Kirby's Dream Land (Game Boy) review


"One of the few Kirby games ever made in which you do not inherit the powers you consume. Of course you must remember this was one of the first games the pink-fluff-ball ever explored through. He still can puff up and float, and the enemy of King Dedede and Kracko are both in the game, so how bad could it be.... "



One of the few Kirby games ever made in which you do not inherit the powers you consume. Of course you must remember this was one of the first games the pink-fluff-ball ever explored through. He still can puff up and float, and the enemy of King Dedede and Kracko are both in the game, so how bad could it be....

STORY (3/5): It's a classic game, so stories were not important then. This was before most RPG's spoiled us, and made us have that need for an intriguing storyline. However King Dedede has taken all the food from Dreamland, and your job as Kirby is to get it back.

GRAPHICS (16/20): These are not too bad for an early gameboy game. The enemies all look different, and Kirby has a good degree of animation. The bosses look really good too. However there has also been better, but for a sidescroller old Gameboy game, this may be the best.

SOUND (7/10): You must always remember this is the gameboy sound-chip. However each world has a different piece of music and it is not too annoying...

GAMEPLAY (33/50): Your job is to eat and spit out your enemies through various levels until you reach a master. After fighting a similiar master all Kirby fans know with that strategy you will move on to the next level. It is a short game, and it isn't that fun however it is pretty inovative. Using Kirby to eat your way through 5 pretty long levels is fun at first and is definitely a different approach to sidescrollers.

REPLAYABILITY (3/10): Horrible replay department. It takes about 20 minutes to beat the game, without much challenge at all. After beating it a few times, you will give up sadly enough, for it's low in replay department.

DIFFICULTY (2/5): This game is made for 5 year olds it is so easy. First try at the game, I beat it with no continues. That is pretty sad, cause I wasn't really even trying. I cannot figure out why this game is ''E'' when it should be ''Early Childhood''

VINTAGE VALUE (+3): I am not too sure if this is the first Kirby or not, but I believe it is. If not, it still shook enough ground to make many more Kirby games from this. Kirby is one great fluffball anyway.

OVERALL (67/100): This is a game I only reccomend to people searching for the classics. It is fun for about the 20 minutes, then you beat it and it is over. Is this the first Kirby or the 2nd, I may never know, but for a classic it is still fun, and some people may want to take a look, cause it is DEFINITELY a cheap game.

Rating: 6.7/10

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
