Guinea-Game-Review #2: Kirby: Squeak Squad
Guest Post By Guinea
Its meeeeeeee! Anyways, if you couldn’t figure out from the title, this is my 2nd game review! This time, however, I’m reviewing a DS Game. Like I’ve said before, just request a game and I’ll review it 😉
So, here’s the game info:
System: Nintendo DS
Developer: HAL Laboratory/Nintendo
Rating: E (Mild Cartoon Violence)
Kirby is a total suck-up. He sucks, though. But unlike Master Chief, it helps that he sucks. In fact, its part of the story line, and the main point of the game. I was hoping to get this review out before Kirby: SSU came out, but no such luck. Kirby: Squeak Squad sticks with the classic Kirby strategy: Suck up your enemies to copy their abilities, use those abilities to defeat other enemies. But, is Kirby Squeak Squad as good as other Kirby titles like Kirby’s Adventure or the Crystal Shards? TO THE REVIEW!!
Pretty good. The graphics are definitely its strongest point
Its always fun to suck up enemies and see what powers Kirby gets, but it is never a challenge, most levels are pretty easy.
Instead of nightmares in Dreamland or the fountain of dreams drying up. Kirby is just chasing after a piece of delicious shortcake. The plot doesn’t thicken until Meta Knight swoops in….
Length/Things To Do: 8/10
The game is lengthy enough to entertain, but not much after that, since the mini-games are just OK, and collecting treasure chests/shortcake chests (call it what you want) is fun, but not super entertaining
Touch Screen Usage (Not Included In Overall): 2/5
You can mix & match item trophies on the lower screen, but other than that there is not much…..
Worth A… (Buy, Rent or Toss)
Definitely worth a rent, but its debatable if its worth buying.
- Like Kirby’s Adventure and Kirby: Super Star, Squeak Squad is a scrolling game. However, unlike most others. There is no time limit. Take your time through each level to discover chest and other secrets
- Every chest you find contains an item. Some even contain Spray Paint cans, which you can use to change Kirby’s colour!
- You can mix & match power-ups (item trophies) on the touch screen, but don’t get to greedy, or you will only end up with a single star to spit out
On Boss Battles mode, walk a little past the door when you are acquiring power-ups, and you can find the Triple Hammer, which can only be found in the final level of the game, making it the rarest power up of them all
Hope Ya Enjoyed The Review!
