A great spin on the Kirby formula
If your a big fan of the old style of 16 bit platformers than this is probably a great game for you. The "Yarn" graphics look really cute and the formula has been tinkered with enough that it feels like a fresh new take without feeling alienating. It has to be emphasized that the graphics aren't just a gimmick, its a fully realized world of yarn so to speak and you can tell a lot of care went into making the game unique and special. For instance, every time a new stage opens up it goes through a whole animation that is fun to watch (and some of them are very funny.)
There are also plenty of challenge stages which include your usual fare like Time Trials, collecting a certain amount of beads within a time limit, etc. You also have a room that you can decorate yourself with items collected during missions and bought at the two shops in the game. The soundtrack is also noteworthy, many of the tracks are new but they made sure to include some remixed versions of the classic songs from Kirby titles past.
If your a fan of the Kirby series or just a fan of platforming goodness you can't go wrong with Kirby's Epic Yarn.
