— Instruction manual description • Kirby's Block Ball

Up Cloud is a sub-game that appears in Kirby's Block Ball. To activate it, Kirby must find a Warp Star hidden in a stage and touch it. He will be taken to one of four sub-games, and the player may choose Up Cloud.

Kirby will appear in an atmospheric setting with three clouds. His goal is to bump a cloud to the top of the screen; though Kirby can hit all of them, he will only be rewarded for the first cloud that makes it to the top. A cloud will rise slightly with every bump from underneath -- hitting it from the top fill not work. The sub-game ends when Kirby falls off the screen or hits a cloud all the way to the goal.

When the sub-game is over, Kirby mounts his Warp Star again and returns to the stage he left.

Scoring

  • The cloud in the '1UP' column will reward Kirby with a 1UP if he can get it to the goal. It takes six successful hits to accomplish this.
  • The cloud in the '2UP' column will reward Kirby with two 1UPs if he can get it to the goal. It takes ten successful hits to accomplish this.
  • The cloud in the '3UP' column will reward Kirby with three 1UPs if he can get it to the goal. It takes fourteen successful hits to accomplish this.

Related Quotes

In Up Cloud, you bounce a cloud up to the goal and receive the number of extra lives shown. Be patient if you want a 2- or 3-up.

Trivia

  • When a cloud is hit from underneath, it will look sad. When hit from above, it will look irritated. When it reaches the goal, the cloud will look happy.
  • The three columns vary in order across the screen; they aren't always in the same spot.
