Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Super Nintendo Entertainment System, 1997)
About this product
|In the first two games in this series, Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Land 2, everyone's favorite pink puff spent his time in the handheld world of the Game Boy. Now Kirby's ready for the big time as Kirby's Dream Land 3 hits televisions everywhere via the 16-bit Super NES. Once again, Kirby must save planet PopStar, but this time he's brought along some friends.|
A menacing cloud of Dark Matter surrounds PopStar, compelling its inhabitants to turn evil. Using his ability to suck enemies in and spit them back out at other enemies, Kirby must walk, dash, duck, drop, jump, fly and fight his way through five stages containing six levels each. If Kirby swallows an enemy, he can take on its special abilities. For example, Rocky will turn him to stone and KeKe gives him a broom for sweeping enemies off their feet.
At various locations throughout the game, Kirby can unite with and hop on characters with different helpful attributes. For example, Kine is a great swimmer, Nago can perform a triple jump, and Coo can fly. There are 48 attack combinations in all.
Kirby's best buddy Gooey, who has the same abilities as Kirby, fights alongside him and is controlled by the computer or the player using the second controller. Our heroes will journey through Grass Land, Ripple Field, Sand Canyon, Cloudy Park and Iceberg.
There are numerous items to pick up, such as warp stars, energy drink and invincible candy, and a variety of mini-games to play. When Kirby's vitality reaches zero, he loses a life. The game is over when he runs out of lives.

Cute and fun game. One of my favorites.
Kirby's Dream Land 3 for the SNES is a cute and fun sidescroller for all ages. It is extremely rare to find compared to other SNES titles, especially with box and manual.
-Very easy-to-master controls.
-A variety of interesting and unique levels, enemies, bosses, abilities, and allies.
-Very cute graphics, sound, and music.
-Humorous introductions to every world.
-You can split kirby into 2 with the A button. Kirby's shadow can be controlled at any time with the second controller for simultaneous 2 player action or can be left to be on auto-pilot.
-You can keep a save file that will keep track of your progress, displaying how much of the game you have completed with 0%-100% (similar to Kirby's Adventure on the NES or Donkey Kong Country on the SNES)
-Every level has a regular goal and a hidden bonus objective. Beat all of the levels and their secrets to get 100%.
-The difficulty level is very comfortable, not excessively difficult. The game starts very easy, but gets moderately challenging towards the end.
-Kirby can just float through some of the levels if you are feeling lazy. On the plus side, there are less levels in Kirby's Dream Land 3 that this can be done in than in previous kirby titles.
-When playing 2 players, player 1 can sometimes eat player 2 accidently. Its not a big deal as it is reversable, but it can be annoying sometimes. This can be avoided by having player 1 use an enemy's power or by having player 2 ride on one of the many animal allies.
-Some animal allies hinder game play more than they help. The game will force you to team up with those animals sometimes to complete some of the secret objectives. I suppose its a part of the challenge factor.
Kirby's Dream Land 3 is definetly one of my favorite SNES titles. I love to sit down with my wife and play this game together from time to time (and to occasionally replay through it solo). Because of its cute nature and easy controls, its a good gateway game to get your girl friend or wife interested with gaming. Would recomend this title to anyone.Read full review

Literally the last game in the SNES advertisement. A Great Part of History.
The Last Commercialized game for the SNES. A must have for collectors and a great game none the less.
