'Stache Smash is a primitive 2D side-scrolling strategy platformer full of twists, turns and egg-puns. In it, the player takes control of Dr. Eggman, who must maneuver through numerous hazards, including pools filled with sharks. Eggman may avoid these obstacles by running, jumping or swinging on vines. In order to "beat" the game, the player needs to find and collect seven specific objects.
'Stache Smash was developed by Dr. Eggman in an effort to improve his public image. When Eggman tried to sell the game however, he discovered that it was outclassed by more modern video games. This prompted Eggman to abandon 'Stache Smash and begin on Super 'Stache Smash.
- 'Stache Smash is a parody of the 1982 Atari video game Pitfall!.
- The requirement for completing 'Stache Smash is a reference to the video games in the Sonic the Hedgehog series that require the seven Chaos Emeralds to be collected in order to achieve the "good ending" of the respective games.
