Well explained. Kirby's Adventure remains among my favourite games after more than fifteen years, despite being one of the easiest I've ever played, and you really pinpoint why. It's just fun. It's not about the satisfaction of overcoming adversity, it's about just enjoying the ride.

To this day, I don't know how it manages to be so cute without being twee, and so cheery without starting to grate.

'There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.'

Yeah, that's the thing about the game.

When I bought it, it was mainly because I didn't have a SNES at the time and the way the hills were drawn in the background of the first world or two reminded me of the hills from Super Mario World, so I figured they'd be similar games. When I found out how much easier Kirby's Adventure was than ANY SMB game, I was a bit disappointed at first, but then found myself repeatedly playing it just because of the charm. In a way, the easiness might have helped, as it became THE attractive platformer that didn't have frustrating parts, so I could run through it anytime I felt like playing something, but didn't feel like an intense game.

I'm not afraid to die because I am invincible
Viva la muerte, that's my goddamn principle
