Product Details:

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, the award-winning puzzle game featuring "super deformed" characters from the Street Fighter and Darkstalker series, breaks into the handheld market. In the game, miniature versions of Capcom's fighting game icons battle it out while players attempt to devastate their opponent in a columns-style puzzle game.

In Super Puzzle Fighter, the player attempts to outwit either the computer or another human opponent in a one-on-one battle of intellect and adrenaline. As a linked pair of gems descends from the top of the screen; the player moves and rotates these gems to form groups and piles of the same color. Groups of gems can be destroyed by either a Crash Gem, which will break all gems of the same color that are touching, or a Rainbow Gem, which when placed on a gem, will destroy all on-screen gems of the same color. When the player breaks their own gems, Counter Gems will fall onto the hapless rival. Counter gems at first appear as blank blocks with a colored number five, which means that the player has to drop five sets of gems before the counter will turn into a normal gem.

To compliment the frenetic pace of Super Puzzle Fighter, the player must choose one of eight familiar characters from the Street Fighter and Darkstalkers series. Among the selectable characters are Ryu and Ken, the karate masters; Sakura, the high-kicking teen; everybody's favorite Chinese detective Chun Li; vampire hunter Donovan; Felicia the cat-woman; Scottish succubus Morrigan, and Hsien-Ko the ghost-girl, as well as three extra hidden characters. Each of the characters is a "super deformed" (a shrunken cartoon parody) version of the familiar fighter, with a Japanese, highly comical look to them. The characters all have unique Drop Patterns which effects individual playing styles, determining how counter gems are sent onto the opposing side. During play, the characters will attack each other with their respective signature moves, resulting in bursts of energy, streaming fireballs, flaming uppercuts, and a host of other on-screen actions to entertain the players. The backgrounds and in-game music are also full of inside jokes and parodies from a number of other Capcom titles. In addition, there are five hidden characters that players can access and the ability to play head-to-head, using the linkcable, adding even more appeal to an already great game.
