Let's Get Started

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 Play

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 Layout

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.

only last for a short period of time!

-Top Floor
* Each time Kirby hits an egg it cracks, and finally becomes a chick. (If one of

The Bad Guys

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

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

Poppy Brothers
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!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 16

The Springboard (A Second Chance!)

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 Kirbys
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 Displays

the game. Whenever a Kirby is lost, the bonus points will be added to your

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

Bonus Games (How to Rack Up Points!)
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 Wispy-Woods Bonus Game
Blocks are arranged in three rows at the top of the screen. Hit as many blocks
as you can.

-The Kracko Land Bonus Game
Hit the items up to the Kirby at the top of the screen so he can inhale them for
some serious points!

-The Poppy Brothers' Land Bonus Game
It is every Kirby's dream to play soccer with a squid. Score as many goals as
you can. The more goals you make, the more each goal is worth!
