Kirby: Rainbow Curse is the newest title in the Kirby series. Unlike last year's Triple Deluxe, Rainbow Curse is not a traditional Kirby platformer. Instead, Rainbow Curse follows in the footprints of DS title Kirby: Canvas Curse. And let me tell you, its relationship to its portable forebear becomes obvious quite quickly.
In the hours I spent with Kirby: Rainbow Curse, I don't think I looked at my TV monitor once past the opening cutscene—and in my later play sessions, I didn't even bother to turn on my TV monitor. This is because Kirby: Rainbow Curse is played entirely on the gamepad's touch screen. In fact, every button except the pause button does literally nothing at all.
