Very charming game, though very short

That figures to about a hundred bucks per hour for a single play-through, which seems like a complete rip-off compared to Breath of the WIld's five bucks an hour -- a complete steal. Still, I don't mind paying an 'exorbitant' price for this game, as some indie games tend to have the same low mileage for a high price. It's charming enough that I never considered that it was overly priced, but I do think, in retrospect, that a lower price would have been very welcomed.
The final boss on this, while easy, is very ultra awesome. I got Majora's Mask and Bayonetta vibes from it, and thought it was quite fantastic. That's as far as I'll go with spoilers.
Overall, this game isn't a must buy, but it is something you will not regret if you are a platformer fan. It's a very mellow game, and is well suited for video-game beginners, and for stress relief after paying some competitive matches of Splatoon 2 or ARMS, and later this year, Super Smash Brothers. It's nice to just sit back and admire the visuals while not having a care in the world.
Again, I really love Kirby.
