Excerpt: Whenever a project is tied to a big name, whether the project is a movie, album, or video game, expectations soar. We expect greatness, huge production values, and unparalleled quality. You see, these big names attained that prestige by being great at their craft. However, these expectations are usually inappropriate. For example, Yuji Naka is one of the biggest names in the gaming realm as he is the father of the iconic character Sonic the Hedgehog.
Summary: I kind of feel what Ivy the Kiwi? was missing was letting you break out and play as Ivy and that would've been a lot more fun as you could run around and jump and travel through the levels rather than simply trying to enable or encourage Ivy with the stylus pen. That's more the style I look for in a platform with the stylus control being more of an added bonus or enhancement feature, but that's also personal opinion.
Summary: Ivy the Kiwi is the perfect example of the type of enjoyable and refreshing gaming experience that can be created when a developer isn't afraid to try something a little different. Not only does the game absolutely ooze storybook charm, but its simple touchscreen controls are easy enough for gamers of all ages to pick up and play, yet challenging enough to give even seasoned platformer fans a serious run for their money.
Summary: ""Ivy the Kiwi", übrigens von den Machern von "Sonic" ist ein echter Spass für Groß und Klein. Das Spielprinzip ist unterhaltsam und wie für die DS geschaffen! Es bringt die grauen Zellen zwar zum Bersten, aber genau so war es ja auch gedacht!
Conclusion: Ivy The Kiwi ? propose une aventure courte, mais néanmoins rafraîchissante et bien pensée. Malgré quelques bévues, la maniabilité simple et efficace fait des merveilles, nous offrant un jeu non indispensable, mais charmant et amusant, avec une difficulté adaptée et équilibrée.
