Intro _____________________________________________________________________ Hello. This is my first FAQ. First let me tell you about Kirby's Avalanche! Kirby's Avalanche is kind of like Tetris, except there are levels and instead of the bricks there are blobs. Battle through the levels and become the Ava- lanche Champion!!! 2.

How to Play _______________________________________________________________ The object of Kirby's Avalanche is to try to get your opponent's third column from the right to get to the top. Once that happens your opponent loses. In order to do that, you have to create boulders (black blobs) by getting 4 blobs of the same color all touching one another. Then, they will all explode (If there are some boulders surrounding them, the boulders will get destroyed too) . To get many boulders on your opponent's area of the screen, you can try mak- ing "chain reactions". Chain reactions are when 4 blobs explode and then that causes another quadruplet of blobs to explode and you can keep doing. The game says weird things when you make chain reactions such as "yeah", "cool", "ex- cellent!", "watch out!", and "here it comes!". So that is how you play Kirby's Avalanche. 3.5 Controls _________________________________________________________________ D-Pad - Up does nothing, left and right will move the blobs left and right. Down makes the blobs go down faster. A Button - Spins the blobs B Button - Spins the blobs X Button - Nothing Y Button - Nothing Start - Starts the game, Pauses the game Select - Nothing 3.7 Types of Chain Reactions _________________________________________________ "Yeah" = Single Chain Reaction (1) "Excellent" = Double Chain Reaction (2) "Watch Out" = Triple Chain Reaction (3) "Here it Comes" = Quadruplet Chain Reaction (4) 4. Competition Mode __________________________________________________________ There are 4 modes on the main screen. The first one is Competition Mode. In Competition Mode you are in a competition with many of Kirby's enemies to be- come the Avalanche Champion! There are three levels in Competition Mode, be- ginner, normal, and hard. Now let me walk you through the levels. Beginning Level Stage 1 Waddle Dee ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 1 Waddle Dee is the easiest you'll ever challenge. He usually will just try to explode his blobs, hit him with a few chain reactions and he'll be gone in no time! Stage 2 Bronto Burt ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 2 Bronto Burt will hit you with a couple of "yeahs" but nothing more. You have to get a good "excellent" on him, and then he'll be down. Stage 3 Waddle Doo ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 2 Waddle Doo will also hit you with a lot chain reactions. You need to hit him with a good "excellent" or maybe even a "Watch out", because if you don't, the boulders will keep piling and piling and piling until it reaches the top . Normal Level Stage 4 Poppy Bros. Senior ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 2 You don't really need to make a lot of chain reactions to defeat this guy, just make a couple of "yeahs" and he'll be defeated. He doesn't make many ei- ther. Once in a while he'll make a "Yeah" though. Stage 5 Wispy Woods ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 3 Wispy woods starts the game by making 4 rows of blobs. While he's doing this quickly hit him with an "excellent" or "yeah". Once you've done that, hit him with an "excellent" and then you'll win. However, if you take too long to make the "excellent", then Wispy Woods will get you with a big chain reaction. Stage 6 Kabu ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 3 Kabu is very sneaky. If you take too long while you're making your chain reac- tions, he'll get you with a big chain reaction. Make 2 "excellents" FAST, and that'll defeat him. Stage 7 Broom Hatter ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 3 Broom Hatter starts the game by filling the left and right columns with blobs, do many "yeahs" to defeat her. Stage 8 Squishy ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 3 Don't take too long making a big chain reaction because if you do, he'll make it quicker than you and he'll defeat you. To beat squishy, make an "excellent" fast, and then make 2 "yeahs". That will defeat squishy. Stage 9 Lololo and Lalala ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 4 Be prepared for a hard battle. Lololo and Lalala are fast when making chain reactions! You have to be faster. To beat them, you need to make many "yeahs" and "excellents". Stage 10 Bugzzy ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 4 Bugzzy's strategy is that he makes huge chain reactions piling his blobs al- most to the top! You need to prepare an "excellent" and when he's almost at the top... trigger the chain reaction!!! That'll defeat Bugzzy, just be sure not to wait to long or he'll activate his chain reaction first! Stage 11 Paint Roller ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 5 Paint roller has the same strategy as Bugzzy except Paint roller is much quicker when making chain reactions. You need to make your chain reactions quicker too. Try making an "excellent" and then a few "yeahs" and that should defeat him! Stage 12 Heavy Mole ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 5 Heavy Mole hits you many times. You need to counter his attacks by making many "excellents" and then triggering them all at the same time, followed by a few "yeahs". That should defeat him! Stage 13 Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 5 Shine and Bright like to connect blobs together and let them explode. The best I can tell you to do here is to give then a couple of "excellents" and that'll defeat them. Stage 14 Kracko ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 6 Kracko also likes to pile blobs high and make big chain reactions. Try making a couple of "watch outs" and trigger them when kracko is near the top of the screen. That'll defeat kracko! Stage 15 Meta Knight ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 7 Meta Knight makes many "yeahs", you need to make many "excellents" and "watch outs" and bury him in boulders because if you don't he'll bury you first. After you've buried him, he'll try to make a comeback (and most likely succeed ) so you need to make another "excellent" quick, and that should defeat him! Stage 16 King Dedede ______________________________________________________________________________ Difficulty: 8 Well, you've made it to the final battle. Congratulations! Okay, King Dedede is a little slow with making chain reactions, so that's your chance to do one. Just make small "yeahs" every time he tries to make a chain reaction and even- tually it'll bury him. ______________________________________________________________________________ Congratulations you've beaten the game!!! 5. 1 & 2 Player Mode _________________________________________________________ In 1 & 2 player mode you can battle a second player. First, you need to choose the speed of the blobs. There are 5 choices, mild, medium, spicy, hot, and Cajun. They go in order of speed from least to greatest. After you select that then you can start playing. Have fun! 6. Practice Mode _____________________________________________________________ Practice Mode is kind of like 1 & 2 Player Mode except, you aren't versing each other. You're just practicing your Avalanche skills. 2 Players can prac- tice together. First, you need to select the speed of the blobs. There are 3 choices, I'll list them from slowest to fastest. Mild, spicy, and Cajun. After that, you can start practicing. Happy Practicing! 7.
