Review: Mighty Flip Champs!

“A few exceptions aside, DSiWare hasn’t quite delivered that much of a bang with its first slate of games and apps released over the several months since the service launched.

With a slew of more substantive games on the way, WayForward Technologies is leading the charge with Mighty Flip Champs!, a brainy platforming puzzler that’ll throw you for a good loop.”
