Kirby’s Avalanche, originally released in 1995 for the Nintendo Super Famicom, is a highly entertaining multiplayer puzzle game. Players must face off by competing against each other to eliminate the colorful and mesmerizing blocks from the playing field before their opponent does. With its simple yet unique gameplay style, Kirby’s Avalanche has become one of the most beloved puzzle games ever made.
Kirby’s Avalanche resembles games such as Puyo Puyo and Tetris in that players must strategically drop blocks onto the playing field to complete lines and trigger combos. The goal is to create 4-block wide diagonal lines that go from one side of the playing field to another while also eliminating blocks by creating standing lines. Points are earned when lines are completed, and combos can be triggered by creating several chains of blocks and connecting them in various ways. Depending on how these combos are created, additional points will be earned.
Players can also use special items to their advantage. These items range from bombs that will clear out large areas of blocks on the playing field, to powerups that will give players an extra boost of speed or an increase in points earned for completing lines.
Kirby’s Avalanche features a vibrant graphical style with many bright colors used to bring life into the game’s characters and backgrounds. The graphics have held up quite well over time even though they were created 20 years ago, showing just how impressive they were when they first came out.
The animations are smooth and detailed as well, making it easier for players to focus on strategy as they play rather than worrying about a choppy or slow frame rate.
