Nice music and graphics. The clay animation is a nice effect. I enjoy Kirby games and will pick this one up for myself and the kids.

Looks like fun for the kids, but I'm going to be honest and say I'm getting burned out on platformers and whish Nintendo would make some other games not in that general genre. And it is going to take something very special to top Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.

Hands-on impressions:


Where Epic Yarn turned Dreamland into fabric and string, Kirby’s latest outing recreates the pink hero’s colourful world from modelling clay. An obvious throwback to the mechanics of Canvas Curse on the DS, Rainbow Curse is a hybrid of platformer and pinball, with prods and strokes of the gamepad’s screen sending a spherical Kirby rolling and bouncing through each stage.

The control system’s fiddly at first but soon becomes second nature: tapping Kirby sends him bouncing along the screen, while drawing a line creates a temporary, impenetrable barrier which you can use to guide him past hazards and towards the nearest exit.

Although the game handles similarly to Canvas Curse, the HD graphics really set it apart; each stage has a deliciously tactile feel, and familiar characters (like the wide-eyed Waddle Dees) look even cuddlier when they’re fashioned from modelling clay.

The only curious thing about Rainbow Curse is that it requires you to constantly scrutinise the gamepad - the exact same image appears on the TV screen, but it’s more for the benefit of anyone else sitting in the same room rather than the player. This effectively makes Rainbow Curse a handheld game, and makes us wonder whether the 3DS wouldn’t have been a better venue for it. Nevertheless, Rainbow Curse is a charming little game, and continues Kirby’s almost unbroken run of engaging, surprisingly varied adventures.

Release date: 2015
