Super Smash Flash



Due to the Flash Player reaching end-of-life, it is no longer possible to play this game directly on this page the traditional way in most browsers. However, thanks to a project called Ruffle significant strides are being made to emulate Flash. Currently only ActionScript 2.0 games are fully supported and functionality isn't perfect yet for ActionScript 3.0 games, but since writing this Super Smash Flash 1 is already mostly functional! You can test it out using the links below (currently works best in Google Chrome):

Choose your characters and options and battle it out with 28 different characters in the original title that started it all – Super Smash Flash!
This award-winning Super Smash Bros. fangame is complete with Classic Mode, Adventure Mode, and all of the things that make Smash Bros. feel like Smash Bros, with characters and content you’d never expect sprinkled about. Have fun!

Can I download this game to play offline?
Yes! Click the download button to the right.

What are the controls to this game?
For Player 1 it’s the arrows to move, ‘o’ to jump, and ‘p’ to attack. For player 2 it’s the “ASDW” keys to move, ‘g’ to jump and ‘f’ to attack. Press BACKSPACE to pause the game.

Why did you use a female voice as the announcer?
SSF contains a few extra characters so the audio wouldn’t be consistent with official announcers, and I wanted to give the game an extra twist. Plus the real announcer’s voice doesn’t rip very well, her voice is much clearer.

Who is the announcer?
Her name is Kira Buckland, (formerly known as “Rina-chan”, and before that “Kagome”). She’s VAing professionally now doing big titles like NieR: Automata and Soul Calibur VI.  Go check out here work below!

Why can Kirby switch with Meta Knight? Where’s his copy ability?!
That would result in needing 28 different sprites of Kirby wearing a different costume with a new ability, which wasn’t feasible without having my own spriters. I needed to do something to replace that ability with that would make Kirby strong enough to be a contender.

Why can I only do one attack?
There’s more than one! You have to try different combinations of the up, down, left, and right arrows with the attack button. Also, when you attack on the ground it’s different from attacking in the air.

How do I go back to the menu during gameplay?
Hold backspace while the game is paused for 3 seconds.

Where can I see the credits?
Anytime you beat the game. There’s a button to jump to the credits on the title screen too.

How come I can’t go through platforms like the real Super Smash?
You can, just hold the “down” key for half a second and you’ll fall through. Sorry it’s not as easy as the real one. 🙁

How to I change the match from Stock (Using Lives) to time (Timed match) and other options?
In VS Mode you can click the text at the top that defaults to “3-man survival contest!” and there you can change the options. Timed matches are different from stock matches since you get unlimited lives and whoever gets the most points wins. You gain a point for KOing someone (knocking them off the stage) and you lose a point for getting KO’d yourself. You can also play Stock and Time matches at the same time but the winner will be based on the amount of lives everyone has left. Also, to change teams you can click on the word “Melee” on the top left.

I can’t figure out how to unlock a certain character…
Google it 😉

100 Man melee is too hard!!!!!
Try using Knuckles.

3-minute melee is too long!! I keep dying!
Rather than going on the offensive, try just dodging the CPU’s until the time runs out.

15-minute melee is WAY too long…
I agree. You don’t unlock anything from completing it so don’t feel like you have to.

Is there a Sound Test in this game?
No, that would make the file size even bigger.

How come my save file is gone? It says to start a new game every time I play.
Either you’re playing the game on a different website (different site, different save) or you need to adjust your local storage settings to allow at least 10 KB of save data. (Right click the game, go to “Settings” and click the folder Icon). If you don’t want to lose your save data at all I suggest using the downloadable version (click “Download” on the right).

How was this game made?
The short answer would be with Adobe Flash (now called “Animate”). The long answer is too long to fit on here, so you might have luck asking some of our experts on our forums.

How long did it take Cleod 9 to make this game?
About 4 months.

Will there bea sequel?
It’s being worked on right now!

How old was Cleod 9 when this game was made?

Where did Cleod 9 learn to make games like this?
Practice, trial and error, and a lot of Google.

Will this game ever have online play?
Super Smash Flash 2 does!

Why isn’t there a video intro like the real Super Smash?
Honestly, file size.

How do I get Burly Brawl Melee?
You’ll need to beat 100-man Melee first.
