The Kirby series is a stack of whimsical, light-hearted, colorful (except for the first few games, some of which were monochrome), cheery, yet occasionally devilishly twisted at some point platforming adventure games, plus some non-platforming ones along the way (golf, pinball, racing). The star is Kirby, a pink, ball-like, and deceptively simple creature who delights in eating--which is also his superpower. Throughout the entire series, very few words are spoken or even written (unless you count the show!), but a reasonably-sized cast of characters with feeling is still present in the series. Just don't bother trying to make scientific sense of any landscapes you see in Kirby.
