Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a brisk, gorgeous platformer that has no qualms with taking off the training wheels.

It's a minor blot, though, as elsewhere this lives up to the legacy of its predecessor, and takes it to new, interesting places. Kirby rarely gets a starring role in Nintendo's line-up, which is something of a shame, as the Rainbow Curse is another unconventional treat.

With a handmade look, and a different approach to platforming, Rainbow Curse is one of Kirby's strongest spin-offs, and one of the best uses of the Gamepad to date.

A tepid sequel to Kirby: Power Paintbrush, that even with its short running time barely manages to stretch it's small collection of ideas across a whole game.

Rainbow Curse is different from any other platformer out there. I got frustrated by Kirby's insistence on staying rolled into a ball, but plenty of moments of innovation and fun appear throughout

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse shines because it's a simple game that delivers superbly on a simple concept. You're repeating many of the same actions again and again, but with each new stroke it feels more refined, more graceful.

Ten years later, this frustrating follow-up to Canvas Curse feels shallow and soulless by comparison.

A happy platforming game that appears to be made out of clay and has just one odd design flaw.

Don't let Rainbow Curse's relatively small length put you off; it's a sublime experience that completely washes its hands of the padding most games employ to justify a retail release. If you're used to finishing games out of a sense of weary obligation, expect to be pleasantly surprised when this latest Kirby spin-off leaves you fully satisfied by the end of its final level.
