Wonder when Super Mario Run's Android release is? Play these 5 clones while you wait

5 Android game clones like Super Mario Run
Nintendo's Super Mario Run blockbuster mobile game already climbed up the ladder to reach the top spot in both the Top Grossing category and the Free section chart of the App Store. It made more money than even Pokemon Go at launch, as it is free to play until 20 seconds into the fourth level, but after that, the game is $9.99. 

This is a bit on the high side for a runner, but with 20 years of fame behind its back, this Italian plumber has earned his mettle. Apple also gains a lot from Nintendo's push into mobile, as it collects 30% of the App Store revenue in exchange for exposure to all the iOS devices of this world. What about Android, though? 

Well, needless to say, a few days after introduction, there are a bunch of clones in the Play Store to choose from, until Nintendo decides to ditch Apple's exclusivity, and release the real thing for Android. Check them out.
