"Super Mario Run," recently released by Nintendo, is available for iOS in the Apple store.

It is the first Mario game app for smartphones, although it doesn’t have all the features or capabilities of other Mario games, according to The Verge.

Verge columnist Amelia Holowaty Krales said that the game “feels like a compromised version of the classic games” because of its one-finger operation and vertical orientation. The game offers 24 levels in six worlds, with the ability to play each level multiple times and follow different paths to earn different “challenge coins” that get more difficult to find each time a level is played, according to the Verge.

Another game mode called “toad rush” allows players to compete against each other, but not in real time, and the third mode is for building a customized version of the Mushroom Kingdom, the Verge reported.

The game was made by Shigeru Miyamoto, who announced the game’s debut onstage during an iPhone 7 event by Apple, Apple Insider reported. The app is only available on iOS for iPhone and iPad right now, but an Android version will be released in early 2017. Initially, the app is free, but play is limited without making a $9.99 in-app purchase for access to the complete game.

The game requires an internet connection for play and cannot be used without Wi-Fi or cellular data, Apple Insider noted. It is a rather large download at 204 megabytes. The game is the same on iPad as on iPhone except for the size of the screen, according to CNET. You can play as different characters including Mario, Luigi, Toad and Yoshi.
