16. Kirby’s Dream Course (1994)
Kirby’s Dream Course is a Nintendo take on crazy golf, featuring an isometric grid/viewpoint, the player will attempt to shoot poor old Kirby around the course, negotiating various traps and 3D geometry, deposit Kirby in the hole and you’re off to the next course.
It sounds incredibly simplistic, and it really is. However the challenge becomes technical as you go along, with players needing to learn how to angle and power their shots appropriately, as well as lot of Power Ups that Kirby can obtain along the way to aid in his quest. The game also sells with a fun 2-player mode that will greatly extend the shelf-life of the game beyond your initial play-through.
With direct involvement in production coming from Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto himself, you can be sure of very whacky and innovative experiences in this Marble Madness meets Mario Golf genre mashup.
