Super Mario Run Hints and Tips

If you just need a quick clue in Super Mario Run, instead of a full guide, check this section first.

  • Mario never stops running unless you hit a pause block, which also halts the timer from counting down. The levels are usually 1-2 minutes long, so make sure you have at least that much time to play so that you can do your best.
  • Pay attention to anything with an arrow in Super Mario Run. Arrows will indicate where coins will pop up, areas that Mario can hang from, and generally the direction you want to go.
  • Stall jumping is useful for making precision moves. To stall jump, tap the screen to make Mario jump, then move your finger backward. The stall jump will slow Mario down a bit and let you get to those hard to catch coins.
  • If you find yourself unable to unlock a particular item, more than likely you need more Toads. The more Toads you have in your kingdom, the more items you'll be able to access.
  • Don't neglect Toad Rally. This mode allows you to challenge others and obtain points for new characters and items.
