Final Breakdown


Almost perfect; if only two-player play didn't involve so much getting in each others' way.


Hal Labs has always done a fantastic job with the Kirby series, and this is no different. The yarn touch and storybook feel really make the art something unique.

Sound and Music:

The choice of a narrator is well done, and strong melodies make the Kirby music stand out once more.


It's as difficult as it needs to be - punishment for players not coming from death, but lost beads and level progress.

Controls and Interface:

While longtime Kirby fans will miss the ability to "eat" enemies at first, it won't be long before they're exploring the limits of the new yarn powers. Or, possibly, throwing their younger sibling into their enemies.


Perfect for younger, solo gamers or cross-generational play. Grab it if you're a grandparent, parent, aunt, uncle, or older cousin who wants a game they can share with the next generation (or two).
