    videogames since the old Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog up to

    4. Storyline
    One day as Kirby and Gooey were fishing, they saw a great black cloud-
    like object appear in the sky. The object started to produce small
    black clouds, which scattered all over Kirby's home planet, PopStar.
    The clouds took control of King Dedede and his subjects. They started
    to take over the planet and did awful things! Now you, the player, must
    come in and save PopStar!
    5. Controls
    a. Kirby
    Use the D-Pad to walk. Tap twice and hold to run.
    Press Down to duck, or drop through certain floors. Also, press Down
    to swallow enemies you have in your mouth. If the enemy has a power,
    you will get it when you swallow him.
    When you are standing on a door, press Up to enter it.
    The (Y) button makes Kirby inhale which will suck up bricks or enemies
    within a certain range. Press (Y) again to spit out an attack star when
    your mouth is full. Pressing (Y) when you have a power will attack.
    Pressing (Y) underwater will make Kirby blow bubbles, which will
    deflect objects or kill enemies.
    The (B) button makes you jump. Press (B) repeatedly to fly. Press (Y)
    while you are flying to spit out an air bullet. These are much weaker
    than attack stars and have a much shorter range. Hold Down and press
    (B) to slide. This slide attacks enemies, destroys blocks, and looks
    really cool. ;)
    The (A) button will also copy a power when your mouth is full. However,
    pressing Down is easier in most situations. When your mouth is empty,
    press (A) to call Gooey. YAY! When you call Gooey, it takes away some
    of your health. You can gain it back by inhaling and swallowing him.
    The computer will control Gooey, but a second player can join the fun!
    The (X) button has no purpose but to grab or release an animal friend
    when you are standing on him. More on that later (See Section 8:
    Animal Friends).
    START pauses the game. Duh. When paused, you can select Continue or
    SELECT will release a power that you don't want as an attack star.
    The (L) and (R) buttons have no purpose in this game.
    b. Gooey
    Same as Kirby, except he will stick his tongue out instead of sucking,
    a.k.a. Yoshi! He will still stick his tongue out underwater, which can
    be useful and un-useful at times.
    To get rid of Gooey, either suck him in and swallow (I like this
    better, because you gain health back), or you can repeatedly press (A)
    on either controller to kill him! >:)
    TRICK: Here is an evil TRICK to have (almost) unlimited health! When
    you have only one hit left, call Gooey (press (A)). Now suck him back
    up and swallow him down! HAHA! Now you have three hits left! Do it
    whenever you are desperately low on health.
    TRICK: When playing 2-player or with Gooey and Gooey is low on health,
    suck him up and swallow him down! Now call him back, good as new!
    6. Items
    These items occur in the game repeatedly, and are vital to long-term
    success. Here is a list of what they all are and how to use them.
    a. Stages
    These are the items you will find in the stages throughout the game.
    Star Blocks- These blocks are everywhere! Suck them up to spit them out
    as attacks. They may also be hiding Star Pieces...
    Power Blocks- These dark-brown blocks cannot be broken unless you use
    the power that is shown on them.
    Star Pieces- Get enough of these to get a 1-Up! They are hiding
    everywhere, so keep your eye out for them.
    Energy Drink- These items will restore two hits, or one big square of
    health to the person who obtains it.
    Maxim Tomatoes- These super veggies will completely restore your
    health, plus Gooey's! Get at all costs!
    Invincible Candy- Get these to make you and Gooey totally invincible
    for a limited time. You can die only by getting squished or by falling
    off the screen.
    1-Up- Gives you an extra life! Get at *ALL* costs!
    Exit Door- End of the level. It is the only door which has stars over
    it. It will take you to a screen where you will (or won't) receive the
    Heart, depending on whether or not you fulfilled the secret mission.
    See Section 9 for more info on hearts.
    Hearts- You get these by fulfilling the secret mission in each level.
    After you get all of them, you will be able to fight the final boss!
    The door here will take you to the jumping bonus game.
    b. Goal Game
    After you beat each level, you will be taken to a bonus game where you
    must jump to receive an item. Gooey can play this game, too. The higher
    you stand, the shorter you will jump. The lower you crouch, the farther
    you will jump. Here are the items you can get.
    Power Star- Gives you one Star Piece
    Medium Power Star- Gives you three Star Pieces
    Big Power Star- Gives you five Star Pieces
    Energy Drink- Gives you an Energy Drink
    Maxim Tomato- Gives you a Maxim Tomato
    1-Up- Gives you a 1-Up
    Ugly Faces- Bogus! Gives you nothing!
    TRICK: Most of the time the Maxim Tomato and the 1-Up are close
    together. Time your jumps so that you may land on either one if you
    aren't able to land on specific targets 100% of the time. That way you
    will almost always get something good!
