Also known as: Touch! Kirby (JP),
Other regional differences
Kirby: Canvas Curse is an innovative touch-based Kirby game where he becomes a rolling helpless ball you have to guide, taking inspiration from Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.
Three test maps for the Block Breaking boss minigame engine are present under the folder bank08bin and can be accessed via Action Replay code 220F29B0 00000003 (EU only) or by swapping files. They have an odd time limit of 60 minutes.
The first two maps are especially wide compared to most normal maps from this mode, with various enemies and special blocks in very high quantities hinting at the testing purpose of the map. The third map is a duplicate of a used map.
There are minor aesthetic differences, such as the title screen graphics.
- Several text, such as the level names, had just the first letter of the words capitalized in the Japanese version. The international versions changed these text to having the words in all caps.
- Distances are measured in centimeters in the Japanese and European versions and inches in the US version.
- The color of the stylus was changed from pink in the Japanese version to grey in the international versions.
Due to the game being called Kirby: Power Paintbrush in Europe, a text was changed in the game's opening.
|Looking down in shame, he sees the witch's Magical Paintbrush...||Looking down in shame, he sees the witch's Power Paintbrush...|
- The translation is fairly straightforward, but the names for almost every area were changed or rearranged in some way (an oddity, given that the names were listed in English in the first place and did not exhibit glaring errors):
|Stage 1: Plain Plant||Stage 1: Plant Plain|
|Level 2: Aronge Valley||Level 2: Arange Gorge|
|Stage 1: Ghost Ground||Stage 1: Ghost Grounds|
|Stage 2: Growth Grass||Stage 2: Growth Grasses|
|Level 3: Ieras Adventure||Level 3: Iello Adventure|
|Level 4: Neo Geneo||Level 4: Neo Greo|
|Level 5: Blue Hills||Level 5: Bloo Hills|
