Flashback: Kirby's Dream Course (SNES) January 1, 1995 & Kirby's Avalanche

26 years ago today on January 1, 1995, Kirby's Dream Course and Kirby's Avalanche were released on the SNES in the USA and Canada.  While not my favorite Kirby game by a long stretch, Kirby's Dream Course was an interesting take on miniature golf. As a 2D scrolling arcade style golf game, it still holds up pretty good even more than two and a half decades later.  Kirby's Avalanche is far less memorable to me and not really worth playing today. It was in essence a knockoff of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Puyo Puyo. The result was just a generic colored blob puzzler with a Kirby paint job.  If you don't have a SNES laying around to play on,  Kirby's Dream Course was also released on the Wii, 3DS, Nintendo Switch and Wii U. Kirby's Avalanche ended up on the Nintendo Wii as well.
