Kirby Mass Attack

Kirby Mass Attack is an action-adventure game with lots of very vague cartoony violence. Your team of little Kirbys (smily pink puffballs) pile on their enemies and battle them, though the actual fighting is depicted as nothing more than a whirring of arms and feet. Defeated Kirbys turn into ghost/angels and begin to float away, but they can be grabbed and brought "back to life." There is some strategy involved in deciding how to use your many Kirbys, and the game encourages experimenting. Recommended for ages 3-8 years
age 9+

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

While some of the action in Kirby Mass Attack is obviously derived from the classic Pikmin (moving around little heroes en masse, flicking them at enemies), it's put to fantastic use in this wonderful new 2-D side-scrolling adventure with a nice old-school feel to it. Using the stylus to control your band of Kirbys is remarkably easy, and launching them at giant baddies is a blast. But the combat is only a small part of the adventure; there's also a great deal of exploration, with plenty of bonus items to discover. This game isn't much like Kirby games of the past, which could disappoint fans of the franchise, but as a stand-alone adventure, it's an awesomely good time.