    7. Powers
    There are eight different kinds of powers, which will give different
    attacks. Almost all attacks are diminished when underwater. They are,
    with short explanation and usefulness in 1-5 star rating:
    Fire- **** Turns you into a fireball and blasts you forward.
    Ice- **1/2 Blows ice breath, turning enemies into ice blocks which you
    can push at other enemies. Not as good as some, as you are vulnerable
    from behind and above.
    Broom- *1/2 Sweeps dust clouds, which will destroy objects and enemies.
    I don't like this one very much, due to its short attack range.
    Cutter- ****1/2 Throws boomerangs! YAY! ;) Extremely useful, not to
    mention fun. My personal favorite.
    Stone- *** Turns you into a stone, where you can roll down hills. You
    are invulnerable to all attacks when you are in stone form. It's the
    hardest to learn how to use successfully, but I like it.
    Spike- *** Turns you into a spikeball. You are invulnerable to most
    enemy attacks. Easier to learn how to use than the stone, and more
    Umbrella- ***1/2 Gives you an umbrella which you can swing at enemies.
    Leave it up and it will protect you from attacks from above. Press
    Down and it will act as a shield. When you are in the air, press Up to
    float to the ground. Very cool!
    Electricity- **** Turns you into a hyper-jolted creampuff! Hold down Y
    to turn yourself into a thousand enemy-pulsating watts of pure energy!
    I love this one!
    When you lose too much health, you will drop your power as an attack
    star. Suck it back up and absorb again!
    To drop your power if you want a different one, press Select.
    These attacks are only when you are alone. When you are riding an
    animal friend, the attack will be different. With six different animal
    friends and eight powers, there are 48 different combination attacks,
    plus these regular attacks, giving Kirby and Gooey quite a powerful
    arsenal! More in the next section (Section 8: Animal Friends).
    8. Animal Friends
    When you meet an animal friend, stand on him and press (X) to get on
    him. Press (X) again to get off. Each animal has his own strength and
    weakness. Only one person can team up with an animal at a time.
    Example: Kirby can have an animal while Gooey can't, and vice-versa.
    Each animal friend has a different attack with a different power. Here
    is the complete list plus their effectiveness in a 1-5 star rating. On
    the average of their star rating attacks, the most effective attack
    combinations are on Kine, then Nago, then Pitch, Coo, Rick, and Chuchu,
    in that order. However, depending on the situation, the most useful can
    depend on that friend's unique abilities.
    a. Rick the Hamster
    His strength is that when he is up against a wall, repeatedly press
    jump to vault up the side of un-jumpable heights! He also doesn't slide
    on ice. His weakness is that he can't suck ( >;| ); he only opens his
    mouth. Therefore you must hold down the (Y) button and run at enemies
    you want.
    Fire- **** This turns Rick into a flame-thrower! You can't move when
    you hold the button down, though.
    Ice- **1/2 Turns you into a weird block that shivers off ice, freezing
    anything it touches. You are still rather vulnerable, though.
    Broom- *1/2 Rick will stick a broom out of his mouth and swing it in
    front of him. You can't move when you perform this attack. I hate this
    Cutter- *** Rick will throw Kirby, allowing you to control Rick while
    you fly around destroying anything you touch.
    Stone- **1/2 Rick will transform into a boulder, allowing you to walk
    on him. You are vulnerable where Kirby stands.
    Spike- ** Rick will turn his back into spikes. Vulnerable from the
    Umbrella- * Rick will pull out an umbrella and Kirby will balance on
    it. You are vulnerable from all sides except where the umbrella is.
    Electricity- ** Same as the flame-thrower, except an electric beam that
    has less range.
    b. Kine the Fish
    He is the best swimmer, as he can go against currents! His weakness is
    his awkward movement on land.
    Fire- ****1/2 Kine will blow a flame ring that continues until it goes
    off the screen. It will continue through all walls, but will disappear
    when it hits an enemy.
    Ice- ** You will turn into an iceberg, freezing anything you touch.
    Not that good.
    Broom- *** Kine will stick a plunger out of his mouth. You can move
    around with it sticking out in front of you. It will pick up any bad
    guy it touches, holding him in front of the plunger. You can ram them
    into other enemies, or let go of the (Y) button to spit them. You can
    also pick up star blocks.
    Cutter- **** A beam that fades away the farther it goes. Similar to the
    flame ring, but will continue through all enemies it touches.
    Stone- 1/2 Kirby will turn into a stone, and Kine will flip onto his
    mouth, where you are. This *STINKS*! >;(
    Spike- **** You will turn into a huge spike ball. Same as regular
    spike attack, but bigger! ;)
    Umbrella- *** Kine will stick an umbrella out of his mouth and point
    it upwards. When you jump with it out, you will float gently to the
    ground. Kinda neat.
