Slick Anthology

A video game collection in blog form… a constant work in progress

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo Cover

System: PS1

Genre: Puzzle

Release: 6/20/96

Completed: Partially

Leave it to the Street Fighter gang to star in an excellent puzzle game. The simple gem matching gameplay and addictive nature of multiplayer mayhem was successful for Puzzle League years before, but adding Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters makes the formula even better! The super deformed versions of Ryu and company were so popular with fans that they actually starred in their own fighting game spin-off. That’s right, a spin-off of a spin-off! The PS1 version is hard to find, but an HD remake is available on PSN and Xbox Live that’s just as good, as well as a direct port on the Game Boy Advance. It’s also funny to note that Mortal Kombat: Deception actually emulated this game with their own characters in the minigame Puzzle Kombat. Funny how that happens…

Buy this game from Amazon.
