A Quick Tip by Kuronoa

  • Oct 9, 2011
As if Kirby could not get any cuter, here comes an entry of the series made up of arts and crafts!  Good-Feel must of had to tell the art team to go to the local hobby store and grab everything they can as there is no shortage of cloth and textiles to give each level theme fine detail and animation. Right up there with Vanillaware and Arc System works as developers who really shine in 2D graphics.

Gameplay is a little different than Kirby's usual outings.  There is no flying and you do not suck up enemies since his new form forbids him in doing so.  You can still pick them up and throw which does a similar effect.  You do not obtain copy abilities either, for obvious reasons.  Kirby can still transform into a variety of things.  It reminds me of Yoshi Island actually, as you grab the powerup and transform into a train or UFO for example.  Maybe Yoshi should of been the star, but save the debate for another day.

It is easy to finish the story since you there is no death only lose beads (use as currency and scoring at the end of the level).  This is only at face value, collecting a mass amount of beads and collecting the three treasures in every level serves as a fair amount of effort in accomplishing.  You can also accept missions from your neighbors as well.

About this video game


Kirby's Epic Yarn is a 2D platformer for Wii that blends classic Kirbygameplay with new abilities, functionality and more. Kirby's first console platform game since the Nintendo 64 days, Kirby's Epic Yarnintroduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the gameplay and allows the ever-morphing Kirby to take on a variety of new forms. It's a one-of-a-kind platformer that lets players explore high and low for hidden objects, experience fun adventure and even join with a second player in a co-op play mode.

Kirby Offers a New Take on String Theory

Kirby's tendency for gobbling up items has set off another chain events. This time it has to do with an odd looking tomato-like object. Looking utterly delicious, down it goes. The problem is that it belongs to an evil wizard who reacts by sending Kirby to another dimension where everything, and everyone, even Kirby, are made of yarn. But that is a decision that the Wizard may yet regret, as Kirby joins forces with new friends in the strange land to unravel the plot of the wizard.
