As I said before,
Super Smash Bros. is not like the normal fighting game. The
object is to do as much damage to your opponent as possible,
then knock them out of the ring. The higher the damage, the
easier it is to throw them out.
manage to get some one else out of the ring, you get a point,
and your opponent loses one. It doesn't matter who or what does
the damage, the finale blow is all that counts. If you fall off
by accident, nobody gets a point, but you still lose one.
The moves in this game are
not like those in other fighting games. If you plan on playing
like that, your opponent would not have to budge an inch before
you kill yourself. All of the moves are broken down in to 5
categories jump, grab, attack, special attack, and smash. Here
are some helpful hints.
To jump use one of the four
buttons. You can also jump by pressing up on the joy-stick, but
you don't have as much control. While in the air, you can use a
second jump to save yourself after being thrown. Most characters
have a 3rd jump by pressing
Yoshi and Ness don't have that.
When you grab opponents,
you can throw them with a choice of two different styles. If
done properly, throwing opponents off the stage is as lethal as
smashing them. Sometimes it is more effective.
All you have to do to block
You can press
to move while blocking. Your shield will slowly diminish if your
getting hit. If your shield brakes you will just stager around
for a few seconds and there won't be a thing you can do about

When in VS. Mode, there are
two ways to play the game: Time or Stock.
In Time Mode, you
have a set amount of time to score as many points as you can. At
the end of the round, each player's score is tallied, and the
player with the highest score wins. If there is a tie between
two, tree, or all four players, then a Sudden Death round is
imitated. Each player is brought up to 300% damage, and the one
left standing is the winner.
In stock mode,
points don't count. Instead, you designate a set amount of lives
per player. Every time you're knocked out, one of your lives is
taken away. Once all your lives are gone, your gone. Last player
If you don't have
enough friends to get a worth while game, you can set some of
the players as the computer.
Both modes can also be
played as Team Mode. In this mode, players can choose to be on
one of three teams. The members of the same team can not hurt
each other. If you run out of lives, you can "borrow" from your
teammate's stock by pressing START.
In One-Player Mode you are
challenged by 14 levels that increase in difficulty while you
proceed. More is on this in the One-Player Game section.
