A giant beanstalk called the Dreamstalk pops up on Pop Star under Dream Land and takes Kirby’s house and King Dedede’s castle with it to the land of Floralia. When Kirby goes to investigate and sees King Dedede get kidnapped by Taranza. Kirby now is a on a quest up the Dreamstalk to save the King from Taranza and bring everything back to normal on Dream Land.
This game stays true to the original games and game play of the original Kirby games. The player is controlling Kirby and using Kirby’s various copy abilities to reach the end. The player not only has to go through all of the challenges, but also find all of the keychains and sun stones in order to finish the game as well which adds a lot of adventuring past just beating the level. Not only are there key chains and sunstones to collect but there are also stars to collect, and as in the other games 100 stars will give you another life.
The player controls Kirby and must suck up other characters and abilities while playing in order to beat enemies and to be able to be able to find all of the objects on each level. Kirby has stuck to the regular game play that it is known for throughout the game. There is a new fun power that Kirby has in this new game. Kirby can eat what is called a Miracle Seed in the game and becomes Hypernova Kirby and this allows Kirby to suck up and pull out very large objects.
The character that the player plays is Kirby as mentioned above, but after the game is beat the player is able to play as Dedede in a bonus area. The platform is similar to other games where you will defeat bosses on every island and other types of lower bosses throughout the levels that are sent down upon Kirby by Taranza.
This game has been displayed in the 2.5D perspective, where some of the enemies come from the background and they were able to do some cool and interesting things with the characters and some of their actions and defeats on the 3D that is offered by the 3DS platform. Everything seems very smooth and streamline with no glitching or long loading screens.
In addition to the story mode on the game there is two other games that are included on the game. There is a Kirby Fighter mode where there is a choice of single player or multiplayer where its possible to play other people around who also have the game. When the player starts they pick a copy ability, and a difficulty level before fighting other Kirby’s through several levels to victory. The other game is called Dedede’s Drum Dash. This game involves the player playing as King Dedede and making him jump along on drums to the beat of the music while collecting coins. There are various levels with increasing difficulty.
Overall this is a fun, and colorful game for new and experienced gamers. With all of the different things to collect to complete this game and all of the fun extras that was added to the story mode there is plenty for everyone to do. While this game is simple compared to other games it leaves the door open for everyone to play, and can help bring in another generation of gamers. There is a lot of potential for replay with all the key chains that are needed to fully complete the game, as well as the additional games that have different difficulty levels for all different ranges of players. Anyone that loved the other Kirby games is sure to love this as well.
