Ivy the Kiwi

 

Ivy is charming and understated; a platform game that deserves credit simply for doing something new with an old formula.

Innovative and simple ; Quaint visuals

Not enough variation in levels ; Gets repetitive after a while

Ivy the Kiwi’s simplicity is both a blessing and a curse. After chapter eight or nine, the solitary vine-drawing mechanic starts to get a tad stale, and experienced gamers might find themselves yearning for something with a bit more depth. It’s not...

Ivy The Kiwi? Review (DS)

 

Thanks to the touch screen of the iPhone and Nintendo DS, a new genre has graced us recently. The line drawing game, as it's been coined, is one so simple yet so addictive that the hours soon disappear. The most notable of which being Flight Control on...

Great visuals ; Excellent controls ; Simple and addictive ; Fun solo and multiplayer modes

Minor vine drawing issues

Ivy the Kiwi's story book approach looks great and and the simple controls work excellently. While at first you may struggle to get to grips with the way the game works, the level design (and tutorials) ease you in nicely. By the third chapter you'll...

Ivy the Kiwi? Review

 

Ivy the Kiwi comes from the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog. But some 20 years later, how does this new platformer turn out on the Nintendo DS?

Innovative ; Nice art style ; Good for quick blasts

Little story ; Feathers are hard to get ; Little replay value

"Ivy the Kiwi?" is an interesting little game. It's something new, and has a pretty good art style to boot. It's also a great game for travelling with. However, the lack of a story, the crazy difficulty in getting the feathers, and lack of much replay...

Ivy the Kiwi? Review

 

The Japanese love things that are cute. That is a proven fact. From charms to bentos to anime and even video games, the Japanese are infatuated with cute objects and things. And what's cuter than a baby kiwi looking for her mother?

In addition to the main story mode, Ivy the Kiwi also has a co-op mode where two players can help her find her way. Leaderboards and competitive multiplayer are also present to give the game a bit of replay value. We don’t know the reason why the...

Ivy the Kiwi?

 

Appealing simplicity builds to an engaging challenge in this charming, accessible platformer.

Clever vine-stretching mechanic ; Difficulty curve accommodates a wide range of players ; Charming presentation

Simplicity doesn't always work in its favor

A unique and charming adventure. Platform games are quickly becoming a dime a dozen. That is why when the name Yuji Naka is attached to a project that doesn't have...

Fantastic visuals ; Unique concept ; Excellent learning curve

You will die...a lot ; Game is relatively short

Platform games are quickly becoming a dime a dozen. That is why when the name Yuji Naka is attached to a project that doesn’t have the name Sonic attached; we tend to pay attention. His latest creation comes in the form of a budget-priced platformer...

Ivy The Kiwi? Review

 

Being a baby chick has never been so hard

Adorable visuals and soundtrack, great vine-creation mechanic, lots of challenging platform levels

Gets very difficult later on, story is so thin as to be useless

Ivy The Kiwi? is deceptive. While it looks lighthearted it's really a serious and challenging platform game, but in spite of its difficulty, the simple controls and game mechanics make it very approachable, and while you'll almost certainly die a lot...

Gamertell Review: Ivy the Kiwi for Wii

 

Ivy the Kiwi just wants to find her mother. The poor thing is partially hatched (only its head and feet have emerged from its egg), it's all alone in the forest, and it's up to you to guide her home. Sounds like another contrived Don Bluth cartoon, I...

Cute, attractive “picture book” graphics, unique gameplay, great multiplayer, many levels to beat

Repetitive, a bit frustrating to control, surprisingly difficult in later stages

Ivy the Kiwi?

 

It is rare to see new IP. It is even rarer for that new IP to be a two-dimensional platformer. That is what we have though. Ivy the Kiwi? is the newest game created by Yuji Naka, the man responsible for Sonic the Hedgehog. Ivy the Kiwi? is not just a...

Good progression of techniques, Gradual difficulty curve

Throwing is tricky due to lack of direct interaction with the environment
