The side-scrolling infinite runner is a straightforward but challenging game that offers a few different modes. While it came out to relatively positive reviews, some players and critics were less than pleased with the required internet connectivity and the $10 paywall that kicks in once you beat the free trial. Still, they liked that the game managed to capture the nostalgic Super Mario charm on a mobile platform.
