Don't let the cute graphics and young-ish theme deter you. Kirby's Pinball Land is just as much fun - and as challenging - as any of the top Game Boy titles.
Electric Playground
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.

The popular pudgy hero stars in a solid little pinball game, with three different tables and enough bonus stages to keep you busy.
Né en 1992, Kirby s'est très vite évadé du jeu de plates-formes, explorant le jeu arcade sous plusieurs formes (courses, flipper, casse-briques, etc …). Ainsi, un an après sa première apparition dans Dream Land, le petit guerrier de l'espace est venu s'aventurer sur les tables de flipper. Le résultat est un jeu d'arcade sur console portable très addictif, dans lequel Sakurai a parfaitement su transposer l'univers qu'il avait créé dans le premier opus de la série.

Seit dem legendären Revenge Of The Gator vom selben Entwicklungsteam (HAL) haben ich mich mit keinem Game-Boy-Flipper mehr so köstlich amüsiert, wie mit Kirby's Pinball Land. Daß auf Scrolling verzichtet wurde, macht den Flipper nur noch besser. Andere Game-Boy-Pinballs protzen mit toller Geschwindigkeit und superfixem Scrolling – und was habt Ihr davon? Man erkennt nichts mehr. In Kirby's Pinball Land ist alles groß, gut zu erkennen, süß gezeichnet und witzig animiert. Die Tische sind exzellent durchdacht und haben den richtigen Schwierigkeitsgrad. Mit der eingebauten Batterie ist das Modul optimal für den kurzweiligen Flipperspaß unterwegs. Endlich ein Flipper, der auch die High-Scores speichert!

Kirby's Pinball Land is een flipperspel dat de beperkte mogelijkheden van de Game Boy nu eens maximaal benut. Er is niet veel op het scherm gepropt en de graphics zijn groot, waardoor het zeer overzichtelijk is. Een originele en leuke game.
This is what pinball should be. The ball movement is smooth and true. Gameplay is consistently involving and just plain fun. We are fortunate to enjoy several great pinball titles on the Game Boy, with more on the way. But if you haven't played pinball Kirby style, have you really played pinball?
Kirby's Pinball Land is a great choice for pinball fans, hungry for more on a system that somewhat lacks in the genre. It'd be a great title to buy used, and unfortunately, that's the only way you might find this game.

This is one of the better pinball games for any system. Kirby's Pinball Land takes one of the cutest video game characters and implemented it in a very good pinball version. I like the three different pinball boards and that you can travel from board to board during the game. Each level has cool animations, but it's kind of hard to appreciate them when there's so much blurring on the screen. It's great, otherwise!
