    Super Mario Crossover

    Super Mario Crossover :) 

    been playing this for a good hour now and MAN do I love it. It's Super Mario Bros 1 and of course you play as Mario... or Samus... or Link, Simon Belmont, the dude from Contra, or Mega Man :) 

    All of them play and handle exactly as they do in their own games (though, Link can jump and do his up and down thrust moves from other games) and the power ups will do different things. For instance, Mega Man will start without his helmet. You get his classic 3 shot limit as well as his floor slide. Get a super mushroom and Mega Man gets his classic helmet was well as his buster charge ability. Get a fire flower and he gets fire shots. You should see what you get with Contra... get a fire flower and you get the spray shot... NOTHING IS SAFE!

    After each level, you can switch to a new character if you wish while the previous character you used keeps the power ups they collected. Also, Each character's game music will play instead of the classic Mario tunes.

    Seems like Megaman is pretty over powered. I imagine transplanting any of the others into his games would go horribly.

    Horrible! Simply Attrocious!

    Megaman should be able to gain abilities from Goombas, Lakitu's, Buzzy Beetles, Koopa-paratroopas, Cheep Cheeps, Bloopers, Hammer Bros., Podoboo's, Piranha Plants, and Bullet Bills.

    To deny him such abilities is a heinous crime against the blue bomber. Just imagine how awesome the game could've been had megaman gained the abilities of the Lakitu or the Bullet Bill. He'd be nigh unstoppable.

    Megaman is not over powered. Bill is overpowered.

    and totally wrong. Should of been "Adventure of Link" style. He wasn't jumping around like that in the first game.
