    I dont like Apple either but Nintendo was under the belief that their game would sell better if it first appeared on IOS first with an Android release later, it was never said how long it would take but lo and behold its finally here where its less relavent now that there are other games and even the Switch launch preoccupying people's time.

    Last I checked the mobile market is 80% Android and 20% IOS (this is probably different now but still the same area), thats a lot of consumers to be turning away from.

    Are you fucking serious? You think using one finger to tap the screen is more work than connecting an HDMI cable to your phone and TV and pair up a controller to your phone and play the game by holding it and pressing a button? What else are you using a controller for? Whatsapp?

    Who are you arguing to about this? At the time I had interest for the game just because its a completely different Mario game that never released before. For me it has nothing to do with ease of access, a good game is a good game.

    Not mine, I bricked my J7 twice while rooting it then gave up.
    Although I had no issues with rooting my S3.

    I can attest to this when I had an iPhone. People thinking that IOS is some fort knox of a device is just ignorant.

    I bet a offline version will happen.

    While I don't doubt this, I do doubt that Nintendo will make an offline mode/version.

    The reason behind the delay for Android release is not a secret contract or whatever. It is piracy and hacking. Every time any Android app is released, a lot of Russian or Asian modded APKs appear on the web. And while they are hidden behind lots of malware sites or ad.fly links, the thing is that they work. I once downloaded a modded Angry Birds Epic APK with unlimited in-game currency, thinking it was some kind of custom server. But it was not. I ended up maxing out all of my equipment and birds on my real Rovio account, and playing PvP with those birds on the real Rovio online server. And the same thing happens with all games. Plus, APK of pirated paid games also are published on mirror links etc. So, Nintendo took the time to protect the app, so none of this shit could happen. This is also why there's the need of being online even for 1-player, like with Clash of Clans. None of this crap is there on iOS because jailbreaking is significantly harder and you can't install custom apps and all of that.

    It's called 'Freedom.apk' and 'Lucky Patcher'. Those applications fake google's payment system and allow you to buy currency for free but this doesn't work in online apps so it's useless.

    I talk about real hacked modded apk of online games. ABEpic, which I mentioned, is online-only.

    Most of modded apks come from these tools or simple value editing [Memory poking]

    Lucky patcher almost NEVER works with online games no matter how old or new they are.
