I know I've been meaning to ask this for quite some time; but what makes everyone go crazy over this Starfy character?!

Is this game worth it if you enjoy games like Super Princess Peach & Yoshi's Island for the DS; because those are 2 games I got for my DS that I absolutely love & are my all time favorites!
That is what I've been meaning to seriously ask! ;)

I mean I don't even know about this Starfy character or his origins & origonal game... so what maks him so cool enough for me to change my opinion about him?! It's not like I hate him; but I may never be interested in him if I'm not interested at all now?! :(

I only know he's a starfish, LOL! :P

Well Starfy dates way back i believe when Gameboy were popular Nintendo of Japan was going to make it for the orignial gameboy i recall then it was asked to be pushed to Gameboy Advance made 3 games on there i believe & 2 for DS (Including Starfy 5/ Legendary Starfy)
But otherwise Nintendo hasn't said hes a star or a starfish only thing they revealed is hes the prince of Pufftop. But otherwise he has lots of abilities 1 star spin spins into enemies the more you chain more pearls you collect which give you hearts if you lose all your hearts its game over. All in All if your just wanting to try it rent it first me I've loved starfy since the first Hope this helped out :)

He's not a starfish. He's just a star that loves to take a dip in the ocean. And it's the unique combination of puzzle solving and platforming that make the game so much fun. The boss fights are also a highlight of the game. Difficulty is a bit on the easy side for the first part of the game, but it generally picks up later on.

Is the combination of puzzle solving and platforming really still "unique"? What platformer isn't at least partially puzzle-based now?

Or are you saying there is something unique about these particular puzzles?

I haven't played the game, by the way. I'm just curious.

Well it's difficult to explain. You really won't understand the draw of the game until you've played one. So many people try to compare this game to the Kirby series when it's really very different by design and execution. It's just so well put together and the level designs are tricky, but extremely playable. I didn't understand it until I finally got the first GBA release and then it all became clear.

I see your points guys; yet I got one last question. Does this Starfy game have that enough charm & gameplay to say be on the same level as Super Princess Peach & Yoshi's Island?! Also what are some simularities or differences can someone describe from the games; enough to make me want to purchase it sometime?! ;)

Reason why I ask is because I can never let go of the fact that I still love my DS games Super Princess Peach & Yoshi's Island; for they will always will be the best 2D DS games I love & experiences I've had in a long time! :D

It's because it's an amazing game, we can finally read the amazing storyline.

@ 3. Corbie
Actually TOSE policy is to reply neither and say he is just the prince of Pufftop
