    Section 4:
    Game Info
    
    Kirby's Air Ride is a racing/battling/events game that pits Kirby against Kirby
    against Kriby against Kirby.  Sound confusing?  It isn't.  Each Kirby playing
    is a different color.  There are many colors: Pink, Red, Blue, Yellow, White,
    Green, Purple etc.  Kirby also uses copy abilities.  Copy abilities are when
    Kirby swallows a foe and copies their abilities.  The copy abilities are:
    
    $Fire$
    Press A to shoot Fireballs that land on the course and act as roadblocks.
    
    -Plasma+
    Shake the control stick back and forth to charge up a more and more powerful
    plasma attack.  The plasma attacks are:
    Plasma Disc
    Double Plasma Disc
    Triple Plasma Bolt
    Plasma Beam
    Plasma Blast
    
    \Wing/
    Kirby sprouts wings and flies rapidly across the course.
    
    O-Wheel-O
    Kirby rolls up into a wheel and tears along the course and smahes obstacles 
    along the way.
    
    |Sword|
    Kirby attains a sword and slashes his way through enemies and opponents with
    reckless abandon
    
    #Noise#
    Kirby grabs a microphone and screams into it as loud as he can.  The resulting
    blast of sound smashes everyone in range.
    
    *Ice*
    Kirby turns into an eskimo and a small blizzard swirls around him and freezes
    those who he touches.
    
    `o-Bomb-`o
    Kirby grabs a huge bomb and hurls it farther as the meter shown charges up.
    The resulting explosion is an immensley huge blast.
    
    ^Needle^
    Kirby puts on a spiked hat.  If you press A, he extends the spikes to cause
    massive damage to whoever he hits.
    
    [--Cracker[--
    Kirby grabs a cannon and begins to blast extremely powerful firecrackers out
    of it.
    
    -^-Gordo-^-
    Sometimes called Golden Spikes, Gordos are massive blue metal spheres with huge
    golden spikes (hence the name) protruding from it.  These deal MAJOR damage to
    foes that come in contact with it.  This is a much larger version of the Needle
    copy ability.
    
    Zzz...Sleep...Zzz
    Kirby goes to sleep and you lose all control until he wakes up.  Are there any
    benefits?  Thats for you to decide.
    
    There are three game modes that are playable.  Air Ride, Top Ride, and City
    Trial.  Air Ride is simply a race for the goal using unlocked Warpstars.  Top
    Ride is viewed from far above.  The courses are tiny and you have your choice
    of two machines.  City Trial is set in a large city and you try to collect
    power-up patches and then race in an event once the timer runs out.

    Section 7:
    Air Ride Mode
    
    Air Ride Mode is the base mode of the game.  Race warpstars along crazy courses
    while dodging/nabbing enemies and hazards along the way.  The controls for Air
    Ride are ridiculously simple.  
    
    Control Stick: Steer
    A Button: Charge booster/drift corners/slow down/use copy ability
    Tilt the control stick left and right rapidly to do a quickspin attack or to
    charge plasma.

    Section 7a:
    Air Ride Courses
    
    Fantasy Meadows ~ Laps: 3
    A grassy wonderland with straightaways and two hairpin turns.  Use a machine
    with good acceleration and speed to maximize your advantage here.
    
    
    Celestial Valley ~ Laps: 2
    Welcome to the most peaceful place in the world.  Celestial Valley has 
    waterfalls and winding roads to keep you calm during the race.  Machines that
    specialize in handling will be best suited for this course.
    
    
    Sky Sands ~ Laps: 2
    
    Watch out for the crazy sand traps and strange hazards scattered around this
    treacherous course.  Watch for sand crabs that function as jumps that can be
    used to acess secret places.  Use machines with good handling and gliding 
    stats here.
    
    
    Frozen Hillside ~ Laps: 2
    Even though I would normally advise that you use a machine with slower speed on
    a course covered in ice, in this case, you may as well use a fast machine with
    a fair handling stat.  The course is extremely slippery and the ice doesn't
    let you do much in the way of braking
    
    
    Magma Flow ~ Laps: 2
    With lost of confusing forks, twists, and other odd road items, this course a
    doozy.  Watch out for lots of Plasma and Fire style enemies that you can 
    capture.  Focus on acceleration as you will have multiple speed transitions
    on this course.
    
