Kirby test and the forgotten world

Kirby and the forgotten world begins while a large part of the Kirby planet is sucked through a dimensional fault. If the first image of the planet on which the game takes place is a beach on which Kirby wakes up (which is a wink at the opening of Link’s Awakening, as free that pleasant), we are at a distance tutorial The real decor waiting for us: the ruins of a modern world with skyscrapers, cars, distributors of drinks, etc.

The DA is very successful. If in Mario Odyssey , I’ve always found that New Donk City was jurowdling with the world of Mario and did not drink, I never had such a feeling in Kirby and the forgotten world. They managed to propose a DA that the two universes get married very well, while preserving a more realistic aspect to this post-apocalyptic world that what Dreamland had us had. And this throughout the adventure and different regions (each with a clean atmosphere) crossed. There are even some moments when the proposed scene (decorations, light) made me make a small stop to contemplate.

Once past the tutorial, we discover that the waddle-dees, also transported in this world, are removed by the premises. We then jump on our faithful star and we leave all save them.

The selection of the level takes this time by an overworld in which one can walk around, closed on our star. Our exploration is limited to unlocked areas and there is not much to do apart from a mission, a challenge or, sometimes, search a place to find some pieces or unveil a hidden challenge. It is possible to go through a menu to select a destination on the map and teleports. But this one is accessible only from the map. Leaving the village, we necessarily arrive at the beginning of the last unlocked area.

Indeed, once the waddle-dees saved during a mission, they all head to a base camp they are building little by little, giving access to various mini-games, a arena, distributors of collection figurines, some services and especially a craftsman able to improve the powers, but we will talk again later. Some stages of construction are related to progression in history and others are related to the number of waddle-dees saved (the game is quite wide there and we save without forcing much more waddle-dees than necessary for everything unlock).

Contents

The waddle-dees to save are only in the missions: it must be saved 3 to simply end the mission, between 3 and 5 are hidden through the mission (the number is indicated at the beginning of the mission) and 3 others are released By fulfilling for everyone a secret goal undergoing mission. These secret goals vary not bad from one mission to another (find a hidden area, beat a mini-boss with a certain power, beat a boss without taking damage, etc.). For a goal asking to perform an action several times, it is enough to perform the action once for the objective to be unveiled. And if at least one objective has not been discovered at the end of the mission, the first unveiled Secret Objective is automatically unveiled to facilitate completion if you want to redo the mission.

Some mission passages with the car, the Deltaple or the Russian mountain wagon propose at the end of just starting this passage rather than imposing to redo all the mission.

If the missions are the content a little classic, the challenges are added to that. It is a relatively short content in which Kirby is tested on the use of power (allowing to discover unknown aspects of certain powers as this episode lacks a complete description of each power). There are different degrees of difficulty, but it’s usually quite feasible. The challenge occurs above all when you want to beat the proposed time goal. It must be generally necessary to regain several times to optimize its actions. However, achieving this additional goal does not have great interest: finishing the challenge reports, the first time, a rare star (necessary to improve its powers) and finish under this optional goal of time reports, the first time, 50 pieces, resource basic game that is found anywhere (for example, a mission with 2-300 pieces).

Précisons que le jeu propose de jouer dans deux difficultés, une plus facile et une plus difficile. La plus facile propose des ennemis légèrement plus faibles et donne plus d’objets de soin. La plus difficile propose des ennemis légèrement plus résistants et récompense de quelques pièces supplémentaires. La différence entre les deux est assez subtile et l’avantage apporté par le mode plus difficile n’est pas transcendant. Quelque soit le mode choisi, la difficulté est clairement surmontable (le contraire aurait été étonnant dans un Kirby). Avec une progression plus maîtrisée de celle-ci que dans d’autre opus.

Gameplay

Si Kirby évolue cette fois sur trois dimensions, le principe du jeu reste assez similaire : un bouton pour attaquer (aspirer ou utiliser le pouvoir), un pour sauter/flotter, un pour abandonner son pouvoir et deux (les gâchettes) pour parer (et faire un dash).

