Hello everyone! It seems like many blogs out there on the Internet are posting about this particular game, but I felt like if anyone on this blog should be posting about this game, then it should be me.
The game in question is Super Mario Crossover! This is a flash game that you can find at Newgrounds, and for many of us, it's quite a blast from the past going back to that site. Feel free to click on the image for a direct link to the game.
A quick summary of the characters, but forgive me if I don't get all the names, though I was old enough to play all the originals I don't have nearly the knowledge that a hardcore gamer should. That being said...
Mario: Okay, this is standard, the physics seem a little different than the original, but it's a pretty good clone nonetheless, but why settle for something you've already done?
Mega Man: What? Mega Man 3 title music playing on certain levels? Charging shots? SLIDING?! I can still jump on enemies too?! This just isn't fair!
Samus Aran: Not as fun as Mega Man, but using the morph ball is cool for small areas. Also bombs.
Bill "Contra Guy" Rizer: Holy shooting in multiple directions, Batman! Lakitu doesn't stand a chance!
Link: Why didn't they use the Zelda 2 model? If they did, I'd be a little more impressed.
Simon Belmont: What is a man? This guy, right here. Grab some hearts, toss some axes, and WHIP IT, WHIP IT GOOD.
The game's free, everyone, what are you waiting for? Go show everyone that you can beat Mario with someone other than the titular character!
