Kirby's Dream Land is the start of the Kirby series.


"Kirby to the rescue! Dream Land is in peril! An evil king has stolen the magic Twinkle Stars. If they're not recovered, the people of Dream Land could starve. Meet Kirby, a roly-poly little hero, as he runs, jumps, floats, and swims in search of the treasured Twinke Stars. He'll puff his way through castles, caves, dungeons, and forests. In his path are many wicked and greedy enemies, but Kirby has a special way to defeat them! It's non-stop action all the way to the top of Mt. Dedede!"

The gluttonous King Dedede and his band of thieves have stolen all of Dream Land's food, as well as the Dream Lander's Sparkling Stars, which they require to gather more of it. To prevent the inhabitants of Dream Land from starving, a young boy named Kirby sets out towards Mt. Dedede to retrieve the food and Sparkling Stars, the latter of which are guarded by powerful bosses affiliated with the king.


The player controls Kirby, who can suck up enemies and either spit them out or digest them which, unlike future games doesn't give Kirby any powers. He can also suck up air and fly, a very useful skill.
