Play as a large green, blue and pink blob like man in this jumping and running platformer that takes very clear inspiration from the Super Mario Brothers franchise. Exclusive to Android Super Androix is a simple free title that is intended to be played over short game bursts.
Super Androix is not shy about hiding it’s Mario inspiration with mechanics that anyone that has played a Mario game will recognise. You’ve got the map overworld where you’ll select your next level and to the credit of Super Androix there is the occasional fork in the road.
Within each level a variety of stone, cave and open levels await players where they’ll move their green (with no power ups) character from level start to end. Along the way you’ll acquire power ups to give you extra durability, the ability to shoot fireballs, iceballs and a temporary shield.
All of this will help you counter enemies which include very recognisable designs, including a ladybug with a shell that can be picked up and used to dispatch extra enemies. Boss battles are more creative though and can be quite challenging for the first few encounters.
Other mechanics within Super Androix include long range jumps (while running) and hidden power ups within seemingly simple blocks, although you won’t find any hidden pipes. Players will also get additional lives after collecting 100 game coins, a mechanic often used by such platform titles with collecting elements.
Super Androix won’t blow you away with its gameplay and it does take a while for the levels to get interesting but its free price tag still makes it an okay time killer.
