You are Kirby, your everyday inflatable pink blob, and you have to traverse across 2-D environments jumping over obstacles and defeating enemies. Using Kirby's unique sucking mechanic, you can suck up enemies and shoot them out in a star burst or swallow them and take over their power. These powers range greatly from giving Kirby a parasol for glide down with to having beams of plasma snaking around him.
Kirby: Nightmare in Dream land plays like other games in the series. Kirby scrolls across the screen to point A to point B. In each lever there are hidden treasure chests and other secrets that unlock extra rooms in the hub worlds. The game has 7 worlds that all contain 6 rooms, a boss and other unlockable rooms including warps, rooms with power ups, small boss fights and sub-games.
The sub-games, which are selectable in the main menu and in the hub world are simple games that can be played in multiplayer.
A game where you press the A button at the perfect time to kill an enemy.
