When it comes to Nintendo’s plethora of accomplished platformers, Kirby often gets a bad wrap. The little ball of pink loveliness is adored by many, but his platforming adventures seldom have the same impact as those of Mario and friends. That being said, they’re still fantastic little platformers in their own right.
Kirby: Planet Robobot is positively jam-packed with variety, despite its initial simplicity. Placed in a cute and charming 2.5D plain, you'll find yourself controlling a variety of different mechanical robots with their own useful abilities. Each robot lends the stage a level of unpredictable charm, transforming our once-adorable pink protagonist into an unstoppable robotic machine.
If you’re a sucker for cute, accessible platformers that are perfect for playing on the move, Planet Robobot is well worth checking out. Kirby: Triple Deluxe is also an underrated gem.
