It is a shame that this game was released far into the NES’ life. With the SNES already out, many people ignored the NES twilight releases, and as such they didn’t sell as well as they should. Thankfully, Kirby’s Adventure is readily available on the Wii VC for only 500 points. Kirby’s second game shouldn’t be ignored.

This NES version of Kirby's Adventure has never been re-released before. But the 2002 Game Boy Advance game Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland did use this title's level design as a basis, basically remaking the NES Adventure with updated, GBA-level graphics and sound. You can't beat the original, though. Even if you own and have played through Nightmare in Dreamland, the Virtual Console Kirby's Adventure still comes highly recommended. It's Kirby in his purest, most fun form. Don't miss it.

Kirby’s Adventure est le premier épisode à poser les bases de la série de manière aussi forte. Le concept est resté le même dans la plupart des jeux suivants, et on comprend pourquoi. Une jouabilité exemplaire, un héros au charisme improbable, on ne peut faire qu’une seule chose face à ce petit phénomène, jouer et rejouer encore. En 1992, Nintendo maîtrise le jeu de plates-formes et le démontre une nouvelle fois avec Kirby. Le jeu synthétise tous les bons côtés de la marque, en restant original et ingénieux. Il en oublie cependant un de taille : la difficulté, grande absente du titre.

Kirby Adventure Wii is geen derde geniale Kirby voltreffer op rij, maar biedt de klassieke Kirby gameplay voorzien van een vergevingsgezinde moeilijkheidsgraad. Een aanrader voor nieuwkomers en fans.

Kirby’s Adventure has aged really well; it is still as playable as the day it was released. For just 500 Wii points you could do a lot worse than to check this out for yourself, unless you have the patience to wait for Kirby Super Star on the SNES to hit the Virtual Console which is generally considered to be the best of the series.

HALs goldiges NES-Spätwerk ist ein klassischer Plattformer mit einer handvoll interessanter Twists. So kann der rosa Blob in seinem ersten und einzigen NES-Auftritt seine Gegner schlucken, um deren Fähigkeiten anzunehmen oder die schwere Kost als Projektil in Richtung anderer knuffiger Widersacher auszuspucken. Dank, für NES-Verhältnisse, ganz ausgezeichneter Grafik, Flugeinlagen und vieler Aha-Effekte erhalten Neulinge für 500 Wii-Punkte deutlich mehr als erwartet. Mit Sicherheit das modernste Spieldesign, dass die NES-Sektion zu bieten hat.

With seven worlds, plus sundry bosses and bonus sections, it's not the biggest game in the world, but there does come a point where the experience flatlines and you suspect you've seen all the game has to offer. Despite this, Kirby's first and only NES outing is undeniably charming and, with its parallax scrolling and colourful characters, really showcases just how much juice developer's were squeezing from the tiny system towards the end of its life. If cute and quirky platforming tickles your biscuits, this is a fine way to spend 500 points.
