Incredible presentation here, definitely feels maybe a little more like a yoshi game than a Kirby game but who cares, its a really solid 2D platformer where every level sets out to delight you moreso than challenge you. I don't understand how so much of the conversation around when this game came out was how you can't die, because seeing hundreds of beads drop out of you every second you're getting lifted out of a pit is way more devastating than just losing a life.

It's like if Banjo-Tooie's level structure was actually good and sane. Does the thing that game does where a level is like one big puzzle with multiple smaller ones to solve within it, but its not designed maliciously. Appreciate the way it really doesn't play like what has been standardized as the "good 3d platformer moveset", but still feels really good to nail. Has fall damage because its not cowardly. In general it feels like what Rare was going for with its harder platformer moments like Rusty Bucket Bay or all of Conker's Bad Fur Day but just not nearly as mean, but mean enough to be satisfying to beat. I think a lot of 3D platformer people have turned on Rare's n64 platformers for several reasons, but games like this show that there's still plenty of right lessons to take from those games besides "have a joke about balls" or "have more collectibles than God"
