Super CLASH Bros is an indie platform arena brawler akin to Super Smash Bros. It’s also known as Mario V. Sonic: Dawn of Clash Bros.
It’s a game that sports a roster of classic characters like Mario, Sonic, Link, Mega Man, Luigi, Bowser, Tails, and even Yoshi (with Mario). The characters use attacks and moves that mimic their original skills from their respective titles.
Besides the signatures abilities, they also retain the same control scheme, HP bars, and even power-ups from their home series. Mario can whip out Yoshi and Mega Man can jump and shoot while Sonic uses rings as his HP. If you want originality to the extreme, Super CLASH Bros delivers.
Although this can cause some gameplay imbalances, it is a fan-made SSB spin-off so you can’t expect it to be competitive. It’s for screwing around and having a good time. If you like Sega and Nintendo and SSB, this game can’t be skipped!
Remember back then in the 90s there were daily heated debates about Sega vs. Nintendo? Sega does what Nintendon’t? Blast processing? Who would win: Mario or Sonic?
This game was made to answer (some) of those questions. Super CLASH Bros takes the characters directly out of their original games and pits them against each other in a variety of Mario-themed levels and some other ones (Mario must be the home team), and has them duke it out in an all-out battle of the epics!
There is no character-balancing or design balancing. Some characters break the game and some attacks are just overpowered. But that’s the fun of it. The game features a total of seven characters to choose from and some extra skins for each character.
For example, you can dress Mario up in his 8-bit or 16-bit versions. As mentioned earlier, the control scheme for each character remains identical so it retains the classic controls. They also have their own HP bar and abilities lifted straight from their respective series. You can even use power-ups from crates that give a special ability to your character kind of like Smash Balls in SSB.
The game is nothing more than just a little fan-made simulator to answer all you and your friends’ questions about different characters from different games going against one another. It’s a blast to play with a buddy and if you two are hardcore nerds (kinda like us), you’ll have a very good time. It has local multiplayer and answers the age-old question of what would happen if the characters were kept accurate to their original games? It also supports gamepads which is recommended.
Super CLASH Bros can be played on the browser so no download is necessary. But I suggest downloading it for better gamepad support and performance. The Unity web-based version is super glitchy. Use the link below to play it.
