I didn't pay $30 for a damn one-level tech demo...
It's got some nice graphics, and the sound is well-done. Playing with a friend is fun.
Sometimes, you find short games. Games that take you 6 hours to beat. Sometimes you find really
short games, like Katamari Damacy, that take you 3 hours to beat. But with this game, if you play it for 5 minutes, you've experienced just about the whole thing. Nintendo's decision to sell a tech demo
is just plain stupid. They've released this inane thing, and stuff like Starfy and Famicom Detective Club stays stranded in Japan? For shame.
The Bottom Line
This should have been the free card included with the DS instead of the Metroid demo. It's fun and somewhat replayable, but it's just nonsense to pay money for what is essentially a glorified tech demo. Don't pay over $10 for this. If you're expecting a full fledged platformer, but can settle for one level, this is your game. If you really want a decent length game that uses the basic idea behind this title, check out Kirby: Canvas Curse.
