Kirby Epic Yarn Review

Epic Yarn is the new installment of Kirby franchise that keeps all the love of the original game stitched up in new threads. The game play is innovative, although they got rid of eating and absorbing powers you can still grab enemies up and your abilities are now linked to d pad pressing. The game is excellent when it comes with the special powers you get for each stage. We all seen the tank Kirby, but all the other abilities, Space Ship, rocket ship, skateboarder and digger were just a few added excellent level design and gave you a nice short break from the plat forming. The Rocket ship turns into scrolling shooter, the skateboard was fun getting air, even in the later stages they added more abilities to them the skating stage you can get wings to give an extra boost.

Level design in this game was the best each stage it seemed to add something different. One stage I would be swinging on yarn to yarn and another I would use air ducts to get to other areas with parachute Kirby.
I always felt like their was something new to explore in each new stage, both in game play mechanics and exploration. I love the eye for detail that comes from the level designs, pulling strings to gain access to ledges, or straighten out string of electrical current, it’s all just fun to see and play through.

My biggest complaint for the game is the fact that you can’t die in the game. This isn’t a deal breaker mainly I didn’t notice since I basically never got hit until later stages. I know this part would turn off many gamers since you think their is no challenge, but their is a score based system and I did hate getting hit losing many of my bits. The hard part can be on boss levels since you need to get a high score to get to any of the secrete stages. I think they could have fixed this easily by making an Easy and Normal setting but what’s done is done.

The story game play only lasted a weekend of play so it might be only a rental but I was only 50% done with the game I barely touched any of the secrete stages so their is much more to explore, and I had no one to play the co-op with.

My score is 3 and 1/2 thumbs up it would be higher but I am a bit annoyed with the no dieing aspect, still if you have a girlfriend or family member who doesn’t really get into games this could be a fun one that you both can enjoy.
