Kirby Canvas Curse


My Ratings:

Graphics: 7.5/10
The graphics seem a bit… GBA-ish. However, the color choices and background make up for it. There is also a detailed map on the top screen.

Story: 5.0/10
… Has there really been a Kirby game out there that has an excellent storyline? I mean, come on, Dreamland is in trouble, Kirby has to save it. Sure, Mario games are practically the same, but meh. At least there’s a new boss than Dark Matter…

Gameplay: 10.0/10
This is the first “full game” (as opposed to smaller applications like Yoshi Touch n Go) that has fully utilized the touch screen functions of the Nintendo DS. The controls with the Stylus, although one must get used to using one if they haven’t already, are very smooth and easy to work with. The only “working buttons” are the power switch and the start button.

The music in this game are comprised of remixed versions of the “newer generation” of Kirby game music. Many are recognizable from Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland. I can’t help but be a bit biased in this one, because I mainly played the “older generation” of Kirby games, such as Kirby’s Dreamland 2, or Kirby’s Pinball Land, etc. For those like me though, after collecting enough medals, you can unlock the classic songs in the Sound Test menu.

Overall: 9.5/10
Simply a fun yet challenging game. A must have for Nintendo DS owners. The first full length game for the platform that fully utilizes the touch screen and the dual screens. A lacking storyline, but like most Kirby games, the gameplay and sheer fun of the game make up for it.
