I am not much of a Kirby fan, as my experience with the pink puffball has been limited to Super Smash Bros. and Kirby 64. Since my Switch is in need of more games, I blindly bought this game without research. Kirby Star Allies is your standard Kirby game. There’s minimal platforming and Kirby’s copy ability is a significant game mechanic. The twist is Kirby can recruit enemies to join him on his quest to consume food and destroy everything that happens to be in the this pink sociopath’s way. The player is encouraged to work with their friends. Kirby and friends can use each other’s abilities to solve puzzles or defeat many enemies at once.
Kirby Star Allies is a simple, cute game. What you see is what you get. It would probably be more fun if you and 3 friends get together. Or it could ruin friendships. From what little I’ve played of the game, it was a good time. Even if it was rather easy. Sometimes there is too much happening on screen. The chaos can occasionally be overwhelming. Its a cute casual game that you can comeback to from time to time. I only played the first world so I have no idea how much content in the game. I don’t know if it really deserves the $60 price tag. What I do know is Kirby Star Allies is good old fashioned Nintendo fun.
