You compete against others to eat as many strawberry-and-cream cake decorations as you can, racing down buttercream slopes and across sponge plains. You can use some environmental objects to your advantage, such as gummy eggs, which double as jump pads. As you eat more, your Kirby grows larger, which can impede your progress as you become more cumbersome. At the end of each race, each player is weighed, and the heaviest player (who has eaten the most) wins.
You can use Kirby's famous inhale ability, where he takes on abilities of enemies by inhaling them whole, and also the mouthful mode introduced in Kirby and the Forgotten Land to gain different sweet abilities. This means that even if you're losing, you can always make a comeback, raising the stakes and driving competition.
The result sounds strange on paper but, like Fall Guys, works well to create a competitive yet still lighthearted party game that's lots of fun and pushes you to use the abilities you have in ever more creative ways.
6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You need to use a controller and quickly press buttons and use joysticks and should be able to cope with losing to other players.
