When the stars are missing from Dreamland, Kirby is the fellow to call. The cute little pink hero has saved the day more than once in the past and his unique talents are needed once again in this colorful, portable release. This time around, it is Kirby's spherical nature that makes him particularly well suited for the job, as this cartridge will turn the Game Boy Color into a marble-rolling "puzzle box" that the player controls by actually tilting and shaking the handheld itself.
A special device in the cartridge allows the unit to sense the motion of the handheld and Kirby, tucked into a ball shape, rolls back and forth as the Game Boy Color is tilted to one side or the other. Graduated control causes the little pink pinball roll faster or more slowly according on the degree of the tilt. He'll even bounce up when the handheld is lifted with a quick jerk. As Kirby rolls through this adventure, boards become more complex and challenging, featuring bouncy bumpers, sharp spikes, and hidden power-ups. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
