From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Bomb Rally is one of the Sub-Games featured in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. Like the other sub-games, Bomb Rally has multiplayer support with up to four players.
Kirby faces off against three other Kirbys in an explosive tennis-style rally. Each Kirby must use their frying pan to pass around the bomb to the next Kirby. the player can have Kirby pass the bomb by pressing the A button with proper timing, as it heads his way. If a Kirby unsuccessfully hits the bomb, he is blown out of the screen and replaced with a Bubbles, who then serves the bomb to a nearby Kirby. As the sub-game progress, the bomb moves faster between the Kirbys. Bubbles are incapable of missing the bombs. The last Kirby standing wins at the sub-game.
Kirby can play Bomb Rally from an unlockable door in every level's hub, except Butter Building, in exchange for 1-Up rewards. The number of 1-Ups that Kirby obtains is based on his performance: three in first place, two in second place, or one in third place. If Kirby is the first to be blown out, he does not receive any.
There are three levels of difficulty for this Sub-Game, with each increment increasing the CPU reaction time.
