Kirby Squeak Squad DS lets you take the deliciously fun shape-shifting pink guy on a platforming trek, storing and mixing up skill sets.

I adore Kirby games, and Squeak Squad DS is no exception. You're jumping down holes, climbing up ladders, and navigating mazes of course. But the main task of Kirby-land is to figure out what items are available to eat - and then to combine together multiple items to come up with cool new techniques.

The activation sequence is a bit tricky - you have to spin your finger around the four directions of the D pad to turn things on - but it's well worth it. The cool combinations you can come up with are great fun!

You're allowed to store items in "bubbles" in Kirby's stomach, which is what the bottom half of your DS screen is dedicated to. This lets you choose what item to use in a certain situation, or to combine them together if you wish.

Even more fun, as you go you unlock color options for Kirby himself. Interested in a blue kirby, or a citrus-colored Kirby? You can do it! Of course, many traditionalists will insist that Kirby only comes in one color, that is Pepto-Bismol Pink.

The game is well done, in that it's both simple enough for younger players and entertaining enough for older players as well. It's relatively short, so that you can use it to pass the time while waiting in line at the supermarket or taking a bus ride without worrying about memorizing arcane combinations of keys or memorizing a rule book of negotiation tactics. You have just as much fun replaying it, aiming to unlock every chest you find and to get through as quickly as possible.

I admit that I still adore the days of The Crystal Shards and hope that these styles of games will come out on the Wii in the future.

Kirby's Canvas Curse was a Nintendo DS sleeper and one of the highest-rated Nintendo DS games in early 2005. One of the first fully-featured Nintendo DS games, Canvas Curse showed what the DS could do with lots of touch screen innovation, creative graphics, and deep gameplay features. Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby's sophomore DS effort, is nothing like its predecessor. It is instead much more like the NES, SNES, N64, and Game Boy adventures of this beloved ballooning Nintendo character, and as a result it offers much of the same.

Strawberry shortcake is quite a tasty morsel. With this in mind, one must understand why Kirby is so inclined to tracking down and finding the thief of his delicious treat. After finding out that the normally devious King Dedede is innocent of charge, Kirby discovers the Squeak Squad, a menacing band of baddies, is responsible. This leads to his trek through eight cute, colorful worlds in search of his dessert. The story is so bare-bones that it's hard to call it anything but ridiculous and unimportant, but one must ask how important a 2D platformer's storyline really is in the first place.

With the 2D platformer standards already in sight, Kirby hits on all cylinders: the levels are fun and have a great design. Enemies fill up every one of them, some hidden in walls for an extra challenge. Kirby's suck-things-up skills come in handy like always, and there are more than 20 abilities to help the little guy get through each level and defeat his countless enemies. These abilities are mostly familiar; you'll spit fire, blow ice, and even emit sparks. Rather than only destroying enemies, some abilities affect your environment-for example, blowing ice over lava keeps the molten substance from burning Kirby.

(Scroll to the bottom for point-form pros and cons of the game.)

I have to start off with a warning -- Kirby Squeak Squad is an incredibly teeth-rotting, sickeningly cute game. And for those that played Canvas Curse, be aware that Kirby's brought back his old platforming style for this one.

Visually, it's vibrant, colourful, and has those old school sprites that many of us older gamers welcome and are used to. Musically, it has all the cute little Kirby tunes that should be familiar for veteran Kirby gaming fans; the tunes are simple, fun, whimsical, and "childish" which perfectly compliments the little pink puffball.

The story of Kirby Squeak Squad is very simple: Someone steals Kirby's shortcake and he's out to find out who and get it back! Since it's a platformer, you really can't expect some complex, mind-provoking plot, can you? :P Plus, it's Kirby who, in recent years, seems more and more targeted at the younger, pre-teen crowd anyway.

The game has you guiding Kirby through 8 colourful yet dangerous worlds. He comes with his standard abilities which are jumping, ballooning-and-arms-flapping-to-fly, and, of course, inhaling and copying enemy skills. The gimmick this time is that you can carry more than one ability -- but only if you found them in bubbles. Up to 5 bubble items or abilities are stored in the copy palette which is on the bottom/touch screen of the DS. Touch an ability bubble within the palette and Kirby will don the headwear or costume of the one you chose thus gaining a new ability. Touch an item bubble and he'll reap the healing or life-extending benefits of it! The player is also free to mix them to get new items and abilities. (There are some exceptions though.
