    It’s not the most difficult of games, as Kirby titles generally aren’t, but it is enormous fun, and up there as one of my all-time favourite 3DS titles.

    A charming, fast and original 2d platform, pretty to see and enjoyable to play.

    Kirby: Planet Robobot sets a new gold standard in a franchise already renowned for excellent platforming.

    In spite of the recycled, hence reliable machinery, Kirby: Planet Robobot is simply mecha powerful.

    In all, there’s a surprising amount of content, but it’s only the story mode that’s worth playing.

    Like its iconic hero, Planet Robobot is light and airy, and a little on the short side, but it takes such a range of forms that it always feels fresh and new.

    Planet Robobot is decently made but leans way too much on it’s predecessor Triple Deluxe (and every other Kirby platformer) to keep us interested. Time for something new. [July 2016 / page 070]

Planet Robobot takes on aKirby Planet Robobot follows very closely to Triple Deluxe and many parallels can be drawn between the two games. Planet Robobot takes on a similar visual style and we see the return of the duel plain level layout that Triple Deluxe had. But while Planet Robobot takes a lot from Triple Deluxe, it also throws in a few new ideas. The biggest one being the new Robobot Armor that Kirby can ride, which essentially replaces the Hypernova from Triple Deluxe. The Robobot Armor is capable of heavy damage on both enemies and even the environment in some cases and can also copy certain abilities of enemies. And I think it's an awesome feature. On top of normal puzzle rooms that the Kirby series is good with, the Robobot Armor opens up new ideas for new puzzles. However the Robobot Armor can only have a certain amount of abilities and they aren't as diverse as Kirby with said powers, but they are capable of solving unique puzzles. On the topic of copy abilities, the line up in this game is really great, mixing in the series staples such as Fire, Ice, Sword and Beam, adding in new ones such as ESP, Doctor and Poison and reviving some old abilities not seen in a long time, such as Jet, a revamped Smash ability and my personal second favorite of all time, Mirror. The world themes were pretty awesome as well and the added robotic appearance each world had made the areas look really nice. While the main game won't take that long (if you're really dedicated to it), the amount of stuff to do afterwards still makes up for it. The game still isn't that hard either, but the Kirby gameplay itself more than makes up for it in my opinion. So overall, I really loved this game. While generally easy, it's still a fantastic Kirby game with an awesome new feature, an amazing set of copy abilities and classic fun stuff to do when the story is all said and done. Expand

    This is the best Kirby game of all-time.

    When Kirby is in a mech it feels so awesome to punch and crush the bigger enemies that you normally couldn't!

    There's really glorious music and a whimsical atmosphere for each unique level.

    The collecting of stickers is a lot of fun but I wish more could be attached to the mech...

    Play immediately.

It is fun and casual but also has a challenging aspect to it. I love how Nintendo includes all of the old Kirby power ups but also introduces new ones not just for Kirby but also for the Robot.

    The Amiibo's also add a fun and exciting twist to the game.
