Super Kiwi 64 from Diplodocus Games and Siactro is a retro-styled 3D collect-a-thon with a low-poly presentation. The two previously gave us Macbat 64: Journey of a Nice Chap, a game that paid homage to the 3D platformers of the Nintendo 64 era, and that’s also the case for Super Wiki 64. It wouldn’t have felt out of place back in the late 1990s since it’s clearly been inspired by games such as Banjo-Kazooie or Donkey Kong 64.
The game opens in the main hub world, from which you can bounce to one of the eight bite-sized levels that Super Kiwi 64 has to offer. In classic 3D collect-a-thon fashion, you’ll have to find many golden items. In the case of Super Kiwi 64, they include golden cogs, as well as going through golden rings. Oh, and there are also glowing gems to find! These are known as powerstones, and they are what you need to be able to fly away from the island. You can check how many golden cogs and powerstones you can collect in each level by checking the upper left corner of the screen.
You’ll control the titular bird with the left analog stick as you move the camera as needed with the right analog stick. Press and hold down the ZR button, and the kiwi bird will run. It can jump with the B button, and it will also be able to glide for a bit by pressing the B button again when up in the air. It can also use its beak to attack by pressing the Y button. This can make it possible for the kiwi bird to execute another jump after it’s stuck its beak on a wall. This can be repeated over and over again. The ZL button can be used to reset the camera.
As was the case for Macbat 64: Journey of a Nice Chap, Super Kiwi 64 is a fun retro-styled 3D collect-a-thon with a low-poly presentation. It’s a game that should take you around an hour to complete at most, but after that, there are some additional secrets for you to find that will stretch your time with the game by some extra minutes. Can you find all codes? Super Wiki 64 is out on Nintendo Switch with a budget price of only $2.99 asking price.
