    An uninspired 6-world(!) $10 cash grab made with recycled Mario art assets, that also comes with data-wasting DRM? No thanks, wouldn't even pirate.

    Pre-registered mainly for the hell of it. Most likely, I'll just swipe away the notification for when it releases, and not play it, because it doesn't seem all that fun. I plan to root my phone (again) once the stable Nougat release of OxygenOS comes around, so if I can't play it after that, oh well.

    Well, the best way to fight piracy has always been to attack legitimate users :^)

    You have to be online to play.

    You need more than just RAM to run the latest vidya gamez.

    Few things Nintendo...

    1. $10 for only 24 levels is STEEP. Thats less levels than the original Super Mario Bros.. Absolutely ridiculous price especially when there are no plans to update it. I would say $1 to $5 MAXIMUM is what they should be charging.

    2. An always online requirement for this type of game makes absolutely zero sense because there aren't any in app purchases. You could add license verification instead and while yes that can be cracked into(Im pretty sure the online requirement can be cracked too), it will stop most people.
    By having this online requirement you are: Preventing people on airplanes or subways from playing, preventing people who just aren't in the best area from playing, people with tablets and iPads that don't have data connections(which is most of them), Apples entire iPod Touch line, kids with a device they use just for games, so many people will not be able to play a fucking Mario game where you touch to make him jump.

    Maybe one of the Nintendo spys on the forum will read this or something idk, this game is an enigma.

    Jesus dude no need to be rude. Unnecessary hostility is what really makes you look like a child. If you were truly aware of ram having no impact on software compatibility, then don't claim you can't run an app because you have a whole two gigs of dedotated wam. There's more than just hardware that could conflict with the usage of an app. Maybe next time post your device specifications than complaining about your two Gs.

    The pricing is fine, IMO, but the online-only crap is really the huge problem as it forces people to be always on the web in order to be able to play it.

    Super Mario Run is a pretty impressive game for a touchscreen platformer and feels just as good as the home console Mario 2D games. Collecting the coloured coins is very challenging and fun.

    If a phone can run Miitomo and Pokémon Go then chances are Mario Run will run fine too. Just weird for so many 'your phone is incompatible.'

    Hell, I read someone can play Mario Run on an iPhone 4 and that is an ancient phone.

    That "your phone is incompatible" crap is bullshit in all reality. There was a game I played daily for several months, then one day they tell me I need to download an update from the play store. I go there and guess what, my phone is magically not compatible anymore! I downloaded an apk of the game and it ran and looked exactly the same as it did before they updated the game client.
