Excerpt: In fact, Kirby games are based around content that's as different as possible from some of the more sexually-themed games. Instead of flesh-eating zombies or gangsters with a predilection for spank, HAL's mascot is faced with little kamikaze birds and trees that drop apples. Scary.
Excerpt: I have long been a fan of Kirby, ever since I first played Kirby's Adventure for the NES. Thus, when I got a Game Boy Player, one of the first games I bought was the GBA remake of that game, Nightmare in Dream Land. Nintendo has been on a spree of remaking old games ever since the GBA came out, and this is just one of the many.
Excerpt: Growing up in the heyday of the NES was both a cause of great pleasure and great pain for me. I was able to see all of the great games, like Mario 3 and Contra, but at the same time I was never able to really play them because of my sisters’ control over her NES. Years later she still has that NES and I still don’t, but fortunately I’ve got a Gameboy Advance, and thankfully I’m dealing with one of the laziest companies in the world, Nintendo.
Summary: Kirby’s Adventure is coming “right back at ya" in this GBA conversion, and TYP’s here to help you prepare in this import review! Kirby sucks, but not in the way Microsoft wants you to think!
Pros: Added/altered rooms in stages, Classic Kirby platforming goodness, Excellent graphics and sound, Improved/tweaked powers, Kirby is so friggin’ cute, Super-secret kick-ass unlockable mode
Cons: Kirby is so friggin’ cute, Level alterations make some secret areas easier to reach, New graphics make some secrets more obvious, No more Crane Fever!, No sleep mode or save state, Wheel sound effect way off, Younger gamers will never know how to properly draw Kirby
