In the world of food, there are all kinds of oddball taste combinations don't seem like they shouldn't work together, but when combined, you wind up with a tasty, if not unexpected treat. SuperMash is the video game equivalent of that, mixing together game genres into random blends, or "Mashes," that satisfy gamers' appetites more often than not. Some combinations are hilariously fun to see in action, like an elvish ranger in a classic RPG sporting an assault rifle or grenades, or a WWII fighter plane deftly bouncing around from platform to platform while "stomping" on enemies' heads. That's not to say every Mash is a masterpiece in the making. Sometimes, due to the huge number of variables and the randomness of each Mash's creation, these bite-sized game experiences can prove to be confusing, frustrating, and on the rare occasion, even downright impossible to complete.

Glitches, which can range from zero to three positive or negative effects, are the biggest X-factor in gameplay. Some might make you immune to damage for a bit, while others can spawn enemies with every attack or alter your controls. Still, even impossible Mashes can be fun to play around in. And worst-case scenario, you simply exit out and create a new Mash to try. Toss the one-time use Dev Cards into the mix, and players get a certain level of customization that can add personal touch to a Mash's creation. And with content updates and downloadable content planned for the future, budding game developers are only just starting to unlock the creative potential that SuperMash has to offer.

Did we miss something on diversity?
