The Legendary Starfy Review

Corpse Party is the original Windows edition of the cult classic horror game that gained a considerable fanbase when released on Sony’s. Please enter your birthday. Corpse party wiki. Corpse Party is an adventure game that uses hand-drawn 2D sprite and tile art to tell the story of a group of Kisaragi Academy High School students who are trapped in a haunted elementary school.

Starfy is one of those franchises that always baffled me. Here has a Mario/Kirby-inspired platformer developed by a talented team (TOSE), and one that the company has partial rights of. Medieval europe castles drawings. The franchise has seen five iterations, including a cancelled Game Boy Color debut game back in 2000. Still, despite the huge success the series has seen, not a single one of these games have seen a US release. But wait we like great games, and Nintendo likes money. Isn't there something we can work out here?Well apparently there is, as Nintendo's quest for more cash is also going to help our current quest for better DS games. Starfy has finally hit in the US – after plenty of complaining and 'What to import' articles from yours truly – and yeah, it's as good as we all expected it would be.

The Legendary Starfy (DS) review by Jason Venter. In case you're not satisfied with a diet of constant platforming and a steady trickle of new abilities, there are a variety of diversions along the way. For example, one stage finds Starfy rolled into a snowball. He'll barrel downhill and you have to move and jump—in the limited fashion available—to avoid falling into fatal gaps.

Unless you thought it'd suck. It doesn't suck. You should buy it. Starfy is essentially an aquatic spin on the Kirby franchise, mixing up a lot of the same mechanisms and play styles as Nintendo's pink puff, and throwing in a little bit of other classic gaming influence as well. The game has an odd beach/surfer vibe like Cool Spot on Super NES, there are monster suits to hop into like in Little Nemo: The Dream Master, but the whole game is undeniably Kirby influenced more than anything else. With that being said, the design and attitude is 100% its own. Starfy runs and swims around with very round, bouncy animations, the game isn't afraid to cut into chaotic hand-drawn skits and random character discussions, there's an odd emphasis on collecting clothes and accessories for a 3D modeled rendition in the main options screen – Why?

The Legendary Starfy Review

Well, why not I guess - and there's a seemingly never-ending amount of in-level ideas that spurt up every stage or two. Team that with a strange (but welcomed) addition of optional two player boss fights and levels, wireless mini-games that take inspiration off everything from Point Blank to Cooking Mama, and a never-ending, undeniable 'Japanese' feel to it all (chaotic, inexplicable, and entertaining as all heck) and you've got an idea from what to expect from Nintendo's odd little starfish-man.
