Kirby's Dream Course (SNES / Super Nintendo)

Game Profile

Kirby’s Dream Course puts a new spin on the sport of golf, with Kirby as the ball and his enemies as obstacles! There are eight different courses to conquer, each containing eight levels packed with obstacles like water, spikes, conveyor belts and trampolines.

In each level, take out all the enemies by rolling Kirby into them, and then head for the hole that appears. You can adjust the angle of Kirby’s movement, add spin and power, and also copy the powers of enemies; such as using a parasol to float, ice to freeze water or fire to burn bad guys to a crisp!

As well as the challenging single-player mode, Kirby’s Dream Course also features a two-player mode in which you can compete against a friend.

Augusta this 'ain't

Kirby, being a lovable if slightly non-descript pink ball, can lend his hands — or flappy arms, whatever — to lots of things. Being shaped like a ball and all, he's indulged in pinball, for example, and when participating in his named spin-offs...

A new spin on crazy golf

Kirby, much like our friend Mario, has never been afraid to offer his own take on different genres — and in Kirby's Dream Course, the puff ball takes on the world-renowned sport of mini golf. Unlike other pitch and putt games, such as EA’s Zany Golf...

Terrific golf game with a very nice Kirby touch. It's a bit of a forgotten game, but that doesn't mean it's bad at all. Loads of holes, great multiplayer, terrific music, etc. all help this game loads.



Bass_X0 said:

This was a surprise. Its a good game, I have fond memories of this one. Its not a strict golf game but its more fun because of that.



Jazzem said:

This came out two days after me buying it on the SNES pre-owned! Gah, if I had known, I would have waited =(

Still, it's a great game, easily reccomended



Shrapnel09 said:

cant wait for a video of it, i have never played this game before... however i have been buying a lot lately and need to slow down, i will have to wait till future and then decide



eltomo said:

I love this game, I will download asap!

But when I saw the Kirby picture on home page, I though the Star Pack was released, but this is still good =)



Mendez said:

It's a great game, but I'm not downloading as I've just got my SNES plugged in again after last weeks dissapointment. If Nintendo had released it last week I would have gladly got it.



JustAGuy said:

Great game! I loved it as a child and can't wait for it to make it's way to the states. The satisfaction of pulling off a hole-in-one is great and seeing all the crazy things you have to do to pull it off is like finally getting the board for mouse trap set up!

Downloaded this this morning and am loving it! It's basically a hybrid of a golf game, a puzzle game and Super Monkey Ball. I had a SNES back in the day and can't even remember this game coming out, so the VC has served up a real treat!

Like all the best puzzlers - and like SMB - it's frustrating, but not unfair. Every time you run out of lives just before the end of a course, it simply steels your resolve to kick its ass next time round - the sign of a very good game indeed. Although I'm not sure I'll play it when I give up smoking on Monday. I'm likely to have a broken window and a Wii shaped lawn ornament otherwise.

Some of the prettiest graphics I've seen on the SNES and some excellent music round off one of the most playable games I've ever come across. Having played it for about five hours straight, I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who's debating where to deposit those 800 points.



Lee said:

Unbelievable skill in that YouTube video. I love this game, as soon as I pick up some Wii points this is coming down



Jack said:

I might buy this game. I played it at a hotel in Florida once and absolutely loved it.



Dazza said:

Yup, we're gonna add a video for every new game if we can find one!



TBoneTony said:

I love this game

I first saw it on my freinds emulator a few years back and it was the first time I had seen a Kirby game, besides from Smash Bros and before I downloaded Kirby's Adventure for the VC.

As soon as I saw this in the VC Shopping channel, I downloaded it immedialy and I am still enjoying it now after 3 days of downloading it.

Kirby Golf is possibly the greatest turn-based multiplayer games of the SNES generation. It's wonderfully inventive and balanced in a way that both gamers and "non-gamers" can enjoy. It's also ADDICTIVE as all-get-out.

I've been hoping that the VC store would release it ever since I had a Wii.



Fahed said:

This Game is very addicting, amazing replay value and has been delayed to long to show up on the VC! Just trust me when I say get this game, the 4 star rating is unfair.



Eric42 said:

I don't really care for these types of games, but it does look interesting and all of the boosts here make it sound good... Should I really consider buying this? Of course, I'm still playing Paper Mario right now...



Chocobo said:

I just downloaded this game I love the Kirby + Putt-putt Golf combo. A real gem in the SNES crown if you ask me. Kirby's Dream Course get!!



Ho11oWxxMaN said:

Kirby's Dream Course is a pleasant surprise. Its one of those games you have to really try to see how much fun it is. To be honest, it was tough deciding to blow 800 points on this game, because the videos and vid-reviews of the game said it was great, but it seemed so boring. I have always been a Kirby fan, but did not want to let the inner-fanboy get this game just because of that lovable puffball.

Overall, the game is a blast to play, because it is challenging but not frustrating. It is pretty original as well, so when you get tired of playing a few platformers or action-adventure games, its nice to just sit down with a friend and play this skewed version of mini-golf.



Garlyle said:

I own a copy of this game on the SNES, but I still bought it (mostly because my SNES copy tends to get its memory erased). It is absolutely incredible. It's a truly unique game, and deceptively challenging - perfecting the game and getting the Gold Medals on every course in single player is an incredibly difficult feat, but it still manages to be incredibly fun in the meantime. The multiplayer on it is also awesome, should you find someone willing to play as well.



Marvel_Maniac said:

Just bought it due to your reviews. Thanks a ton guys! This is by far one of the more enjoyable games I have ever played for the SNES, and that's saying a lot! I would recommend this game to anyone!



Ricardo91 said:

I might get this game sometime, since any Kirby spinoff that involves Kirby rolling around like a ball is always good (Kirby Tilt n' Tumble, Kirby's Pinball Land, Kirby Canvas Curse, ect.) looks pretty fun.



carson said:

My friend had this game and we would play it for hours. Its a pretty clever game and can be fun for a little while. Im still waiting for KIRBY SUPER STAR, the absolutely greatest kirby game ever!



My friend bought this on VC when it came out. I don't care for it as much as I used to, and I don't play it much. :/



MrDanger88 said:

Me and my brother played this game like gangbusters way back in our childhood. Don't d/l for single player.



Corbs said:

One of my favorite SNES games, still to this day. Great variety and unique game play elements. It's one of those games that's almost impossible to put down once you start playing it.
