If you watched my playthroughs of the original Kirby’s Dream Land and Kirby’s Adventure, it should come as no surprise that I am a noob at these games. I only really played through that first game, which was incredibly easy, and outside of a tiny bit of dabbling here and there, these other games remained untouched for me. In some ways though, this is really good, because these are unique retrogaming adventures that I get to embark on with you guys!
Kirby’s Dream Land 2 is much longer than the first game, fairly close in length to Kirby’s Adventure. A lot of the mechanics from the NES game are present in this one (such as eating enemies to gain their powers), and now Kirby has various animal friends that can help him on his adventure. The game also has a collection mechanism, where Kirby needs to find seven Rainbow Drops in order to open the way to the true final boss – Dark Matter.
Unfortunately, this is a very casual run, so we don’t actually reach Dark Matter itself. Instead, our game ends after a battle with (a mind-controlled) King Dedede, and we achieve a score of 79%. Maybe one day I will return to get the last 21% and open the way to Dark Matter, but we’ll just have to see.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one and, as always, please subscribe and share the love!
