Review: Kirby Mass Attack

When thinking of the Kirby series of games my mind eventually focuses on the main fundamental of the franchise: gobbling up baddies and copying their powers. I’d say it’s fair to say that’s been the core of the franchise outside of Epic Yarn, which is why I was surprised to find none of that in the newest Kirby title, Kirby Mass Attack for the Nintendo DS. I was about to get my Kirby fanboy rage on, but when I played the game all that rage went away, and all that was left was the fuzzy feeling of satisfaction that only the pink puffball can give me. Kirby Mass Attack is coming out on the tail end of the DS’s lifecycle, and though it doesn’t follow the same formula as other Kirby games, it’s an excellent swan song showcasing everything the DS has to offer.
