Well this exeeded my expectations! If you loved earlier "old school" Kirby games, you'll most certainly adore this game.
First thing you notice in this game is that the lower screen can contain your items, which you can clic on with your stylet to use them later on. That option is very cool, cause when you need to use a cherry to regain health, you can use it anytime you actually need it!
second, new powers, like animal, bubble, tornado, arrow fireing-angel, etc... along with the old ones from the Snes! it'S so fun^^
Third... wow... 120 levels.... this game can last you long...
ok bad points now :
1. it's still a kirby game, linear, enemy killing, swallowing... but if you like the style, it'S not that big of a deal.
2. the multiplayer minigames, which can be played with 3 other players, are kindda annoying after a while, nothing to last 4 hours in a party. you can play them with only you owning the game cardrige, while your friends download from Wifi and play with you! the games are fun anyway, but nothing very cool.
that is about it, this game is worth its 35$, i believe. Since i liked the old kirby games, i like this one too!
