Lep's World 3: This is what happens when Super Mario becomes a Leprechaun

If you're a fan of Super Mario, then you might want to check out Lep's World 3. It's a very similar game, but with a Leprechaun twist. Evil trolls steal the elves' gold and kidnap all the villagers. Lep is the only one who escapes and it's up to him to save his friends and family. There are 120 levels to run and jump through. Want to see how it looks before installing it? Check out our gameplay video on the Lumia 930.

Features:

  • Easy, intuitive controls
  • 120 levels
  • 18 items and abilities
  • 22 cunning opponents
  • 5 challenging final enemies
  • 4 different characters

Controls are very easy. You move with left and right buttons on the left side of the screen. The right side of the screen has the jump and shoot buttons. There are some variations you should know. You can hold the jump button to go higher. You can also jump again in mid-air to reach higher platforms.

Playing this game will feel very familiar. You can jump on creatures, hit blocks for power-ups, and collect coins. There's one general direction you're heading and there's a rainbow at the end of each level. Reach the rainbow to go to the next level. Look out for checkpoints in the middle of the levels. You start again from there instead of the beginning if you lose a life. Collecting coins helps out a lot. You get an extra life after collecting 100 coins.

There are 5 different worlds and each one has a boss level. You'll need to look out for weak points to defeat them.

Lep's World 3 is available at the Windows Phone Store for 99 cents. There's also a free trial available. There are in-app purchase available, although you don't need to buy any of them to enjoy the game. For example, you can pay to skip levels, play as a different character, or equip power-ups to run faster, jump higher, and more. This is one of those games you can play for just 2 minutes on a train or spend up to an hour at home. Give it go and let us know what you think.

Thanks for the tip, Stu M.!

  • Isn't this a kids game?
  • If you consider Mario Brothers a kids game, sure. If not, no. I don't think it is, or rather, it's just a game.

  • Hi all, here I would like to ask that I have played the same game in android phone having specification of Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200
    Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A5, Adreno 203. And now playing in Lumia 920, I feel its very responsive and fast thought 920 is dual core. I have noticed same thing in many app. What role OS plays in speed and responsiveness. 920 specification : Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon
    Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait, Adreno 225.
