KA-Rando

Kirby's Adventure Randomizer

Randomize levels, character colors, and enemy abilities for Kirby's Adventure on NES.

Written by Austin Bricker, 2017-2020

-- Overview --

Randomizes the level order, enemy abilities, and Kirby's color in Kirby's Adventure. The main functionality is a web interface which is meant to be used with a US version of Kirby's Adventure for NES. As of Version 3.0.3, only the original release of the game (PRG0) is supported.

-- Features --

  • Randomize the levels! You can now randomize the level order, so each level door you go through will take you to an unexpected level!
    • Note, boss doors and a handful of the regular levels (the ones with warp stars) are not randomized as of yet.
  • Randomize enemy abilities! Enemies will give you different abilities than the vanilla game when eaten.
  • Change your color! Choose between a few presets I've designed, or pick any color that the NES has to offer!

-- Usage --

All you need is a US copy of the original version of the Kirby's Adventure ROM (which is left to the user to obtain). Then, visit https://aquova.net/KA-Rando, choose the options you desire, select your file, and press 'Randomize'.

-- Running Locally --

This project runs entirely in the client, so if you need to use the randomizer off-line, you can simply download and visit the webpage in a browser. To do so, either click Clone or download on the GitHub page and download the zip file, or in a Terminal run git clone https://github.com/aquova/KA-Rando. Once downloaded, simply open index.html in a browser of your choice!

-- Known Issues --

  • Dying with Star Rod disables select button until level completion
  • All six levels with in-level Warp Stars are not randomized, due to game-breaking bugs occurring.
  • Museum enemies are not randomized
