@skywake Remember Miyamoto said Super Mario Run was influenced by speedrunners? Well I think Continuous running is what makes it more challenging and fun. And I'm familiar to this style because I've played Rayman Jungle Run and Fiesta Run and Imho this game isn't supposed to be the exploring Mario adventure but this is more to do with Skills and challenging friends for better scores with the charming Mario world and I'm having a blast doing so. It has surprisingly deep elements to the game like how you obtain the tickets for toad rally U can't buy them, u have to earn them by playing and there are certain ways to get it by building a red gift house and after completing certain world You will get a '?' Block which can generate tickets overtime and you can get tickets in chests by completing the levels and worlds and replaying them to complete with different colored coins. I Really like the game for what it is 😊👍

@Kuhang
I get that I just don't really like how it plays. I'm too used to being able to control Mario's speed and direction. It feels odd having it taken away. And it's not even an issue with the speed of the game. I play a lot of platformers and I'm always moving through the stages quickly. Half of the Mario Maker stages I made were designed to be run through. But this? It didn't seem right.

Like I said, it's a fantastic advertisement for Mario. I'm also more than fine with the pricing model which is the major complaint I've seen about it. I just don't think it has nailed it as much as I had hoped. I'll give it another go when it's on Android but... after playing a bit of it I'm not as excited about it as I was. Which again is fine, I'm probably not the target consumer for this.

I’m not the target market either. I still like the game a lot though.

It’s surprisingly mario and has all the finesse nintendo games have. It plays well and is challenging and fun. Well worth it.

At first I wasn't really interested in buying this, especially at $14 CAD, but I have been enjoying it and Toad Rally along with trying to beat others' best scores has been pretty fun and tempted me to purchase this. Also I'm assuming someone added me from here, but I was wondering if Sergeant Dash is on here? (I'm かずお(Kazuo))
I've been trying to get first on the leaderboards against people on my friends list, but they've been a tough contender on 1-2

Actually, what is everyone's best scores so far? At the moment these are my top scores.
1-1 252
1-2 402
1-3 307

So far, so good!

I prefer playing the game on my iPad though, as my iPhone feels a little bit restricted in some of the busier levels. I'm enjoying the music an awful lot too, as well as the verticality of some of the levels.

I'm laughing at all these 'it isn't on Android, therefore the game must be terrible' comments around the web though.

There's a very good reason why these games always come out on iOS first... because people actually pay for them, as opposed to the ravaging piracy on the Android platform and the many, many different resolutions and specifications for the game to be tuned for.

In any case, Android owners have got something worthwhile to look forward to, even if it doesn't gross anywhere near as much as it currently does on iOS.

So, I'm really loving this game. It feels like a real Mario game, but different with a different focus.

The constantly running actually freshens things up for me, and I really enjoy collecting the pink, purple and black coins and competing in Toad Rally.

Same! I'm still having a blast with this game! I finally unlocked Luigi, and love his higher jumping ability. I still haven't even completed World 3, so I'm glad I still have a lot to do! I also need to start collecting more Toads from Toad Rally that aren't green and purple... already have plenty of those from unlocking Luigi! XD

Those are really impressive scores by the way, @yokokazuo! I can't even get close to your score in 1-2!

@Blue_Blur haha thanks! Having someone to compete against helps though since I keep on trying to improve my score. I think Toad is best for it since he is faster and saves time (some courses I finish on the last second) and automatically gets 5 coins from mushrooms since he can't take any hits. I also use the bubbles to go back and take different routes to get the most coins. Currently aiming for a perfect run on 1-2 which is about 310/311 coins I think. There are 5 other coins, but I don't think it is possible to get them without an extra bubble (and other paths give more coins)
Got 405 on 1-2 now... I missed 9 coins But it may actually be possible to get every single coin and enemy with perfect timing. Near the end of the level there are 2 Goombas underground and you need to either do some tricky wall jumps right below a pirhanna plant or use a bubble after getting past them. There are about 12/15 coins after them, but I found out it is possible to get all of those a different way with a precise wall jump. I hate that it is at the end though since it is the hardest part .
So if it is possible to get all coins/enemies then the max is 417. (Unless there is one I'm missing or I miscounted. Also I defeated 19 goombas here)

Just got a new iPhone 7 today as an early Christmas present, so I tried this game. And it might be my inexperience with smartphone controls, but smartphone controls seem to be too imprecise and finicky to work well with a platformer like Mario. Not keeping this one.

