the bottom of the screen to smash enemies and reduce buildings to rubble!

▲ Gain extra points for collecting diamonds consecutively, but make sure not to hit the ground – it equals game over!

▲ Bounce into the various alien enemies to rack up points. Think your finesse might make a good photo? Tap the upper-left camera icon to take a screenshot.

▲ Each purchasable whale has its own special ability, such as freezing enemies in their tracks or causing giant explosions!

Attack incoming aliens by bouncing and tail flipping them into submission, and collect blue diamonds scattered throughout each stage to up your points and use to purchase items in the store. Bouncing into the triangle power-up also increases your size and allows you to squash buildings without having to tap the dive icon!

Tapping onto ‘Mode’ from the home screen allows you to choose between alien attacking ‘Arcade’ and gate jumping ‘Slalom’ modes, both of which help you to collect points and diamonds that can be spent by tapping into ‘Shop.’ Purchase new whales with unique abilities, or power-ups such as shields and speed boosters, to help you save humanity from those aliens once and for all!
