This is the first game in the series to take place entirely in 3D. Unlike the main games, Kirby does not have access to his copy powers this time around. Instead, the adorable pink hero will have to rely on his ability to inhale objects (and enemies) and spit them with deadly force. The more he consumes at once, the more powerful the attack he can unleash.
The game features 25+ stages with a focus on earning points. Well aimed shots can take out multiple enemies at once for higher scores. Players can also receive a streak bonus if they manage to avoid missing. While this is a spin-off, this entry still features some platforming. Memorable enemies from the series such as Kracko Jr and King Dedede make an appearance as well.
Kirby’s Blowout Blast was developed by Nintendo’s HAL Laboratory.
