Trivia

Final Level

The final level of Kirby's Adventure, leading to the last boss, is directly based on Kirby's Dream Land for Game Boy. The level is entirely black and white, the four areas are based on the Game Boy game's four levels, and the music is exactly the same as Kirby's Dream Land level 1 theme.

Size

The game was the second largest game (in megabits) to appear on the NES, weighing in at a hefty 6 megabits (768KB). HAL Laboratory's Metal Slader Glory takes the cake as the largest game on the NES, with 8 megabits (one full megabyte) of data.

Awards

The game received the following awards:
  • NES Game of the Year in the 1993 GamePro Editors' Choice Awards (Vol. 6, Issue 2)
  • #150 out of 200 of the "Greatest Games of Their Time" by EGM Issue #200 (Feb. 2006)
