The old-time cartoon super hero Mighty Mouse has made his way onto the iPhone “saving the day” through 3 worlds and 60 levels of villian butt-kicking gameplay, in Mighty Mouse My Hero (by CBS Interactive). This cartoon character has been around since 1942 with generations of kids growing up to the famous tag line “Here he comes to save the day.” This superhero mouse has been seen in the comics (newspaper), cartoon episodes on the television, movies, etc. Now, this legendary mouse has made it onto the iPhone by way of his own app — kicking butt and taking names. While the plot is the same in this app as all the Mighty Mouse stories, which is Mighty Mouse fighting off bad guys while trying to rescue Pearl Pureheart, his girl.
The game is pretty good, but has some funky gameplay. For example, the object is to fly Mighty Mouse through a level without hitting an enemy or an enemy object, doing so will require you to play the level over. You fly Mighty Mouse by holding down on the screen, and when you let go of the screen he begins to drop to the ground. The movement for the flying is almost there, but it seems a bit tight in comparison to the screen size, and at times makes the game harder than it should be when flying into or past enemies. The action button also does not do it for me. When used correctly, meaning you tap on the action button and Mighty Mouse hits an enemy, the action button is ready to be used immediately. However, if Mighty Mouse misses an enemy (you miss an enemy), then there is a delay in use of the action button, which makes the game more difficult – I’m thinking this is not necessary and makes the game harder, a little too soon in the gameplay. Now, I am not crying here, just found it to be a little strange and it took some getting use to, most likely this is just the way the developers designed the game engine.
Your main objective is trying to reach Polly and on the way you will want to collect as much cheese as you can, beat up enemies, collect power ups and pearls, all of which either help in Mighty Mouse’s overall objective or provide bonus gameplay (pearls). There is a store to spend your hard-earned cheese where you can buy power-ups, new outfits for the supermouse, etc. Might Mouse My Hero is a decent to fun casual game, but it left me wanting a bit more. Merely flying and punching, or trying to punch bad guys fell a bit flat with me. I want to pick up cars, hair-grab a bad guy and fling him into the sky, and so on — guess I want too much, well, not in my opinion. Check out all our iPhone app reviews. Crazy Mike
