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.

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.

Kirby's Blowout Blast is a fun, short distraction that acts as a pseudo-retelling of Kirby's Dreamland. The levels are short, there aren't a large variety of bosses, and there is a notable lack of surprises, but replaying levels to earn a platinum level, or even just ace your score, is what makes this game almost worth the $6.99 purchase.

Kirby's Blowout Blast is a strange downloadable release in the popular series

Kirby's Blowout Blast is the very definition of short and sweet. It's a lunchtime diversion, that doesn't pack any surprises but does at least have a somewhat addictive speed-running nature if you're not easily distracted.

Kirby Blowout Blast brings a new take to the Kirby series, with different mechanics and a tinge of puzzling involved which works very well throughout the game. It could certainly improve on its difficulty level, as it turns out to be too easy and its lifespan would benefit from being extended but the basis for a good take on Kirby is here.

Kirby's Blowout Blast is an action-puzzle game which is perfectly suited for young gamers. The Nintendo 3DS game contains 20 new stages and new boss fights but it does not last long

You get what you give with Kirby's Blowout Blast: a little sum of money for a little game, fun in short bursts but repetitive if played for long time, far too easy and with less than a couple of hours of gameplay.
