Super Smash Flash 2: Fan-made classic

This program is a free fan-made game that lets you play with a variety of characters, including those who are not found in the original Smash game.

Super Smash Flash 2 is easy to learn, difficult to master


Smash your way to victory while letting out some steam in this awesome impression of Super Smash Bros.

Though SSF2 has a different game engine than Super Smash Bros, the combat mechanics are similar. The pixelated graphics give it a nostalgic look for those old school players of the Super Nintendo era. Everything from the attacks and explosions resembles those of SS Bros.

You can choose from many different fighters, including popular anime protagonists like Naruto and Goku. A great novelty is that they  have characters from other games like Pacman and Sonic. Each brawler has its own fighting style and unique moves, which are consistent with their stories. As a result, skills dictate the outcome of every battle, and you have no one to blame for your defeat other than yourself.

SSF2 has a shallow learning curve. You can play solo until you feel like you’re ready to take on other players. Explore the many game modes that let you smash under challenging conditions. There is also a Training Mode to help you get used to the gameplay.

There is no real progression in SSF2 besides smashing better with your favorite character, or mastering every other one. Achieving that, however, would take a very long time. Top players have been known to invest hundreds of hours into each character. This process is not for everyone and can get repetitive.

How to play Super Smash Flash 2

Understanding the ropes of Super Smash 2 is key to enjoying the game to the fullest. In 2018, McLeodGaming released a helpful "How to Play" video on their YouTube channel. Think of it as a tutorial, like those in official Super Smash Bros. games, guiding you through the basics.

Get the basics down:

  • Move around using the A and D keys.
  • Jump and double jump by pressing W.
  • Quickly descend with the S key for a fast fall.
  • Attack strategically with neutral, tilt, dash, aerial, and smash moves, controlled by the P key.
  • Learn recovery and edgeguarding for defensive maneuvers.
  • Use I key for shielding, sidestepping, rolling, and air dodging.
  • Grab, pummel, and throw your opponents effectively.
