Product Description

In Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the pink puffy hero embarks on another adventure to save his neighbours from King Dedede, who has interrupted everyone's peaceful dreams. Kirby must collect the scattered pieces of the Star Rod and restore the Fountain of Dreams. How's he going to do this? By copying the bad guys' best moves and eating--yes, eating--them and their weapons. One copy of the game supports up to four players (via the separately sold Game Link Cable) with special mini games, but if there's a copy of the game in Game Boy Advance, players can play cooperatively through the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kirby is back with an upgrade! 24 July 2003
Format:Video Game
Some of you may remember this game from about 10 years back. In 1993, this brilliant game was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and was known as "Kirby's Adventure".
In the game, you play as the hero, Kirby. Kirby is a small round pink "blob", with red feet. The controls are simple too - A is Jump (if you repeatedly press A or the up arrow, you will float in the air), and B is to inhale.
When you inhale an enemy, you can either spit it out (B again), or press DOWN, and you will copy that enemy's ability, for example, UFO, Ice, Fire, etc. There are 24 abilities in all.
This is a fun game with beautiful graphics. Young children will enjoy playing the game for the first time, and older gamers may remember it from when they were young. However, it's all over too quickly.
I didn't rate this 5 stars because of a few reasons:
- Too short
- Changed mini games (the old ones were better, but the "Kirby's Air Grind" game is fun)
- The changed beginning. The introduction sequence used to have a cute session on how to draw Kirby (which has been replaced with a load of Kirbies making their way across the screen).
All in all though, a beautiful game, with quite good replay value makes this a good game for young children, or old children wanting to rekindle their youth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool! a good buy indeed 19 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
A very cool game were you get to control Kirby himself on your GBA. He can swallow up enemies and copy their abilities, if they have one because not all do. He can become a night or a fire man, or a guy who shoots with a laser too with many other abilities awaiting. There are 7 massive worlds, were in each you get to fight a different boss and there are an average of 2 special games per level. IN Kirby's quest he has to retrieve the Star Rod by defeating King Dodo and place it back in the fountain of dreams.
A very good game...it really gets 4 and a half stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is AWESOME! 2 Aug 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
The world's coolest pink ball is back with all new copy abilities, bosses, warp stars, and tons more! This game is awesome! Even though it doesn't take long to beat the game, you can play it a zillion times! Kirby lives higher than my expectations though the name sounded kinda wierd when I first heard it. That won't matter after you've played the game. Its way different from Kirby: The Crystal Shards because if you get hit, you lose your power and there's no combos. You can also float forever. One of the copy abilities is kinda dumb its called sleep. But that's the only one. The others like laser, UFO, and needle are cool.
Multiplayer is also awesome. You can fight bosses and everybody with your friends. The sub-games are pretty cool, but when you beat the game, you get the coolest sub-game.
10/10 - Graphics: they can't make it better.
10/10 - Gameplay: cool storyline.
9/10 - Bosses: the bosses are pretty easy until you get to
DeDeDe and the nightmares.
9/10 - Duration: doesn't last long (even thought there are 8
levels) but you can keep on playing over and over and...
you get the idea
10/10 - Control: easy to control
10/10 - Overall: definetly one of the coolest game for GBA; a
must have for EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kirby is the master in DreamLand 16 Nov 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
This game is unbelievable when I got it.Kirby is finaly out for game boy advance and I feel really great about it. Now that kirby is here he has over 24 incredible new attacks from all his amazing adventures. The greatest island on this game is ice cream island everyone thinks that this island seems tasty. when you play this game you can see kirby fly over things with his warpstar, battle his old bosses which are more powerful than before, and travel through many islands to save the world from the evil nightmares. when kirby fights king dededes monster all of his attacks will move even faster than before so he won't lose a life. The islands that are going to be on the game are
GREEN GREENS
ICE CREAM ISLAND
BUTTER BUILDING
GRAPE GARDEN
RED CANYON
ORANGE OCEAN
RIPPLE FIELD
FLOATING ISLAND
and RAINBOW RESORT.
Those are all the islands that are going to be on this greatest adventure game ever. Good luck Kirby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kirby: Re-done 29 Nov 2002
By "chrisobraze" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
This is truly a great game. I had played the very old Kirby's Adventure for NES and I noticed that this game is a remake of it! Kirby's Adventure was one of my favorite all-time games. It's a fun game and will bring hours of joy to any one. If you have played Kirby's Dremland 2-3 for the SNES it is nothing like that. Those where some really bad games (i think). This ones not all about being cute. This ones about battling enemy's by taking there power. It's a blast, espicially in multiplayer. (Which uses only 1 game pack). And it is not as easy as it may look. Some of the boss battle's will take a couple for trys. I am so glad to see this game return. It's kinda hard not to recommend this great game to anyone (and everyone)!

