Welcome to Kirby Wiki!The wiki about the Kirby games and Kirby: Right Back at Ya! that anyone can edit.
Freeze is a copy ability that only makes defensive use of the ice element, which is also used in Ice. When Freeze is activated, Kirby surrounds himself in a blizzard and freezes every enemy including bosses on-screen, and Kirby can only get hurt by already-existing projectiles. Ice only freezes individual enemies. It is known as Ice Sprinkler in Top Ride mode of Kirby Air Ride, and can be used to freeze opponent racers in place.
According to ex-DMA developer Mike Dailly, the gameplay of the unreleased Kid Kirby would have used the Super NES Mouse to click and drag to stretch Kirby out, then launch him to progress in the level, in a manner similar to Angry Birds. The game was cancelled by Nintendo due to years of unproductive development - the poor sales of the Super NES Mouse outside of Intelligent Systems' Mario Paint also may have had an impact on its cancellation.
