Comic Mischief, Mild Cartoon Violence
This is an action platformer in which players assume the role of Kirby, a small spherical character that must defeat an evil sorcerer. Players guide Kirby characters through themed levels, avoid various obstacles/hazards, and defeat “cartoony” creatures and larger bosses (e.g., robots, bats, chickens, fish); mild impact sounds and screen-shaking effects occur as enemies are tossed to the ground. Some levels allow players to shoot oversized missiles from a tank or engage in turn-based battles, resulting in a loss of characters' hit points. One enemy comically wiggles his buttocks at Kirby if players miss a target; another boss attack is accompanied by belching sounds.
