Kirby's Dream Land

As the first game in the Kirby series, Kirby's Dream Land is a platformer that is easy for new players to pick up. Kirby has a variety abilities to overcome the environment in different ways. Kirby can create a vacuum with his mouth and suck in enemies up to halfway across the screen and then spit them out to hit other enemies. Kirby is also able to inflate and float around in the air to avoid enemies or reach high areas. Kirby is also able to use a standard jump if you need to reach an area quickly. Kirby's signature copy ability to gain an enemy's moves is introduced in Kirby's Adventure for the NES. Each area is guarded by a boss at the end and you must use your wits to observe their attacks and figure out how to use Kirby's abilities against them. The play control rivals that of even the Mario handhelds and the difficulty is much more relaxed than in most platforming games so if you are looking for a more relaxing adventure then check out Kirby's Dream Land.
