Super Mario Run isn’t too expensive, and here’s why

It’s the question that’s been keeping some of us up all week – is Super Mario Run too expensive? Well since it’s Friday I thought I’d put my brain in gear for a little bit longer and have a good old think about it.

And since I’ve had that think already, I thought I’d write a brief article going over the main arguments for and against the pricing structure that Nintendo has decided to use for its first outing into the mobile world.

You might agree. You might disagree. You might sit on the fence somewhere in the middle, kicking your shoes up and down and uhming and ahing about what to do. Wherever on the spectrum you sit though, feel free to shout at me in the comments below.

It’s just an endless runner


Er, okay. Is it? I’m pretty sure that it’s actually an auto-runner designed and built by one of the most illustrious development houses in gaming history. Saying it’s just another endless runner is like saying the Mona Lisa is just another painting.

Okay, maybe it’s not that bad, but you get what I mean. This isn’t some half-arsed rip off or farmed-out port. It’s Mario. It’s Nintendo. And it’s on the App Store. Dismissing it in this way before you’ve even played it seems at best churlish and at worst reactionary.

And bear in mind you will get to play it before you pay anything.…

The Thursday Find – HoverCrash

Oh hi there, Thursday. Where have you been hiding? And what have you been doing while you’ve been hiding there? Oh god Thursday, why are you covered in blood? Oh no, no Thursday put down the axe.

Okay, while I deal with this it’s probably time for a Thursday find. This week’s is a game that owes a lot to the past and a lot to the present. And probably a lot to the future. Although I’ve not been there so I can’t be completely sure.

But if you like endless runners and retro futurism then this could well be the sort of game that makes you go “ooooh, that combines two of my interests.” Now where was I? Oh yeah, the axe. THURSDAY, don’t make me hurt you!

Hovercrash

Hovercrash is what would happen if WipeOut had been created a year ago by the developers of Subway Surfers after watching Tron on repeat for about 18 hours. If that hasn’t piqued your interest then I don’t have much else to offer.

I’m gonna offer some more stuff anyway though, because Hovercrash does too. Firstly it offers more control than your usual endless runner. You’re not just swiping between lanes, you’re free to weave through the track.

And it offers something else too. There’s a risk and reward system built into the game. Lift your finger off the screen and your multiplier goes up faster. But you’re obviously in a far worse position to de…
