Kirby's Pinball Land
Reviewed by Diane Cote
Believe it or not, Kirby's Pinball Land is one of the best games available for
the Game Boy. It's not a traditional pinball game by any stretch of the
imagination. With silly looking characters representing bumpers, bells and
targets, the game looks unlike any pinball table you've ever seen before.
Kirby, everybody's favorite wannabe marshmallow, stars as the actual
pinball - how twisted is that?
There are a number of different levels in the game and each screen presents a
new series of challenges. Along with the straight ahead game, a whole bunch of
really cool secret bonus games are strewn throughout this pinball adventure.
It's a pure "high score" based challenge but because of the number of nifty twists
in the design, the game will keep you coming back for more (a-d-d-i-c-t-i-o-n,
learn to spell it!). There's even a save game feature which will let you pick up
your last game exactly where you left off.
As hard as you may try to ignore Kirby's Pinball Land, you should know it sports the
perfect blend of challenge and levity. Exactly what a good Game Boy title should offer.
I'm giving Kirby's Pinball Land 9.5 out of 10