Malheureusement, le jeu ne laisse le choix qu’entre deux configurations de touches plutôt que de laisser les modifier librement. Et, étrangement, si tout le long du jeu les interactions se font avec un appui de bouton ou un maintien de bouton, il y a un moment à la fin du jeu où il est demandé de masher les boutons, ce qui n’est pas idéal en terme d’accessibilité.

Entre la 3D et l’environnement de ruines de monde moderne, on a le droit à des niveaux assez intéressants, avec une construction de ceux-ci qui change pas mal des opus précédents. Et ce de façon plutôt positive. Avec notamment des secrets suffisamment cachés pour qu’on voit que c’est sensé être caché (et qu’on puisse parfois en rater), mais suffisamment visibles pour qu’on puisse les détecter en faisant un peu attention et sans avoir à se reposer sur un guide pour compléter le jeu.

Les espaces sont également plus larges, plus ouverts. Une solution assez élégante pour éviter de casser le jeu est de limiter l’altitude maximale du vol de Kirby en fonction de celle de son point de départ : il peut atteindre un endroit en sautant du haut d’une caisse, mais ne vole pas assez haut pour l’atteindre en partant du sol par exemple. Par contre, on a également régulièrement des murs invisibles, modélisés par des obstacles que Kirby pourrait aisément passer, mais qu’il ne peut pas surmonter.

Avec des zones plus ouvertes, le risque de chute est plus présent. Notamment lorsqu’on utilise le transmorphisme, pendant lequel on ne saute pas de la même façon et surtout pendant lequel on perd le vol. Heureusement, le jeu se contente de nous remettre sur le dernier endroit solide sur lequel on s’est tenu et de nous faire perdre un peu de vie (mécanique classique dans pas mal de jeu, mais dans les Kirby, la chute est généralement fatale). La mort n’arrive que lorsqu’on perd tous ses points de vie. Là encore, le jeu n’est pas très punitif puisqu’il nous fait perdre 100 pièces et ne nous fait pas recommencer depuis le tout début du niveau, mais au début de l’endroit où on est mort.

Là où le bat blesse avec cette évolution en 3D est qu’il n’est pas toujours évident de se rendre compte de la profondeur. Il faut prendre l’habitude de regarder l’ombre (si elle est présente). Mais il n’est pas toujours simple d’utiliser certains pouvoirs.

Passé le tutoriel, il est possible de jouer à deux en coop locale. Le second joueur est cependant limité à l’utilisation de Bandana Waddle-Dee qui ne peut pas avaler d’ennemis et donc utiliser les divers pouvoirs que propose le jeu ; il est à la place limité à l’utilisation de sa lance. Je n’ai pas eu l’occasion de tester ce mode de jeu et je ne peux donc malheureusement pas m’exprimer sur la gestion de la caméra à deux joueurs.

Powers

Kirby and the Forgotten Land - Full Game 100% Walkthrough
Là où tout le monde attend un Kirby, c’est sur les pouvoirs. Kirby et le Monde Oublié nous propose les pouvoirs habituels (Kirby avale un ennemi pour récupérer le pouvoir associé), le transmorphisme (Kirby met un objet dans sa bouche et débloque ainsi de nouvelles capacités) et un système d’amélioration de pouvoirs. Bref, une proposition qui fait rêver sur le papier. Mais qui n’est pas si riche que ça dans les faits.

On the side of the powers, there are two new power improvements (the hammer simply after the end of the game, the sword after the new missions) and the possibility of strengthening the powers. Each version of a power can be strengthened independently. Each reinforcement increases the power of power. Each reinforcement costs parts and rare stones (at this stage of the game, it implies Farmer the arena in a loop to be able to do) for a cost that seems indexed to the power of power. Which implies that I have not experienced enough with this new mechanics.

Conclusion

On one side, Kirby and the forgotten world does not fill all my expectations. I would have liked to find more powers and that they are a little more involved (a more advanced adventure dimension). As a result, I have trouble being convinced by this transmorphism that takes the place of powers that I would have liked to use. Even if, honestly, the phases with the car, the distributor and the ring are fun.

