Super Smash Bros. takes familiar Nintendo characters such as Mario, Kirby and Donkey Kong, and gets them to fight to the death. There are 8 fully-interactive landscapes, with one for each character, with noticeable links to their games. Controls are analogue-based, with different moves executed depending on the direction and how firmly the stick is pressed. Items like baseball bats, Bob-ombs, and healing items drop into the arenas at random, aiding any nearby characters than can make use of them. The game uses a fixed viewpoint which scrolls, although characters are rendered in 3D.

The one-player mode has 14 stages to work through. Up to 4 human players can do battle at once, with team play as well as all-against-all action. Hidden characters are thrown in for good measure, as are bonus rounds, and a battle to the end with a giant hand (you read right).

Playable characters include:


Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Select Your Character
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Pikachu using a thunder attack on Fox
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Start Screen
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 1st bonus stage - Break the targets - each set of targets is different for every character

Mario is perhaps the most well-rounded character of the bunch, with decent speed and a fairly powerful punch. The real question is, though, can the same moves that saved Princess Peach time and time again help him take home the championship?

This is the first time that a collection of Nintendo based characters have been brought together in one game (Mario, Samus, Link, etc.). Super Mario Kart was the first time a collection of Mario based characters was used.

Japanese Sound Differences

The Japanese version has different sound effects. For example, when attacking an opponent with punches and kicks, they sound like "thwaps". As another example, when attacking with the Beam Sword, it sounds a lot like the lightsaber from the Star Wars movies.
