Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play as Link in Super Mario Bros? Well, the guys over at Exploding Rabbit have done just that. In their Super Mario Crossover, you can play as Mario, Link, Mega Man, Samus, Bill Rizer or Simon Belmont. Each character comes with their own music and special abilities related to their respective series.
As Link, you are able to slash with your sword and stun enemies with your boomerang. As Link gains power ups, he will change tunics (white for mushrooms and red for fire flowers). However even with the ability to shoot sword beams (thanks to the fire flower), Link will still stay small and not grow “super.”
Most of the music also correlates to a specific character’s series. For example when you are running low on time, the beeping hearts will start playing along with the sped up music. Dying sequences are also the same in relation to the characters.
Another great feature of this game is you can save your progress and play later. Along with that, you can change characters throughout the game. Each level has its own character select so you don’t have to stay with one character throughout your play. Characters also keep their power ups.
So if you have a little bit of time on your hands and want to put a new spin to an old classic, I recommend you play this fan creation.