Then, although this 3D game area falls out quite well, it is not perfect and could be improved. As a result, for a new opus, I do not know if I would like a return to a 2D evolution or a new attempt in this direction that could achieve a more successful experience. We are not going to lie, although I wish this game more likes to have previous opus in some aspects, it’s not a good thing that a license stagnates too much and tubing habits to try new things is always Something to encourage (as long as they do not get lost).

On the other side, Kirby and the forgotten world offers a very complete and especially pleasant game experience, thanks to its universe and construction. The different objectives in the missions and challenges in parallel (sometimes frustrating if you want to do a good time) are particularly positive points.

Finally, the possibility of improving powers has a big potential. I wanted more powers so the fact that the improvement is as shyly disappointed me. But I also admit that it’s been a long time since I thought it would be interesting to have a more advanced customization for a gradual unlocking of new capacities for each power. So, a dream cut in his momentum. In addition, I am not a fan of being limited in its activities to strengthen the powers (but it is certain that this aspect is intended for the most enthusiastic players and especially very optional).

In short, even if it was not exactly the game I wanted, I could not help but spend a good time on it. I can not deny the obvious qualities of the title and can only recommend it.

_Test made on Switch by pertur from a version provided by the publisher.

Command Nintendo64 Bluetooth

nostalgia is a very strong factor in the video games and Nintendo knows it well. A few months ago we brought us back some games of n64 a online switch and, accompanying them, something very special: reissue of command of the original console . A limited edition that was exhausted as soon as you get on sale. The legacy of Nintendo 64 is still very powerful.

The same design 25 years ago

This reissue _ Bluetooth _ of the _ controller _ _ n64 is so faithful that it is difficult to distinguish it from the original. A design that impacted more than 25 years ago and still maintains its appeal. Since we opened the box it is clear that it comes from another time. One in which the console controls were not cloned.

Only the presence of the cable will tell us what each one is. In addition to the absence of slot for expansions as the 2021 has built-in vibration and does not admit peripherals. The rest equal to the original, as did Nintendo with the reissues bluetooth of the Controllers of and SNES .

The “ trident ” of N64 was a command designed to hold on three different ways. Although we always end up doing the traditional: Stick in the left hand and buttons on the right. Accustomed to the Controllers Current, this provision may seem strange but at the time it was a giant step. The command of switch weighs a little more than the original but its touch is still the same. Nintendo has taken care until the brightness of the buttons is faithful to the N64.

Battery is between 12 and 15 hours that are sufficient for long sessions. Your burden is fast and it does not have more than two hours to be at maximum. Apart from the technology bluetooth is a very simple command. And we will not have more to connect it to Switch with the USB cable that includes to synchronize it.

Essential in the N64 Games

It may be obvious but we must say that the N64 games were designed for this command. Play them with the _ joy-cons _ or with the _ pro controller _ it is uncomfortable by the arrangement of the commands. If you played the originals you will have memorized the frontal disposition and you will miss it. To supplant the four yellow c buttons by the _Stick Right of switch is not comfortable.

For this, and to enjoy them as they deserve, this reissue seems essential. It works without failures and maybe joystick be a bit harder than we would like. But maybe the original controls with which we have been compared to have already loose use of use. The buttons are very mechanical and give feeling of old school. Just just hear the CLAC they do. And a small detail: if we use this Controller sounds in the application are different. Nintendo takes care of his inheritance with meth.

Conclution

There is simply no better controller to play N64 on online switch. Having it in hand is returning to the sensations we had in the 90s with the original console. It is a command that impacted then but adapted to the new times.

Command & Conquer - Nintendo 64 Review - Ultra HDMI - HD
Its quality is outstanding like most Nintendo products. There are cheaper options but if we have a certain sports collector worthwhile. We must bear in mind that it will not be very useful outside N64 in online switch but our recommendation is to have it as a first option. There is nothing better like the originals to keep having fun with the retro games.
