Nintendo's done it again. Kirby's Block Ball is a winner. I didn't find it quite as enjoyable as Kirby's Pinball Land but it definitely fit all the criteria for a solid portable entertainment. With eleven different levels each with five separate rounds, as well as four bonus games, Kirby's Block Ball should keep gamers on the go, smiling for a good long time. You know, for a fat little pudge who goes through life bouncing around, Kirby sure has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.

Für Freunde des Genres und Reiselustige, die etwas Zerstreuung suchen, ist dieses Game ideal. Gameplay und Dauerspaß versprechen echte Kurzweil. Einen Wermutstropfen gibt’s allerdings auch: Paßwörter oder ähnliches wurden ausgespart.

En conclusion, Kirby's Block Ball change le genre de la série mais en reprend parfaitement l'univers. Ce dernier bénéficie d'un gameplay plaisant, associé à des graphismes et à une bande-son excellents. La durée de vie est plus que correcte et nul doute que vous reviendrez sur ce casse-briques pour essayer de battre encore et toujours vos meilleurs scores.

For all of you who are huge fans of the ancient arcade version, a purchase would be recommended. For others who can look past the “Kirby” franchise, forget this one, as it’s just an average game.