    
    Beanstalk Park ~ Laps: 2
    This course can be very frustrating if you don't know what your'e doing.  If
    you are careful however, this course is really extremely easy.  Hitting the
    grind rails is your key to victory.  Max out your gliding and handling abilties
    to press your advantage here.
    
    
    Machine Passage ~ Laps: 2
    This very long and varied course can easily bewilder you if you don't keep your
    cool.  Watch out for forks in the road and make good use of them.  If your
    machine can glide, you will be able to dodge many of the traps placed here.
    
    
    Checker Knights ~ Laps: 2
    A new course style is introduced here.  With a changing style, from Knights and
    Castles to Techno City, this course has a lot of variation in what you need to
    win.  Balance out your stats.  Watch out for oddly colored road tiles as they
    will change the course around instantly.
    
    
    Nebula Belt ~ Laps: 2  #LOCKED COURSE#
    Two words: Long and Straight.  Use the Swerve Star here if you have it.  Or use
    the Turbo or Formula Star.  You don't have to worry about steering almost at
    all here.  only two turns and miles of straightaway.  No enemies to get your
    copy abilities from here, instead allow me to introduce...The Copy Chance
    Wheel.  A floating question mark that, when hit, randomly gives you one of the
    copy abilities.  
    
    Unlock by playing in at least 10 different stadiums in City Trial Mode.

    This course is short and fairly straightforward.  Here is a map:

    The trees slong the way produce bombs that fall off and explode all over the
    place.  This can make the course tricky.

    This course is slightly more difficult.  I think this course has given me more
    trouble than any other.  Map:

    You will find that the giant worm on the X can cause you either heartache or 
    excite.

    Laps:  6
    Secondary Theme Song:  "Kirby Super Star: Revenge of Meta Knight (Map)"
    The trick here is to hit all of the jump panels and smash your way through the
    hazard spin (X on the map).  Map:

                           Start
    
    This course is fairly tricky to do.  You may find that the hazard spin is 
    impassible but it isn't, just keep trying.

    about it, there just isn't much you can do!  Map:

    With nothing more than a few volcanos, this place isn't really that amazing.

    This is my personal favorite course.  The Top Ride equivalent of Nebula Belt,
    This place has glowing grind rails that you can use to get a huge advantage.

    This place isn't taht bad but it isn't that good either.  Not too much action
    happens here and there is a very small amount of scenery that has action to it.

    Section 9:
    City Trial Mode
    
    In City Trial mode, you start out with the Compact Star and drive throughout
    The City gathering powerups and avoiding (and sometimes purposley gathering) 
    powerdowns.  After that, you play a specialized event featuring a battle, a 
    race, a drag race, or a flight sim.  There are many events so keep playing to
    unlock more and more events.  This is also the mode that you can obtain the 
    Dragoon and the Hydra stars.  You may also find King DeDeDe by beating a 
    certian goal.  Check the City Trial checklist for more info!
    
    ###############################################################################
    
    Section 9a:
    City Trial City
    
    Welcome to the city.  This is where you can play around for a set amount of
    time and challenge your foes in a stadium after the City.  The powerups are:
    (Gray versions are powerdowns)
    
    Heart: HP + 1
    Battery: Charge + 1
    Purple Triangles: Boost + 1
    Red Spikes: Offense + 1
    Blue Polygon: Defense + 1
    Brown Box: Weight + 1
    Butterfly: Glide + 1
    Green Circle Arrow: Turn + 1
    Rainbow Circle: All Stats + 1
    
    Now, I have to mention that in flight sim modes, you want to grab as many 
    weight powerDOWNS as possible.  This allows you to fly higher and farther.
    
    The city contains many buildings, a volcano, a golf course, and much more.  
    Play around and find all of the secrets in order to complete the checklist.  
    This place is really fun and many odd events happen in the city including 
    fires, meteors, lighthouses, pillars, the castle hall, fog, bouncing items,
    fake items and more!  This makes for a very interesting game!
