Super Mario Run is Nintendo’s first game for the iPhone and it shows. While the game itself is jolly good fun and a much-needed dose of nostalgia, there are some glaring issues with the game. There are the biggest annoyances and problems with Super Mario Run and how to fix them.

Super Mario Run game itself weighs 200 MB. But worse is the fact that it constantly keeps downloading news stuff in the background – even when you’re on 4G. For you, this might be a strict no-no.
So go into “Settings” -> “Cellular Data” and disable access for “MARIO RUN”. This makes sure that Super Mario Run never eats up your precious data.
2. How to Fix Super Mario Run Draining Battery Life
If you play it a lot, Super Mario Run is going to continue draining your battery. A way to deal with that is to switch to low graphics mode from inside the app.
To do that, tap the “Menu” button from the app’s home screen and select “Settings”.
Then select the “Options” button.
From this screen, select the “Low” option for “Rendering Settings” and “Graphics Settings”
Alternatively, try playing the game on Wi-Fi instead of 4G.
3. How To Fix Super Mario Run Running Slow
If you’re using an older iPhone or iPad, you might have noticed that the game takes a long time to load or that it lags sometimes.
The solution to that is also lowering the graphics settings outlined in the step above.
