I'm currently on level 3-4 and facing the swinging fire sticks. Very frustrating level.

Downloaded it, played it for 10 mins, realized its basically the old game but now it costs $10 to unlock it. Deleted it.

I had to abandon my quest to get all coins - this jumping off enemies at just the right moment thing is very frustrating. Probably going to stop playing the game once I just complete the levels.

As opposed to the $40-60 it would cost to "unlock" it on a Nintendo machine?

I enjoyed it for $10. I collected all the coins and have purchased everything in the Kingdom shop. The only real grind in the game is playing enough Rally to get the Toads necessary to purchase all the knick knacks.

Collecting the coins was fun and challenging when you got to the black level. That said, I don't see a need to go back to mess with it at all now, but I definitely got $10 out of it.

So far I've played through all the levels and gotten all the pink coins. Great game for the price.

Fire Emblem outgrosses Super Mario Run with just 10% of the downloads:

Freemium unlocks are dead. Dead dead dead. Nintendo just proved why they do not work, in one stunning example. The Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki reports on a Nintendo earnings call that Super Mario Run [Free] has gotten 150 million downloads, but Fire Emblem Heroes [Free] has brought in more revenue on less than 10% of the downloads. That's right, folks, we live in a reality where a Fire Emblem game can out-perform a Mario game.

Just my opinion of course, but I thought the Fire Emblem game was much better than the Mario one. And you can get a lot out of that game without spending a penny.

re: Nintendo Mobile Gaming: Mario Kart Tour coming before March '19

We can probably create a new thread for this later, but since this started as a generic Nintendo mobile thread, Nintendo announced Mario Kart Tour for mobile today but it won't be out for another year.

I haven't found a decent racing game on mobile yet. Nothing feels right on the touch screen. So I don't have much faith in this.
