Apple-app store Mario game

Apple's press conference led off with the long-awaited announcement of a new Mario game for iOS, Super Mario Run.

Super Mario Run will be an auto-runner with players tapping the screen to have Mario jump onto enemies, over obstacles and into power-ups.

During the game's presentation, gameplay was demonstrated live while Miyamoto explained how it maintained the feel of traditional Mario titles, and could even be played one-handed. Super Mario Run offers three different game modes: - The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete. It will initially be released exclusively on Apple's App Store in December for iPhone and iPad, with it following at a later date on Android.

In Super Mario Run, your character is constantly moving to the right. "Super Mario Run" looks like a totally new game designed from the ground up to be mobile friendly.
