Kirby's Dream Land (Game Boy)
Dedede has stolen all the food in Dream Land, and Kirby must get them back before everyone starves! This was the first Kirby game released, and Kirby was white, not pink. You cannot save, but the game is short. It has four levels (each with a boss) and is very easy. In the fifth level, you fight all the bosses again before fighting Dedede as the final boss. Also, after you win, you get to play the Extra Game, which is the same except some things have changed to make the game a lot harder. You may have trouble beating Green Greens in the Extra Game. When that is beaten, you will be able to go to Config mode and configure the hitpoints, lives, etc.
Kirby's Adventure (NES):
Oh, no! Dedede is bathing in the fountain of dreams and everyone has nightmares when they sleep now! Later, you find out that Dedede is actually doing this to hide the Star Rod from Nightmare. This is a very fun game but with a stupid name considering that all Kirby games are adventures. This game was the first game that you could save and the first game with color. Fight through all 8 levels to win the game!
Kirby's Pinball Land (Game Boy):
Dedede is challenging Kirby to a pinball game. Kirby becomes a pinball and must battle through the pinball lands and beat Dedede! This pinball game is a fun and challenging game!
Kirby's Dream Course (SNES):
One night, the inhabitants looked at the sky. It was pitch-black, without a single star! The people became so worried that they stopped sleeping and eating meals. Weeks passed, until someone said, "I think Dedede's behind all this." Rumors spread. Kirby must now defeat King Dedede (again) in this golf-type game. (I think this is by far the most boring Kirby game!)
Kirby's Avalanche (SNES):
There is an avalanche contest in Dream Land! Many people are competing for the gold trophy, including Kirby! Can Kirby win? Compete through the competitors and find out! Strangely, in most Kirby games, Kirby never makes a sound, but in this game, Kirby is shown insulting is opponents in full sentences. That was because technically, Kirby's Avalanche wasn't a Kirby game. It was just Super Puyo Puyo with different sprites and music.
Kirby's Dream Land 2 (Game Boy)
Dark Matter, the evil villain, strikes! Join Kirby, Rick the Hamster, Coo the Owl, and Kine the Fish on their quest to solve the mystery of the rainbow island. This game is far from similar to its prequel because it is more challenging, longer, more fun, and you can save. Selling more than a million units, this game was a hit. Interestingly enough, this game was about to have a remake on the Game Boy Color, but it was canceled.
Kirby's Block Ball (Game Boy):
Kirby in must break through all the the blocks and face the final boss, King Dedede! Good luck, Kirby! It is a breakout game with many interesting twists, such as abilities and paddles on top, left, and right as well as the bottom.
Kirby Super Star (SNES):
This game is well-named; it's 8 (9?) in 1! Play through Spring Breeze (a remake of Kirby's Dream Land), Dyna Blade, Gourmet Race, Great Cave Offensive, Revenge of Meta Knight, Milky Way wishes, the sub-games (Megaton Punch and Samurai Kirby), and finally, the Arena, where you fight all the bosses of the game one by one. This was the first game where you pressed different button combinations to make ability combos.
Kirby's Star Stacker (Game Boy):
You need to help Kirby, Coo, Kine, and Rick stack the stars. It's very simple: just sandwich stars between identical friends. So what are you waiting for?
Kirby's Dream Land 3 (SNES):
One day, Kirby and his friend, Gooey went fishing on a hot summer day. Suddenly, Dark Matter appeared and black clouds rolled everywhere! Hurry, Kirby, Popstar's in trouble! This game gives you a "scribbly" feeling when you play it. Kirby has lost his unique abilities and kept the basic abilities. However, Rick, Coo, and Kine are back from Kirby's Dream Land 2 and you can pair up with them. In addition, Pitch the bird, Chuchu the octopus, and Nago the cat are also there for you to pair up with. Also, if you call Gooey up, he will be your sidekick and will attack any enemy he sees. Remember: just like the other games, you have not really won until you got 100% from finishing all the quests and got every bonus. Unlike Kirby's Dream Land 2, most people missed this game. The reason? The game was released OVER a year after the Nintendo 64, the next-generation Nintendo console, was released.
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Nintendo 64):
On the planet Ripple Star, fairies and gnomes lived peacefully. But the ghost of Dark Matter seeked their special talisman, the Fairy Crystal. One day, Dark Matter invaded. Clouds rolled everywhere. A fairy named Ribbon got onto the crystal and fled. Dark Matter was too fast and he broke the Crystal into millions of shards. Still holding onto a shard, Ribbon fell, fell, fell and landed right on Kirby. She told him what happened. With 3 more friends: Dedede, Waddle Dee (Dedede's servant), and Adeleine (a painter), Kirby is on his quest to find the shards. This was the first 3D game but the gameplay is strictly 2D. The game was the only N64 Kirby game released. There was another game called Kirby's Air Ride but it was cancele.
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble (Game Boy Color):
It is a peaceful day in Pop Star and little Kirby naps on a cloud. Suddenly, Waddle Dee scurries by and he looks really busy. And then there goes Dedede with something big...what could they be up to now? Kirby jumps onto his warp star (his source of power and travel) to find out. But awaiting him is Dream Land without its stars... This is a delightful and incredibly original game in which you tilt your game boy the direction you want Kirby to move. Beat all 8 levels to face the final boss, King Dedede!
Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land (Game Boy Advance):
This is a remake of Kirby's Adventure, since Kirby's Adventure was so popular. Normally, a remake wouldn't be really exciting, but the graphics are so fresh and colorful that it doesn't look like a remake. Even though there are some areas changed in Nightmare in Dream Land, a person who has played Kirby's Adventure would easily recognize the levels, enemies, and bosses in this game have a trip down memory lane.
Kirby Air Ride (Gamecube):
This was the first Kirby game for Gamecube and is a racing game. Ride different vehicles (including the warp star), copy different abilities, collect different bonuses, play different modes, and most importantly, have fun! You can also race your friends in multiplayer. There are lots of secrets, extras, and surprises in this fun-packed game. There was a game called Kirby's Air Ride for the Nintendo 64, but it was canceled and was completely different from this game.
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (Game Boy Advance):
Dark Mind, the evil sorcerer, has called Dark Meta Knight to break the mirror in Mirror World! Dark Meta Knight attacks Kirby, and slashes him into four different clones. One is green, another is yellow, and the last one is red. Meta Knight has a strong role in the game because Dark Meta Knight traps him in the mirror and Kirby must help Meta Knight escape. Now you can have 3 helpers on your quest (different-colored clones Kirby) that you can call over to help. Similar to Super Star, many abilities have combo moves, which makes each ability much more interesting. Also, this game is unique in the fact that it is not linear like most Kirby games. Instead, finding different interconnected paths to the rainbow world. There are many paths you can take, so you have to choose wisely.
