Kirby's Dream Course (SNES)
Castles Of Cake, Jigsaw Plains, Cloudy Mountain Peaks, Ride To The Sky
Kirby's Dream Course is a golf game set in the Kirby world that released on the SNES in 1994 and 1995. Although the game is 2D, it is the first Kirby game with 3D gameplay and physics, setting itself apart for more reasons than one.
Castles Of Cake
Kirby's Dream Course features a soundtrack that is all too pleasant and colourful. There are many of the familiar Kirby sounds found throughout the soundtrack and this almost minimalistic track has just enough Kirby charm to lure you into the games wonderful world.
This track is extremely upbeat and takes some minor inspiration from the track Float Islands from Kirby's Dreamland for the Game Boy. It's staccato like bass-percussion is the songs immediately noticeable feature.
Cloudy Mountain Peaks
The tracks bass, toy piano-like instrument and various other instruments melt together to make a very interesting track that always feels enjoyable to listen to from moment to moment.
Ride To The Sky
This theme begins with some very enchanting tapping. It sets itself apart very well with this, and creates a very floaty and angelic feel.
