Also, you can switch characters by tapping the character portrait icon in the bottom right after you select a level.
2. You Can Hammer the Thowmps
On progressing through different levels, you will get the hammers that are the building tools that can help you remove the large stone Thwomp enemies crowding your Mushroom Kingdom. Open the Build menu and tap the hammer icon in the bottom right to use them.
3. Use “Pause” Blocks in Red Color
There are red blocks on the ground in each level that let users pause the timer and stop Mario in his tracks. Besides maintaining momentum with these, you can use them to your advantage as at the beginning phase, you can stop just before the path splits to know what’s in there and eventually you can use them to adjust your timing to avoid obstacles. Besides, you can use these pause blocks to hit moving platforms in just the right spot.
4. Bubble Up
You can use the bubble icon at the top of the screen to float backward and replay parts of the level. While playing, incase Mario gets hit by an enemy or falls down a gap he floats backward in a bubble and when you tap the screen, it drops back on land. We know its not good to get hurt or fall, but then the real trick is to keep moving. With bubble, you can replay parts of the level without having to reset completely, and correct the path and grab coins you missed the first time.
5. Expand Mushroom Kingdom
Initially, the Mushroom Kingdom is small and can be expanded. Red, green and blue Toads help you in expanding the Kingdom as you progress through the levels and win the Toad Rally. You can use coins to buy the Rainbow Bridge item in the special section of the Build menu shop which help in the expansion of the kingdom.
6. Redeem Mission Points
The My Nintendo button on the main menu is there to let you know your reward points that you should redeem. Hit the My Nintendo button on the main menu, followed by Missions tab along the top.
7. Miss The Jumps
Super Mario Run we all know is about Mario running and many a times we miss a jump where its required and make Mario jump where it is not required. Avoid missing the necessary jumps and going for extra unnecessary jumps wherever those are not required. If you are continuously missing the coins or falling into gaps and losing progress, don’t jump elsewhere as this will lead to opening up of more paths.
8. Mid Air Spin
If you all don’t know there is the midair spin/helicopter jump. Simply tap the screen when you’re mid-jump and keep tapping the screen to spin and get extra air. Ensure to avoid the enemy and try grabbing extra coins.