I think I may have miscounted a bit. However I did almost get a perfect game! I believe I just missed 4 coins.
Untitled

Well I messed up on the flag pole so I didn't get a new record (and I missed 3/4 coins, 2/3 of which were at the end...). However I had my star a bit longer and got some extra points off an enemy so my total could have been 416.

Okay now I don't know how I got those extra points I can't seem to get to the same place while still holding the star...
Untitled (star found here)
Untitled (where 2 goombas are that I need a star to get extra coins on)

Well after some practice I've been able to do it, just have to jump at the right time on a spring in the second room as well as jumping in the right spot in the first. Last run was 405, perfect until the end where I missed 3 coins in the second last room, double jump off a goomba in the last and following a path of coins to the top of the flag pole...
Being so close to getting every single coin possible is kind of exciting though (as well as abbot frustrating 😛) and I'm hoping I can complete it tomorrow or the day after.

@Bolt_Strike might be the whole auto running mechanics since it took me a bit to get used to. Now I'm rarely making mistakes and aiming for the highest scores I can get.

And just doing an update on highest scores again.

I'm just waiting for the game to arrive on Android. Hopefully I (as well as other Android users) don't have to wait too long.

God first.

@yokokazuo nice to see people enjoying as I am. I've already completed all the levels and completed it again will all the pink coins in all levels and I'm almost done completing all levels with purple coins and that will be followed by the black coins

So I have an iPhone and an iPad, and I have my NNID linked on both systems (so they share the same save data), but if I were to purchase the full game, would I be able to download it on the other system at no extra charge?

This is the main point of deciding whether or not I cough up the cash. I just wish that Nintendo had made it a $15 game from the start rather than make it an in-app purchase that may require a separate purchase per device. I couldn't find a clear answer elsewhere. Cheers.

@sillygostly Providing that both your iPad and iPhone are using the same Apple ID, then it's perfectly fine.

@yokokazuo: Nice! Definitely no way I can beat that now. XD I'm finding the bubble trick to be quite handy for taking multiple paths, as well. It definitely adds some extra strategy to the game, trying to figure the best path order possible.

I've also managed to get to the room you're talking about with the 2 squares of coins and Goombas with the starman a few times; but in order to do so, I have to skip part of the group of coins next to the starman ? block (I just wall kick up to the upper path during that part)... so I'm not sure how to get to the Goombas in the next room in time, either.

I also agree that Toad is the best character to use for getting high scores for his speed and the 5 coin mushroom bonus. I'm finding that Luigi's jumping ability is really coming in handy in Toad Rally, though. There's this one airship level that has a lot of high platforms that Luigi can easily reach even when a trick combo isn't done perfectly. For high scores though... I'll admit Luigi isn't the best choice. I'll still continue to use Luigi for both modes though, since, well... he's my favorite character!

@Blue_Blur Haha, I've been able to keep the star there and get all the coins now though. I just have to jump in the right places and I'll run into the second goomba right when it runs out. It only gives 3 more coins so it is probably best to only do it if going for all coins.
What I do basically is hit the block holding the star, jump up onto the slightly higher level while grabbing the star, jump again to get the higher coins and land on the Goomba, jump once more to get the other coins in the top and fall through the gap leading down along the wall to the pipe. If done correctly I should have all coins in that area. In the next area I jump off the second spring almost as soon as I touch it and do 2 quick wall jumps to get over the gap, while sliding on the wall I jump to the opposite one as soon as I get all the coins on the right side then I just slide to the bottom and take out the two Goombas. If I'm fast enough I should have gotten a 2x and 4x bonus from them.

I'll probably be buying this soon and since Luigi is also my favourite Mario character, I'll probably be using him a lot, but I'll mainly use Toad when going for the top score.

