Kirby’s Dream Course

Kirby’s Dream Course[a] is a 1994 miniature golf video game developed by HAL Laboratory and Nintendo EAD and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). A spin-off of the Kirby series and the first released for the SNES, players control the pink spherical character Kirby through a series of courses by launching him towards the goal hole at the end. Kirby can hit enemies to collect power-ups that grant him unique abilities, such as those that allow him to destroy certain obstacles or fly around the level.

HAL Laboratory originally designed Dream Course as a standalone game called Special Tee Shot. Though it was previewed in several magazines and displayed on the packaging for the console, HAL replaced the game’s original characters with those from the Kirby series following its popularity on the Game BoySpecial Tee Shot was later released for the Satellaview peripheral in Japan. Dream Course received favorable reviews, both at release and retrospectively, for its unique design and absurdity. Some were critical of its high difficulty level and controls. It has been re-released through the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console digital storefronts and the Super NES Classic Edition. A sequel for the Nintendo 64 was in development but later canceled.


Kirby’s Dream Course is a mini golf video game set at an isometric perspective, similar to games such as Marble Madness (1984).[1] Its plot involves Kirby‘s nemesis King Dedede stealing all of the stars in the night sky.[2] Kirby sets out to stop Dedede and return the stars to the sky.[2]

Players maneuver Kirby (or in the case of player two, a yellow Kirby look-alike named Keeby (キービィ, Kībī)) around a miniature golf course by deflecting him towards a specific area of the playfield.[2] Players must set the power, angle, and spin to connect with various enemies found throughout the levels, claiming a star.[3] When only one enemy remains, that enemy transforms into the goal hole (providing two stars).[2] In multiplayer, players compete for the most stars, and a player may connect with a star claimed by the other player for themself (turning pink to yellow and vice versa). Kirby/Keeby can knock himself into certain enemies to acquire a Copy ability, which can be used to clear courses in a faster period of time or hinder the other player.[4][5] These Copy abilities include Kirby/Keeby turning into a tornado, a sparking ball that can destroy certain obstacles, and a UFO that allows Kirby/Keeby to float and move at will for a short time.[2]

The game has eight single-player courses, with eight holes in each.[4] Completing courses awards the player with medals, which can be used to unlock extra features such as alternative versions of courses. The type of medal awarded is based on how well the player performed, with gold being the best.[2]
