X-tie's Super Smash Brothers (N64)

Playing this game the second time around, I found myself much more competitive. I wanted/needed to beat whoever I was playing. I felt hostile if I lost a life and continued to play like that until I won. I did find that one of my favorite characters to use in this game is Pikachu.
I'm not sure if there was an actual progression in the game, but playing this game in multi-player mode was much more fun and interactive. Even for those who weren't playing the game, they still cheered on whoever they wanted to win.
I must say, that I didn't care too much about unlocking other characters after I had played some rounds in the multi-player mode. After that I wanted to see how it would be to play as other characters, which is when I started to play single player mode to unlock the characters.
The design elements that make this game challenging is it's platform, falling off and loosing a life can lead to a disadvantage, sudden outburst of anger, which may leave you vulnerable to another attack. I think the game kept me interested because of it's competitive nature. I thought the design elements were great, each arena was made specifically from the characters origins.The level of game design is brilliant, because beating the levels will unlock another character that can be played.
From this game, I got the idea to perhaps put in a platform arena that the character in my game will face. If the character in game falls off and looses his life then he'll have to return to the start. Or to setup some sort of levels he will have to defeat to unlock something useful in his quest.

The object of this game is to knock the opponent of the platform,each platform hangs in the middle of nowhere, and you must knock all the other characters off the level to win. There are eight characters to choose from initially, and four more hidden characters to unlock.Super Smash Brothers can either be a one player or multi-player game.
This game is a lot of fun to play. I thought the characters stayed true to there forms from their original games (weapons, armory, powers, etc). At the beginning of this game I started off a bit agitated because I couldn't figure out which buttons did certain actions for my character. Struggling to figure out which button does what before I got knocked off the platform was a little stressful, but as the battle continued I found it easier to play and knock off my opponents to win this games.
Social interactions with other players is competitive because in the multi-player mode you're all competing to win. You can set a time limit and the number lives each player has in the game. I thought this game was very interesting to play and bring people, it's very enjoyable. And the game keeps your interest because of the different settings/platforms and the option of choosing a different character to play.
