Super Mario Galaxy is the latest installment of the Mario platformer series and designed specifically for the Nintendo Wii. In this adventure, Princess Peach is kidnapped and Mario must once again rescue her, but this time the pursuit takes Mario out of Mushroom Kingdom and into space.
In this area of space, miniature planetoids form vast chains that Mario can jump to and fro. These planetoids may be spherical or flat and the unique gameplay element in Galaxy is that Mario can now run around these surfaces and planetoids without falling.
Mario is controlled using the stick on the Nunchuk. The A button jumps and can be timed to do a triple-jump like in previous Mario games. Shaking the Wii-mote will make Mario spin, which can be used as an attack, a way to pull items up form the ground, and a way to launch Mario into space. The B button brings forth a star-shaped cursor for interacting with objects.
