2 mins read

Ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. If you’re in the north then you get to enjoy snow, hot drinks, the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree. If you’re south of the equator, it means blistering hot weather, beer, and the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree.

Christmas is a time for good food, family, and friends. It’s a time for celebration, and Christmas is the time of year where it’s okay to be a kid all over again, and count down the days to gifts and celebrations one day at a time. Each year we get into the spirit of the season ourselves with a countdown of our own; the 24 Games of Christmas!

So please do join in the countdown with us, crack open some great games, and enjoy the season!

Game #13: Kirby: Planet Robobot
(Read our review of the game here)

The Kirby series is one I mentally associate with Christmas due to receiving one of the pink puffball’s finer outings, Kirby Super Star, as a gift. Just about every entry makes a terrific holiday title, though, thanks to the franchise’s requisite minimalist level designs. These games focus more on eliciting smiles at every turn than reminding you of Ninja Gaiden or Super Meat Boy. If any game is going to inspire seasonal cheer, surely it’s a charming little mascot game that allows you to toy with its many special abilities on offer.

This year, Kirby will having you singing Mech the Halls. Planet Robobot features the same classic platforming gameplay you’re familiar with but also introduces various curveballs. Some of these are mere formula tweaks, but others such as giant robots and a surprising plot (yes, really) might just pique your interest.
