Pixel Mayhem Abounds In New Arena Brawler Super Smash Clash
There are a few things i’d give my right arm for, chiefly among them a mobile version of Super Smash Bros Melee. Sadly, we can’t all get what we want in life. It put an extra spring in my step today then to learn that indie developer Impact Games Studio has stepped up to the plate and delivered a home run with Super Smash Clash, its own quirky and fun homage to the Nintendo fighting game franchise that brings a similarly hyperactive 2D brawling experience to your touch screen. Super Smash Clash pretty much replicates Bros beat for beat, and that’s not a bad thing. All the crazy arcade mayhem you know and love is still here, just with slightly different pixelated protagonists.
Although fighting games generally tend to be one trick ponies Super Smash Clash wisely follows its inspirations lead and expands its replayability greatly by including cool extras like a full challenge level campaign mode, multiplayer, and a bunch of achievements to unlock. The action is also pretty well honed with each character having 8 unique special attacks, a variety of powerups littering each stage, and the frame rate never dropping below 60 frames per second on devices that can handle it. Multiplayer is currently only supported over local Wi-Fi but the developer has announced plans to include an online multiplayer component soon which should inject a mega drive’s worth of video game awesomeness into the equation.
Smash Bros fans and anyone who enjoys playing fighting games in general will definitely want to check out Super Smash Clash. You can try it out now for free with the full game available for $1.99.
