Super Mario Galaxy is a 3D platformer for the Wii. In it, miniature planets are the platforms, where Wii's Controller is used to go from planet to planet, as well as bat away objects. Mario is controlled with the Nunchuk attachment's Analog stick.
Super Mario Galaxy received universal acclaim, with many reviewers deeming it among the greatest games of all time.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Super Mario Galaxy is a 3D platformer set in outer space. Taking control of Mario, the player travels to different galaxies in order to collect Power Stars. The galaxies themselves consist of various planetoids for the player to explore, all of which have their own gravitational field. This allows Mario to circumnavigate most of the planetoids he lands on, and jump from one planetoid to the next.
Co-Star Mode[edit | edit source]
"Co-Star Mode" is a form of limited co-op. In this mode, one player controls Mario, while the other uses the Wii Remote to control a second pointer on screen, allowing them to gather Star Bits and shoot them at enemies.
Super Luigi Galaxy[edit | edit source]
"Super Luigi Galaxy" is a gameplay mode unlocked after collecting all 120 Power Stars and defeating Bowser a second time. As the name suggests, Mario is replaced with Luigi, and the player can collect all of the Power Stars again. Luigi has slightly different controls than Mario: he has a higher maximum speed and jump height, but he has less traction and longer acceleration.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Mario is invited by Princess Peach to the Star Festival, which is held once a century to celebrate the arrival of a comet. Shortly after he arrives, the festival is interrupted by Bowser, who attacks the Mushroom Kingdom in his armada of airships. "Inviting" Peach to the creation of his new galaxy, he summons a massive UFO to rip Peach's Castle from the ground. Mario manages to reach the base of the castle before it is pulled into outer space, but he is blasted away by Kamek.
