You can easily break the tiles in the middle with bombs, to create a dangerous place for players

All player start with a full life bar, unlimited bullets and three bombs. The purpose is to kill the other players. This can be achieved by shooting, throwing bombs, stomping them on their head or pushing them into the pit. If only one player is left, the game resets. After five rounds, the game will end.

During the play, powerups will randomly appear. These include health packs, red bullets (double damage), blue bullets (instant kill), air strikes and extra bombs.

Development[edit | edit source]

Smash Battle was based on the battle mini-game from Super Mario Bros. 3.[1] It is written in C++ and relies upon the SDL library.
