Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land Kirby Mini-Game is a web game in the Kirby series. It was developed and published by Nintendo in 2002 as a promotion for Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It was a downloadable reward only accessible to members of Nintendo VIP 24:7, a Europe-exclusive loyalty program that was later rebranded as Club Nintendo.
This is a simple collecting game. The player moves Kirby left and right with the arrow keys in an effort to grab ten falling Maxim Tomatoes. Images of Kabu, Sir Slippy, Gip, Javelin Knight, and Phan Phan fall randomly as hazards--if one touches Kirby, it disappears and drains his health bar slightly. If he is hit by too many enemies, the game ends. Kirby can refill his energy by collecting falling Pep Brews and shield himself from enemies by touching a Parasol.
Each round becomes more frequent with enemy drops and gets more hectic overall. After clearing all three rounds, the player is provided a link to a PDF featuring Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land Copy Abilities. This can be printed and cut into a booklet.