I'll write a step by step guide if anyone else wants to try it though along with some pictures. (There are a few so I'll just use links)
In the first area, wait until the first goomba is almost at the red and green stone sticking up in the background. Then jump up and jump off of both of them to get 3 coins, rather than going up, go to the end to the arrow and collect the four coins that appear and bubble as soon as you grab the third or last one. (You should usually grab the last one as you bubble)
http://i.imgur.com/ZIM3mvV.jpg
Pop when below the corridor going up and head up there getting all the coins in the room. You should have 77 leaving the first pipe. Next jump onto the spring and go up to the higher level. Hit both coin blocks in the middle to get everything and take out the Goomba. If done correctly you should have gotten them all or one may have gone over the pipe. (Waiting on the first spring for the Goomba to almost be under the blocks and jumping when ontop of the Goomba to hit the second block works easier, but wastes some time) If the Pirhana Plant has been out for a bit it is usually safe to do a full jump overtop (too early would touch it) and you should land on the last coin. Then jump off he spring and collect the coins with well timed wall jumps so you dong go over the edge. Fall back to the bottom and jump up just before the Goomba falls down, Do a wall jump flip into the Goomba as he goes down to take him out. (You flip off wall jumps for the first three before you land, you could also wait for him to fall, but this saves more time)
http://i.imgur.com/5i0IYMW.jpg
Go to the top and do a wall jump at the left corner to the right one, air spin and wall jump back towards the coins while doing another air spin. This part is tricky to get them all, but you have to do a bunch of back spin jumps (sliding to the left so you almost jump in place. It may work best to jump then slide left each time) and if you miss any, try jumping off the wall on the right side and do an air jump to get as far left as you can. You should have 118 coins here.
http://i.imgur.com/m8jkhk8.jpg
Go through the pipe and slide down to the bottom, jump over the first pipe and grab onto the second (you can jump on top to save a bit of time, but it isn't much and this way works better) and as soon as you land, jump again to hit the block for the mushroom to pop out. Do a long jump over the Pirhanna Plant and collect the four coins and bubble as soon as you grab the mushroom. (Mistimed when taking a screenshot 😛) Also an ideal time limit would be around 49-51 seconds.
http://i.imgur.com/CfKNr8K.jpg
Move up the slope a little bit before the arrow to get some speed. Pop and slide down, jump at or a bit before the arrow onto the higher ledge, you can save a bit of time if you land on the ledge rather than grave onto it. Hit the block to get a star out and grab it while jumping to the raised level, jump again to grab the higher coins and land on the Goomba, jump again to get the rest and fall through the hole at the end and go to the next area. You should have 201 coins.
Jump as soon as you touch the second spring in the area and do 2 wall jumps to cross to the other set of coins. Wall jump as soon as you grab the coins on the right side to get the other 5/6 on the left and slide down. If you were fast enough you should be shining white still as you start the slide. The effect may disappear before you reach the Goombas, but you should still get a 2x and 4x bonus from them. Jump up to the top and get all the coins, you might have to jump to the left side a couple times, but try to keep it quick. You should have 292 coins and a good time to have left is 28-31 or better, slightly less may still be fine.
http://i.imgur.com/Sy57kci.png (Also messed up when taking the pictures so my coin count is lower in these usually)
In the next area grab the coins as you go down to the slightly lower ground and jump into this area.
http://i.imgur.com/lFckYhS.png
This is where it starts to get really tricky, kelp jumping in here right at the bottom corners so as not to touch the Pirhanna Plant and drop down on the left side each time one of the two Goombas is below (right side may work, but risks the chance of falling down and moving right. I used to moved forward and get the two Goombas for an extra coin while using a bubble to go back, but I miss out on 4 other coins, if someone finds a way to get 3 coins off the Goombas without moving forward, please let me know).
Move up while avoiding the Pirhanna Plants and get all the coins, touch the arrow at the top to make more coins appear and collect those.
http://i.imgur.com/Fl6Nkmk.jpg
Drop down at the end and wall jump around here and a spin/backwards spin jump to try and get all of the coins, the ones in the very back can be tricky. It may take several attempts, but I recommend going through the pipe at around 10/9 seconds. You should have 349 if everything is done right.
The last part is also a bit tricky, you can do a backwards spin jump as soon as you see the first Goomba and proceed to jump off both or just jump off both while not going too high, next try to jump onto the arrow to make 4 coins appear and get those. (If jumping off the second Goomba goes wrong, you could go below the second platform or on top of it) Now just reach the top of the flag pole and you should have all 416 coins!

Once I get more money (just got some early christmas money in the form of a check, lol) I'll get the full version. Did enjoy it but kinda limited on doing stuff, so I'm not bothering with it right now. lol
EDIT: Ugh...hate it when I type stuff out and don't notice the errors until much later. -.-
