Kirby's Adventure is a Nintendo Entertainment System game released in 1993 and the second installment of the Kirby series. It is notable for establishing Kirby's ability to copy his enemies' powers, which went on to become a staple of most later Kirby games. In 2002, the game was remade for the Game Boy Advance as Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.


Kirby's Back in Power-Puffing Action!

What would Dream Land be without dreams? A Nightmare! The Dream Spring, source of all dreams, has dried up, taking with it all the blissful dreams of Dream Land. It's up to Kirby, the bombastic blimp, to return happy naps to the inhabitants of Dream Land!

Kirby's appetite for adventure is big as ever as he eats his way through a feast of all new enemies! In this adventure, he can also steal the abilities of the bad guys he scarfs down! With this new power, Kirby can perform 20 new tricks that will help him make his way through the nightmare infested Dream Land!

Kirby's Adventure features brand new worlds to explore with the same fun, action packed feel that made Kirby's Dream Land™ for Game Boy® a hit!"


Kirby, after realising he hasn't dreamt all night, heads to the Fountain of Dreams to find King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod and broken it into 7 pieces, which Kirby must collect to restore peace to Dream Land.


Just like in the previous game, Kirby's Dream Land. The game is a 2D Platformer where you control Kirby with the ability to float and eat enemies. For the first time Kirby can use copy abilities, of which there are 24.
