Kirby: Planet Robobot Review

At first glance, Nintendo’s favorite platforming pink puffball may seem out of place in the cockpit of a large robot mech, utilizing giant buzzsaws, laser guns, and flamethrowers to demolish foes and roadblocks alike. While that robot-fueled destruction might make things a little easier than I’d like, its clever use of 3D-based puzzles in vibrant worlds, engaging boss fights, and a collection of enjoyable side-modes make up for pushover enemies.
