Super Mario War is a Super Mario multiplayer game. The goal is to stomp as many other Marios as possible to win the game. There are a bunch of different characters to select from and most of them are video game mascots. Mario, Wario, R.O.B. the robot, Cecil, a Black Mage, Lolo, Luigi, Toad, Bub, Samus and Link are some of the characters in the roster. However, the only difference is cosmetic because there are no special moves for each character. The game includes a campaign mode based upon an overworld similar to that of Super Mario Bros. 3. However, instead of levels, the player simply fights more of the characters featured in the game although controlled by the CPU player. The player moves onto the next level when the enemy is defeated.
