Eurogamer writes: "When I was recently thinking about the current state of the DS, one game I kept returning to was Kirby: Canvas Curse. Or Kirby: Power Paintbrush. Or Touch! Kirby. Or whichever of its many names it may be going by. Released a few months after the DS, it was a game that came with no expectations, and was absolutely stunning.
But what about now, five years later? Was the magic of this platformer part of the DS's freshness, and the thrill of a game using the hardware well? Or is it a classic?"
