Kirby and The Amazing Mirror 

 

Family Friendly Gaming received a request to do some retro reviews. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror is one such game on the Gameboy Advance. This game has been re-released on the Nintendo 3DS for those of us that are ambassadors. Kirby is a pink little hero who can inhale any enemy. If that enemy has a special power then Kirby can start to use it. Kirby can lose the power if he is hit. It can be recaptured if the player is quick enough.

The visuals and music are classic Kirby in this hand held title. I enjoyed seeing Kirby characters of different color in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. This GBA game is also long for a game of its type from that time period. I checked Amazon and Kirby & The Amazing Mirror goes for around of the price of existing hand held games - used. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror contains violence in multiple forms. The main one is Kirby inhaling the strange looking creatures. There is also using the various powers/weapons on them.

The one major complaint I have against Kirby & The Amazing Mirror is it is too easy to get stuck in an infinite loop. This happens because a treasure chest was missed in one of the levels. I played over and over again until I found the path to one little treasure chest. This kind of replay value becomes frustrating - extremely quickly.

I love the different suits Kirby can get from the enemies in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. The different powers change the game play in amazing and fun ways. The violent aspect of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror does get old. I got tired of beating the same guys over and over again. There is no blood or gore in this hand held title.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror teaches us to fight off the evil. To use our skills and powers to stop them and their evil plans. Only if the real world was as easy. We have to go through laws and procedures to remove the evil ones from our midst. And then we have to deal with those who want to defend the evil ones. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror is an older game where action was the main focus.