    Electricity- ***** A light bulb will come out of Kine's mouth,
    illuminating dark rooms and revealing hidden doors! After a while, it
    will burn out, leaving the sharp glass to poke enemies with!
    c. Coo the Owl
    He can fly against wind currents, but never makes contact with the
    Fire- *** Kirby will turn into a fireball and Coo will thrust you
    diagonally downwards whichever way you are facing.
    Ice- **1/2 Coo will throw out three icicles, one forward, one
    diagonally up, and the other diagonally down, freezing whatever they
    Broom- **1/2 Coo will turn into a feather duster, which Kirby will
    shake in front of him. You are vulnerable from behind and above.
    Cutter-  **** Coo will throw a big feather. Aim which direction they
    go by pressing Up or Down and hitting (Y).
    Stone- **1/2 Kirby will turn into a stone, and Coo will fall with
    great speed. Repeatedly pressing the (B) button will make Coo flap his
    wings and will raise you higher, little by little. He looks extremely
    funny when he's flapping his little butt off trying to keep a fifty-
    pound Kirby in the air. You are vulnerable from both sides and above.
    Spike- *1/2 This attack will turn Kirby into a single spike pointing
    downwards. Coo will fall slowly to the ground. Not very good as you
    are vulnerable from everywhere except the spike.
    Umbrella- *** Coo will pull out an umbrella and twirl around for a
    second. While you are spinning you are invincible to most attacks.
    Electricity- ***1/2 Coo will zap a lightning bolt down, destroying
    enemies and blocks. This is like the cloud monster's move from the Ado
    boss (see Section 12: Boss Tactics).
    d. Nago the Cat
    He can triple jump, which makes a really cool sound. His disadvantage
    is his mondo size, which makes him a bigger target.
    Fire- **** Nago will spit a wall of flame that travels along the
    ground. It gets shorter and shorter and eventually disappears.
    Ice- **1/2 Kirby will turn downwards and blow ice breath that propels
    you upwards. The ice breath underneath you will freeze anything it
    touches. Not very good as you can be hit from above and both sides.
    Broom- ****1/2 Nago will push Kirby into the dirt and ride him along
    like a "turf"-board. You are practically invulnerable and will destroy
    Cutter- ** Nago will shoot a boomerang-shaped thing diagonally upwards.
    Not good because you cannot attack forwards.
    Stone- *1/2 Kirby will turn into a stone and Nago will bang him on the
    ground, making dust shoot forward. The dust will destroy enemies and
    blocks. This is much like the broom power alone. You are vulnerable
    from behind and above.
    Spike- *** Kirby will shoot out spikes forwards at different angles,
    which destroy anything in its path. You are vulnerable from behind and
    Umbrella- **** Nago and Kirby will bounce on an umbrella like a pogo
    stick. You are almost invulnerable.
    Electricity- *** Kirby will charge up and shoot out electric sparks.
    The longer you hold down the attack button and stand still, the
    farther out the sparks shoot. When you move, you stay charged up until
    the sparks eventually die down.
    e. Chuchu the ?!
    She looks like a cross of Kirby, Gooey, and that wad of gum you peeled
    off your shoe yesterday. >:p She can walk on ceilings, but can't fly
    very well and has a weird suck that is sort of like Gooey's.
    Fire- **1/2 Chuchu will breathe a VERY short flame. If you hold down
    the jump button while holding down the attack button, Chuchu will turn
    into a hot-air balloon and float upwards. She will also destroy
    anything she touches.
    Ice- *1/2 Chuchu will throw inaccurate snowballs. They freeze anything
    they touch.
    Broom- **1/2 Chuchu and Kirby will fly around on a broom. You are
    vulnerable everywhere except the back of the broom. You have unlimited
    flight, though. ;)
    Cutter- ** Kirby will swing Chuchu around him in an arc over his head
    and under his feet. She will destroy anything she touches. Not very
    useful, though, because she has such a short range. 
    Stone- ** Kirby will turn into a stone and Chuchu will swing him
    around. You are vulnerable to attacks above you.
    Spike- **1/2 Spikes will fly out of Chuchu everywhere except
    underneath for a moment. Therefore you are vulnerable to attacks from
    Umbrella- ***1/2 Chuchu and Kirby will spin around on an upside-down
    umbrella. You are invincible to most attacks while you spin.
    Electricity- *1/2 Hold down Y to charge up the electric power. Chuchu
    will shoot out an electric bullet that will bounce off some walls. Fun
    to look at, but not very effective at all due to the size of the
    bullet and time required to charge up.
    f. Pitch the Bird
    He doesn't have strengths or weaknesses, all he does is make your
    attacks better.
    Fire- ***1/2 Pitch will turn into a fireball. He will fly to the edge
    of the screen and come back. Same as regular fire except you can still
    move Kirby, and has longer range.
    Ice- ***1/2 Same as regular ice, with much longer range.
