The game is a single and multiplayer. In the single player, the player guides Kirby alone by using either a gamepad or the touchscreen controls on Zen Mobile.
Multiplayer has the other players play as Bandanna Dees.
Just like in older installments, you can swallow enemies to get their abilities.
The plot is identical to the one shown in Kirby's Adventure. In the beginning of the game Kirby awakes to find that all of the citizens of Dream Land have lost the ability to dream. Before this event occurred, dreams were composed through the Dream Spring and through the Star Rod. Kirby visited the location and found the antagonistic King Dedede swimming in the spring's waters. Kirby eventually found that the Star Rod had been broken by King Dedede, and that he had handed it over to all of his equally evil friends. So, it was Kirby's obligation to seek the lost pieces of the Star Rod by fighting Dedede's evil friends.
The same worlds from Kirby's Adventure reappear, and some unused levels finally make their way into the game.

As of today (18 of June, 2016), all games for Zen OS are Kirby games.
Originally, the game had 3D models! But as the game was becoming more like Kirby's Adventure, sprites replaced the models.
However, a Kirby model is still in the games files! You can see it below:
