Pokemon Go surprised everyone when it got computer geeks off the couch and into the real world in pursuit of Pokemon

While the novelty lasted for a few weeks, a new retro game is set to take over from its popularity and become the biggest earning mobile game in smartphone history. 

Super Mario Run launched in the Apple App store overnight and experts predict its popularity will outlast Pokemon Go… because of the whole not having to get off the couch and roam the streets thing… 

A trial of the app is available to download for free, but the full version will set you back $14.99. Unlike Pokemon Go, there are no in app purchases.  

The only downside of the app is it requires an internet connection, so there goes hours of fun on a long-haul flight!
