Super Smash BS v0.6.1 released!

Super Smash BS v0.6.1 has been released! Click here to download it.

This version adds a new launcher, fixing the memory issues (the game now requires half as much CPU power to run as it did in v0.6.0). There is also a lower power mode toggle, allowing you to lower CPU requirements even more but increase your load times.

In addition, load times have been sped up overall, particularly when using alternate costumes.

Bug Fixes
-In Classic Mode, during the previews for the upcoming matches, characters would sometimes be the wrong size. This has been fixed.

Balance Changes
-All projectiles that could theoretically last infinite time (e.g. Kamek’s spikeball with a tall enough stage) have been given a timer.
-Link’s bow now charges.
-Link’s arrows no longer reach across the stage.

Super Smash BS – Volume 3

In Super Smash BS, there is a lot of music. All the songs are remixes created by yours truly, based on the tunes from the original games.

SSBS v0.6 will be released soon, and with it will come Super Smash BS Volume 3. This album will contain all the songs that were added in versions 5 and 6.

Here is a small taste of some of the music from the album:

Now, it’s time for an announcement. On Saturday, January 14th, at 2pm, Super Smash BS v0.6 will be released!

To commemorate this release, there will be a Level 9 CPU tournament streamed at http://twitch.tv/snuffysam, at the same time. Make sure to tune in- there will be a new character revealed at the event!

See you all next week!

Super Smash BS Bio – King Dedede

kingDedede

Today, we’ll be taking a look at King Dedede. He’s had quite a few updates since his introduction in version 0.3, and he is quite different from his incarnation in the official Smash games.

First up, his Neutral Special. Inhale does not suck opponents into your mouth. Instead, enemies will bounce off of Dedede’s lips, allowing him to quickly follow up with an attack.

bio1

 

King Dedede’s side special is Gordo Toss. The move functions similarly to its original Smash incarnation- Dedede tosses out a Gordo that bounces along the ground. Be careful- your opponents can hit this projectile back to you!

bio3

Next is his up special- Super Dedede Jump. This move will bury your opponents if you land on them!

bio4

Finally, we have Dedede’s down special- Jet Hammer. Dedede charges up his hammer and releases for massive damage. Watch out- if you charge this too much, it will start damaging you!

bio5

That’s all for this time. Next preview will be a bit of a special one- we’ll be showcasing new songs that have shown up in the newest versions of SSBS. Stay tuned for then!

Super Smash BS Bio – Kirby

kirby

Kirby has been a playable character since the very first version of SSBS. His moveset is pretty similar to his original Smash Bros. appearance, except for one major aspect- his copy abilities. When Kirby sucks in an opponent, he doesn’t get their Neutral Special- instead, he gets one of his signature copy abilities based on which character he absorbs. This is more accurate to the original games, where multiple enemies could give you the same ability.

Kirby’s Fire ability can be angled up and down, and is a great trapping tool.

bio1

Kirby’s Ice ability works similarly to Fire, but it can’t be angled, and it can freeze enemies.

bio2

Kirby’s Bomb ability lets him pluck bombs, which he can then throw at his opponents.

bio3

The Mirror ability gives Kirby a reflector for extra defense.

bio4

The Paint ability lets Kirby slash three times with a paintbrush. All three of these slashes have a deceptively huge range, and the third slash meteors opponents. Because of how strong this ability is, Kirby can only use it once before he needs to suck in an opponent again.

bio5

The Ninja ability lets Kirby rapidly shoot needles, which deal damage but don’t make enemies flinch.

bio6

Kirby’s Fighter ability lets him do a powerful uppercut.

bio8

Kirby’s Hammer ability lets him charge up a powerful hammer, which deals a huge amount of damage to opponents when released.

bio7

Kirby’s Animal ability does a slash that moves him forward. If you press the special button again, Kirby will combo that first attack into a second, more powerful slash.

bio9

The Missile ability sends Kirby flying towards his opponents. This move will deal a lot of damage, but beware- Kirby gets hurt whenever he uses it!

bio10

The High-Jump ability sends Kirby skyward! It isn’t particularly powerful as an attack, but it can be very useful for recovering.

bio11

The Suplex ability lets Kirby grab and throw his opponents. Bring them off-stage for an instant KO!

bio12

Kirby’s Sword ability lets him do a quick slash that can be comboed into and out of his other moves.

bio13

Normally, Kirby’s Spark ability creates an electric field around him. But by dashing, you can charge the ability out, and shoot some powerful projectiles!

bio14

Kirby’s Wing ability not only gives him extra jumps, but it also shoots out a feather projectile that can be used against opponents.

bio15

The Beam ability gives Kirby a powerful, long-range, multi-hit move.

bio16

The Yoyo ability acts as a long-range melee attack. Kirby can choose to retract the yoyo immediately, or hold the button to keep the attack out for longer!

bio17

The Wheel ability lets Kirby roll around the stage, running through his opponents!

bio18

Kirby’s Needle ability is very good at keeping away enemies from above.

bio19

Kirby’s Smash ability gives him his Neutral Air from the original Smash Bros. games. Additionally, all his other special moves deal increased damage.

bio21

Finally, Kirby’s Mix ability gives him a random ability that another character would have given him.

bio22

That’s all for Kirby. Join us next time when we go over the self-proclaimed monarch, King Dedede!
