Ivy The Kiwi? (DS) Review


Can a DS platform game really be so cute that it hurts? Jeffrey Harris checks in with his full review of the Nintendo DS game, Ivy The Kiwi?

Ivy the Kiwi?


It is rare to see new IP. It is even rarer for that new IP to be a two-dimensional platformer. That is what we have though. Ivy the Kiwi? is the newest game created by Yuji Naka, the man responsible for Sonic the Hedgehog. Ivy the Kiwi? is not just a...

Good progression of techniques, Gradual difficulty curve

Throwing is tricky due to lack of direct interaction with the environment

Ivy The Kiwi?


A phone games makes a pleasant transition.

While the story mode’s brevity betrays Ivy’s roots as a Windows Phone game, the 50 extra challenge stages and competitive multiplayer modes flesh out the package nicely. The four-player races offer some nice backstabbing pleasures, though they don’t...

A cute (and sometimes frustrating) puzzle platformer from famed Sonic programmer Yuji Naka.

Ivy the Kiwi? review


The creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, Yuji Naka, is behind Ivy the Kiwi. That is the game’s biggest marketing talking point, as is quite understandable. Yet it is fair to say that this is one of the more creative and fun games on the Nintendo DS this year.

Ivy the Kiwi is a simple game. There’s really not a lot to write about. If you liked Kirby: Canvas Curse, one of my personal favorite DS games, you will probably enjoy Ivy the Kiwi. Yuji Naka has proven that he still has it in him.

Ivy the Kiwi?- NDS


Ivy The Kiwi? was all over pretty quickly in my hands, but it was an enjoyable experience. The short nature of the levels, the apparent lack of a story with any meaning and the satisfyingly original play mechanic make it a great portable title.

Ivy the Kiwi?- NDS


Shortcomings aside, Ivy the Kiwi is a solid, above-average casual game that's likely to have platformer fans hooked, for a few hours at least.

Ivy the Kiwi?- NDS


Clearly an enjoyable title, Ivy the Kiwi is worthy of a purchase by anyone with a passing interest in puzzle based platformers, but do bear in mind that patience is necessary. As cute as everything looks, this is a more hardcore game than you'd...
