Experience with Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe
The nostalgia It is an important factor in video games. This can be seen in the sales of games that have been remastered years later or in the Game Boy games available on Nintendo Switch Online. However, sometimes you have to look closely at these versions to see if their purchase is justified. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe son two games in oneemulating the success of The Forgotten Land.
This means that it continues very similar patterns with Kirby 3D game. New content gets double the hours of play in terms of history, in addition to firmly betting on local multiplayer up to 4 players and some online functions that pass with shame and without glory.
Story Mode: The Subplot
This version of the Wii game does not make any changes to the story major. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe has an Adventure mode where a curious interdimensional traveler named Maglor has an accident with his ship on Planet Pop. He loses all the pieces as oars or wings, so ask Kirby for help to get them all back. The interesting thing comes after completing the original part of the game.
The epilogue starring Maglor, a secondary story that gives the character more depth. At least in terms of mechanics because Maglor becomes playable the duration of this new phase, which is not short. Again, this epilogue is made up of more than 20 levels which include additional challenges similar to what Kirby has.
Gameplay more varied than ever
As a platform game, the gameplay is the cornerstone of this installment and seeks to improve the original version. For this, many have been added copy skills new for Kirby, a large arsenal of powers that can overwhelm casual gamers. There is 25 powers in total, many already known as the whip, the sword or the bombs. There is no shortage of elemental powers based on fire, water or wind nor single-use abilities.
Each one with its own combos to adapt to the characteristics of the enemies. After all, that’s what it’s all about. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe is a game where you have to continually adapt if you don’t want to die fast. HAL Laboratory puts the resources and the player his creativity to complete the levels, since sometimes there are several ways to achieve the same goal. so you will solve easy puzzles that do not break the rhythm of the game, quite the contrary.
It’s a very Kirby game dynamic, agile and without downtime. The scenarios are quite linear, except surprise, but they play a lot with the verticality. You just have to deviate a bit to collect everything from the level and at the end a most powerful boss and familiar. Enemies that we have seen dozens of times in Kirby games and a new opportunity to face them. In addition to the combats, there are time trials (now in full color) where time marks a deadly fog and Kirby only has his ability to absorb. Again we are before a copy and paste the original title.
Maglor and his skill tree
The difference is in Maglor’s epilogue. This character loses his powers and has to get all your magic back distributed by scenarios. Enemies also drop a lot of magic and Maglor can increase their chances making combos. As if it were not enough to know an alternative history, Maglor has his own skill tree that you need to upgrade to face level bosses. We liked the idea of stopping being Kirby for a moment to help the mysterious traveler.
Among his powers are the energy spheres, levitation, spikes Or the bombs. You can even improve your life points. Quite a discovery that will make you have a good time. Between level and level, there are also challenges to test the numerous mechanics and there are some phases where you have to defend a container full of magic from all the enemies that appear. A kind of minigame within the game itself. Many of these abilities allow you to interact with elements of the environment.
Have a special attack which he can only cast if he has energy, the equivalent of Kirby’s Super ability. Although not so impressive. As you can see, there are many parallels between one and the other, but they feel very different. Returning to the main mode, the objective is to recover all the energy spheres and thus unlock more content. On the one hand, the training rooms; on the other, challenges based on a specific ability. And a third one that has improved a lot compared to the original content: the minigames.
The minigames, an amusement park
Maglor has built a theme park called Magloland for the Waddle Dees, a place to play quick games alone or with friends. A compilation with best minigames in the series and a completely new pair of Deluxe. Includes a total of 10 attractions where local multiplayer it becomes more competitive never. If during the adventure, until 3 players they can help Kirby, here we all become rivals.
They are very addictive and short, so it’s easy to sting even with yourself. Very funny the timing games to eat some eggs or throw shuriken at a target, both included in the original version. We also play tennis with a frying pan and a pump; the mythical Samurai Kirby to draw our sword or some bumper cars with ships perfect for 4 players. Certainly 8 games have been added to the title and in many cases can be used the motion sensor of the Joy-Con controllers.
Finally, it is necessary to mention the totally new games that Deluxe provides. A memory game to collect Maglor books and a 4 player shooter with very successful pistols. Participation in the games, as well as the achievements obtained, are embodied in stamps for get rewards– From consumable items to collectible skins that Kirby can don. It may not sound like much, but there are quite a few things to get 100% of the game.
Bet on multiplayer
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe is a bet on multiplayer from beginning to end. It is not until the end that the Colosseum is unlocked, a new way to fight against a number of enemies in the game. It works the same as in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, but supports up to 4 players simultaneously. Together with the minigames and the story mode, it is clear that this installment It is also enjoyed in company.
In cooperative nothing has changed. Additional players can choose between Metal Knight, King Dedede, a Waddle Dee and Kirbys colored to accompany player 1. While the Kirbys do can absorb everything that comes before it, skills included, the others have their own blows. They can hang onto Kirby, but in other situations they are more limited. As for the online, there is an online minigame to compete in Samurai Kirby against 100 players online, but it’s somewhat anecdotal.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe Final Rating
Deluxe is a copy and paste the original game, but with new plugins that work. It can be said that Maglor’s Epilogue is almost like a new game, something they had already done with Tierra Olvidada with good results. It sure feels like an adventure that brings more gameplay than in history, but you have to complete the Adventure mode to see the most striking changes.
To this must be added the varied collection of minigames that are very addictive and will make us have a good time until completing 100%, especially with friends. There are several levels of difficulty so that the placid adventure becomes a real challenge with impressive combats. On a technical and visual level, Deluxe improves significantly on Switch with lighting effects and textures of the most successful environment.
