Super Mario gets his own mobile game


mobario.gifEr.. but it’s not strictly sanctioned by Nintendo, as far as I can make out. Mobario is one of the games being offered by new ad-funded mobile games site Hovr, which lets users download games for free, as long as they don’t mind viewing adverts before and after playing.

Anyway, Mobario stars a plump plumber who has to run along a bunch of colourful platform levels, collecting coins, bashing blocks, jumping on turtles and snagging bonus mushrooms. Sound familiar?

The game is developed by Aquajava – you can download it here. Nintendo hasn’t so far licensed any of its famous characters out for mobile versions, so it remains to be seen what they think of someone else doing the job for them.

That said, the Hovr service itself is pretty good, since besides the free games, it also offers social networking aspects, such as creating a profile and comparing high scores with other users.

Oh, and we’ve also got a video of the game in action.
