By the end of the NES era we have seen it all for the NES although Famicom owners would always see more than us with such games as Gimmick! and Sweet Home. Nintendo brought one final platformer to the dying 8-bit console to remind us how wonderful the console was and has always been. Kirby’s Adventure debuted in May of 1993 which left the 8-bit console in a high stand point. The game is a joy to play in all departments. The music is memorable, the graphics are the best the NES can bring, and the gameplay is just fun. The game even came with a battery built in so that you would be able to save your games and continue on from where you left off. The game is really long as well as it contains lots of worlds something like Super Mario Bros 3 although this game lets you save it unlike the Mario game.
The gameplay delivers a very satisfying experience. You feel like you have total control of Kirby as you can fly anywhere and suck monsters to get their powers. The power up system is great as well as you can get certain powers that will help you defeat stronger enemies later on the level. The difficulty of the game is moderate so I suggest you have some patience especially in the later parts of the game. You’ll just have to find the right strategy for certain levels. Speaking of levels there aren’t only levels but bonus levels as well and a power up room too. The bonus levels are simple and very rewarding while the power up levels are well a power up level, nothing much can be said about that.
To conclude, the game is a joy to play and not pricey that you have to spend your entire savings on. The game is quite fun and should be part of anyone’s collection. It’s a must have!
