Hands, More Like Stylus, On Ivy The Kiwi?

By Spencer . April 14, 2010 . 7:51pm

If this were any other platformer you would move the Kiwi with the D-pad and, perhaps, jump with A. But, you can’t directly move the Kiwi in Ivy the Kiwi?.

By Spencer . April 2, 2010 . 10:39am

I thought Ivy the Kiwi? would be like Kirby’s Canvas Curse, but Prope’s game, when skillfully played, is lightning fast.

Despite weak sales in Japan, Sega took a chance and released Prope’s “future tapping game” in North America. It didn’t get much attention here either, but Sega isn’t giving up on their series of Let’s games.
