Ivy the Kiwi?

Family Friendly Gaming
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I was so impressed with Ivy the Kiwi? on the Wii that I put the Nintendo DS version on my purchase wish list. The game finally came down into my price range, and I scooped it up. This hand held title has the player take on the role of a little bird trying to find his mother. The main game play mechanic is to draw vines that the little birdie can walk along. This is also a way to bring the birdie over walls, and to avoid spikes.

Review: Ivy The Kiwi? (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
7 November 2010
  • Summary: Ivy the Kiwi? is a wonderful little game that packs a lot of fun in an unfortunately too short adventure. Despite the game’s shortness, it’s loaded with style and exquisite gameplay, and for 30$, it’s still a pretty good deal. If you are a fan of platformers, give it a try. There’s a pretty good chance this could be right up your alley, as length is the game’s only major flaw.

Fun retro platformer with beautiful storybook graphics.

5 November 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Ivy the Kiwi is a sweet-looking, old-school 2-D video game with quaint storybook visuals. It is easy to learn, but can be quite challenging. There's very little than can be considered violence in the game.

Ivy the Kiwi? Review

Cheat Code Central
3 November 2010
  • Conclusion: I have to say, with all the violence and depravity that’s so commonplace in the industry these days, it’s refreshing to come across a game with such an air of innocence. Ivy may not be without its flaws, the biggest being that a seasoned gamer can blow through it in a couple hours and there’s not a whole lot of replay value, but if you have kids that want a quality platformer or you’re just a fan of puzzle-platformers yourself, Ivy’s a good bet.

Ivy the Kiwi Review

1 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I saw a fair few kiwis when I was trekking about New Zealand with a backpack. Endearing little things they were, with abnormally long beaks and strangely proportioned bodies (I mean the birds, of course; not the local population). Their prominent features make them the perfect candidates for the platform-game-hero treatment. Had little Ivy been on the scene fifteen years earlier, I’m sure she would have just as iconic as Bubsy, Earthworm Jim, or Gex.

Ivy the Kiwi?

Defunct Games
21 October 2010
  • Summary: From the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog comes Ivy the Kiwi?, a cute little platformer/puzzler that takes players on a 100+ level adventure home. With its unique gameplay and cool art style, Ivy makes a great first impression. The game mechanics get a little tiring as the game goes on, but there's more than enough depth and challenge to warrant the purchase! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
