Looking back: Kirby's Adventure

Kirby’s Dreamland represented just about the perfect Game Boy game: simple but solid gameplay, large, easy-to-see characters on the low-resolution portable screen, and a brief playtime ideal for replay whenever one had the time. So it made a lot of sense for Nintendo to continue the little puffball’s story. It wasn’t uncommon for hit NES games to make the leap to Game Boy via downscaled sequels or even direct-as-possible ports. Less common, however, was original Game Boy content showing up on more advanced consoles, which made it somewhat of a surprise when Nintendo released 8-bit Kirby’s Adventure nearly two years into the Super Nintendo’s lifespan. More than a simple enhanced port, a smorgasborg of new gameplay features allowed Kirby’s second outing to soar with 16-bit giants.

Re: Looking back: Kirby's Adventure

This game set the tone for the entire series, without the ability to copy the abilities of enemies, Kirby would have just been another character stuck in dull sequels that hardly varied from the original. But the ability to copy enemy abilities meant that new abilities could be made, and stages could be designed to utilize all of these abilities in his ever expanding arsenal.

Re: Looking back: Kirby's Adventure

This article just makes me sad that I lost my NES copy of Kirby's Adventure a couple years ago. No idea how either.

And then THAT just reminds me of how I lost my copy of World Class Track Meet and my Power Pad when I moved in third grade.

Thanks for the memories, jerk!

Re: Looking back: Kirby's Adventure

Kirby's Adventure was and still is a gem. I need to ebay the complete game (box, book, sleeve, cart) when I get a chance.