    Broom- **1/2 Pitch will throw blobs of water which will explode
    diagonally on impact of anything.
    Cutter- **** Pitch will turn into a boomerang and fly out to the edge
    of the screen. He can fly through walls. Same as fire with him, only
    Stone- ** Pitch will turn into a stone, jump up and plunge to the
    ground, destroying anything in his path. Similar to Kine with stone,
    except Pitch can get more height, due to his flying ability.
    Spike- *** Pitch will dart forward repeatedly, poking his beak at
    anything in his way. He will keep his height in the air as long as you
    hold the button down.
    Umbrella- * Kirby will whack Pitch with the umbrella, sending a curled-
    up Pitch bouncing around. He will eventually come back to you, but you
    can press (Y) to bring him back faster. Extremely inaccurate and hard
    to use.
    Electricity- ****1/2 Pitch will turn into an electrified bird, leaving
    Kirby on the ground with a remote control. Use the D-Pad to aim Pitch
    around, and press (Y) to bring him back. Totally to the max, dudes!
    This is extremely fun to play with, plus Kirby looks cool hanging onto
    the remote. However, you are immobile on the ground, leaving Kirby
    9. The Hearts
    You get a heart when you fulfill a secret mission in the level.
    Usually the level's picture will give you a hint on what to do.
    Whenever you enter the section with the secret mission, it will play
    a special sound effect. Always fulfill the goals I have listed when
    you hear that sound. Getting every single one is the only way to fight
    the final form of Dark Matter! After you have fulfilled the secret
    mission the first time and obtained the heart, you will receive a 1-Up
    for fulfilling the mission again, instead! Here is a complete listing
    on what to do in every level:
    a. World 1: Grass Land
    1-1: Don't stomp any of the pink flowers.
    1-2: Pet the weird spring creature with Chuchu's basic lick.
    1-3: Win the Throwing Gordo mini-game.
    1-4: Get the rock power and advance to the point where there are three
    rock Power Blocks underneath you. Break them open and go into the door
    to fight a mini-boss (see Section 11). Beat him to get the monkey
    required for the heart.
    1-5: Beat the level with Kine the Fish.
    1-6: In the tree section, go along the sides and find the three
    objects for the clown to juggle.
    Boss 1: Beat him with all the hearts in this world.
    b. World 2: Ripple Field
    2-1: Get the broom power with Pitch the Bird and go into each
    underwater door. Water the plants to grow purple flowers. Don't stomp
    2-2: Use the umbrella power with Kine and jump around at the umbrella
    creature to make it happy.
    2-3: Win the Eel-In-The-Pot mini-game.
    2-4: Use Kine and electricity power to reveal a hidden door at the top
    of the self-scrolling part. Go into it to fight a mini-boss (see
    Section 11). Absorb the mini-boss's power to open the Power Blocks to
    save the frog.
    TRICK: In the part with lots of Nidoos (the fake doors) and falling
    balls, use Kine and electricity to reveal a hidden door with Power
    Stars and a Maxim Tomato!
    2-5: Beat the level with Pitch the Bird. To find him, use Kine
    throughout the level until there will be a passage going to the left
    with a current and door. Get Pitch inside it and beat the level. This
    passage is rather hard to find, so try every current-filled passages!
    2-6: Look at the level map picture. When you come to a room with a
    bunch of blocks, break them to form a shape that looks like this
    (the numbers show how many are in each row):
    TRICK: In the part with lots of the green blobs that shoot you forward,
    the path to take is the top blob, then bottom, then second from the
    Boss 2: Beat him with all the hearts in this world.
    c. World 3: Sand Canyon
    3-1: Leave the mushrooms alone while flattening all the pink flowers!
    3-2: Help out the janitor by sweeping the dirty floors with a broom.
    3-3: Win the Gordo Face mini-game.
    3-4: Save the girl by taking the lower, then upper, then middle paths
    in the self-scrolling part to fight a mini-boss (see Section 11).
    Defeat him to rescue the girl and return her to her mother.
    3-5: Beat the level with Chuchu the plasmatic Blob. You will get to one
    part where you cannot continue because of her horrid flying ability. To
    get past this obstacle, get fire power in the room below. Now hot-air-
    balloon your way up.
    3-6: Find all the parts of the robot. This is the hardest heart to get
    in the game. A hint here is to have a second controller plugged in and
    to give Gooey the animal friends in rooms that require a friend. Now,
    instead of having to find the exact power to get Kirby and his friend
    across some obstacle, just give Gooey the animal and get there your-
    self, as Kirby. Gooey and the friend will warp, saving you a lot of
    time. In the watery section of the pyramid, go down to a room with all
    the powers and animal friends. In the watery main section again, go
    down-right with Kine and umbrella to get an arm. Watery main and
    down-left with Coo and stone for another arm. Watery main and up-right
    to the top, then drop down the floor in the middle for the body. Watery
    main and up-left and either use Kine and electricity to reveal the
    correct doors, or take the middle, left, right, left, and middle doors
    for the bottom of the robot. Watery main and up for the head, then drop
    down the blue sections of the floor. Watery main again; now go right
    to finish the level.
