The Legendary Starfy

Nintendo DS - Rating: 8/10

I’m surprised that I enjoyed this kid-friendly platformer as much as I did. It leans in heavy into its cuteness factor but manages to tell a story that isn’t insulting with some genuine moments of wit. It’s not really a pure platformer either. About half the levels have you swimming in all directions rather than jumping. It’s a mechanic that seems overly simple at first but eventually builds up to a moderate level of challenge. Throw in a bit of exploration/secret hunting and you have a pretty decent little game here.
