Game Profile

Kirby to the Rescue!

Dream Land is in peril! An evil king has stolen the magic Twinkle Stars. If they're not recovered, the people of Dream Land could starve.

Meet Kirby, a roly-poly little hero, as he runs, jumps, floats and swims in search of the treasured Twinkle Stars. He'll puff his way through castles, caves, dungeons and forests. In his path are many wicked and greedy enemies but Kirby has a special way to defeat them! It's non-stop action all the way to the top of Mt. Dedede!

Because he's also white in the game?...
This is the first appearance of Kirby and as it's a GB game they had the choice of making him white or black, so consider us lucky he didn't turn out to be black.

It's ashame that Kirby can't steal enemies' powers in this game. He controls just like Kirby NES, he can float, inhale foes, and spit out stars, but when I hit down to absorb an enemy, he just swallows them whole without absorbing any special abilities. Yes, there are a number of powerups in the game, but what I loved most about NES Kirby is stealing abilities. It's just not present in the Game Boy version. Still a great game though! ;)

Regardless of lacking Kirby's awesome trademark ability to steal enemy's powers, this is a pretty good game.
While Kirby games have a reputation for being "easy," this one actually feels a li'l more challenging to me, I remember having alot of trouble with the final boss, and for those who want an even greater challenge when you beat the game you'll be given a "cheat" code to unlock the "hard" mode. Hard mode is actually quite fun to, and worth a shot for Kirby vetrans.

You found it challenging @Beau_Skunk? I remember buying this the week it came out in '92. I completed the game in under 40 minutes, on a car ride with my mother. lol (<:
