The beach is awesome. The life of a game blogger is a difficult one, my friends, so it's nice to step away from the monitor, sink into the white sands and catch up on that glorious invention known as sleep. Such a relaxing week could only bring good things, and I'm incredibly pleased to say it did: it gave good David a chance to talk about Electroplankton, one of the DS's most eccentric titles, and it gave me a chance to give the Kirby series a go.
You can imagine my delight, then, to finally gets my sandy hands on one of the DS's premiere platformers, to see how one cute and cuddly pink ball can inspire so much adoration. Kirby has made a number of appearances on everyone's favorite handheld, but this week's edition of Gaming to Go will be focusing on the first time the prolific cake eater showed his face on the portable. Kirby: Canvas Curse, in case you haven't given it a go, is all about drawing. You'll use the stylus exclusively to fling our spherical friend through many different adventures, all of which are short, colorful, and an absolute blast to play. Want to hear more? Point your stylus at the big button down there and race on to the next page!

For some reason, this is like the only Kirby game I hate...
Of course came out the around the same time as Meteos, so yeah.

This game was tons better than Squeak Squad.

They really need to do a sequel for WiiWare
Of course, they need to get Kirby on Wii (other than VC) anyway

ESC dude, this game is awesome, you should definitely pick it up. I played the absolute hell out of it.

Just because I didn't like the game, doesn't mean I hate ice cream. I mean this game was just ok.
I more of the guy who likes the original Kirby game play, like Kirby's Dreamland 2.

I want this game, I have been trying to buy it. But no place seems to sell it new (at least not without asking for 60 bucks). I refuse to pay more than 45 bucks for it (that's 35 with shipping). And I refuse to buy it used, because for all I know some idiot 7 year old used it to mess around with his first AR until he broke it.
If the game is so damn good it should still be buyable.

I love canvas curse, it was the game that made me believe that touch screen controls could be awesome. It took a while for the ds to hit its stride, but it's been going strong ever since!

Squeek Squad > Canvas Curse
I seriously didn't care for Canvas Curse at all...if they could have made Squeek Squad similar to Amazing Mirror, it might've been better, but my major problem with that was 6 hours after I bought Squeek Squad, I beat it. So, it was way too short.
