Say it with me: Awwwwww!

Fans of the franchise might bemoan the loss of Kirby’s trademark ability, but the imaginative design of Kirby’s Epic Yarn makes
this one flat-out adorable Wii platformer. Players unravel their foes, stretch and pull the landscape, and collect hidden treasures throughout a huge patchwork map.

While the game’s story is clearly designed for kids, some of the levels may prove a little challenging. For this you have co-op mode,
allowing mom or dad to jump in anytime.

Part LittleBigPlanet, part Scribblenauts, all Nintendo, Kirby’s Epic Yarn is great for young gamers and skeptical older fans alike.
