As I mentioned repeatedly, I’m loving having a 3DS. I think nintendo has some phenomenal games that come out, and it’s wheelhouse of characters is adorably dangerous. Fitting well into “adorably dangerous,” is Kirby, a cute pink dude who eats literally everything.
This was my first time playing a Kirby game, and I was anything but disappointed. I am not quite done with it yet, but I am having a fantastic time, and I wanted to share that with you.
The story goes as King Dedede is captured, and Kirby has to go through all of these lands, defeating the villain’s minions to try to get him back. As Kirby goes along, he eats almost everything, and in doing so, he acquires some abilities.
One of my favorite of Kirby’s learned abilities, is that of the Archer. Kirby can eat an archer, and become him (until he gets hurt). This equips Kirby with a bow, arrow, and a smart looking cap. I like this ability so much because it works well at both long and short range, and you can choose the direction you wish to shoot in.
One thing that took me by surprise, is the number of clowns in this game. I am phobic of clowns, so I tend to stay as far away from them as possible. In Kirby, though, I haven’t been freaking out. I get stressed, when there are levels full of the clown villains, but once I realized that I can defeat them, I got excited, and started using it as a method of empowerment. I feel that way with the Lego clowns, in the Lego games as well; if I can kill you, it’s going to be alright. It becomes almost therapeutic to take the clowns down.
I’ve been taking a break from Pokémon lately, as it tends to take over my life when I play it. Kirby has been taking over a bit as well, but I only play during my break at work, and when I’m too early / waiting for a ride home from a coworker. Rationing it is helping me to enjoy the game more.
I definitely recommend this game to players of all ages. I think Kirby is beyond precious, and that his ability to eat everything is phenomenal. Go get a copy of Kirby Triple Deluxe today, and have the best time eating everything.
