The way I'd describe this game would be a version of Super Mario Bros. Wii, but geared towards maybe a younger audience. Anyone who likes Mario Bros. scroll style will love this game. Reccomend for anyone.

Kirby Epic Yarn - well done game!

I certainly agree with the praises I read. I would try not to repeat the same comments, but I can definitely add more:

After getting this 1 day after release, this is one of the most calming, non-frustrating, relaxing games I have ever played!

The gorgeously-rendered eye candy is woven throughout, in the theme of yarn and patchwork, which is completely innovative and creative in design. The story and theme are so well-done that you might actually think it might lack in gameplay - not so! (ie: Ivy the Kiwi was beautiful, but lacks any real depth.) Admittedly, the cuteness aspect is the only factor that might hold it back for "hardcore gamers", but it's a non-violent, pleasant experience for the younger or older age bracket.

I can play this before bed, and actually sleep better. Charming, heartwarming music & storytelling elements are in full effect and this side scroller does remind me of super mario wii (without the gruesome heart wrenching deaths!) Although you cannot "die", you certainly get penalized by losing your amassed gems. Personally, I LOVE this aspect - it's still a challenge, and there are many progressing puzzle-solving skills needed to find objects, avoid obstacles, and finding treasures to decorate your [Kirby & Prince Fluff's] house.

Creatively and artistically, I have not seen too many games offer this kind of quality design & gameplay. (Reminiscent of Orisinal games) Each screen and level I played had unique, different set of actions and puzzles to solve, so I was not bored at any point. I give it a high replay value.

I also was pleasantly surprised at almost every corner with another form this yarn character took. New controls and new skills are needed each time Kirby changes form. I laughed when I got to the desert scene. It's got wind - it's got sand - it's got multiple forms of movement equal or surpassing SMBros. I just can't say enough good about this game - this one's a keeper for me!

Lots of people I know says that this game's for kids. I say no to that, as I had tons of fun with this game and it's different mechanics. I would say that the only problem I have with it is it's rocky UFO flying controls, it's just a little too finicky, but I think it's overall a great game.