4.0 out of 5 stars My 1st journey to Dreamland 5 Dec 2005
By potato_salad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had played one on Game Boy way back and the one on N64 but I couldn't remember if I enjoyed them or not. BUt I got this game anyway based on the back of the box. And boy I am not dissapointed because this game is great.

Concept: You play as Kirby, a pink blob with arms which can suck up the powers of enemies. It is extremely fun even if it doesn't sound all that engaging.

Story: King DeDeDe was taking a bath in the Fountain of Dreams and apparently he took the Star Rod(the source of power for the Fountain of Dreams). He then broke it into pieces and gave a piece to each of his underlings. Now Kirby has to get all the pieces and restore peaceful naptimes to the residents of Dream Land.

Graphics: Simple, charming, and appealing. Bright colors perk up the background and character models.

Sounds: Catchy sounds and fun music.

Gameplay: Very simple. Down-Duck, A-Jump, & Left or Right- Walk. Double tap Left or Right-Run. Tapping A more than once and Kirby floats. B-suck enemies and after you suck one tap Down then you obtain their power. That about all there is too it.

Overall: Very simple yet entertaining enough to keep playing. Trying to get 100%, fun mini-games, half-life mode, and the ability to play as meta-knight give this game great replay value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kirby's glory days revisited on the GBA 4 Aug 2006
By F0X H0UND - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Nightmare in Dream Land's story is simple: King DeDeDe has stolen the Rod of Dreams, which in turn takes away the people of Dream Land's dreams. It is up to Kirby to get it back and restore everyones dreams.

The gameplay is real basic, and to be honest, real fun. You run around the levels as Kirby who has the power to jump, inhale air and basically fly for a little bit, swim, and swallow hisenemies for thier abilities. There are roughly 30 moves, some exclusive to this NES remake, including shooting lasers, throwing large blade-boomerangs, turning into a tornadoe, or surrounding yourself with ice.

If you find certain secrets within the stages, you can unlock mini-games and an "ability gallery" which was cool. Some mini-games include grinding on a pipe and having to press "A" to jump over spiked portions of the railing while racing other colored Kirbys, or having to face-off with a handful of enemies by pressing "A" faster then they can so you can beat them up. There are more but I just don't feel like getting into it. As for the gallery, it's pretty sweet - you enter this room and usually there are 2 different abilities waiting for you to take them. Sadly, this game didn't borrow from the SNES smash hit "Kirby Super Stars" or even the N64 title "Kirby Crystal Shards" with the idea of combining abilities, but we can look past it for now.

The graphics are definitley an upgrade from the original NES title, and are very colorful and nice. The enemies style look unique and interesting, the abilities still look devastating, and levels are really nice looking for a GBA game. It sort of has a cartoon feel now that I think about it..

The music is great and really catchy. I can't really explain it - imagine it as sort of a techno beat, but much more...hmm..less serious and more experimental. The SFX are great as well - I love the sound of the bombs exploding or the firey sound.. superb. There isn't any talking in this game, but after witnessing the cartoon series and the N64 game of Kirby, I'm grateful for that.

Nightmare in Dream Land isn't really too hard of a game, and it isn't really a long game either. Sure there are maybe 7 different worlds with about 8 different stages within the worlds, but they fly by pretty quick and easily. What is kind of annoying is that sometimes the controls will be unresponsive - you'll be running forward, then wanna quickly turn around to attack an approaching enemy, but Kirby is still running forward and BAM you get hit. I'm not going to type out the ending, but lets just say it was sorta dissapointing.

To finish it up, I highly suggest you atleast play this game. Yes, it gets repetitive, but with it's basic side-scrolling gameplay, nice graphics, interesting levels, and wide array of abilities & mini-games, how could you truley get bored? Better yet, its a remake of an old NES game, and a good one at that. Go and play Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland if you haven't already.
