Kirby's Dream Land is the first and most well-known game of the Kirby series. It was designed by Masahiro Sakurai to be deliberately easy in order to be accessible for beginners and established the basics of the Kirby series. Originally, Kirby wasn't going to be the star of the game. A character named Popopo was the original hero, but the developers grew to like Kirby, so the game starred him instead.
Kirby travels through the various levels in which he confronts a variety of enemies. Each level has a mini-boss halfway through and a boss at the end. Kirby has the ability to walk, jump, fly, swim, and inhale enemies. Kirby is also to exhale a puff of air that will damage any enemy it hits.
Kirby's Dream Land was the first Kirby game and set most of the series's gameplay precedents. Along with introducing Kirby , it also introduced many returning enemies such as King Dedede, Waddle Dee, and Whispy Woods.
