A New Twist on a Pink Hero
Everyone's favorite, flexible pink hero is back in a whole new adventure for Nintendo DS with a unique gameplay twist, entirely new to the Kirby franchise. In Kirby: Mass Attack, an evildoer with a magic cane appears and amazingly splits Kirby into ten pieces, but resilient as ever, Kirby is not only able to keep all ten parts of himself in close proximity, but to also control each of these simultaneously. Kirby then sets off on a journey to find a way to return to his original form, but there will be challenges and puzzles to face in this, all of which will require your help if Kirby is to become whole again.
Players use the stylus on the touch screen to control a swarm of up to ten Kirby characters at once. Together multiple Kirbys can help players defeat enemies and find treasure. The number of Kirby characters under a player's control is important, as some challenges require a specific number of Kirby characters in order to be solved. And when the number of Kirby characters is increased, players can gain the upper hand. Players can control each Kirby character in a variety of ways using their stylus on the touch screen. For example, single Kirby characters can be launched into the air with a flick of the stylus, or players can make a swarm of Kirby characters dash to a given point by tapping on that spot on the touch screen multiple times. As with previous Kirby games, success is rewarded with in-game medals -- gold, silver and bronze -- which are handed out according to how you succeeded. By collecting medals hidden throughout the various stages, players can unlock a wide variety of additional mini-games, each with its own distinctive challenges.
