Poor Kirby has been afflicted by a curse in Kirby Mass Attack, causing the pink puffball to be split into ten smaller Kirbies. The Kirby group must work together to get back at their mysterious nemesis and undo the spell so Kirby can be his usual self again.
At the start of every stage, you're only a single Kirby who can't do much on his own. But once you've harnessed enough energy from eating fruit, you'll spawn another Kirby to help out with solving puzzles and defeating larger enemies. A swarm of ten Kirbies can pretty much handle anything thrown at them.
Like Kirby Canvas Curse, Mass Attack is controlled with the touch screen. Quick taps on the screen can make your Kirby horde run around quickly while holding down the stylus forces the swarm to huddle together and float around for a limited time.
Should a Kirby get knocked out from taking too many hits, they'll cutely drift away to Kirby heaven but you can bring them back down for revival in a weakened state. You'll want to keep an eye out for healing rings to recover your injured Kirbies.
Kirby Mass Attack releases September 19 for Nintendo DS.