    Boss 3: Beat him with all the hearts in this world.
    d. World 4: Cloudy Park
    4-1: Get Coo and broom power and dust off all the black flowers. Don't
    squash them!
    4-2: Get spike power and pop the balloon with the chick at the end of
    the level.
    4-3: Win the Colored Gordo mini-game.
    4-4: Use Coo to fight the mini-boss (see Section 11) and then to fly
    against the wind current to rescue an orange. An ORANGE?!?!
    4-5: Beat the level with Rick the Hamster. Make sure to use lots of
    wall-vault jumps (see Section 8).
    4-6: Look at the upside-down creature. In the room with blocks, break
    the blocks to make a shape that looks like this (the numbers show how
    many are in each row):
                  _ _ _ _ _
    Boss 4: Beat him with all the hearts in this world.
    e. World 5: Iceberg
    5-1: Melt all the frozen flowers with the fire power. Be careful you
    don't squash any!
    5-2: Freeze all the weird jellyfish-fire creatures in the underground
    fire caves with ice power to help warm up...Samus Aran?!
    5-3: Win the Gordo Sound mini-game.
    5-4: Get Coo and fire. To find Coo in this level, right after the part
    where you keep dropping through the breaking ice blocks with all the
    fire dragons, use the fire power on the two ice blocks on the right.
    The hidden door holds Coo. The other blocks hold a door with Rick, but
    you will want Coo. Continue until you get to a part with lots of ice
    blocks. Keep melting them until you get to a door with two plants that
    is unreachable with any other fire combination. Go in there and break
    the ice blocks by going down with Coo, and the ones going up with
    Chuchu, who is there along with Pitch. Keep switching until you get
    to a door with the snail's shell in it. After that you will have to
    fight a mini-boss (see Section 11) that is very easy to defeat.
    5-5: Beat the level with Nago the Cat.
    5-6: Fight all the mini-bosses (see Section 11), absorbing each one's
    power before it explodes. Now get the feathers behind the Power Blocks
    in the room after. Get all the feathers to make the girl happy.
    Boss 5: Beat him with all the hearts in this world.
    10. Enemy List
    There are lots and lots of enemies in this game, some having powers
    that you can absorb. Others don't and are just there to get in your
    way. Listing them all plus all of their names took me a while; but it
    was worth it! Here is the list in alphabetical order; each enemy also
    has what power he gives at the end:
    Apolo- His home is on the sides of trees and other round objects. He
    will spin around on the cylinders and not do much else. No powers.
    Babut- This annoying pest will hang from ceilings, then when you get
    near, will fly around, trying to get a piece of your face, which he
    will, sometimes. No powers.
    Batamon- This looks like a clone of Kirby! Most of the time there is
    a barricade between him and you. However, if you use Pitch and
    Electricity, you can get rid of him quickly. Thanx to Matthew for
    telling me this! BUT, in level 4-3, if you go BEYOND the end door, you
    will find a lot of Batamons, until you get to one without barriers!!!
    AWESOME!!! Kudos go to Magus 666 for this hyper-cool piece of info. By
    the way, Batamon gives no powers. ;p
    Blipper- This fish can be in or out of water. Out of water, he's no
    threat. Under water, he will move in your direction. No powers.
    Bobo- This little fireball will walk around. They come in the short
    and fat version, or tall and lanky! Take your pick! Fire power.
    Boten- This thing is always on the top of cactuses in desert areas.
    They will not do anything until you walk under them; then they will
    fall down and try to spike you. Spike power.
    Bouncy- This spring creature will just bounce around with her pretty
    bow in her hair. No powers.
    Bronto Burt- This guy will sometimes rest on the ground, and when you
    come near, he'll fly up and dive-bomb you! Other times he will just
    fly in the sky, following a pattern. No powers.
    Broom Hatter- He walks on the ground, sweeping up dust with his broom.
    He wears a witch's hat for some weird reason. Broom power.
    Bukiset- These creatures are unique in the fact that they will give
    any powers! Their attacks will show which powers they give.
    Cappy- This is a little mushroom that hops around. Suck off his cap
    and he will walk around, looking a little frightened. >;) Now suck HIM
    up! MWA-HA-HA!!! Sorry. No powers.
    Chilly- He is an evil snowman that will throw out a little force field
    of ice flakes around him. He will sometimes waddle towards you in
    certain levels. Ice power.
    Como- This creature looks like a tick-spider mix and will hang from
    surfaces by his thread, coming down to throw his webbing at you. No
    powers, again.
