This is the best Kirby game I’ve played. In my opinion, it’s one of the best 2D platform games ever.
Kirby now has the ability to take enemies powers, which (I think) was introduced in Kirby’s Adventure. Kirby also has three friends who help him along the way. What’s interesting about his friends is when you ride on (or in) one of them, if you’re carrying or you pick up a power, the power becomes slightly different. It adds a lot of abilities to Kirby’s arsenal.
Spoiler: It’s a shame the final boss is practically identical to the one in the first game. But that’s my only complaint in what is otherwise a flawless platformer.
