An evil witch turns Dream Land into a "picture" world, and when Kirby confronts her, she uses her magic to turn him into a ball. Luckily, he finds a magic paintbrush she left behind and uses it to turn the DS stylus into a magic item capable of drawing rainbow paths. Kirby then sets out to regain his shape and save Dream Land.
Players must draw paths and stun enemies to guide Kirby through an adventure spanning seven massive worlds.

It didn't get back into my DS for about a month, when I thought I'd give it one last chance before selling it. I was suddenly hooked. I saw the game in a new light and it has since become a joy to play. The control can be frustrating at times but the more you play the better you get and it is very satisfying when you manage to direct Kirby over a long line of electrifying blocks and past numerous enemies to gain a coin on your first attempt. As you get into the game the coins become more important as you realise you can swap them for better things than just Kirby songs. You can gain extra health, minigames (through which you can earn more coins) and characters. For each level in the main game you complete you can do time trials and line trials (where you have a limited amount of paint to manipulate Kirby). These can be more fun than the main game in my opinion and also provide opportunities for further coin collection.
One of the best games on the DS if you stick with it. As good as New Super Mario Bros in my opinon - I've certainly played Kirby more.
Why is this? Simply because not only does Kirby: Power Paintbrush actually use the full power of the DS, it utilises it very well. Only the stylus is used throughout the whole game, and the interaction between player and action is spot on. This is one of the objectives the DS told the gaming market about - that it opens up a whole new dimesion of gaming - and Kirby is the first game to wholly show this.
So what do you get for your money? Well you get not only a fantastic platforming/adventure game which has all the trademarks of the underrated Kirby franchise, but you get a game that lasts for a VERY long time - you have a main game to complete 5 times - you have all the medals to collect - you have three mini games which are quite difficult and you have two other methods of play - Time Trial and Ink Trial. Essentially throughout these modes you will use the stylus to guide Kirby along the levels which are broken into stages, very much like the other Kirby games. However, this game has many clever moments and could not simply be done on other consoles. On a final note, Kirby: Power Paintbrush has some of the best 2D graphics and effects that I have seen.
In short, Kirby has not only the best graphical style on the DS, but also innovates the platforming franchise. A must-have title.
