Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble sprites
|“||Jump to the left-hand side of the platform each time the hand grabs you for more Star Pieces and 1-Ups.”|
|— Description • Nintendo Power (Volume #143)|
God Hand is a large white glove covered in decorative patterns, specifically four dots, a zigzag, and stripes. Some have red as their accent color while one has gray.
God Hand appears exclusively in the Bonus Stages in Stage 2 of Level 1 and Stage 1 of Level 4. It hovers motionless in the air, but when Kirby rolls underneath it, the hand lunges down and grabs him. It does not attempt to harm the hero in any way.
God Hand's behavior differs depending on its color. In the Stage 2 of Level 1, when a red God Hand picks Kirby up, it rapidly moves left and right. When the player presses the A Button, it stops and tosses the pink puff behind it. This lets Kirby cross gaps he otherwise could not. Kirby can collect the most stars and 1UPs by choosing to be thrown to the left platform rather than the right one each time.
In Stage 1 of Level 4, the gray God Hand is sensitive to the Game Boy Color's gyroscope; when it grabs Kirby, the player has about 10 seconds to move the hand around by tilting the system. When time is up, the hand vanishes and the pink puff drops onto whatever platform he is hovering above, assuming there he is above a platform at all. Moving the hand to the upper-right corner of the screen yields the most 1UPs.
