Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros.
System Nintendo 64
Developer HAL Laboratory
Genre Fighting
Series Super Smash Bros. Series

A fighting game starring a cast of Nintendo characters. Rather than a typical fighting game with a health bar, Super Smash Bros. features a damage percentage that increases as you take more damage, making you fly farther when hit. The aim is to knock your opponents off the sides of the stage.

Each fighter has a range of standard attacks, aerial attacks, Smash attacks (charged by tapping the analogue stick) and Special attacks. Items drop onto the stage that can be used to attack.

As well as the 1-Player game where you must fight through characters to reach the Master Hand, there are also many multiplayer options for up to four players.
