Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash (Nintendo) is a video game for the 3DS. It is a side-scrolling game about a robot who uses his plug and cord to whip enemies, grapple onto ledges, and swing across gaps. You can also power-up the plug and cord to search for collectibles and explore previously out-of-reach areas. I would recommend this game to players 9 years old and older. It is a little bit challenging when you try to aim the cord to kill enemies, though. The levels have a huge variety of difficulty; from controlling a balloon to grappling from ceiling to ceiling. To get to the next level, you must finish the one before it and do a spinner game, which determines the next level you play. In order to use the amiibo, you must have a 3DS that includes amiibo support.
