I am going to play through every game in the Kirby's Dream Collection without flying. At least, that was the idea. But as I started playing Kirby's Dream Land, I realized that this would technically be impossible. Why? Because there are some parts of the game that force you to fly. It was then that I decided "fly" would only be used as a super jump, and to add an extra layer of difficulty I would ignore any healing items.
So far, I've only tried this with Kirby's Dream Land, but I plan to play through the others soon enough. What follows is my 2-part, profanity-packed, rage-filled journey through the flightless world of Kirby's Dream Land. After playing this way, I will never again agree with someone who claims all Kirby games are "easy." And if you want to experience Kirby in a new way, I recommend trying this out for yourselves.
