Old and new fans of Mario alike will enjoy this game. It really is a throw back to the old school days of Mario. It may be 2.5d and a little more colourful but it really is a brilliant rehash of 8-bit style Mario. This makes it very challenging, however, so inexperienced players will need to be on their toes! The visuals are great. Controls are mostly non-touch, but the touch screen is well utilised when it is used. This is a really neat game. Get it if you are a fan of Mario or platform games in general; you won't be disappointed.
