[/float]Mighty Milky Way is a fusion of three distinct gaming genres: action, platforming and puzzle. Released for 800 Nintendo Points on May 9, 2011, from the minds at WayForward Technologies, it is the spiritual successor to Mighty Flip Champs. You assume the role of the protagonist, Luna: a rather appealing female alien, who is supposedly French. Her job is to planet jump across various worlds within the cosmos while dodging many hazards including the onslaught of her arch-nemesis, the T-Rex.
The world of Mighty Milky Way is very bizarre, but the tutorial at the beginning manages to clear up a few things control-wise. You are indirectly controlling Luna as she planet-jumps, so you might rely on the placement of planets, gravity and pure luck to get her to the end of each level. Her planet-jumping comes with a heavy price, as she can destroy the planet she lands on by pulse jumping off them twice. Thankfully, Luna has the ability to form new planets using Planet Candy. You can form planets of different sizes, which will affect her behavior on them gravity-wise. These are recurring items that are key to progressing through the levels of the game.
