Kirby Star Allies is one of the newest games for the Nintendo Switch console, and it is a game with a difference. It is what’s known as a co-op game, that is, a game that involves collaborative play between people who are all actually in the same room.
This hasn’t necessarily been popular over the past years. It’s not hard to see it from the point of view of the big games companies – single player games or games that encourage online play sell more copies because most people will have to buy them.
However, this no co-op game makes for a refreshing change and is a good way of socialising. People have to work together to win the game and achieve goals, such as collecting hearts and destroying the computer enemies. You can then combine powers and objects you have collected to get better results. It’s old-fashioned, and it’s fun.
