I actually received kirby star allies as a gift. Great fun with lots of challenging puzzles for you to solve. You have quite a bit of freedom to come up with your own creative solutions to the obstacles you will face in the game.
You can explore the level freely and goof around with your ragdoll character to your heart’s content. No time limits or enemies chasing you. You just go along at your own pace. No fancy graphics really but the environments are still quite stylish. Music is very fitting.
Character movement can be a bit frustrating at times because of the way the character control works (your arms go where you look). Every now and then I find a game that triggers my motion sickness and unfortunately the camera movement in this game did it. Had to take a few breaks during my playthrough but still had tons of fun. Definitely a game I can recommend.
One issue I had with the inclusion of multiplayer was how stupid fun it was. Talk about a first world gaming problem, but when playing Kirby star allies with friends and randoms it was one of the best experiences I’ve had playing any multiplayer game period. The original title, without multiplayer, is overshadowed by the many different ways you can customize your character, screw over your friends, and absolutely break the laws of nature with your superhuman vice grip. It’s almost too much fun and takes away from the rest of the game very quickly as that initial high of building an eight-man conga line to swing to victory becomes progressively less enticing. This is how to get kirby star allies free btw!
In conclusion, I think Kirby Star Allies is an excellent 3D sandbox platformer that you should consider purchasing today. Especially if you have a friend group that you like to get particularly rowdy with because I can’t short sell how much fun the multiplayer can be. Also, understand the game only has a few maps and currently doesn’t support steam workshop for bonus content. So until we start to see more content buckle in for at least a five-hour experience that can be rewarding even through the single-player campaign. This has been my review of Kirby Star Allies I hope you consider purchasing this excellent indie game!
