Product Description

Product Description

Peacefully sleeping in his Dream Land, Kirby drifts lazily amongst the beauty of the sky. A beauty that King Dedede cannot abide with. Jealous of the sky's wondrous splendor, King Dedede has acquired a tool that will let him steal the night's stars, plunging the world into eternal drab daylight. When Kirby awoke, he found that it was still daytime. And evermore, it would be daytime, unless Kirby made the journey to find King Dedede and recover the stars to restore the night's sky. So begins the latest Kirby adventure, another action adventure with the morphing marshmallow in a starnge fantasy world. However, the one thing separating this latest adventure is the control scheme. Here, you don't control Kirby directly. Instead, you guide Kirby by tipping your system to roll the little round pink puff through a series of mazes. If you get in a jam you can make Kirby jump by a controller press, and Kirby can still acquire weapons from other enemies, but the real skill is using the tilting to your advantage.

Long before bumpers and paddles were introduced, the original pinball tables required players to steer their pinballs down the slope by tilting, or moving, the games' cases. A little less than fourscore years later, Nintendo has brought a high-tech version of that technique to your Game Boy Color. Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble has a built-in tilt sensor that detects your unit's orientation to move Kirby up, down, left, or right--thus saving your left thumb at least a little wear and tear. The object of the game is to get Kirby to tuck and roll through eight territories in search of Dreamland's stolen stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good clean fun. April 15, 2001
By A Customer
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble is very fun and the new 'tilt' feature is very neat. It is easy to master and this game is great to play. It is a classic game- defeat 'baddies' and finish the level. The color is superior. There are five mini- games. All are pretty fun. This is a cute game and will provide endless enjoyment with over 30 levels, this will not become boring anytime soon. It is probably my favorite game- and I haven't even had it for a day yet. I would recommend this game to anyone who (a) likes Kirby (b) wants to try the tilt feature, or (c) wants a fun challenge without violence. This game proves you can have a great game without violene. This will easily become a million seller. You should get this game. I know I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The kids might not like it... April 13, 2001
This is a pretty hard game to get used to. It might frustrate young gamers. It also cause some pain in the neck and wrists if you play for an extended period of time. It's tough to get enough light onto the screen. I've had the best luck playing by window light or under a chandelier. It's tricky to play on a plane or bus trip, though.
You control kirby by tilting the system and moving him though pinball-like mazes. Sound ho-hum, but it's anything but. The thing is, the tilt features works like a charm, and once you get used to it, you've got total control and it's just a blast to play. The mazes are fiendishly designed to test your skills. There are bosses, mini-games and bonus levels. What more could you want? Well, I was a little disapointed by the fact that you never get a chance to use kirby's ability-stealing power (like in his previous adventures)but, I guess it's a different sort of game. Definitely one of the best GBC games ever, with great graphics, innovative control and challenging level designs. I dig the pink cartridge, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars one word- fun April 28, 2001
By Arnoldo
I had read about the game, and decided to get it. The game is great, grab the GBC and prepare for what games are supposed to be--pure and simple fun. The tilt sensor is VERY acurate, a small inclination will make kirby move slowly, a steep one... well you get the idea. to jump you flick the GBC up and watch kirby go. The mini game are real fun. I specially like "Kirby's chicken race" kirby get's on a car, and you have to shake the GBC for a small amount of time to acumulate power and then kirby rushes to a cliff, if you shake the GBC too much, you fall, and you have to get as near the edge as possible. Well, this is enough, get the game, and if you feel bothered when people watch you shake, jump and move around with your GBC, play it in your room, alone. Believe me, you won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I leaned the hard way January 3, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a really fun game, and the graphics and sound are great... only problem is that is is not GBA SP compatible (I don't know about regular GBA). It loads fine and looks good, but because it works on a motion sensor chip, and GBC cards point down, and GBA SP cards point up, up is down and down is up, and right is left and left is right. You COULD learn to compensate for this, but what a pain!

If, though, GBA regular loads cards the way GBC does, it should make a great addition to your collection. If you have GBA SP, and no GBC, I can't recommend it. Of course, you can get a GBC for $10. at GameStop, if you really want to play this particular game. It is a pretty nifty game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Kirby Tilt n' Tumble May 9, 2001
This game is really fun it will appeal to people of all age groups especially those who own all three of the previous kirby gaames like me.The new tilt feature is really cool and really makes the game so much more interesting,the graphics of the enemies are good and the sound is of an okay quality.If there is a major flaw it's in the gameboy colour itself,rather than the game for having a screen that need's lots of sunlight.But all in all a very good game and a good price considering it costs less than many other tacky games out at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Game April 12, 2001
By A Customer
I just got this game today its cute. The tilt concept is interesting. Game boy games can be hard to see without good lighting and with this game having to be tilted and turned all the time makes it even harder to see without even more light. A worm light helps but it bounces around when you bounce the gameboy. If you like kirby and want something different this is a great game. The ice pink cardridge is also very cute

5.0 out of 5 stars Tilt & Tumble Technology = Cool! December 31, 2001
Kirby's Tilt & Tumble for Gameboy Color is a truly unique game. In addition to featuring everyone's favorite puffy pink hero, his home planet of Pop Star, and dozens of cuddly bad guys, Kirby's Tilt & Tumble features unique Tilt Technology, meaning instead of using the directional arrows to control Kirby, simply tilt your gameboy in the direction you want Kirby to roll. To jump, pop the gameboy up. This simplistic controlling makes it great for younger kids and adults alike. The game features eight territories to roll your way through, 3 save slots, and best of all, the cartridge is pink! hehehe...
There are only a few minor setbacks of this game- first of all, it requires steady hands, so it's difficult to play in a car or bus. Another problem is that when tilting the gameboy, screen glare can cause you to lose sight of Kirby, so I recommend using a Worm Light when playing. Another problem is that you must keep the gameboy flat, so you'll have to bend yourself in order to see the screen at times. If you like shoot-em-up fighting and action games, Kirby might be a little too pink and cuddly for your tastes. Nevertheless, it's still a great game, and I recommend adding it to your collection as soon as possible!
