A Natural Choice for Colorization

Reviewed By: Zetawilk on 17 Jan 2022

Kirby’s Pinball Land is a fantastic choice for colorizing. Kirby’s world is colorful, and so are pinball games, so it’s a natural draw to make this game pop with a visual buffet. This mod does a great job at not assaulting the senses with clashing color, and there are only a few hiccups.

For one, the hub area was washed in dark greens, making the scenery difficult to distinguish. The Kracko and Poppy Bros. levels were rather similar in terms of color, and both used very faint colors for the walls that were almost indistinguishable from one another. I also encountered an issue during the final boss. While fighting King Dedede, I received the “500,000 Points” cut scene. After this played, Dedede, and any object sharing his palette such as the mushroom-hatted Cappy, turned completely black.

None of this is particularly game-breaking, and the game is for the most part still very pretty to look at. Seeing these colorization hacks always makes me wish there was some way I could add color to the old Gameboy games that interest me myself. Overall, I say this is a great job, and I’d love to see more.
