Super Smash T.V. -- Acclaim

Acclaim brings us a SNES translation of their arcade hit Super Smash T.V. In this action packed cart you play the role of a game show contestant competing for cash, fabulous prizes, and most importantly, your life. This game contains a two-player simultaneous mode so you can join up with a friend.

NO SLOWDOWN!! Acclaim did a programming wonder as they were able to nearly perfectly recreate this wonderful arcade game. This is the best arcade to home translation that I have seen yet. Even with as many as 50 characters on screen--in the two-player simultaneous mode--slow-down was not evident. One complaint, in a game whose major attraction is blood and violence, Don't Remove Any Of It! This game keeps the action coming with the controller capable of simulating the arcade's 2 stick configuration.

This game is wild! If you like non-stop blast-a-thons then this game is for you. The amazing thing is that you can have tons of guys on the screen and there is no slow down or flicker. This game is very violent, however, the graphics could have been improved upon. If you like the kind of game that you shoot at whatever moves, then buy this. Overall it's not a bad game.

Excellent translation! I enjoyed this game thoroughly. I would have to say this is one of the best arcade translations I've seen: it is right up there with Stun Runner for the Lynx. It's got violence, fabulous prizes, and then its got more violence. Definitely a pick for Robotron 2084 fanatics, and with the smart usage of the layout of the SNES controller, you can get double joystick action. Hours of fun. "I'd buy that for a dollar!"... Heck, I'd buy that for $50.

Killing, killing, and more killing. After you finish that, there's some more killing. Then a little more killing. And, just for good measure, there's some more killing. Impressively enough, however, it's killing without the slowdown or sprite dropping one would expect with that many characters on-screen at once. Smash TV from Acclaim is a very good translation of the arcade title. The graphics, while they very closely match those of the arcade, are about average. The play control is good, and the multiple buttons of the SNES allow the player to effectivlely shoot one direction while running another. The game is overall pretty solid. If you like mass death and devastation, then this game is for you.
