Kirby's Epic Yarn - Wii

Kirby's Epic Yarn is a 2D platformer for Wii that blends classic Kirby gameplay with new abilities, functionality and more. Kirby's first console platform game since the Nintendo 64 days, Kirby's Epic Yarn introduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the gameplay and allows the ever-morphing Kirby to take on a variety of new forms. It's a one-of-a-kind platformer that lets players explore high and low for hidden objects, experience fun adventure and even join with a second player in a co-op play mode.

Kirby Offers a New Take on String Theory

Kirby's tendency for gobbling up items has set off another chain events. This time it has to do with an odd looking tomato-like object. Looking utterly delicious, down it goes. The problem is that it belongs to an evil wizard who reacts by sending Kirby to another dimension where everything, and everyone, even Kirby, are made of yarn. But that is a decision that the Wizard may yet regret, as Kirby joins forces with new friends in the strange land to unravel the plot of the wizard.


Like all Kirby games, Epic Yarn is a side-scrolling platformer, but gameplay is different in this adventure. In its gameworld, everything is made of yarn or fabric, including Kirby and the game levels themselves. Kirby is of course pursued by the minions of the evil wizard that sent him to the gameworld, but in this world Kirby does not swallow enemies to dispatch them. Instead he uses a whip of yarn to stun them. Curled into the shape of a yarn ball, he can then toss them at additional enemies and/or obstacles. Kirby's movements are different as well. He no longer floats the way he did in previous games. Instead he glides in parachute form, or takes the shape of vehicles such as a train, a top, a truck, a UFO, a tank and others that are appropriate for the challenge at hand. Throughout the gameplay area are hidden beads, that if maintained, maximize points. There are also hidden levels that are revealed as Kirby pulls on zippers and loose threads encountered. Standard level progression is achieved via a series of patches that players receive on completion of levels. These are added to a tapestry by Kirby which results in the next level being revealed. The game also features two-player co-op through the entire game in which the second player takes on the role of an additional character from the game and works together with Kirby to access new areas.

Reviewer: Janice  
Fun game and it lasts away to play. Hate when I get a game and it ends in a few days. Been playing this awhile and still going strong. You wont be sorry you bought it.

Great stress reliever!, June 5, 2013
Reviewer: N. Nikki from MD  
This has got to be one of the most soothing games I have ever played. The music is so peaceful, and the game is, too. It is not a violent game. It is one of the most restful games I have ever come across. Not only is it pretty, the controls are easy, too. And if you have had a stressful day it is a great stress reliever! The music, controls and pretty scenery make for a VERY engaging game. And if you are a parent, you will not have to worry about what your kids are playing! But remember to pick up a copy for yourself, too!

Beautiful game May 27, 2013
Reviewer: Maverick 264  
Pros: One of the most originally creative and artistically designed game on any console this generation. Excellent soundtrack. Offers a whole new way to experience the Kirby Franchise.

Cons: This game was very easy to beat and the fact you couldn't die at all in any of the levels could be a turnoff for more challenge wanting players.

Other Thoughts: This is easily one of the most originally creative designed games I've ever played, the whole yarn design and mechanics will offer a whole new experience for gamers to play as Kirby. This is also another game for wii owners to pick up.

Reviewer: burch959903 from Mililani, Hawaii  
The game is very visual and has mand action packed levels. The laso is the best feture to peel off some of the background and have lots of fun with kirby.
