Super Mario Run tip and tricks

Unlock all the characters

Although Mario may be in the title, Nintendo did bring along a couple of other familiar characters from the franchise to the mobile game. His younger brother, Luigi; the friendly dinosaur, Yoshi, the regularly kidnapped Princess Peach, and more are all playable characters in Super Mario Run. You just need to know how to unlock them all, and we'll show you how.

How to win Toad Rally

Toad Rally is one of the modes in the Super Mario Run and while playing it is essentially the same as playing the World Tour mode, winning at Toad Rally takes some knowledge. Winning at Toad Rally helps you build up your kingdom, unlock different playable characters, and even gives you bragging rights among your friends; it's what separates the casual gamers and the hardcore fans!

Of course, competing in Toad Rally means you need Toad Rally Tickets, so naturally, we can show you how to get more Rally tickets than ever before!
