Summary: A very nice oldschool platform game. Very simple and creative concept: drawing lines to direct and protect the character in well-designed levels. Don't expect to spend months on it, just made to have some fun every now and then.
Summary: This was difficult for my 5-year-old to play. He says "You can't control the character. You have to make vines to get out of things and you can't jump." Kids with great hand-eye coordination who love drawing may have a different experience, but this was a big disappointment for us. (The star rating and the decision to post a review were both from my son.
Summary: Ivy the Kiwi's the latest mascot from SEGA's ex-veteran game designer, Yuji Naka, whom was the man behind Sonic The Hedgehog, NiGHTS, and Billy Hatcher. Ivy The Kiwi is a beautifully crafted platformer with puzzle elements. This game is good for all ages. If you enjoy gaming mascots like Sonic, Mario, Donkey Kong, etc., this game is a must for your collection. Ivy the Kiwi is very similar to Kirby's Canvas Curse on the Nintendo DS. It's polished and well done throughout.
Old School Platformer with an Innovative New Control Scheme and Charming Presentation
12 February 2011
Summary: To be somewhat blunt, this is not a game for gamers who expect their games to be forgiving. It is a hardcore old-school style game with a charming presentation and an innovative control scheme. There are some new abilities and such but for the most part the basic gameplay doesn't change much from level to level, it just gets harder fast and occasionally a new challenge will be added like rats. It can get quite repetitive and it is extremely difficult.
Summary: Ivy the Kiwi? has much in common with the Amiga classic Lemmings. Ivy walks (fast) of her own accord with the player guiding her to the end of the level. Spikes and other dangers lurk in the levels amongst collectable feathers that boost the final score together with how quickly the level is finished. The player can guide Ivy by holding the A button then moving the remote to form vines Ivy can walk on.
Summary: Despite directing the main character Ivy the Kiwi to the goal safe and sound in each stage seems easy, collecting the ten red feathers scattered around in the shortest time possible is the real challenge of this game. As the level of difficulty progresses, more objects will become available to either help, hinder, or harm the little Ivy in the quest for her mother.
