Kirby: Canvas Curse is a video game for the Nintendo DS created by HAL Laboratory and Nintendo in 2005. In it, Kirby is turned into a ball by a witch named Drawcia while she is turning Dream Land into a painting, and must travel through 8 levels in order to defeat the witch and turn both Dream Land and him back to normal. In this game, Kirby has a dash attack, which can be used by simply touching him. This attack can also help him get other powers from enemies that can give him them. Due to also losing the ability to float and jump, Kirby can also travel on a line drawn by the player to wherever it leads. the player can play as Kirby, Waddle Dee, Waddle Doo, King Dedede, or Meta Knight, with each character having different skills and health power.

Extras

Rainbow Run

Rainbow Run is a mode in which Kirby tries to set a record for the time in going through a course or for the amount of line he uses to complete it. It uses levels 1 through seven and replaces level 8 with other courses where Kirby can only use a selected ability.

In the subgame Cart Run, Kirby must race to defeat King Dedede.

Subgames

This game also has three subgames. The subgames are only unlocked after beating the second level of each in the Boss Fights of the Main Game.[1] The subgames are similar to the actual boss fights. Game Overs will occur if Kirby either runs out of time or health[2] In each game, there are three levels, with level 1 being the easiest and level 3 being the hardest. New Medals are only unlocked after achieving an A rank in Level 3.

  • In Cart Run, Kirby is racing King Dedede in a mine car vehicle.
  • In Paint Panic, he is trying to avoid a couple of bombers while connecting the dots drawn by Paint Roller in the same order he drew them in.
  • In Block Attack, Kirby is trying to destroy blocks and beat all the enemies in a certain section and go to a higher section.

Medal Swap

This game also has a medal swap section, where Kirby can exchange the medals he earned in the game for lines, new levels in Rainbow Run, new songs, and even new players.
