Summary: I bought this game new, $52.74 before additional costs. Not cheap. The game arrived in excellent condition. Seems obvious, right? Except it wasn't new. After removing shrink-wrap - a different kind of shrink-wrap from what is on every brand-new DS game I've ever seen - I popped the cartridge into my DS, started it up, and saw that all three of the save files were filled. Weak. But like I said, the game and case were in pristine condition.
Summary: If you've played Yoshi Touch & Go for the Nintendo DS then you already have a basic idea of what this Kirby game is like. Kirby will roll automatically, it's up to you to control his movements by touching him and drawing rainbow paths for him to cross. It will take agility and quick reflexes to safely guide Kirby through all the dangers that await ahead. Younger and inexpereinced gamers might be vexed by the multiple strategies and different ways of control.
Summary: Kirby's new adventure seems like the completion of the effort put into `Yoshi's Touch and Go' although I actually prefer the control in YTG. Too bad Yoshi's adventure played more like a demo than an actual game and was tragically short. There is quite a bit more control over the main character, Kirby, who can be stopped, sped up and made to launch attacks.
Summary: Kirby Canvas Cures for the DS is one of the funnest games out for this handheld right now and if you have a DS and havent thought of purchasing this game WHATS WRONG WITH YOU!! Not only is this game one of best games on the DS its also very very original and unique(Plus it takes advantage of the DS stylus and touch screen). The Visuals in the game are simply beautiful and very Colorful. Nintendo hit the mark on that one.
Summary: This game is a great action platformer. I mean, just look at the screenshots. I know it looks strange since you use rainbows as lines to guide you, I didn't like that. But, they thought ahead and you can buy different skins for the line. Anyway, the point is, to make a long story short, is about a whitch, who turns kirby into a mere ball, no legs. no arms. no body. Just a soccerball. But boy do they make this simple concept into a fun and unique experience.
Summary: this game has good graphics, it has fun gameplay, great bosses, and uses the touch screen a lot. In kirby canvas curse, kirby is sent to a different dimension... i think. You being the player finds a magical paintbrush and you aid kirby to go back to dreamland. This game has two modes in which to play on: main game which you go through the story as kirby or 3 other characters, or rainbow run. There are 8 worlds to go through, each world having 3 levels.
A terrific idea for a game, lots to do, a little frustrating...

Summary: This seems like one of the first games for the DS that gets it pretty much right. It's a well thought out game, with a lot to it. You use the stylus to draw paths to get Kirby through all kinds of levels, picking up stars along the way. You make Kirby go faster by poking him, and by making twirls in the path, and you can pick up the abilities of enemies, as in other Kirby games.
Excerpt: Canvas Curse? Hey, according to my copy, it’s most definitely Power Paintbrush all the way. But then again, it’s game, not the name, that matters. So I suppose I should get on with reviewing it. **~HOW THE GAME PLAYS~** If you don’t touch the screen from the start up title screen, the background story of the game will play out for you as a little story with scrolling text and cutesy pictures.
Pros: easy to learn controls, very cute, quite addictive
Excerpt: How can you make a pink blob look all serious and commanding? You can't though Nintendo try. In Japan Kirby is all happy and smiling but when he comes to America and Europe he's got an angry face with adorns the boxes. Kirby may not be Nintendo's most popular character but he's been in plenty of nice enough games such as Kirby and the Amazing Mirror and some not-so nice games like Kirby Air Ride.
Pros: Great way to control Kirby | Lots of stuff to do
