Kirby Air Ride is an entertaining game that was developed by HAL Laboratory in 2003. The game achieved great success after its release and received positive reviews from players. With diverse play modes and simple gameplay, the game will give players a relaxing time when accompanying the main character to complete the challenges.
Basically, players can participate in exciting races by controlling Kirby. They watch a short video to understand how to control the car’s functions. After the video ends, the player will select one of three modes to start the race. The game recommends that they pass through the modes one after another to conquer new challenges. Players can perform the track on each lap or the specified time in the first mode. The race will start when three riders are ready.
The goal is to reach the finish in the shortest time to win. They will collect bonuses and energy pots on the track. Having many energy tanks will help speed the racing faster and surpass the opponent. However, players have to observe and reflect quickly to avoid obstacles on the track. If you collide with it, their race car will lose control and cause insecurity on the track. With their skills, the player quickly overcomes the remaining 2 riders and win. You will continue to the next level after completing the race at the previous level.
The difficulty is higher, it requires the player’s control skills. After the player has conquered 90 levels of the first mode, they will put Kirby on new tracks in the remaining two modes. They choose the track’s weather, time, and riders. In addition, players and their teammates will control racing cars to compete in the multiplayer mode.
The Kirby Air Ride’s success comes not only with the content but also with the graphics and music in the race. 3D images combined with the match’s speed creat attracted that makes players unable to take their eyes off the screen. They feel the competition through realistic sound. All these factors create a unique entertainment game that players can not ignore.
