    One of the very best and most substantial titles DSiWare has to offer. [July 2011, p.77]

    It might not be the true Mighty Flip Champs sequel some were hoping for, but it's every bit as addictive and a game absolutely no DSi owner should miss.

    Maybe not as much fun as Mighty Flup Champs!, Mighty Milky Way is still interesting and full of content, and capable of keeping the player on the DSi for a long time.

    It's arguably even weirder than those first two 'Wares and every bit as unique, and it's serving to solidify WayForward even further as one of the top developers creating Nintendo downloadable games.

    Its nonsensical charm – cartoon aliens, sweeties that make planets, and a robot T-Rex – as well as a winning extra mode (which basically makes planets into timebombs) after completion rounds off an original and deep hybrid.

    Wonderfully presented and impressively imaginative 2D action puzzler, that almost seems too good for DSiWare.

    If you're looking to grab a DSiWare title in preparation for the upcoming 3DS eShop, Mighty Milky Way would be a mighty good choice, providing plenty of fun and intrigue.

    Though the game ends on a rather disappointing note, everything else up until then exudes that WayForward je ne sais quoi. A wonderful female lead, an inventive game mechanic, and a friggin' T-Rex that shoots laser beams are enough for me to recommend Mighty Milky Way.

    The further you go, the more hazards await, and the more colourful your language gets. One day they'll be forced to put blood pressure warnings on these things.

    This game is fantastic. The charm, the cute character design, the great music and the challenge all lead up to Mighty Milky Way being an amazing experience. WayForward has crafted another title with care. The 8 dollars used on this game will definitely not be wasted. So if you have a DSi or a 3ds (when the eshop becomes available); Do not miss this title. Full Review »

    A cute puzzle game with great characters and music. It will have you smiling every time. The length is pretty great too for the price of game so i don't think you will regret picking it up. Full Review »

    I dunno what the game developers were thinking when they made this game, but I'm sure glad they thought that way. The unique game play, cute characters and the amount and length of levels will be worth every cent of this eight dollar game. My only complaint about this game would be that in some levels were extremely difficult because you have the perfect angle and accuracy when jumping off of planets. But nevertheless, a great game overall!!! Full Review »
