Kirby’s Dream Land Cheats & Cheat Codes for Gameboy

Kirby’s Dream Land Cheats & Cheat Codes for Gameboy

Known in Japan as Hoshi no Kirby, Kirby’s Dream Land is a 1992 platformer developed by Hal Laboratory, the same developer that went on to develop the smash hit series, Super Smash Bros. In Japan, the game was released for the Nintendo Game Boy in April with the other regions received it in August. The game generally received positive reviews on release but in retrospect, the game falls into the same pitfalls that other platformers of the time did –being a bit too simple. The game was the highest-grossing in the series, with over 5 million copies sold, until the release of Kirby and the Forgotten Land.

The Premise Of Kirby’s Dream Land

Set in the country of Dreamland, Kirby has to defeat King Dedede and his minions as they swoop down from his castle and steal all the food in the land. The game consists of 5 side-scrolling levels and the player’s goal is to clear the level by defeating the boss at the end. You can get points by defeating enemies and grabbing items, with an extra life granted when the player has enough points. The last level before the final boss consists of a victory lap boss rush where you must fight all the game’s bosses again.

If the player loses all their lives, they’ll receive a Game Over screen but can start from the beginning of the current stage by selecting Continue. After beating the game, you receive a code that allows for an optional new game plus, called the Extra Game, where the difficulty is significantly increased. Once you beat this new mode, you receive an additional code that allows you to adjust the game further making the game easier or even harder.
