Suggested by Hoi It’s time for the legendary pink ball of terror to fight once again. Kirby has absorbed hundreds of abilities over the years and is incredibly powerful as well. Kirby has enough power to take out the planet and his speed is legendary. If he was fighting someone else then he may even have won, but he is up against the strongest being of all. Bass has speed that is unmatched and his power is also limitless. I don’t believe he will lose here. Bass wins.
Suggested by Sonic Rosalina is back, but Kirby isn’t an easy opponent for any fighter. Kirby has copied well over 100 abilities at this point and has always been a tough opponent to keep down either way. One slice of his sword and Rosalina’s barrier will likely fall. She doesn’t have a lot of offensive options to use against the pink puffball and that is why she ultimately won’t be able to claim victory here. Kirby wins.
Suggested by Sonic Diddy has returned, but he won’t fare any better in this match. Kirby has the ability to copy the techniques of anyone he eats. He’s done that to many foes in the past and has a whole lot of options to choose from. Even without any abilities he already has more strength than Diddy possesses. Diddy Kong’s only got his athletic skill to back him up and that won’t do much against Kirby’s impressive speed. Kirby wins.
Suggested by Sonic The Bomber is a cool minion. I’m a fan of his design and those explosions are no joke either. Still, that’s nothing to Kirby. Kirby has endured some massive explosions back in the day and he also has a very large arsenal of attacks at the ready. Anything that the Bomber tries will be rendered ineffective against Kirby. Kirby is not a character to be taken lightly and continues to prove this throughout his various adventures. One good hit should end this fight. Kirby wins.
Suggested by Sonic Is it just me or is this one of those moments where you realize that Kirby is Yoshi, but much more powerful? Just hear me out for a second. Yoshi can absorb apples whole Kirby can absorb whole mountains and giant enemies. There really isn’t much Yoshi can do against that and Kirby has many other special abilities at the ready to back him up. Kirby wins.
Suggested by Sonic Kirby and Jigglypuff are compared a lot as both fighters look really similar and are actually quite powerful. They each have a ton of abilities at their disposal so this kind of fight can go either way. That being said, I have to give Jigglypuff the edge here. Her energy blasts can match Kirby’s and her speed is on par as well. Both fighters have healing abilities and countless other tricks up their sleeve, but the Puff also has an evolved state which increases her abilities even further. Jigglypuff wins.
Suggested by Sonic Little Mac is a strong boxer and he has a pretty good amount of speed as well. Kirby will have a difficult time trying to compete against such a fighter in his base form. Fortunately this little guy has a lot of tricks up his sleeve. His various power ups will be too much for Little Mac to handle. Kirby may not look like the most powerful fighter around, but he is deceptively strong. Kirby wins.
It’s time to look at a rather obscure Kirby game. Between Kirby Star Allies, Battle Royale, and Robo Kirby who had time to remember to pick up this title? If not for My Nintendo giving a pretty big discount for this game I probably would have ended up passing on it as well. Still, it’s a quality game with good gameplay, it’s just a shame that it isn’t longer or that it doesn’t have more content. I realize that you can’t ask for much when a game is only about 2-3 dollars, but I’d still expect something a bit longer.
There are 2 game modes to choose from here. Single Player or Multiplayer. In Multiplayer you fight against other people who own copies of the game. In Single Player you go through a gauntlet of 9 battles which is in a format very similar to Super Smash Bros. Once you complete that you will have effectively completed the game. On average I would complete a Single Player mode in about 5 minutes. There are 10 characters total so if you play with all of them then the game is about 50 minutes long which isn’t half bad. I managed to squeeze in about 2 hours, but you will ultimately struggle to play this game for very much longer. After all, there is almost literally nothing to do once you have beaten the game 10 times. I suppose you can just keep trying to beat the single player mode over and over again…but why?
Lets take a step back for a moment and look at the gameplay. It is your classic 2D fighter. Each Kirby has a different moveset which relates to their weapon of choice. Some items will drop on the stage as well which you can use to try and seize the advantage against your opponents. It’s a pretty sound gameplay style and one that works well. It’s one of the reasons why I was able to complete the game 10 times over without getting bored. I probably wouldn’t have done so if there were too many more characters but 10 is certainly reasonable. My favorite character was probably beam Kirby. That guy felt pretty OP. Most of them are fairly good except Ninja Kirby which is probably the worst one in the game.
The graphics are fairly solid. It does look like a modern Kirby game so I’ll give the title some credit there. The character designs are on point and the stages look lovely. It’s really everything that you could ask for in a Kirby game and then some. I also enjoyed the soundtrack which has all of the classic Kirby tunes that you would expect to see. There is really nothing wrong on a technical level and I suspect that this is where most of the game’s budget went. After all, it certainly wasn’t put into the content.
Again, it’s not as if this is a bad Kirby game. After all, the gameplay is good and I just explained how the technicals are solid as well. I don’t need a game to be super long to be enjoyable but asking for more than an hour’s worth of content isn’t a big request. At least throwing in some more incentives to keep on playing would be nice. I’ve played free games that had a lot more content than this one and they weren’t by AAA companies like Nintendo. There is really no excuse not to have made the game a little longer.
Overall, It’s a fun Kirby game. I would only hesitantly recommend it though as you will have more fun just popping in Super Smash and fighting each other there. There’s not really a whole lot of reason to play this game aside from the novelty of a Kirby fighter. It’s only a few dollars though so honestly you aren’t losing much if you choose to get it. If you are a true Kirby fan then you may be honor bound to purchase it, but if not then I recommend buying the Kirby Dream Collection. Now that game had a lot of content.
Suggested by Sonic It’s time for another round of Smash fighters duking it out for the top. Kirby has quite a lot of different techniques at his disposal which should come in handy for this fight, but Fox has the better tech options at his disposal. I actually don’t think Kirby would be able to come out on top here if we limited him to his base form, but throw in his crazy abilities and Fox is the one out of his depth here. Kirby will distract him with electric balls and fire dragons as he closes in to finish Fox off with the Master Sword. Kirby wins.
