Kirby's Pinball Land is a game released on the Game Boy in late 1993. It is a pinball game, with Kirby substituting as the pinball. It is the first spinoff title of the Kirby series and the first game that acknowledges Kirby being in the shape of a ball.

The game consists of three pinball tables (titled Pinball Lands) that are themed around elements and environments from Kirby's Dream Land, each with three floors and a boss floor. Each table also has a minigame on the second floor. Apart from containing elements from its direct predecessor, Kirby's Dream Land, the game also recycles many of its graphics.


  • The first stage with Whispy Woods features a Breakout-style mini-game where enemies and items move along the top of a series of breakable blocks. This would appear to serve as a precursor to Kirby's Block Ball.
  • The second stage with Poppy Bros. Sr. features a game where Kirby has to punt himself into a goal on a soccer-themed course with a Squishy acting as the goalie.
  • The third stage with Kracko features a game where Kirby has to bounce food items up to a copy of himself on a cloud deck who will eat them for points.