    Dekabu- He looks like one of those statues from Easter Island! He is
    the large one that spits out Kabus. You can't suck him.
    Dogan- This little caveman will hit anything you spit at him with his
    trusty club! No powers.
    Doka- He will go around throwing pieces of rock at you with his
    shovel. No powers.
    Gabon- This guy wears a skull for a cap and throws bones. Suck his hat
    off, though, and he is a helpless wimp! No powers.
    Galbo- These fire dragons will not move and apparently will snooze
    until you come near enough. Fire power.
    Gansan- This seems to be made of three stones, which take turns being
    the head. He rolls around. Stone power.
    Glunk- He will hang from ceilings and floors and shoot rays at you. No
    Gordo- This spike ball will float around or stay in place. You can't
    do anything to it but avoid it.
    Joe- These are sharks that will try to take a hunk outta yer face! No
    Kabu- These are little Dekabus! They will roll around and do nothing
    else. No powers.
    Kany- This looks like a little crab who will try to grab you with his
    claws. No powers.
    Kapar- He looks like a green duck. He will stand in place, jumping
    and throwing his spiky hat at you randomly. He can also swim. Cutter
    Keke- She's a cute little witch, riding her broom. Suck her broom and
    check out her awesome cartwheels! He, he, he, Ke-Ke-Ke! >;) OK, I'll
    stop now. Broom power for her broom and her.
    Klinko- This purple dude looks like he's wearing a straw hut on his
    head! He will hop around. Umbrella power.
    Loud- This rain-cloud will hover in the sky and drop rain sometimes.
    No powers.
    Madoo- He's a little wizard who flies in the sky, staying above you
    until you stand still so he can have a clear shot at you with his
    black blobs. However, they can destroy some blocks that you cannot,
    allowing you to access passages you yourself could not go to! No
    powers, as usual.
    Magoo- This fireball has a black center and will jump up when you come
    near. Fire power.
    Mariel- This is a black circle that will grow legs and come after
    you! It looks like a giant spider. Rather uniquely, he will give you
    damage if you swallow him!
    Mony- This is a little creature who lives in his shell, swimming
    around and doing nothing. No powers.
    Mopoo- These are blue rays that only appear in one level of the game.
    They shoot out from their hiding place. Try and attack their heads.
    No powers.
    Mumbies- They look like little hovering mummies. No powers.
    Nidoo- These creatures look like doors, until you get too close! No
    Nruff- These look like porcupines that run around, bumping into
    anything they meet and changing direction. They are sometimes ridden
    by Waddledees. No powers.
    Oro- He is a yellow blob that hides on floors and ceilings, rearing
    his little head when you get too close. No powers.
    Pakto- These big traps will jump up or fall down and try to chew you
    up. You can't suck them.
    Pasara- These white clouds are too spiky to touch, and when you do,
    they split into three small ones! No powers, as they are unsuckable.
    Peloo- These faces don't appear until you are directly underneath
    them, then they will drop their tongues and try to eat you! Yuck! You
    can't do anything to them.
    Peran- These dudes will peek out from their hiding place behind the
    wallpaper and spit blobs at you. No powers.
    Polof- This guy looks like a bunny and only appears in level 3-1. No
    TRICK: However, leave him alone and he will disappear! Press Up where
    he vanished to find a hidden room with a 1-Up and lots of Power Stars!
    Popon- He looks like a bunch of green blobs stacked up on each other,
    because that's what he is! He will grow indefinitely unless you can
    destroy the bottom blob. He will also throw green blobs at you. No
    Poppy Bros. Jr.- These will sometimes walk along on pieces of rather
    large fruit. Otherwise he will just walk around aimlessly. No powers,
    though you can get two attack stars: one from him, one from the fruit.
    Propeller- This starts out as an egg, but when you come close, this
    creature hatches out! He comes in random colors; there is no
    difference what color it is. He will fly around and try to hit you. No
    Pteran- They fly around, hovering to your level, though they never
    change direction unless they come to a wall. No powers.
    Rocky- The basic rock power form. He will walk around, sometimes
    jumping to smash you. They will also roll down hills, like you. Rock
    power, DUH!
    Sasuke- This creature has a little umbrella on his head. They will
    sometimes fall from the sky, using their umbrella heads as a
    parachute. Umbrella power.
    Scarfy- He will float in the air, looking rather harmless, but if you
    try to inhale him... Wow! Can he ever get mad! No powers.
    Shotzo- It is nothing but a cannon that shoots round bullets at you.
    You cannot suck them or attack them, and they will hurt you if you
    touch them.
    Sirkibble- This looks like a little knight in armor, and will throw
    boomerangs at you. Cutter power.
    Sparky- This green blob will hop around and start shooting electricity
    at times. Electricity power.
