  • Summary: Delve into the land of dreams-turned-nightmares as Kirby flies with the stars in 3D. 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure offers you a chance to explore the world of Dream Land in a whole new way. The landscape comes to life as Kirby crosses land, sea, and sky in his quest to restore the Star Rod. After waking from a dreamless sleep, Kirby goes to investigate the Dream Spring only to find that its source of energy has been stolen by King Dedede. Broken and divided across seven worlds, Kirby will need to use his unique ability to steal enemies' powers as he battles and to restore the pieces of the Star Rod. Without it, how can a hero fight another day if he can't get a good night's sleep? Embark on this adventure as the beloved pink character tries to save the citizens of Dream Land from a lifetime of terrible nightmares. Expand

    For those who haven't had chance to play it, there is no better recommendation in 3D line Classics.

    It was fun then, it's still fun now, and if this is a taste of what's to come in future 3D Classics titles then I'm greatly looking forward to them.
  3. If you've already got this from the Wii Virtual Console, the 3D doesn't justify the price, but for everyone else this is another ace Kirby game.

    I just wish they'd taken this project all the way, instead of stopping with "good enough."

    Hidden exits, fun minigames and fantastic stage design all come together to make this an endlessly replayable experience, but the 3D Classics upgrade doesn't really bring much to the table in addition. In fact, aside from portability, there's really nothing to recommend it over the Virtual Console release, and that's a shame.

    We've always praised this game for its catchy music, bubblegum graphics and likeable hero. Nothing here has changed our collective opinion. If anything, this is the definitive Kirby's Adventure.

    Kirby's first outing puts the Wii game to shame - pity it's so crushed onscreen. [Christmas 2011, p.81]

    If you are a fan of the pink puffball and want to play a game that has a retro feel to it in 3d, this is a must-have. it is a faithful port of the original NES game and has the difficulty of the games of yesterday. the price is right as well since it's a lot of value for only $6.99+taxes.

    i was never a fan, thought it's too childish and colourful and all.. but guess what?! this game defines what a classic is, and the amount of fun and re-playability is unlimited
    if you're blessed with a 3DS, consider getting this game

    Well it is exactly the original NES game, with relatively good 3D effects. If you like the original you will like this one, too. I still think, people, who not know the original game may be somehow disappointed. Expand

    Whether or not you played the original, this remake of the classic Kirby's Adventure is a fantastic experience. The platforming is enjoyable, and Kirby's adorableness and unique copy ability are both just as great as they've ever been. The 3d is only slight, and at times you won't notice it, but it stills adds to the experience and is done well. The game itself is fairly short, and can be completed in 1 or 2 days, but it's still a great handheld platformer, and hidden switches in levels, which are at times near-impossible to find, will keep you coming back to the game. Once you've completed the game 100%, an extra mode becomes available which ups the difficulty as it disables saving, and halves Kirby's maximum health. The game gets fairly difficult towards the end, and it's a brilliant challenge for new and old gamers alike. Overall, 3d classics: Kirby's Adventure is a brilliant game, and if you're going to buy anything from the 3DS eShop, I suggest you make it this. Expand

    If you're looking for a solid title on the eShop, this comes highly recommended in my book. While the game is relatively on the short side, I found it very replayable and, at times, quite challenging. If you're a fan of the original, the 3D is a pleasant surprise. Even newcomers to this classic will appreciate its subtle sense of depth. It is a bit unfortunate they couldn't get the game to fill the whole top screen, but the good outweighs the bad, and this is definitely a title to consider. Expand

    A great remake of an instant classic. Kirby's Adventure still remains one of the best games I have ever played. Even of course, has my favorite character in the Kirby series, Meta Knight. The game is short though. Score: 3/5. Expand

    This game is very enjoyable. This game is one of the only games I play with 3D on all the time. Of course this game isn't the most exciting game ever, but it provides a good amount of nostalgia to all players, played the original or not. I do recommend this game to anyone :) Expand
