BLOCKBALL BLOOPER!

Did you know?
In the instruction booklet that comes with the game, it shows pictures
of Waddle Doo and Sir Pengy on Page 17? It lists them as Characters in
the game... but kinda strange since those enemies don't even appear in
the game! In addition, the Propeller in the picture is shown as being
angry - something it never does in the game.

Maybe the booklet was rushed to be printed and cut and pasted from other
Kirby pics?

See a picture of them in the booklet here!

             that will be covered with them. Once the star block is hit by

****************************************************************************
7. Level Guide
****************************************************************************

While playing, you'll find this information on your screen:

Remaining # of balls - At the beginning of each stage, you have four balls in
your inventory. If this number reaches zero, the game is over. When a stage is
completed, each remaining ball is worth 1000 points.

Number of star blocks - This indicates the number of Star Blocks aquired in
the stage. Star Blocks cover spikes in the Boss Area only. When a Star Block is
hit it disappears.

Ability Window - This window displays the status of Kirby's current ability

Normal          Spark           Burn            Needle          Stone

Score - The score in a stage begins at zero, and is tallied here. The first
through fourth highest ranking scores in each stage will be saved (see page 18).

Gutter - If you hit a spike, the ball is lost

Paddle - Move the paddle to bounce the ball back into the playing screen. The
paddle becomes bigger when the A Button is pressed.

Cursor - Use the cursor to select the direction the ball will be launched.

Stage # - The current stage number and round is displayed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each stage is split into five levels: (Except Level 11)

Levels 1-3 = Block Area
-----------------------
Here you just hit the blocks, get points to meet the borderline, go to bonus
levels, complete bonus rounds and get abilities.

Level 4 = Target shooting Area
------------------------------
Here you just try and grab all the star blocks and knock out the
Warpstar guardian of the stage. Once you hit the guardian, a warpstar will
appear to take you to the boss.

Level 5 = Boss Area
-------------------
Here you battle the final boss of the stage and advance to the next.

Notes: - Kirby's Blockball is really just a game of skill. There are no
         definite strategies to make you a better player - all I can offer
         are some tips, what to expect and other tips.
       - As you are playing the stages, there are three status types of
         your level on the world map. A circle means you have not played
         the stage yet, a star means you have completed it and a flag
         means you have cleared the borderline.
       - Each stage has a borderline to meet - this is a score set for you
         to beat in order to complete the stage 100%
       - Level 11 is only accessible AFTER you get all the other 10 stages'
         borderlines.

****************************************************************************
8. Boss Guide
****************************************************************************

In General, the bosses of Blockball for surprisingly easy. All you can
really do is go for them!

-------------------------------------------
Stage 1 Boss - Cappy
-------------------------------------------
Cappy is the first boss, and he's not too hard. He'll hide under his mushroom
cap and try attacking your paddles. Just hit him and he'll soon throw off
the cap and call on some smaller cappys to shield him. Knock out the small
cappys, and knock him out.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 2 Boss - Squishy
-------------------------------------------
Squishy doesn't have any real threatening attacks, except if he can, he'll
catch your ball if you hit him below and try throwing it at the spikes.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 3 Boss - Kabu
-------------------------------------------
Kabu isn't too hard, it's just his smaller kabus you have to watch out for.
You have so long to try and beat him, before six kabus will come, launching
themselves in every direction. They will keep re-appearing until you knock
this boss out.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 4 Boss - Poppy Brother Senior
-------------------------------------------
The only disadvantage you have is the platforms blocking your aim from Poppy.
Just try to focus on getting it to where the top paddle (and the sides) do
most of the work. He'll throw bombs trying to immobilize your paddles, but
otherwise his days are numbered.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 5 Boss - Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright
-------------------------------------------
It starts with Mr. Shine, who you have to try and hit as much as possible
(hopefully enough to beat him) or else he will throw stars at all the paddles
immobilizing them. Knock him out, to set the stage for Mr. Bright, who will
throw fire balls and such. Keep smashing him and he'll finally bust. By this
level, you'll probably have the stone ability, which can help your hits be
alot more accurate.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 6 Boss - Mr. Frosty
-------------------------------------------
Mr. Frosty knows what you intend to do, and he is going to be stubborn about
letting you win. He'll stand still, but if you hit him while he's doing this,
he'll grab your ball and throw it. He'll quickly shuffle to the left and right
trying to knock out your paddles, but try and knock him a.s.a.p.... as this
is the only time you really can do so.


-------------------------------------------
Stage 7 Boss - Kracko
-------------------------------------------
His only real threatening attack is his lightning beam, which will immobilize
your paddles... it's unavoidable. Just try and keep hitting him and paddling
your ball with small paddles.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 8 Boss - Whispy Woods
-------------------------------------------
Whispy calls on the help of Gordo aide him in this fight. Gordo will drop
from his branches and try and stun the paddles, and then Whispy will try
and spit out puffs in defense. Using Fireball works excellent.

-------------------------------------------
Stage 9 Boss - Kaboola
-------------------------------------------
Kaboola's flying ability won't help her here, but cannons make up for it.
She'll shoot off cannons in directions, but that's almost about it. Just
keep knocking her

-------------------------------------------
Stage 10 Boss - Robot *Official Name Unknown*
-------------------------------------------
Robot? If anyone knows the name of this boss please e-mail me!
This robot is heavily secured with the platforms making your aim hard.
Try to have an ability, which can help. He'll try to knock out your paddles,
but again, just keep knocking him.


-------------------------------------------
Stage 11 Boss - King Dedede
-------------------------------------------
To get to King Dedede you must have beaten the border line on every stage.
You'll see King Dedede in three forms here:

1) He'll throw bombs
2) Will swallow the ball if shot at him from below
3) He'll shoot rockets at every paddle.

Just try to overcome his attacks and finish him off.

****************************************************************************
9. Bonus Games
****************************************************************************

When you get a Bonus round warpstar in any of the games, you can go to
the bonus round island and choose from 4 cool little games to up
your lifes.

Find these warpstars in the following levels: 1-2, 2-3, 3-1, 4-3, 5-3
                                              6-3, 7-1, 8-3, 9-3 and 10-1

For more indepth info on how to get these warpstars exactly, check out
the level guide.

--------------------------------------
Air Hockey
--------------------------------------

In Air Hockey, are you up against Mr. UFO. While this isn't too
tough of a match. While the ball is in motiobn, try to as close
to your opponent as possible and mimick his every move. If you
win, some extra lives will be awarded. 1 life per goal, 3 goals
maximum.

--------------------------------------
Up Down
--------------------------------------

This game is the easiest as you can't loose your ball and you'll
always win something! Just hit the cards until you match!

King Dedede Match = 1-UP
Warp Star Match   = 2-UP
Kirby Match       = 3-UP

--------------------------------------
Up Cloud
--------------------------------------

In this game, you are trying to knock the clouds up to their
prize - but you can knock them down and loose your ball too.

--------------------------------------
Star Catcher
--------------------------------------

Probably the hardest of all the games, Kirby will be in the
middle shooting a combo of bombs and stars. Catch the stars
with your paddles, but avoid the bombs. It gets fast and
you need quite a few stars to get some 1-ups.

****************************************************************************
10. Secrets and Codes
