Kirby’s Adventure Cheats & Cheat Codes for NES, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo 3DS

Kirby’s Adventure is a platformer developed by Hal Laboratory in 1993. The game was released initially for the NES before being remade for the Game Boy Advance in 2002. The remake, titled Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land added better graphics and multiplayer support but at its core, the original game is intact. The original NES version was re-released on the Nintendo 3DS in 2011. The game today is considered to be one of the best NES games and currently sits at 77 on Metacritic.

The Premise of Kirby’s Adventure

Kirby’s Adventure is commended for its responsive controls and copy ability. The copy ability allows Kirby to inhale and swallow certain enemies and obtain powers based on the enemy. This ability is probably the most recognizable power in Kirby’s arsenal. Kirby also retains his abilities from Kirby’s Dream Land. The game consists of 41 levels across seven worlds with each world containing 5 levels and a Boss fight. The game saves the player’s progress between each level without the need for a save room or a password. If Kirby loses all of his health it’s game over but Kirby can stay healthy by collecting food items.
