Features & Use
You run through a virtual world made of different platforms while collecting coins, avoiding or destroying enemies (in the shape of turtles and other little animals) and trying to trying to make through to the end without losing a single life. Mobile Andrio may be nothing new, but this classical jump and run game just never gets old. I enjoy this game because I like having the opportunity to play old-school games directly on my phone.
Screen & Controls
Mobile Andrio keeps to the original brightly-colored design of Super Mario and gives off a very good impression.
The controls are really simple: A main menu containing a play and help button appears when you start up the game.
By pressing the menu button you can adjust the following:
- Customize your touch screen controls
- Assign keys for specific controls
- Turn the sound on/off
- Access the high scores
- Pause the game while playing
All in all, a cute little game for killing time.
Speed & Stability
During my test I didn’t experience any problems with the application’s stability.
As far as game speed is concerned, I was very disappointed. In many instance the game was totally irresponsive to my actions. I lost many a life because of problems with lags and delayed response time. What a let down!
Mobile Andrio (Free) can be downloaded at no cost from the Market. There is also a full version available for 1.49 euros
