Released February 1, 1995- Kirby’s Dream Course

Kirby’s Dream Course rolled into the North American market on this day in 1995. For the Super Nintendo!

Kirby’s Dream Course is a mini-golf game featuring everyone’s favorite pink blob, Kirby!

It plays a lot like other games of the same type. Kirby will be dropped into different courses and must align shots perfectly in order to reach the goal. However, there is a distinct difference. In Kirby’s Dream Course, the goal will not appear unless all enemies have to be taken out. Therefore, its required of players to aim their shots in such a way that they take out all enemies with the fewest number of shots taken. This requires a basic knowledge of physics and sheer skill as the levels are occasionally riddled with additional traps. The game includes eight courses with a total of 64 holes to play, meaning you have to know your stuff for the battle against King Dedede at the end!

Kirby’s Dream Course was received well by critics at the time. Unfortunately, gamers today just can’t really get behind it. The game hasn’t aged very well, like many Golf based games of this era. Still, Nintendo re-released it as part of the 21 games available on the Super Nintendo Classic Edition released late in 2017.
