Review Kirby's Dream Land (3DS eShop / GB)
Is Kirby's debut adventure worth getting sucked into?
Kirby's debut adventure has been around the block a couple of times now, having been remade and mechanically enhanced for both Kirby Super Star on SNES as well as the DS version of that release called Kirby Super Star Ultra. Stripped down and monochromatic in comparison, this original Game Boy...
About The Game
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!
Let me be the FIRST to say that this game rocks!!
Why the heck is Kirby WHITE on the box art?!?
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.
I remember being like 5 years old and feeling SO accomplished that I beat King Dedede. Good times.
this makes me wanting they would put gb and gbc games on the VC
if that ever happens, i'll buy this one no doubt
One of the easiest games ever. Still fun, though.
Coming out this thursday for EU? Wahoo!
Yeah, it is fun. Everyone will complete it many times over and still enjoy playing it.
This thursday!! Yes!! The first Kirby.
@Kurachi Do you have psychic powers? o.O
Woo! Can't wait, never played it before. Why did they add a extra 60 cents though?
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!
i have posted this before somewhere else but is this game almost the same as spring breeze from kirby superstar because it seems to be
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 (<:
who got this on club nintendo?
@dark-insanity i may get it now from club nintendo
