Product Description

Kirby Super Star plays like a standard 16-bit era platforming video game, in which Kirby, the main character, can go left, right, up and down on a two dimensional plane. Throughout each level, Kirby must avoid touching environmental hazards and a variety of enemies, who mostly have their own attacks. Kirby has a health meter, and when this is depleted, Kirby loses one life and returns to a save point. If he loses all of his lives, the game ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kirby Game....BY FAR! September 29, 2008
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I waited for this game for months and now I have my hands on it.
Did I like it? Well, the title of this review should state it!

KSSU is everything Superstar on the SNES was but add in NICER graphics,
some new Boss Themes, "Revenge Of The King", "MetaKnightmare Ultra","True Arena", "Helper To Hero", NEW Bosses, 3 Touchscreen Mini Games, some nice cutscene movies on top of everything that's already there and you got yourself an EVEN more incredible Kirby game!

Seriously, I don't think I have anything bad to say about KSSU. It's just THAT good. Yeah, the games go by rather quick and it's not insanely difficult but trust me you will be kept entertained for hours on end trying to get that oh so perfect 100% rating on your game file! I know
I was.

Hats off to the pink ball! After the decent Squeak Squad & pretty original interesting Canvas Curse....he has a NICE Revamp comeback
game on the DS that he can truly be proud of. If you are a Kirby fan...
do yourself a favor, stop reading and BUY IT NOW!

4.0 out of 5 stars Puyo? Puyo! October 10, 2008
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
KSSU is a enhanced remake of the Super Nintendo game Kirby Super Star with similar graphics to the recent Kirby Squeak Squad. Super Star was a collection of short bite sized versions of the normal Kirby games and each game slightly tweaks the traditional Kirby gameplay. In the other Kirby games (except the original Kirby's Dream Land) Kirby can copy powers from most enemies but one hit will knock that power out of you. In most of these games it takes multiple hits to lose a power and powers have different effects depending if you are moving, jumping, charged up, etc. Also for the first time in a Kirby game there are full 3D cutscenes.
All of the main games and one of the minigames from the original are included in addition to a few new games. Here is a brief description of the games included.
Spring Breeze: This is made up of screens and bosses from the first Kirby game, Dream Land. There is also a two player mode, with player two as a helper.
Dyna Blade: An original adventure similar to SB in gameplay, but with a world map.
The Great Cave Offensive: There are 60 (somewhat) hidden items to collect. There are some fun Nintendo items to find like a Koopa shell, the Triforce, and Captain Falcon's helmet.
Gourmet Race: A race with King Dedede. You are trying to collect more food and get to the finish line before the King.
Revenge of Meta Knight: A timed game where you are trying to destroy Meta Knight's ship the Halberd. (You may recognize it from a board in

4.0 out of 5 stars The Super Tough Cream-Puff Is Back! November 4, 2008
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you enjoyed the original super star, this game will not disappoint! It has six ace levels, including Dynablade and Spring Breeze, not to mention three sub games. The main concept is to suck up foes and copy abilities, then use these to fight other enemies, such as King Dedede and Sir Meta Knight. Another great feature is the ability to make friends which will fight along side you. Or you can connect with real friends. Having adventures in groups is better then exploring on your own!

I enjoyed the cute character design that is typical for Japanese anime games [those who have seen the anime 'Hoshi no Kirby'[known in the USA as Kirby!Right Back at Ya!] will recognize some of the characters] and the happy feeling this game gives you, with its bright colors and eye-catching designs!

One thing that bothers me is the easiness of the levels, and how quickly you can finish the game. Still, it's a great buy, especially for children under the age of 12. A must buy for Kirby fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Son's Favorite ( he won't shut up about it ) January 8, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When my 7 year old son says he has to have a new DS game, I can't help but think of the games that remain untouched and forgotten on his shelf. With this edition of Kirby, however, I have no worries. A Christmas present: he plays it everyday and then proceeds to tell me about every level or adventure Kirby encounters. The kid talks of nothing else. I come home from work and his first words to me are "You know what, Dad, in Kirby . . . "

I've never played the game, but in the heart and soul of my little guy, Kirby trumps Mario, Sonic, and Pokemon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Exceeds Expectations!! November 25, 2009
By Tyler
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I bought this game at Wal-mart today because I didn't feel like waiting for it.
I have to say, at first, I was very pleased with it. I figured it was going to be pretty much the same as
the SNES version. Well, I was wrong. It far surpasses the SNES version. Every-time I thought it was the end, more
games kept popping up. I was able to perfect my file the same day I got it but, it was hard to do and this game has excellent re-play value. It would take any normal gamer at least a couple days to perfect. I'm not bragging, it's just that I had to play it non-stop until 2 in the morning... Not to mention I'm quite fast at these types of games. Anyway, I'd like to do a mini review on each of the different games. First, the ones from the SNES version.

Spring Breeze - This is the same as the SNES version pretty much. 3 levels and then a fight with King Dedede.

Dyna Blade - Again, the same as on the SNES. 4 different levels (2 secret item levels) and a fight with Dyna Blade.

The Great Cave Offensive - Another one from the SNES Version. One giant level with 60 hidden treasures to find.

Gourmet Race - From SNES, more like a mini-game where you race King Dedede in 3 races and try and get the most food.

Revenge of Metaknight - Another one from SNES, a timed adventure on an exploding ship. Metaknight waits at the end.

Milky Way Wishes - Last one from the SNES and perhaps my favorite. In this game, the enemies don't give you powers, instead, you need to find special ability trophies. Once you find them, anytime you want, you can have that power for unlimited use. Soar across 7 different planets, gather special abilities, and defeat Marx at the end.

Now, here are the new ones, special to the "Ultra" version.
