Whether you’re roaming the city or camped out in the comfort of your living room, this week’s new downloadable games invite you to virtually venture toward outer space for some wild intergalactic action. Mighty Milky Way for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service sends players on a planet-hopping mission filled with intrigue and adventure.

Explode vicious space monsters, avoid sizzling electric barriers and grab all the delicious planet candy you can. But watch out for the T-Rex, Luna’s arch-nemesis. His laser eyes are matched only by the awkwardness of his sketchy past.

Go higher and higher inside a tower in a desperate race to break the curse. You’ll need to overcome hordes of ghastly creatures and demons that lay in wait. Run, jump and fly your way to the top as time ticks away. There are 40 eerie levels with 10 types of gothic-style graphics – not for the faint-hearted.

Ten massive environments will immerse you in an eccentric and wacky world. A captivating and humorous storyline unfolds through each level, all the way to the grand finale. Sniper mode allows you to shoot an enemy in the eye from more than a mile away. Solve puzzles to create deadly weaponry with the brilliant mind of Dr. Hawkins. Sneak, snipe and shoot with Kurt’s suit, which is equipped with a cloaking device.
