General Information

Available on:Nintendo 3DSJul 6, 2017

Publisher: Nintendo

Genre: Platformer

Kirby is ready for action in a whole different dimension—the third dimension! Have a blast inhaling foes and blowing them away in 3D environments across 25+ stages. Inhale enough enemies and you can launch one huge Blaster Bullet capable of wiping out a troop of Waddle Dees. Now's your chance to battle iconic bosses like Kracko Jr and King Dedede in 3D! Inhaling multiple enemies to launch Blaster Bullets is a great way to pump up your score and go for a bronze, silver, or gold star. Another way to score big is to rack up a combo by continuously firing at enemies without missing. Or you could always just collect coins as you jump across platforms. As you progress, you'll unlock EX stages, which provide a tougher challenge to master. Celebrate your victories by tapping a Kirby series amiibo figure to build a statue in the plaza that plays new music!

Blowout Blast is another game I'll stuff in the "Kirby" folder on my 3DS, occasionally going back to it when I have a few moments to spare.

For around £6.29 or your regional equivalent, Kirby's Blowout Blast is a surprisingly packed game for the price. Sure it won't take long to blitz through the five worlds that first time, but the real appeal is in trying to get as high a score as possible and achieve those ranks. If you're just looking for a short game that's fun with a slightly novel concept for the platform, then Kirby's Blowout Blast is certainly a better proposition than the free-to-play Team Kirby Clash Deluxe.

A quick game that will delight the fanbase and nothing more.

In a time of games that stretch into the tens of hours, it's nice to have a game full of short gameplay bursts designed to be replayed over and over, Blowout Blast is a wonderful little distraction.
