Review by Jabberwock
When Super Smash Brothers was originally released, it was a smash hit, and since then it's had many successors, official and otherwise. In particular I've seen quite a few such games attempted with Game Maker, some decent, some terrible, but Super Bash Bros Ultimate is one of very few I've ever seen completed; that alone says something about the author's dedication and in turn the quality of the game.

The gameplay is fairly elementary Mario-style platforming, except with two players and a rather annoying control setup. Essentially, You jump on each other and collect and use a variety of fairly typical (with the exception of one or two slightly stranger ones) Mario items. It's nothing stellar, but there are very few bugs, and just so long as you have someone to play against it can be a lot of fun. Besides the main game, there's also a wide variety of unlockable minigames, some of which are fun, others of which are sort of boring.

It's really the quest for unlockables that's the driving force of the gameplay in this game, especially if you have no one to play against; fortunately, there are quite a few of them, from the aforementioned minigames to maps and characters.

The graphics and sound are ripped, so you'd expect them to be consistent; unfortunately that's not the case, as they're ripped from several different Mario games whose styles all differ. I'm not a big fan of ripped graphics to begin with, so for me this was a real turnoff. Just because it's a Mario game, doesn't mean you can't be original with it.

At first glance, this game seems hardly worth the trouble of downloading; however, under the game's rather flawed exterior is a solid core engine (with support for two players to boot, something I've found to be unfortunately pretty rare among Game Maker games), and if you can look past the fact that this is yet another Mario clone with ripped media, you just might be able to have some fun with it.

Great, except that the controls are a little hard and that the "classic" mode isn't anything like the classic.

Having complete and utter respect for MDS-Games and the help he has given me I have decided to set up a permanent mirror on my webserver for those who are struggling to download it.

Thanks for all the help you gave me in the past :D I hope this more than covers it.

Okay. I've uploaded it on my 64digits account; if the author takes issue with that he can upload it elsewhere himself.

Believe it or not, we're very busy people. We aren't ignoring the error reports, but there are tons of error reports queued up right now, so sometimes we don't notice particular ones. I'll try to create a mirror later.

Ouch... I expected a bit better rating for my game. bwt, I apologize for the control set-up, because I know that most people have a problem with it. Anyway, thanks for all your comments guys.
The download from my site should work fine, it's just a little slow because it's the cursed freewebs(augh!).

Good game! I like the Classic Mode, but the gameplay isn't like the real Mario Bros games ... And it's hard to control! XD

Note : To download the game, you must get it from the site!

I find this game to be very entertaining! I like how there are lots of unlockables to, well, unlock, to make the game more fun. I hope other people can follow this example and actually finish a SSB game!

This game is ok. I think it could have been made to be better though, like giving all the characters at the start insted of 'unlocking' them. I just found it a bit boring after 5 mins.

'Not Found' WTF!?!?

I think I preferred the original Super Bash Bros (being one of the first GM games I ever downloaded, and it was so professional!) but this is an improvement in every way.

The mini-games were incredibly hard, but very clever. The controls are very hard to master also for all games. The graphics were great, because most of them were obviously ripped. The music was good enough to like for the first 3 minutes, but after that it gets a little obnoxious. Again on the minigames, you should really consider making those a little easier. I literally tried 1,000s of times on the Yoshi one, and 100s on the 'classic'. This is the sole reason why you get a 7 instead of a 10. But the 2p was good, I like.

Excellent 2 player game! I don't play the minigames much, but the VS. mode is so fun with so many levels and so many power ups... I wish I could make a game as good as that. Good job!

ReapiredPots,
The sound of the music changes with differen't sound cards since it's midi, so you just have either a bad sound card or yours is special and makes midi's sound differen't than they do on my computer (I have Microsoft Wavetable, or whatever XP comes with).

This game is pretty nice. Although I wish the music was a little better but other than that .. It was excellent!!

Thanks for the feedback guys!

I JUST FIXED THE PROBLEM WITH THE SECOND MINI GAME, so you'll have to download it again. Sorry about that. You can still keep your SBBU.sav file though, so you don't have to start over again with the unlocking.

Super Bash Brothers Ultimate –REVIEW-

Gameplay

The difference between this and real Mario is that when you get hit you don’t have to start from the beginning, you simply just lose a life until they are gone and then you start again from the beginning. Apart from that the gameplay is the same as the originals and that is what counts. The multiplayer never ceases to entertain and it is this feature that I am sure will blast this game into stratosphere next to Johnny, hardhat and all the other Gamemaker legends.

4/5


Sounds and music

The sounds are all very marioish and although were ripped from Mario others were made by MDS and they fit into the game perfectly.

4/5

Graphics

What would Mario be without bright cartoony graphics. This game contains just that and they somehow look a lot better in this game than in the originals

4/5

Presentation

The menus are perfect. I liked everything about them and the way that they all look like the ones from SSB just like was intended.

5/5

Overall

This game is brilliant. The 2 player is where this game really shines and I am sure that anybody who uses Gamemaker cannot ignore this game and if they do the they don’t know what they are missing…

4/5 – A nicely made game that will appeal to any fan of Mario…
