Kirby's Epic Yarn
Kirby's Epic Yarn is a 2D side scrolling platformer released on October 14, 2010 in Japan, and in North America on October 17, 2010 for the Wii. Plans for the game as a Kirby game were revealed at E3 2010. In this game, Kirby, every enemy, and even the background are made of yarn. Kirby can pull the yarn from the scenery to find hidden gems or continue to go forward. Here, Kirby has a helper named Prince Fluff who he can fire at places normally inaccessible to get gems. Two players can play the game together at once.
A mysterious wizard named Yin-Yarn arrives in Dream Land and sprouts havoc among the citizens. The sorcerer uses his power to turn all of Dream Land into yarn. The puffball hero, Kirby, while foraging for food and inhaling Yin-Yarn's Metamato by mistake, is sucked into a world made entirely of yarn and textiles. This new world being Patch Land. In Patch Land Kirby discovers another yarn character named Prince Fluff is under attack by a foe. Kirby attempts to inhale him, but failed. Utilizing his newly acquired yarn powers, Kirby escapes danger with Prince Fluff in a car of yarn. Kirby and Price Fluff must restore the Patch Land world by finding the pieces of Magic Yarn in each of the seven worlds and defeat Yin-Yarn. 
Due to the fabric filled world of Patch Land, Kirby has lost his ability to inhale enemies, for air passes right through him. In addition, Kirby has lost the ability to puff-up and use that to float. However, he can use special yarn based transformations. Transformations are involved as Kirby can become a tank, car, submarine, parachute, UFO, and more. Kirby can transform into some forms at will, but some transformations will cost his ability to fight back, and some transformations, known as Super Transformations, can only be used at certain points on stages (usually the end of the stage). Kirby progresses through each world in a similar style to Kirby's Adventure or Kirby's Dream Land 2, where each world is separated through a large map, containing each level. Kirby is also able to interact with these hub worlds through patches he obtains after levels, which make in-game cutscenes effect the layout of the world. In the game, Kirby owns an apartment, which can be furnished with items hidden in each level. The said apartment is managed by Dom Woole, and more items can be purchased in shops ran by his brothers, with the use of beads found in each level.  Other residences live in the apartment complex as Kirby collects more items in-game. Prince Fluff is also able transform into everything Kirby can.
All non-boss stages will have three special items to be collected, two of them are furniture, and the third is always a CD for music. In addition, Kirby may also collect three plates that will enable the corresponding star amounts to be available at the end of the stage wheel. The end of game wheel will involve Kirby attaching to the wheel at the most advantageous moment, giving Kirby the possibility of a bonus of 200, 300, or 500 beads at the end of the stage. If the corresponding plates are obtaining, the 200 bead bonus will cover half of the wheel, the 300 bead bonus most of the other side of the wheel, and the 500 bead bonus will cover a small segment of it. If the plate was not obtained, the corresponding part of the wheel will be empty, and landing there will yield no bonus beads.
A multiplayer function for two players is also available, the second player will play Prince Fluff. Prince Fluff has identical abilities and capabilities as Kirby, except when using special yarn transformation, where Kirby controls one part of the transformation, and Prince Fluff will control another part of it. If either player falls too far behind, they can summon an angel to transport them to the other player, however, if both of them end up being carried by an angel, many beads are lost as if they have fallen into a pit.
As a departure from all games in the series, Kirby cannot get defeated or die, even when he has no beads, and fighting bosses. When Kirby gets hit, or falls down a pit, he loses a large abundance of beads, depending on how many he has. Throughout all the levels, Kirby and Prince Fluff can collect hundreds of beads, a currency in game that is used to purchase items from Dom Woole's shops, or used to collect medals in all levels in-game, in every level. The more beads they collect, the closer they get to obtaining a bronze, silver, and gold medal at the end of each stage. At boss battles, they can collect more beads to unlock a secret patch that can unlock two extra levels in each world.
Normal transformations are forms Kirby can shape shift into at will (With the exception of the Pendulum and Submarine, where Kirby must latch onto something or dive into water respectively).
These can be accessed by jumping into a Metamortex.

Kirby's Epic Yarn was called the best of E3 by many sites, including Kotaku, 1-Up, and Gamespot.
Post release, Kirby's Epic Yarn had seen high praise from critics, with an average 90% Score on Metacritic. . IGN.com said the "incredibly creative art direction is well worth the experience." Gamespot had called it an "an absolute joy". 
One of the more common complaints of the game was regarding the difficulty, in which Kirby cannot be defeated, unlike all other games in the franchise. However, it has been noted the challenge of the game spawns from collecting gold medals on all stages, and finding all secret treasures.
