2023/02: Kirby's Return To Dream Land (Wii) - G.E.R.
« on: January 31, 2023, 09:45:33 pm »

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to G.E.R.'s Kirby's Return To Dream Land (Wii) maps.

Planet Popstar seems to have its fair share of visitors.  This time, it's Magalor, an alien whose dimension-hopping spaceship has crash-landed.  Kirby offers to help fix Magalor's ship, so along with King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Waddle Dee, they set off to recover all of the parts and energy spheres that are now scattered across the planet.

This adventure takes Kirby and his friends across Popstar and then Halcandra, through seven worlds named with alliterative titles (where the first letters appear to spell out a word).  Besides 38 stages of platforming fun, there are also seven challenges based around specific Copy Abilities, the boss rush area known as "The Arena", and a couple of mini-games.  It definitely follows the classic formula for a Kirby platforming adventure - but that's not a bad thing.  It plays great and looks just as good.

Though for something different, Kirby's Epic Yarn was released a year earlier on the Wii, and G.E.R. has recently mapped all of that, as well.  G.E.R. has actually mapped numerous Kirby games, and we appreciate that this love for the series brings us so many beautiful and colourful Kirby game maps, including these ones!

So to recognize the effort put into mapping a gorgeous Kirby adventure worth returning to, G.E.R.'s Kirby's Return To Dream Land (Wii) maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps Of The Month for February 2023.
