Nintendo wants to be my Valentine this week. He’s not Cupid, but Pit will have to suffice: Kid Icarus is out for the Virtual Console! As if that wasn’t enough, we get Ice Climber and Kirby’s Adventure, too! [Each title costs 500 points.]
Kirby’s Adventureâ„¢ (NES): Not everything is well in Dream Land. For some mysterious reason, the Dream Spring, a magical well that is the reservoir for all the dreams of the citizens of Dream Land, is no longer working. Everyone is being subjected to their worst nightmares every time they go to sleep. Upon reaching the Dream Spring, Kirby finds out that evil King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod, thus depriving Dream Land of the magical energy that feeds its spring.
Ice Climberâ„¢ (NES): As Popo, players use a trusty mallet to work their way up the mountain. They chip away at the blocks overhead, then jump up through the resulting hole to the mountain’s next level.
Kid Icarusâ„¢ (NES): In a time when men and gods lived in harmony, the kingdom of Angel Land was ruled by two goddesses: Palutena, the Goddess of Light, and Medusa, the Goddess of Darkness. Unlike Palutena, Medusa despised all humans and enjoyed destroying their crops and turning them into stone. One day, Palutena decided to punish the evil Medusa and banished her after turning her into a hideous monster. But Medusa would not go without a fight. She created an army of monsters and evil spirits and captured Palutena. Players play as Pit, a young angel trapped in the Underworld, and Palutena’s only hope.
I’m definitely getting Kirby. Which game are you buying yourself for Valentine’s Day?
