In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a single finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off stylish moves, collect coins and reach the flagpole to complete courses. Another mode for the game has players compete against the acrobatic moves of other people who have completed the same course.
