Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the most hotly anticipated mobile game of the season is finally here â Super Mario Run has been released for the iPhone and iPad. That's right, Nintendo's beloved Mario character has officially made his iOS debut. People have been clamoring for a Mario game on the iPhone pretty much since the iPhone was first released, and now they're dreams have finally come true... to an extent. Super Mario Run isn't a true Mario game where the player controls Mario's every move. Instead, it's a runner, which means Mario automatically runs across the screen on his own and the player has to tap the screen to make him jump.
It doesn't sound terribly exciting, but Nintendo actually did a great job with Super Mario Run (check out our Super Mario Run review for more). The game is so much fun, in fact, that it's going to be responsible for killing iPhone batteries across the world over the next few weeks. If you're already a Super Mario Run addict and you're worried about yourÂ iPhone making it through the day, don't worry because we'll tell you how to save as much battery life as possible while playing Nintendo's new game.
