The following instruction manual is for the Game Boy video game, Kirby's Pinball Land.

StoryEdit

Kirby, your pudgy buddy from Dream Land, is back again on Game Boy! This time the game is Pinball, and Kirby will have to face King Dedede and his bosses who guard the three Pinball Lands. In order to defeat King Dedede and his three bosses, Kirby becomes a pinball. This allows him to fight effectively in the Pinball Lands -- each a magical land with all kinds of tricks and bonuses! How high can you score? Can Kirby defeat King Dedede again? Let's find out! Okay Kirby, turn into a pinball and get ready for a wacky pinball battle!

Controlling the GameEdit

  • Pressing Left on the + Control Pad operates the left flipper.
  • Pressing the + Control Pad upwards or pressing the B Button shakes the pinball machine.
  • The A Button operates the right flipper.
  • You can see the Top Scores List by pressing the A or B Button on the title screen.
  • The Select button is used to save your game in the Game Pak's battery-backed memory.
  • The Start button is used to start the game and to pause a game. When you press this button during a game, the game will pause. To unpause, press the START Button again.

Special ControlsEdit

In addition to the above controls, the A Button is used to activate the Springboard and to choose which direction to shoot the ball out of a Roulette Hole. If you press the A, B, START and SELECT Buttons simultaneously during play, the game will reset back to the title screen.

Let's Get StartedEdit

Correctly insert the Kirby's Pinball Land Game Pak into the Game Boy unit and turn the power switch to the "ON" position. You will see the "Nintendo" logo appear for a few seconds before the title screen appears. When the title screen appears, press the START Button to begin playing.

How to PlayEdit

You start with three Kirbys (or three pinballs). Try not to let Kirby drain between the flippers at the bottom of the playfield! Use the flippers to keep Kirby in play and rack up more points!

Game LayoutEdit

There are three pinball machines (Pinball Lands) for you to master, each divided into three stages. After sucessfully passing through the top stage of each pinball machine you come face to face with the boss of that particular Pinball Land. After defeating all three bosses you finally confront King Dedede himself!

When you start the game, you can choose which pinball land you want to go to by hitting the appropriate shooting star. You can do this by using the flippers or by using the cannon at the bottom of the screen. To shoot the cannon, use the A Button.

Level 1: Whispy Woods LandEdit

Outlane stoppers are activated by passing over a Rollover Switch. This helps to prevent Kirby from rolling out of play. Be careful! The outlane stoppers will only last for a short period of time!

Top FloorEdit

Maxim Tomatos and other items appear next to Slippy at the top of the stage. You need to hit a warp star to reach the boss of this land. To make the warp star appear, destroy all three of the Cappies.

Middle FloorEdit

If Kirby passes through the Slot Lane, the Slot Machine will spin. If you hit the Dancing Kirby, only the picture with an arrow above it will spin. Payoffs: Kirby, Kirby, Kirby: If you shoot Pinball Kirby over the Dancing Kirby, he will be shot up to the Top Stage.

  • Star, Star, Star: Sends out a Warp Star that can take you to a bonus game.
  • Tomato, Tomato, Tomato: A Maxim Tomato will appear which can activate the Drain Stopper.
  • Baddie, Baddie, Baddie: You don't want this. It makes Drain Stoppers disappear!

Bottom FloorEdit

  • Once you've destroyed all six Kaboos, the Big Kaboo will disappear, and the Roulette Hole will appear. When the pinball enters the Roulette Hole, the arrows begin to light up. Press the A Button to select the direction in which you want the ball to be thrown.
  • When Pinball Kirby passes over the Kirby Triplets, the pictures of Kirby change. Line up three rotund, happy Kirbys and Stoppers will appear. Line up three deflated Kirbys and OOPS! The Stoppers will disappear!
  • Each time the pinball hits the Mummy Ball, one of the letters in the words "WARP STAR" light up. When all of the letters have been illuminated, the star which will zip you to the Warp Screen will become visible.

Level 2: Kracko LandEdit

Outlane stoppers are activated by passing over a Rollover Switch. This helps to prevent Kirby from rolling out of play. Be careful! The outlane stoppers will only last for a short period of time!

Top FloorEdit

  • When Kirby hits Mr. Bright (the sun) three times, day turns into night, and Mr. Shine (the moon) and stars come out.
  • When Kirby Mr. Shine three times a Warp Star appears. The Warp Star will take you to the boss.
  • If Kirby hits Chicky three times, our good buddy Chucky turns into a Maxim Tomato!

Middle FloorEdit

  • When Kirby hits the Clouds on either side of the pinball machine, various items come into play such as Maxim Tomatoes, which activate the Stoppers, and Warp Stars, which send you to a Bonus Game.
  • If Pinball Kirby hits Nimbus three times, it will start to rain and the Big Kirby will open his umbrella. If you land the pinball on top of the umbrella, you will be sent to the Top Stage of the Pinball machine.

