Super Smash Bros. Brawl Subspace Emissary Part 34: The Great Maze Part 4
Part 34 of our SSBB SSE Playthrough has us continue in the Great Maze. We pick back up in the Cave area. Jump to the platform and hit the switch to clear the poisonous gas. Enter the door at the bottom and move up to find an Item Box and a trophy. Drop down and continue left. Watch out for flames that will come from the wall, ceiling, and floor. You can use the Pink Switches to kill the flames momentarily. You will need to use projectile attacks to clear Koopas, ParaTroopas, and Hammer Bros. as you progress.
If you get to an area with flames all around, backtrack to the nearest switch. You will also encounter a few Bullet Bills from time to time. When you get to the end of the ledge, , jump to avoid Fireballs. Take the Boss Door and you will face none other than King Koopa himself, Bowser!
This was also cool as we entered with Mario. Unfortunately we had high damage and lost him very early. R.O.B. came on to replace him and made fairly quick work of him…I must say that the subspace look on Bowser was pretty cool!
Exit the door and progress back to the right. This is the exact same set-up, but it is a bit easier having been thru it already and knowing where the switches are and having a little knowledge of the time frame on the flames. Work your way right while watching for enemies and flames, and then exit out the door.
Now, hit the Pink Switch and take the cycling rocks upwards to avoid the poisonous gas. Jump to the right and you can enter the top Boss Door. This pits us against Mario. R.O.B. was lost right at the start of the battle. Marth came in and performed admirably. The main thing is to just try and land a power attack on Mario. We did just that and defeated him.
Jump back to the left and save your progress! More importantly you can reset your characters before you progress to the left.
