Nin­tendo’s adorable pink puff­ball has slipped into the cock­pit of a gi­ant mech­a­nised ro­bot com­plete with buzz-saws and flamethrow­ers, and the re­sult is a vi­brant and ac­tion-stuffed 2D plat­former in which cute­ness and catas­tro­phe con­tin­u­ally clash. Kirby’s ro­bot form can adopt the abil­i­ties of his en­e­mies, which re­sults in an evolv­ing game­play ex­pe­ri­ence. A lit­tle light on chal­lenge, but oth­er­wise ex­cel­lent.
