Kururin Squash!, GameCube

I only discovered this marvellous game recently, on the back of posting screenshots of its predecessor on here. But I’m extremely glad I did, because Kururin Squash! is a fantastic update of the same game mechanics that made Kuru Kuru Kururin so compelling to play: guiding a spinning stick around a series of mad, twisting mazes.

And in this game the stick can even fight back with punches… Which is great!

There’s a story mode, time trials, and two different split-screen multiplayer modes for up to four players. Well, from what I can ascertain. I can’t read Japanese. And this game was only ever released in Japan.

Don’t let that put you off though: it’s easy enough to get into.

Kururin Squash! is cute, colourful, a great party game, and a great antidote to all those interminable first-person shooters. I’d definitely put it in my top fifty GameCube games of all time. Maybe top twenty.

Kururin Squash! was developed by Eighting and published by Nintendo in 2004.
