I can sorta understand people complaining about how Kirby's Epic Yarn is a fluffy game for casuals and babies as it is fairly easy to complete the main story. Exploring levels to find all hidden objects is more of a puzzle than a "challenge" due to the lack of death. Obtaining gold medals in all stages is a nice way to push yourself to play at a higher level, though optional.
However, collecting all of the game's fabrics has had me cussing a blue streak for a few days now. Some of the latter challenges unlocked in that damn apartment ask for zero margin of error, punishing you for even the slightest misstep. It's been a very nice way to breath new life into the game for me, though I'm not nearly that happy about it when I'm being rolled into a snow pile for the thousandth time while trying to unravel and smash dozens of little shitfucks on Buster's Evergreen lift challenge.
The reward for 100% completion is practically nonexistent, but getting there is proving to be a blast along the way and I'm way too close to stop now. Anybody else out there play this thing to completion and find the difficulty curve surprisingly steep at the end?
