There are three modes in the game: World Tour, Toad Rally, and Kingdom builder. Let’s discuss them in brief:
In the World Tour Mode, you run across six different locations to reach Princess Peach and protect her from Bowser. Here you run, jump and dodge obstacles till you reach your goal. During the mode, you’ll be traveling through different locations like plains, castles, airships, caverns, haunted houses and much more, something that’ll keep the excitement alive throughout the whole game.
In Toad Rally, you compete against other people around the world. Here’s the chance to show off Mario’s stylish moves and collect unlimited coins. In case your moves are impressive enough, Toads may even come live to your kingdom.
There’s also a challenge mode where you can compete against the players of different levels.
Last but not the least, the Kingdom builder mode lets you build your kingdom with the help of Toads collected in Toad Rally. Here you can create huge buildings, decorate them, manage your kingdom the way you want to, expand it and make it bigger and better.
All the modes seem impressive. You’ll definitely love to play them.
