Mighty Flip Champs! is a downloadable title for the Nintendo DSi as apart of DSiWare. The game was developed and published by WayForward Technologies. The developers took inspiration from numerous sources, including Wendy: Every Witch Way and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The game has been named as one of the best games on the Nintendo DSi Shop and has spawned sequels, Mighty Milky Way and Mighty Switch Force. The game will be released in 2011 on the PlayStation Network as apart of the PSN Minis.
In Mighty Flip Champs!, players control Alta, a girl who has to reach a fishman by flipping between areas until she can reach him.
Mighty Flip Champs! is a puzzle/platform game hybrid, requiring players to explore stages that vary from having two areas to up to eight areas. The objective is to get the player-character, Alta, through the stage and to find the Fishman. Later in the game, levels will add characters that Alta must find before she may exit the stage. Alta has only two abilities: movement and flipping. Movement requires use of the Nintendo DS' directional pad, allowing Alta to move only left or right. The player controls Alta on the top screen, with another area being shown on the bottom screen with a mirror image of Alta shown. Players are able to flip to a different screen by pushing a button. When these screens are flipped, the area on the bottom screen will appear on the top screen; depending on the number of areas, the top area will be moved to the bottom area, or a new area will be revealed. If Alta does not have any footing to land on, she will fall, though uninjured. If there is an obstacle in the way while flipping, she will lose and the level will end. Some special stages exist where Alta cannot flip the screen, and is at the whim of a clock which flips the screen every so often. Once a stage is completed, the players are shown their time and an accompanying rank, the highest being an "S".
