As the inaugural Kirby title, Kirby's Dream Land created many conventions that would appear in later games in the series, including Kirby's basic moves. However, Kirby's trademark "copy" ability would not appear until Kirby's Adventure, released less than one year later. Kirby's Dream Land was re-released for the 3DS's Virtual Console service in 2011. It is also one of the games included in the compilation game Kirby's Dream Collection, which was released to celebrate Kirby's 20th anniversary.
The Completionist Edit
Jirard finds the plot ridiculous, but fun, and finds Kirby's physique to be weird for a video game protagonist who isn't exactly relatable. Though he finds the graphics to be good by Game Boy standards. Despite finding the level design to be creative and imaginative, he's disappointed by the game's short length.
Jirard finds the eating mechanic and floating mechanic to be solid, and as adding to the gameplay. Though he likes the bosses, he's disappointed that the last level is a recap of the first four levels. Their short length makes them less of an outrage for Jirard, though.
Jirard does like the idea of having a hard mode unlocked after completing the game once, but wishes it wasn't available from just knowing the code.
- In the review, Kirby is given the nickname of "The Mallow of the Marsh Variety."
