Super Smash Bros. is a four-player brawler that pits popular Nintendo characters in comical combat situations throughout well-known locales. Fighters include Mario, Link, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Samus Aran, Kirby, Fox McCloud, Pikachu, and four bonus characters waiting to be unlocked. You'll battle outside such venues as Hyrule Castle, Yoshi's Island, the Congo Jungle, Planet Zebes, Sector Z, Peach's Castle, Dream Land, and Saffron City.
Two modes of play include solo and versus options. Vs. Mode lets you challenge up to three friends in four game types: Stock (limited number of lives), Stock Team (teams share limited lives), Time (knock off as many players as you can within the time limit), and Time Team (timed team battles). The single-player option features bonus rounds, boss battles, and unusual fighting situations across 11 levels. You'll take on multiple Yoshis, try to knock over a gigantic Donkey Kong, and even slug it out against an enormous hand.
In addition to each character's distinctive moves (such as Mario's fireball or Samus Aran's screw attack), various weapons and power-ups can be used in each stage. These randomly appearing items include beam swords, baseball bats, fans, turtle shells, hammers, and more. Your goal throughout each stage is to knock rival characters completely off the playing field. Basic moves include throws, shields, projectile attacks, and melee attacks. Progress is automatically saved to cartridge, and the Rumble Pak accessory is supported for vibration feedback. ~ Shawn Sackenheim, All Game Guide