    Squishy- This squid does nothing but float up and down, sometimes
    jumping out of the water. No powers.
    Tick- He looks nice, harmless, and cute when you are at or below his
    level, but when you are above him, this evil thing will spike you with
    his pointy head. Spike power.
    Togezo- This creature has a spiky shell and walks around slowly,
    sometimes thrusting out his spikes with vigor. Spike power.
    Waddle Dee- This baddie is really easy; all he can do is walk and jump
    around. Sometimes he rides Nruffs or paddleboards. No powers for eating
    Wapod- This is some sort of Waddle Dee genie. He will recreate
    indefinitely unless you destroy his bottle. No powers for either.
    Wappa- This furry creature does nothing but walk and roll around. Snow
    Yaban- This fatso will jump up and shoot arrows at you. Talk about evil
    Cupids! No powers.
    11. Mini-Boss Tactics
    Mini-bosses appear quite frequently and are usually guarding a secret
    to unlocking the mission required for the heart in that level. They
    all follow a distinct pattern and represent a certain power. After you
    defeat them, you can suck them and absorb the power they have. All the
    mini-bosses shouldn't give you any trouble, as they are all *very* easy
    to defeat. The list is arranged under power, then name, then how to
    defeat him.
    Fire- Boboo: This boss walks along slowly on the ground, sometimes
    ramming himself into the wall. The impact will produce objects to spit
    at him.
    Ice- Yuki: This giant snowman is not in a good mood! He will throw
    three snowballs at you; spit them at him when his head re-appears. He
    will sometimes jump around. Not that hard.
    Broom- Haboki: This over-sized sweep will jump around, creating stars
    to spit back at him. He will also sweep up stars. Very, very easy.
    Cutter- None
    Stone- Blocky: He will walk around and rush at the wall, giving
    objects to spit back. He will also triple jump; on the third jump, he
    will smash down, creating more objects.
    Spike- Captain Stitch: This guy is not confined by gravity! He will
    float around after you if you try to take refuge in an upper corner.
    He will throw his spikes at the wall. Suck them up and spit them back
    before his spikes grow back; you can't hurt him when he has his spikes.
    He will also charge the wall, which will knock off his spikes. He is
    the hardest of the mini-bosses.
    Umbrella- Jumper Shoot: He will kick off his sandal; suck it up and
    spit it back. He will also jump around, though he doesn't create
    objects when he jumps. He will also spin around; when he does, he is
    totally invulnerable. Fly up into a high corner. He can't reach you
    Electricity- None
    12. Boss Tactics
    Each boss has a pattern, which can be found out easily. I have recorded
    each boss's weaknesses and how to easily defeat each.
    a. Whispy (the Tree)
    This boss is easy! Just suck the stuff he spits out and throw it back
    at his deranged face. He will start running at you after a while. If
    you touch his moving roots, he will kick you away. This won't hurt you
    unless you land on something. Watch out for his white beams! The best
    power to use on the evil grinning oak is the boomerang.
    b. Acro (the Killer Whale)
    Jump over him when he charges and blast the stones he knocks out of the
    wall back at him. After a while, you will have to fight him underwater,
    where you must blow back the stones he knocks down. He will also spit
    stuff at you. The skulls go straight, the anchors sink and roll on the
    bottom, and the little whales dip up and down as they follow you. He
    isn't picky about what he eats, I can tell you that! You can blow the
    objects (not the anchors) he spits at you back at him by pressing (Y)
    if you have not powers. Best to use the fire, boomerang, or stone
    TRICK: You can destroy the objects he spits out with a power attack.
    TRICK: With the boomerang underwater, face the other way, slightly
    lower than him and throw the boomerangs while holding Up. They will go
    over your head and back at this digestive tract-filled whale.
    c. Don and Con (Raccoon and Fox)
    This fox and raccoon team is quite a pain in the butt! Suck the little
    animals up, then spit them back at the bigger ones. Watch out for the
    bomb that falls from above! The best power to use here is fire. Press
    Down to fall through the floor if impending danger rushes at you!
    d. Ado (the Boy Artist)
    This wimpy artist is rather easy, but time-consuming. First you will
    fight a creature that will blow ice at you and charge across the
    screen. Get ready to suck the ice blocks he throws at you. Next is an
    anglerfish. If his light is spiky, then get ready to dodge three
    electric balls. If his light is round, suck the star and throw it back
    at him! Fly over his head when he jumps around. The sun and moon are
    the hardest form. Suck and spit the stuff the one on the top drops
    while avoiding the one on the bottom. You can duck and let the moon
    pass over you, but you must jump over the sun. After one is destroyed,
    the other will fly everywhere and drop things. Dodge him and spit it
    back when he comes low. The cloud monster is intimidating, but a total
    wimp. Stay in the extreme corners and wait for him to drop mini-clouds.
