Imagine if you will, if Super Mario was always relegated to his tiny stature. You had to traverse mushroom kingdom without being able to grow in size, without being able to throw fireballs. Doesn't sound like much fun does it?

Power-ups allow for extended ass-kicking and bring a whole new level of fun to the games we play. Gamers are always looking for new ways to eliminate enemies, move faster, and become stronger.
