+==Kirby Superstar - Mini-Games FAQ==+


==================================
Introduction
Hello, welcome to the Kirby Superstar - Mini-Games FAQ. This FAQ will 
help you on the mini-games of Kirby Superstar. The mini-games are 
Megaton Punch, Samurai Kirby, Gourmet Race, and the Arena. 


==================================
Megaton Punch
In this game, Kirby is in a tournament to see who is the strongest. 
There are three challengers, and Kirby must beat them all if he wants to 
win.

To beat your opponents, you have to get a better score than them in 
braking a large stone. First, get the power gauge as high as you can. 
Next, match up the two targets. Finally, match up the circle with the 
the outlined circle. If you do this right, you should get a better score 
than your opponent. Now if you get a really good score, you'll make a 
large crack that will go across the planet. The better the score, the 
larger the crack.


==================================
Samurai Kirby
In this game, Kirby has to draw his weapon before the opponent does. 
Kirby must defeat these challengers if he wants to win:

Waddle Doo
Wheelie
The Chef
King Dedede
Sir Meta Knight

The game gets more difficult each time you fight a new opponent. Watch 
very closely. When it gives the signal, press a button as fast as you 
can. If you press it quick enough, you'll attack your opponent before he 
does. 


==================================
Gourmet Race
In this game, Kirby must race against King Dedede and get the most food 
he can. Go to the Grand Prix to race against Dedede. The one who wins 
the most races, wins. Go to the Time Trials to practice, race against 
the saved star (ghost), or to beat records. You won't have to race 
against Dedede in the Time Trials. There are three courses, which are 
shown below:

Course 1: This isn't really that hard. Just run through the course, 
collecting goodies along the way. Jump over the water and ditches that 
try to stop you, and just eat the blocks that get in your way.

Course 2: This course is a little harder. It seems easy at first, but it 
gets a little harder when you go underground. You'll have to do some 
flying here. Near the end of the course, you can take the high route, or 
the low route. I usually take the high route.

Course 3: This is the hardest race in Gourmet Race. This race is in the 
sky, which means you'll be doing even more flying here. First, pick the 
ability you want to use. Pick the Bird if you want to fly the fastest. 
Pick the Wheel if you want to move the fastest on land.  


==================================
The Arena
You get the Arena if you beat all of Kirby Superstar. First, get the 
ability you wish to use in the battle, or to make a helper out of it. 
After you've selected the ability, hop on the star to go into battle. 
There, you'll have to fight every boss that was in the entire game! A 
little hint, remember that you can hold L or R to block. After every 
boss you beat, you'll make a breif pit stop, where you can get one of 
two different abilities, and recharge your energy with Max-Tomatoes. But 
watch out, you can only use five Max-Tomatoes! If you beat every 
opponent in the Arena, you'll have access to a hidden Sound Test.
