There's trouble in Dream Land! The self-appointed King Dedede has stolen all of his subjects' food for a midnight feast. Kirby, a resident of Dream Land, bravely sets out to stop the gluttonous penguin and recover the food.
This first game in the Kirby series predates Kirby's ability to absorb enemy powers. He goes on to gain that ability in the second game in the series.
This run takes more real-time than the previous publication due to improvements in emulator accuracy; the gameplay difference is a roughly 2 second improvement. This run also uses the 'Extra Game' password (up+select+A at title screen), which makes the enemies and bosses much more aggressive and damaging than usual.
Watch this run being played back on a real console.
