About The Game

Released in the later years of the NES, Kirby’s Adventure was a groundbreaking, graphically impressive platformer that famously introduced Kirby’s ability to copy the powers of his enemies.

In his default form, Kirby is a near-powerless pink blob, but by sucking up enemies he can absorb their abilities; including a laser beam, fire blaster, boomerang and spikes. By gulping down two different kinds of enemy Kirby can also combine powers, sometimes with unexpected results.

With tons of bonus levels and minigames, plus more than 20 copy abilities to discover, Kirby’s Adventure is as full of surprises as Kirby himself!
