Super Puzzle Fighter 2, from Capcom, is dangerously addictive, very funny (the chibi versions of famous Street Fighter and Darkstalker characters are amusing to watch).
Its a competitive puzzle game which sees you battle against an opponent (one of 12 characters), and attempting to destroy coloured gemstones which, when coming into contact with a same coloured orb, disappear, freeing up more space for you, and being transferred to your opponent. As you play, the chibi sprites react to the status of the game in amusing ways.
There are two main modes of play, the Arcade mode which sees you take on the other fighters in sequence, and another in which you unlock hidden characters, tunes, sprite colours, by defeating opponents in specific match-ups. The number of unlockables is huge and this mode will take you a long time to beat.
I got this for my DS Lite and I heartily recommend it to anyone, don't pass up on this just because it is an old GBA game, as you will be missing out on something special.
