This golf-inspired game pitted one to two players against eight outlandish courses. To complete a hole, players had to defeat every enemy on the field and drop ball-shaped Kirby into the cup. Fewer shots meant a higher score. On top of planning each shot's power and trajectory, players had to make smart use of Kirby's 10 Copy Abilities.
— Summary • Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition

Kirby's Dream Course, known in Japan as カービィボウル (Kābī Bōru, meaning Kirby Bowl), is a video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was the very first 3D Kirby game. It is a golf style game with power ups. There are eight courses in the game and each one has eight holes. The game has a scoring system which awards Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for each level. There are unlockables in the game once a player gets enough medals. The player eventually meets a robotic version of King Dedede at the top.

Gameplay

The player uses Kirby as a ball. Kirby must hit enemies on the course and the last enemy becomes a hole which must then be sunk into. There is a health meter represented by Tomatoes. Tomatoes are gained by sinking the ball and hitting characters. They are lost when Kirby hits spikes. Powerups can be gained by hitting certain enemies. These include Freeze, UFO, Hi-Jump, and Stone. There is a video tutorial system in the game which explains 20 techniques.

Trivia

  • This game contains many sound effects from EarthBound/MOTHER2 as both games were being developed side by side.
  • Kirby's Dream Course was supposed to be a non-Kirby game called Special Tee Shot. Remnants from when it was supposed to be Special Tee Shot can be found hidden in the Japanese version of the game.[3] Special Tee Shot was eventually released in 1998 in Japan exclusively on the Satellaview.
  • This was the first game in the Kirby series to have any kind of rating. The ESRB rating scale didn't exist when the first three games were released.
