Tiny Galaxy is an entertaining little Wii U eShop title that players may want to check out. It’s a challenging game with an adorable sound track and interesting visuals. Tiny Galaxy isn’t your average platformer and is an interesting take on the genre. Rather than traversing levels from left-to-right found in a typical platformer, players are tasked with performing vertical jumps from planet to planet while collecting the stars located on each one. While it’s not a perfect game by any means, if you have a few extra bucks laying in your eshop account, you may want to give this one a try.
First things first; Tiny Galaxy is no tiny challenge. Players will find themselves in a bit of a quandary early and often which plays to the games strengths and also its weakness. By this I mean, when players play this Tony Galaxy, they will have that “one more time” mentality knowing what they have to do and how they have to do it but may end up getting frustrated with the camera as they jump from planet to planet. To finish each level, you must collect three gold Stars which opens a Warp Gate; jumping through it completes the level. Sounds easy right? Well, the game quickly throws in a ton of different obstacles in your way to help thwart your progress and will keep gamers busy for a while. Levels in each world can be cleared in any order but there’s no way to tell what levels you’ve cleared so you will need to pay attention while playing.
The graphics in the game are nothing to ride home about but there is a certain charm with its simplicity. Tiny Galaxy doesn’t dazzle the player with crazy visuals but has a unique charm that’s undeniable (and a bit inexplainable). To be quite honest, I didn’t like the games style until I sat down and actually played the title. The screenshots didn’t do it for me but once you actually play the game, it’s not bad at all. Everything is crisp and colorful and looks great in motion on the big screen. Overall it’s simplistic style ads to the user experience.
The musical score in the game is delightful. I could just leave it right there and not go into detail but I had to mention that the music in the game is really nice. I feel like you have to give credit where credit is due and one of the most pleasant surprises of the game were its music. It’s catchy and really ads to Tiny Galaxy.
Overall Tony Galaxy isn’t too shabby. It’s a nice little Wii U eShop platformer that won’t win any awards but will provide you with a decent game with plenty of challenge. The game is only $5.99 so if you are looking for something a bit different, you may want to check it out.
Overall score: 6.5 out 0f 10.
