EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

If you've been wondering if it's possible for Nintendo's Kirby to get any cuter, we can tell you without doubt, that the answer is YES! Kirby and the Rainbow Curse from Nintendo is the latest, and possibly cutest entry in the Kirby franchise. Kirby is the little pink puffball from planet Pop Star. He likes to transform into different things and in Rainbow Curse, he is reimagined as a ball of clay.

Kirby rolls and dashes through a colorful clay world and players control where he goes by drawing a rainbow rope for him to travel along. You draw the rainbow rope on the screen of the Wii-U's game-pad, and the idea is to place them strategically so that you can get Kirby through the level, while avoiding obstacles and finding the large number of hidden items.

Is It Fun?

Figuring out how to get Kirby to a specific spot in a level, using the ropes is a creative and fun game experience that Kirby fans are going to love.

Who It’s For

The game is rated E for everyone, and we think kids as young as 6 should be able to play it on their own. You don't have to have played previous Kirby games to enjoy this one, but Kirby fans, of all ages, including adults, are probably going to like it the most.

What To Be Aware Of

While this is basically a single-player game, up to three additional players can join in using Wii remote controllers, and control characters that assist the main player.

If you have a Kirby, King Dedede, or Meta Knight amiibo figure, those figures will activate different powers for Kirby in the game. Each figure can only be used once a day though.
