Check out these quotes from Ivy the Kiwi? Mini reviews & previews
"I can't talk about Ivy the Kiwi? without mentioning famed Sonic programmer Yuji Naka. After parting ways with Sega in 2006, Naka founded Prope Ltd. and slowly started releasing quirky downloadable games that were nothing if not unique. While many of those minigames were good, clean fun, Ivy the Kiwi? has the kind of innovative spark that longtime Naka fans will love to see again. Ivy the Kiwi? is both the hero of this game and an awkward reply to the game's main objective. As the omnipotent, ivy-clad hand of god, it's your task to wrangle the poor little hatchling named Ivy who needs help finding her mother. Since Ivy is so distraught about her mother's absence, you have to use three magical vines to guide and guard her to the exit. Sound a little tricky to pick up? Well, only for a little while."

But the man has his own company now (Prope), and is moving on to new projects, such as last year's Let's Tap for Wii. Next up for Prope is Ivy the Kiwi, which trades spiny mammals for spiny birds and speed for… penmanship? It’s a Wii and Nintendo DS platformer that resembles classics such as Kirby's Canvas Curse and “casual” smash hit Line Rider – you draw lines on the screen for Ivy to walk on... ..."
"Ivy the Kiwi? may not feature the deepest mechanics on the Nintendo DS, but it does offer engaging gameplay and a highly addictive design, both of which make this small-scale game easy to recommend to gamers."
