That holds true for The Legendary Starfy, the fifth game in the long running series developed by Tose which sees its first release in North America. This quirky platformer will certainly be enjoyed by kids under the age of twelve but will anyone else find it enjoyable?"
+ Classic 2D Platformer
+ Wonderful Graphics with great use of color
+ Great game for gamers under the age of twelve
+ Lots of unlockables and secrets to discover
+ Co-Op and Mini-games to play with friends (DS Download Play available)
- Way too easy for anyone over the age of twelve
- Music and Sound effects are not bad, but certainly borders the threshold of safe to play out loud
