Green with envy

Have you ever wished that Super Smash Bros. had seen the green light of day on the original Game Boy? Here to prove that wishes can sometimes come true in some form or another is Super Smash Land, a decidedly not-endorsed-by-Nintendo take on the fighting franchise that aims to condense all its mechanics into just two buttons.

Removing the dodge, grab and block moves makes for a very different game indeed, but it's still laudably faithful in many of its features and graphical style. It currently only contains Kirby and Mario, meaning there's a long way to go for completion, but even at this stage it's looking ace.

Although there's no easy way to get take this game and put it in your Game Boy, there is a PC-compatible demo scheduled for release this Friday.