Bottom FloorEdit

  • Each time Kirby hits the Bumpin' Boo on the left side of the machine, a letter in the word "WARP" will light up. When the pinball hits the Bumpin' Boo on the right, a letter in the word "STAR" will light up. When all the letters have been illuminated, a Warp Star appears.
  • Each time Kirby hits Scarfy, a letter in the word "SCARFY" lights up. When all the letters have been illuminated, Scarfy splits into three Scarfys! If Kirby hits the top Scarfy, this Scarfy is replaced by the pinball, which is then bumped up into the Middle Stage by the other two Scarfys.

Level 3: Poppy Brothers' LandEdit

Outlane stoppers are activated by passing over a Rollover Switch. This helps to prevent Kirby from rolling out of play. Be careful! The outlane stoppers will only last for a short period of time!

Top FloorEdit

  • Each time Kirby hits an egg it cracks, and finally becomes a chick. (If one of the Juinor Poppy Brothers touches an egg, it will return to its original state.) When all three eggs become chicks, they set out to find such items as Maxim Tomatoes and Warp Stars (that take you to the boss!).
  • If Kirby hits Cluck three times, Cluck turns into a Maxim Tomato.

Middle FloorEdit

  • When Pinball Kirby hits the Stuffed Kirby, he will exhale whatever he's thinking about and put it on the plate. When the pinball hits the Hungry Kirby, he will inhale whatever is on the plate.
  • If Kirby hits a Maxim Tomato that the Stuffed Kirby exhales, the Stoppers will appear.
  • If Kirby hits one of the Warp Stars that the Stuffed Kirby exhales, you'll go to a bonus game.
  • If the pinball hits one of the Squishy Squids that the Stuffed Kirby exhales, you'll be thrown to the top stage.

Bottom FloorEdit

  • Each time Kirby hits Chilly, one of the letters in the words "WARP STAR" lights up. When all of the letters have been illuminated, the Warp Star is activated.
  • Each time the pinball hits Mr. Frosty, one of the letters in the word "FROSTY" lights up. When the word has been completely illuminated, Mr. Frosty can catch Kirby and start to spin. Using the A Button, stop Mr. Frosty's spin and shoot Kirby in the desired direction.

The Bad GuysEdit

Whispy-WoodsEdit

Try to make Kirby hit Whispy-Woods in the face. If you don't panic, you shouldn't have too much trouble.

KrackoEdit

Extremely quick, Kracko's spinning attack can knock Kirby for a loop! Look Out!!

Poppy BrothersEdit

After attacking several time, Poppy splits into two Poppies! Watch for simultaneous bomb attacks!

Caution! If one of the Bosses' attacks hits one of the flippers, it will be immobilized and will not work for a brief period of time! Be careful! If you make a mistake and let Kirby drain while fighting one of the Bosses, you will be thrown back to the Top Stage of that Pinball Land!

The Springboard (A Second Chance!)Edit

If Kirby drains off the Bottom Stage of a machine, he falls to the Springboard. By pushing the A Button when the Springboard drops down to its lowest position, Kirby can jump back up to the bottom stage of that Pinball Land. If your timing is just right, Kirby can jump up to the middle or even to the Top Stage of the pinball machine! Kirby can wear out the Springboards if he uses them too often during one life. The bigger a Springboard is, the easier it will be to jump off of it.

Extra KirbysEdit

After defeating a Boss and moving back to the Stage Warp screen, a ball with the letters E-X-T-R-A flashing on it appears, replacing the Warp Star that was previously there. Each time Kirby hits the ball, the displayed letter is lit. If you can spell EXTRA, you'll get an extra Kirby!

Scoring and Screen DisplaysEdit

  • Bonus points [+B] and Bonus Multipliers [+M] can be earned in various places in the game. Whenever a Kirby is lost, the bonus points will be added to your score.
  • If you get one of the top 4 scores, you can enter your name on the Top Scores list. Enter your name using the + Control Pad and the A Button. Use the B Button if you make a mistake. Up to seven letters can be entered. From the Title Screen, press the A or B Button to go to the Top Scores list. If you want to erase the Top 4 Scores, press START, SELECT, and Down on the + Control Pad on this screen.

Bonus Games (How to Rack Up Points!)Edit

In the middle stage of each pinball machine, you can access a Bonus Game by hitting a warp star. Each bonus game has excellent ways to add substantially to your score and increase your bonus. Each bonus game has a time limit. During this time, any Kirby that goes between the flippers will be shot back into the playfield.

The Whispy-Woods Bonus GameEdit

Blocks are arranged in three rows at the top of the screen. Hit as many blocks as you can.

The Kracko Land Bonus GameEdit

Hit the items up to the Kirby at the top of the screen so he can inhale them for some serious points!
