The Super Nintendo Entertainment System or SNES for short has a lot of platform games during its prime. Maybe the ubiquity of platformers was due to the graphical limitations during that time.
Still, side-scrolling platform games are fun to play, especially when the game comes with a lot of different perks and game modes.
In this article, we are going to talk about the Kirby Super Star Game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
In this game, you will control Kirby, a cute pink character that can ingest enemies and copy their abilities so that he can use the against other foes.
There is also a nifty feature called “helpers” that, well, help Kirby in his quest to defeat the enemy. Helpers can be obtained when a player opts to create a help once Kirby swallows an enemy and copies its abilities.
The helper will be used by the computer AI to aid Kirby or you can also set it to be controlled by another player, may it be your friend or family member.
Kirby has the power to make his helpers change form and he also has the power to convert them into powerups should the need arise. This is actually an interesting dynamic and I think the Kirby games are actually the ones who pioneered this form of gameplay (swallowing enemies, get their abilities and turn them into either powerups or helpers).
Now, the Kirby Super Star Game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is pretty diverse because it has a lot of game modes. We will talk about them one by one in the succeeding paragraphs.
The first major game mode is the Spring Breeze. In this game mode, it is actually just a remade version of Kirby’s Dream Land with a few notable exceptions. For one, Kirby doesn’t have to fight previous bosses and he can go directly to King Dedede and defeat him. Second, Kaboola does not appear in the remade version.
The next major game mode is the Dyna Blade. In this game mode, Kirby vows to stop the Titular main villain. Dyna Blade is a bird with colorful wings made of blades and it is terrorizing the Dream Land’s crops. It is your job to stop this flying menace from wreaking havoc.
Gourmet Race is the third game mode and it is a game mode where Kirby has to race against King Dedede and gather as many foods as possible.
The Great Cave Offensive, the fourth game mode, Kirby is set to explore a cave filled with wonderful treasures. Your goal is to simply get all of the 60 hidden treasures.
The last major game mode is the Revenge of Meta Knight. In this game mode, Kirby wants to stop the Meta Knight’s battleship called the “Halberd”, which Meta Knight uses to terrorize Dream land.
The Kirby Super Star Game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is a pretty diverse game and no wonder this game is one of the top games for the platform.
