Rocky Road (mission)
Rocky Road is the only mission contained within the galaxy Sweet Sweet Galaxy found in the game Super Mario Galaxy. Mario's (or Luigi's) main objective in this mission is to navigate an obstacle course of moving platforms with holes in them made out of sweets to eventually reach the Power Star. The name of the mission comes from the dessert rocky road, which is chocolate mixed with marshmallows, and in some countries, nuts or other ingredients.
Mario initially lands on the Starting Planet. From here, he has to navigate a straight path of moving squares that slide against Mario's desired direction. Each moving square has a different hole pattern, but all holes are circular shaped. After this section is done, he finds himself at a stationary square platform, where he has to turn right. This next section has electric bars to the sides, plus the ground below him moves from side to side. The platforms here have circular-shaped and arrow-shaped holes in them. At the next section, Mario has to navigate a turning path whilst moving on ground that moves in a circular manner. After successfully navigating this area, Mario finds the last area of the mission. Here, he has to navigate platforms that move against his desired direction and dodging electric bars whilst doing so. After this area, a giant cake is found, on top of which the Power Star of the mission is found.
