Kirby’s Adventure (NES)
Vegetable Valley 1, Orange Ocean 1, Grape Garden
Kirby’s Adventure was the second game released in the series and was the first to feature Kirby’s trademarked pink colour. The game features some music found in Kirby’s Dream Land, the first game in the series which was released for the Game Boy, but for the most part, it contains completely new music that takes full advantage of the NES sound capabilities.
Vegetable Valley 1
The first track to Vegetable Valley features the upbeat quirkiness that the series has since come to be known for. It has an airy nature to it and the song is a great example of the uniqueness to the music found in the Kirby series.
Orange Ocean 1
The track instantly has a very samba sound to it thanks to its noticeable rhythm. The instrument and melody heard at around the twenty-five-second mark is very characteristic of the Kirby series, and this sort of free-flowing sound helps accentuate Kirby’s unique abilities.
The theme to Grape Garden is composed in a 3/4 time signature and thus has a Waltz feel to it. The track is similar to another song found in Kirby’s Dreamland titled Castle, which also features a 3/4 time signature.
