By now iOS users are well aware of “Super Mario Run” and its three modes. Those who have downloaded the game for US$9.99 (AU$14) to unlock all its features may have seen that Nintendo has made certain changes to the classic game. Here, the Toad Rally and Kingdom Builder modes’ tips and tricks have been discussed to give players an edge.

The Toad Rally mode in “Super Mario Run” is very much like a multiplayer mode minus the real time thing. In this mode, players need to break records set by other players. This mode requires patience and a lot of skills. The primary objective is to not die, trying to pull of some insane move. Dying in this mode drops the score significantly, slows Mario down and resets the coin rush metre.

Another point players must remember is the colour of toads when picking an opponent. The “Super Mario Run” toads are like currency and players need to collect various coloured toads to buy stuff. If one needs a particular coloured toad, he/she must choose opponent who is offering that. Players may easily get carried away while choosing opponents. If one is not confident, pick another opponent. Losing a Toad Rally round, docks Toad totals.

The Toad Rush mode considers a lot of things including a player’s overall performance, coin collection and levels crossed. That is why it is advisable to bring style to the gameplay by mixing jumps, wall jumps etc. “Super Mario Run” players must also be on the lookout for the Coin Rush mode that lets them earn a huge amount of coins in a very short time.

Next is the Kingdom Builder mode that lets players build their own Mario kingdoms. Players need to bring all their toads and coins here. There are special houses players need to find. As per The Verge, it is a great idea to hold off the toads for houses that are dedicated to characters such as Toadette, Yoshi and Luigi so that they can unlock them. The bonus games offered in this mode are a great way to maximise payout. Hence, checking them out regularly is important.
