Ivy the Kiwi?

Recommended Posts

Oh, you already got that over there? I think it'll arrive in october here, but it's already on my watchlist as well :)

From what I've read on various web sites, its best to grab this title ASAP as it appears to not have a very big distribution and very few stores are carrying it. A couple of gamers posted on GoNintendo that they finally gave up trying to find it at GameStop, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, etc and just ordered it from Amazon.

It's a pretty clever and fun side-scroller. You don't control the Kiwi, you just help it through the levels by setting up ivy vines. While I do like it, and it is pretty fun, it seems like something that would have been better off as a WiiWare title.

Interesting.

 

This game looks ideal for the DS. I'm not totally sold on it for the Wii. Yes, it's approximately like using a stylus on a DS. Just not sure if I can justify the purchase for the Wii or not. At the very least, I'll grab the DS version. The DS is my late late-night with Craig Ferguson pal. :D

 

Hex.

I haven't had time to look, but supposedly there is a DS demo of Ivy the Kiwi? available online from now until Sept. 5th.

Sounds like Lemmings to me.

 

Not that it's a bad thing. Just doesn't sound as original to me as it seems to others...

You know after reading more reviews it does seem like its more of a Wiiware title. I agree it probably would make a good DS game. I still would like to try it out. I bet this is a title that won't be around long as someone mentioned.

IGN reviews Ivy HERE.

 

Summation: 7.5 and worth the buy, whether on Wii or DS.

I might end up getting the wii version since I don't enjoy portables as much. It is kind of hard to find. Amazon does have it though through buy.com I think.

I've played the DS version tonight. I ordered it about a week ago but just got to playing it. It's very good. I'm at level 6-3 so far. Pretty nice challenge if you're trying to get all the feathers (they're like the big stars in Mario). Controls very well, though it's tricky to get rid of unwanted vines.

 

I recommend picking it up to anyone who enjoys simple, addictive action-puzzlers.

Not really like Lemmings at all. If you want something to compare it to, it's much more like "Yoshi: Touch & Go". Go check out gameplay footage on YouTube.

I didn't know the Wii version was rare. As for the DS version, I just walked right into Best Buy and got it for $20. Is the DS version as rare as the Wii version?
