Mario has made himself quite a few enemies, hasn't he? In Mario VS, you get to fight just about every villain Mario's ever faced. Adding to the mix include fighting:

  • his allies
  • new villains
  • third-party rivals

The game bears resemblance to the classic Megaman games. You choose an enemy, play through their level, and fight him/her. The only differences are that you're playing as Mario, the graphics are better, and once you beat all of the enemies, another slew of them opens up.
