When someone steals some strawberry shortcake, the pink powerhouse sets out after them, learning new skills. Players can expect all the floating, jumping and battling of a classic Kirby game, but this time, Kirby’s copy abilities have been massively boosted. Not only can players mix and match copy abilities by using the stylus to drag them together inside Kirby's belly (located on the touch screen), but the powers themselves now have the ability to affect the environment, as well as foes. Burn trees and grasses with the Fire ability, freeze water with the Ice ability. In sub-game mode, this game also features multiplayer fun for up to four players, using either Multi-Card or DS Download Play over DS Local Area Network. [Nintendo] Expand

    The unique structure of the boss battles, hidden items to find and strategy involved with mixing abilities, managing your inventory - which is effectively Kirby's stomach - and deciding how to take down each enemy really makes Squeak Squad one of the best platform adventures you can find today.

    The only thing we didn't like about Squeak Squad is that it's a tad on the easy side...But there is no denying the ineffable charm of this title.
  3. Though Kirby Squeak Squad rarely finds a way to challenge you, it's a clever and cute enough platformer to recommend to most DS owners.
  4. Frantic battles with thieving rodents conclude each level but soon become repetitive and don't add much to the package. Nor do the small collection of simple multi-player mini-games, which include food gobbling contests and a shooting gallery.
  5. Undoubtedly a fun game. Anyone who has played a Kirby title before will not find anything particularly new here but everything is done in a very inventive and fun way.
  6. It's a well made game from a presentation standpoint, but the bulk of the game is simply far too simple to keep any but the most hardened Kirby fan glued to his or her dual screens.
  7. Kirby manages to star in yet another passable game for a Nintendo system. No, Kirby Squeak Squad isn’t ground-breaking by any means, but hey, you could do a lot worse.

    Kirby Squeak Squad is by far one of the best entries in the Kirby series, providing yet another wholesome Kirby experience while also addingKirby Squeak Squad is by far one of the best entries in the Kirby series, providing yet another wholesome Kirby experience while also adding some welcome additions to the game. Kirby Squeak Squad plays over 8 different worlds providing over 40 levels of gameplay. In each level, there are multiple treasure chest you can find and if you finish the level with them you will unlock new items that can be seen on the level select screen. These items vary between music sheets, different colours for Kirby, and extra abilities for Kirby's different copy forms. Kirby Squeak Squad adds 5 new copy abilities which are the Animal, Bubble, Ghost, Metal, and Triple Star. Each of these new copy abilities is interesting and are a wonderful addition to the already stellar roster. The game does not provide much difficulty although some may consider it somewhat more difficult than other games in the Kirby series because of the lack of companions. Kirby does not have the ability to have companions in this game, therefore, for each battle, Kirby is all alone. Squeak Squad does, however, add an inventory that serves as being able to carry around healing items and transformation items so that they can be used at a later point. The soundtrack is pleasant just like other Kirby games and the atmosphere is beautiful and very well done. Kirby Squeak Squad mixes up the formula of the series enough to be an absolute enjoyment to play, it may not take you to long to complete the game but with the abundance of collectibles completing the game fully will take some time, luckily each part of the game is so well-developed that it never feels like a chore even if you have to backtrack to a previous level.

    Cons
    No companion system
    Game may feel lacking in content for those who don't care about collectibles

    - A game made with recycled sprites and music of Amazing Mirror.
    - Some stages were lazy and not challenging.

    - The final boss is extra easy in comparison of the other entries.

    Conclusion: If you want to experience a good DS Kirby game, I recommend to play Super Star Ultra.
