Kirby's Block Ball is a game in the Kirby series released for the Game Boy in 1995. It is a clone of the arcade game Breakout (or, by extension, Arkanoid), but features gameplay elements and an overall theme based on the Kirby platformers, notable additions to the classic Breakout gameplay being the ability to destroy enemies and copy their powers, as well as the possibility of simultaneously controlling multiple paddles in certain stages.

Like many other Game Boy games of its time, Kirby's Block Ball comes with pre-defined color palettes and a custom border when played using the Super Game Boy adapter.


"Kirby's back with fast-paced, four-way action!

It's a breakaway bash in this wild new Kirby game of Block Ball! By destroying the blocks on the screen, you clear stages and obtain powers that help in your final confrontation with King Dedede.

Paddles on all four sides of the screen make this an instense four-way action contest. Your quick reactions, and your careful use of Kirby's powers will determine your ultimate fate!"
