An evil witch turns Dream Land into a "picture" world, and when Kirby confronts her, she uses her magic to turn him into a ball. Luckily, he finds a magic paintbrush she left behind and uses it to turn the DS stylus into a magic item capable of drawing rainbow paths. Kirby then sets out to regain his shape and save Dream Land.
  • The DS stylus has been magically infused with the power to paint. Players draw paths and stun enemies to guide Kirby through an adventure spanning seven massive worlds.
  • Kirby has been turned into a ball, so rainbow paths are the only way he can find power-ups and reach the gates of each world. Draw loops to make him speed up, make ramps to jump danger and draw walls to block laser beams and cannon blasts.
  • Touch enemies to stun them, then tap Kirby to dash into them and copy their abilities. Turn into Wheel Kirby, Burning Kirby, Stone Kirby and many more.
  • Try tough challenges in all seven worlds, take on bosses in unique battles or play mini-games.

Kirby Power Paintbrush, an amazing game. No-one had written a review, so I thought I would. Anyway, I bought this game pre-owned, but in new condition. It had been played for less that 2 and a half hours. What I don't understand is why someone would sell this within such a short time, as this is the most fun game I have ever played for the DS.

The game contains 7 levels, all with 3 stages on them, then there is a final 8th stage I think, I haven't got there yet. Kirby auto-rolls by himself, you draw rainbow lines for him to roll on. It may take some practice at first, as he rolls in the direction you draw the line. He accelerates on the line and you can tap him to speed him up a little, you can also draw him a loop to give him a bit of a boost. After each level there is a "boss stage", you have a choice of three bosses which are all different types of "sub game". By the final stage you should have beaten each boss twice. The levels start of fairly easy, but then get fairly challenging. You can defeat many enemies with different powers, which you will then acquire until you are hurt.

The game starts of with a tutorial if you haven't taken all this in. I would go on, but I would spoil all the excitement of finding new enemies with a new ability and such.

The game is similar to a Sonic game in a way, as you can fly your way through the game in a few hours, or you can take your time and finish it in a few days or weeks. I'd suggest, not to waste the fun of this game, to have another game to play as well, like an RPG such as FF3 or Pokémon. This is what I am currently doing, as it is making the fun of that cute little ball of Kirby last much longer.

Overall this is the most fun game I've played for the DS, not the best, and not the most exiting, but this game will defiantly bring you joy and put a smile on your face. If you are to impatient to swap between to games and make it last, there is still some fun in re-visiting levels and acquiring all the "medals" to be spent in the "swap shop", another fun feature of this game. You can also speed your way through a selected part of each level in "time trial" and also try to use as little ink as possible in a selected part of each level in "line trial".

I would defiantly recommend this game to anyone with a DS, and any Kirby fans. What I love about this game is you never use any buttons except form start "pause". You use the stylus in every part of it, from the menu to the game play. This adds to the fun.

I have never really been a big fan of Kirby because his games were never so good as the Mario or Donkey Kong games overall. Thats untill now where Kirby: Power Paintbrush really pushes the ds touch screen controls to it limits and it plays like a dream. You can hand draw rainbow paths for our pink Kirby of joy to move on and you can even make him do crazy loops on them too. The graphics are nice and cute with lots of great style. You can also use the rainbow paths to block laser beams or connon balls. The levels are very inventive and are a absolute joy to play. To beat your foes you must hit the enemy with the stylus first then roll into them with Kirby. Some enemies give Kirby special powers such as fire or motor speed. Kirby: Power Painbrush is the best example of how to use the ds touchscreen controls to there fullest after the wonderful Soul Bubbles. This really is a must have game for any platformer fan.

 Pure fun.

I'm around two hours into the game - this game is what Nintendo's idea of Innovation should be. You control the entire game through touch and it works so well - you draw on the screen to control Kirby, who continually rolls forwards. The premise is just so fun and original - if only there were more games that utilised the touch-screen like this one does. This should be a top seller, not something play doesn't stock any more. Please, if you own a DS, buy it!

 I agree!

Yes... why has there only been one review?! This page should be chocca full of reviews telling you to get this game immediatley! Value for money, cute, colourful, great gameplay and it manages to be progressivley harder throughout the game yet still be fun through out and not frustrating so its engaging for people of all ages and levels of skill. This game makes full use of the fun stylus, I've had my DS lite for over a year and when a game makes comprehensive, fun & clever use of the uniquie control system like this game has, it never fails to amaze and excite me. An absolute must have for the DS - there are so many shoddy DS games out there so spend your money wisely and get this!
