Kirby: Canvas Curse

GamesRadar
23 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Plenty of DS titles, even original ones, barely make use of the hardware's unique features. This is not the case with Kirby Canvas Curse . The player uses the stylus to draw ramps onscreen. These ramps guide the now limbless puffball around expansive levels in search of power-ups and secret items, completely free of the D-pad or other conventional methods of input. You never directly control Kirby; he merely reacts to the paths you draw on the screen.
  • Pros: A genuinely unique platforming experience, Kirby's world is quaint and vibrant, Puts the stylus to work
  • Cons: Not exactly pushing the hardware, Simple adjustments are a nuisance, Could we skip the underwater levels?

  • Excerpt: Features 1 Player Touch Screen Compatible Cartridge Save Introduction Having reviewed Yoshi Touch & Go earlier this year I was left with the distinct impression that I only got a taste of how Nintendo planned to utilize the touch screen to control a game. Their latest release, Kirby Canvas Curse, has upped the bar when demonstrating the true innovation that the DS is as this game is solely controlled by the DS’s touch screen.

  • Excerpt: Welcome to the world of Kirby: Canvas Curse. You play as Kirby, the lovable pink marshmallow on an adventure to save Dream World from evil. Kirby is stripped of his limbs from a witch. Kirby is now a quadriplegic and you must help guide him to the end of the level. You are equipped with your ability to use your enemies’ abilities and to create rainbow roads to guide Kirby. As the advertisements say, you can touch Kirby.

  • Conclusion: Kirby Canvas Curse is an excellent title with innovative gameplay that boosts the DS lineup. The fun and addictive stylus control, although simple, really puts to work the capabilities of the hardware to provide an enjoyable gaming experience to put a new twist on a classic series. The game was really built around the touch-screen control and feels more complete than just a gimmick. Canvas Curse fits well into any DS library so grab that paintbrush and get painting!

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Kirby setzt nicht auf die üblichen 08/15 Zutaten für ein Spiel. Man bekommt keine pompöse Technik geboten, roten Lebenssaft und rohe Gewalt sucht man ebenfalls vegeblich. Kirby versucht stattdessen mit simplem und eingängigem Gameplay Spaß zu bereiten. Und das gelingt Kirby Canvas Curse. So kann man nur über einen fehlenden Mehrspielermodus, eine durchschnittliche Technik und den kurzen Umfang meckern.
  • Pros: exzellente Touchscreensteuerung, simples und spaßiges Gameplay, zuckersüße Grafik…
  • Cons: …welche aber auf GBANiveau ist, Umfang zu gering, SoundQualität eher durchschnittlich
