Famitsu weighs in on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
In one of its recent issues, Famitsu weighed in on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and provided a review of the game. Four editors dished out scores of 8, 8, 9, and 9 for a total of 34 out of 40.
We now have a complete translation of what was said by the different Famitsu reviewers. Look for it below.
Kirby has cute looks similar to puppet animation and rolls in a world which is made of clay. The healing effect is also excellent. If you collect 100 stars you can activate the exciting “star dash”, in which Kirby becomes bigger and invulnerable like giant Mario. The multiplayer can be enjoyed in different ways compared to single-player, so I recommend this also as a party game.
The graphics consists of soft textures which look like clay animation and those fresh visuals make for a nice atmosphere. Controlling Kirby by drawing lines feels intuitive and is easy to understand, stages are exciting, and it is fun to try again after a failure. There are hidden items in every course and you can accumulate your collection. It is good that the game can be enjoyed in short sessions, but it would have been even better if there was a little bit more variation in rules and such.
The graphics look like clay animation and are really relaxing. If Kirby comes contact with a wall, the movement looks like real clay. The game isn’t only about guiding Kirby with rainbow lines as you have to protect him from water and enemy attacks. There are many ways to do things so players can test their techniques and ideas. On the other hand, if a boss defeats you many times in a row, there is a feature which allows you to skip that fight. Linking with amiibo and the affordable price are also attractive.
Although guiding a character by drawing lines with the GamePad isn’t a new mechanism in itself, the game deserves applause for making that mechanism more interesting to play. The visuals are cute and look like clay animation. The game is filled with a surprisingly diverse load of gimmicks so it excites in many ways. The game is packed with the true charm of action games.
