Super Smash Bros. Brawl Subspace Emissary Part 4: The Jungle
Part 4 of our Super Smash Bros. Brawl Subspace Emissary sees us move from the Sea of Clouds to the Jungle. This was awesome! I haven’t played the whole Subspace Emissary yet, but to play as Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong against enemies from the Mario series was extremely enjoyable. The graphics, music, and action were all stellar!
You can choose between Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Your character proceeds through a side scrolling level that takes you on quite a journey. You will encounter Goombas, Koopas Parakoopas, and Hammer Brothers. Again, I can’t stress how enjoyable this was for me personally. I may be in the minority, but this is just a lot of fun. At times it feels more like a combination of Bowser’s minions in a DK Jungle level than a story mode on a fighting game.
As you progress you can shoot down from a barrel to what I presume would be a secret area, I bypassed it and got in the barrel blaster with no chance to go back. After the Hammer Brothers on the platform you can find a door hidden behind some blocks above you. The next red door takes you to a rising platform. Deal with the Goombas, Hammer Bros, and Bullet Bills in succession. Take the next red door to a drop down…stick to the left and you’ll find a hidden area. Head all the way down and you’ll have to battle a Giant Goomba. Defeat the Giant Goombas and a yellow door will appear.
And then, things got even better. Rather than get our banana stash back Bowser shows up with his special gun. DK sees this threat and hits Diddy out of the way. The blast hits Donkey Kong and turns him into a trophy. This completes the Jungle, what will likely be my favorite part of the SSE playthough.
Diddy Kong joined our team and we are now at 8% completion.
