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

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.

Despite the above, you’ll keep coming back for more. Ivy’s imaginative control scheme, beautiful story-book world, and catchy melodies will see you through every last one of its 100 imaginative levels. There's even the option to play against 3 of your...

When someone mentions gaming masters such as Sakamoto-san (Kirby, Super Smash Bros.) or Miyamoto-san (Zelda, Mario) in connection to a new game, the gaming community can't help but get slightly hot under the collar. The effect is similar when creator...

Ivy the Kiwi? isn’t the perfect game, but it breaks the mould by being different, and bringing with it some of the gaming styles that haven’t been seen since the launch of the DS console. If you are looking for something to boot up for a couple of...

Games review - Ivy The Kiwi? hatches a plan

 

The creator of Sonic The Hedgehog has created a new platform heroine, but is she or her game capable of having anywhere near the same impact?

The core controls are fairly ingenuous and learning how to exploit them can be a lot of fun. Plenty of levels and Ivy is fairly cute

Very limited concept, that get olds pretty quickly. Some control iterations and not enough room for strategy. Dull, unexciting graphics

It's not Sonic and it's not meant to be, but this dowdy little platformer puzzler is uncomplicated to a fault.
