    "This is a retro styled indie game that is very much styled after the look and gameplay of Super Smash Bros. This should be a big hit with anyone who has played the Smash Bros games and wants a similar game on non-Nintendo platforms. This particular listing is for the Steam PC version, though it is also available on consoles."

    "The solution is good. The only thing I notices was the quality of the website was poor. The picture shown was quite grainy and the amount of ads and setup of the webpage itself seems like a site I would question on its credibility and security."

    "I was a 90's kid, so trying to top Super Smash Bros, on Nintendo 64 was going to be hard! Then came, Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion X! At first, I was like: "Oh great, another game is trying to rip off the Super Smash Bros success formula". I was skeptical, but I went ahead & played the game. I was so wrong, this game is awesome! You can be all your favorite characters, across any universe, from Johnny Bravo, to Dexter, from Dexter's Laboratory, that rocks! Furthermore, this game has decent graphics, for being released on Nintendo Wii! Finally, it's cool how there are inspired stages from each show, like Dexter's Lab, from Dexter's Laboratory, Townsville, from the Powepuff Girls, etc. Also, each character has a unique special move! I would recommend this game, 10 out of 10, get it now & ride the nostalgia train, of great cartoons of the past!"

    "I recently played super smash bros at a friends house and absolutely loved it. So, I thought I'd try to find an equivalent game for my PlayStation. Enter, PS All-Stars Battle Royale. This game is amazing! If you love super smash bros, you have to check it out. Love all of the Sony characters available!"

    "I don't find TowerFall Ascension to be a good alternative to Super Smash Bros. When I think of Super Smash Bros I think more along the lines of Teken or Street Fighter. I feel that TowerFall Ascension is more of a level to level combat game and not a party fighter."

    "Small arms is an alternative to Super Smash Bro's, but I wouldn't recommend it for small children. The controls seem easy enough but I think it's really geared towards pre teen players."

    "Bored of the Smash Bros franchise? Don't have the money to buy a new Nintendo Switch? Rivals of Aether provides what amounts to be the same exact experience without having to navigate the newest Nintendo models. Play right away with franchises and also have your friends join in easily for epic battles! You'll forget about Mario and his pals when you are fighting ancient civilizations for chance to be their new emperor!"

    "BaraBariBall may be similiar to Super Smash Brothers on some abstract level but you'll have a hard time getting past the Atari 2600 style graphics and mediocre gameplay. After trying it out I can safetly say it's definitely not a good recommendation or solution to this problem. "