    Spit them back when he is in the low position. Be careful, since he
    will sometimes come right over you and zap you with lightning! He will
    sometimes sweep the screen with his lightning, but if you stay in the
    corner and don't move he can't get you. After he is defeated, fight
    the even wimpier Ado himself! He will run around with his eyes shut,
    swinging his brush in a futile attempt to get rid of you. Slide into
    him to finish him off. I prefer no powers for this boss.
    e. King Dedede (the Duck)
    This boss is extremely hard with no powers. My favorite combination is
    Coo with boomerang and have a friend control Gooey with boomerangs.
    Fly out of his reach, aim with Up and Down, and blast him with
    feathers! Keep Gooey pumping it out like a maniac. Watch out, as
    Dedede will jump high enough to hit Coo at the highest point, suck
    like Kirby and pull this humongous hammer out of nowhere and smash
    anything in range. Ouch!
    To defeat him with no powers, wait until he jumps up or pulls out his
    hammer. When he smashes down, suck up the stars that come out from the
    impacts. Spit them at him! After you defeat him, Dark Matter will take
    complete control of him and turn him into a freak monster! Again, fly
    around blasting him with feathers. When his stomach opens with teeth,
    MOVE! He will come and grab you unless you are fast enough. When the
    eye in his stomach opens, just keep throwing, as your feathers will
    cancel out the black blobs. Without powers, avoid his attacks until he
    shoots the black blobs from the eye. Inhale the blobs and spit them out
    at him when he floats low enough. Continue until you knock him out!
    Victory, but not completely...
    f. Dark Matter
    You can only reach this boss when you have gotten every single heart
    and defeated all the bosses a second time. I *HATE* him! You must
    fight three forms of him. First, just keep throwing your heart power
    at him whenever his spikes are not facing out. When they are, watch
    out, because he will throw them at you and they will chase you. He
    will also float around and stop and zap black lightning at direct
    diagonals to the way he is facing. After him, you must fight a mondo
    white creature with a red eye in the center. This guy is pretty
    freaky. Keep zapping while you avoid the little black guys and red
    blobs he throws at you. Sometimes he will charge and come back, so
    anticipate whether he will go high or low. When he comes back, he will
    be in the distance, throwing red blobs at the screen. After that, you
    must fight the red eyeball in the center. He will chase you around,
    so fly in circles and turn around and hit him whenever you get the
    chance. After a few more hits, complete victory is secured! I prefer
    playing this boss alone *without* Gooey.
    13. The Mini-Games
    There are five mini-games that appear in the game; each will give you
    a heart for that level if you get all three right. Here are the games:
    Throwing Gordo Game- The blue dude will throw a Gordo. Identify which
    one it was three times to win.
    Eel-In-The-Pot Game- The eel will move from pot to pot faster and
    faster while Gordos will come out of the others. Guess which one
    he is in three times correctly to win.
    Gordo Faces Game- Lots of Gordos with different faces will show their
    faces for a brief moment then turn around again. The chicken-egg
    creature will ask for a certain face. Enter how many of that face
    there were three times to win.
    Colored Gordo Game- Lots of Gordos will come out and go away quickly.
    They will be blue, red, yellow, or black. The balloon creature will
    ask for a color, though never for black. The black ones are just to
    throw you off. Enter how many there were of the color he wants
    correctly three times to win.
    Gordo Sound Game- Five Gordos will fall from the sky. Each will make
    a different noise. The yellow fatso with the pan will make a noise,
    which will match one of the balls' sounds. Guess correctly three times
    to win.
    TRICK: I find recording the sounds on my Yak-Back to be *very*
    helpful. ;)
    14. The Secret Options
    When you start the game, you only have Sound Test and Mono/Stereo
    selection. As you progress, you receive more options! As to when they
    appear, I still don't know. Completion of all these is the only way to
    get 100%. Here are all the options:
    The Music Note- Sound Test and Mono/Stereo select.
    M- Mini-Games. All five of the mini-games that occur in the game, one
    after another. Beat this perfectly to get the jumping game.
    J- Jumping Game. The game that you play after every level. Don't land
    on the Ticks, as you will lose the game if you do.
    B- Boss Butch. Fight every boss in the game in consecutive order
    without powers or Gooey.
    ?- After you beat the Boss Butch, this option becomes available. It
    allows you to watch the movies for each world, the opener, and the
    three endings, or you can string all of them together for a really long
    movie. Yeah, I finally got it! Woo-hoo!
    15. Special Thanx
    This FAQ is dedicated to everyone on this list.
    These are the people that I found invaluable in the creation of this
    FAQ, by helping me write it, or for just being my friend and providing
    moral support. 
    First, *BIG* thanx to my parents: for all the time and money they spent
    on me, allowing me to learn proper English and grammar; for the
    computer to write this on; and for letting me get the Super Nintendo,
    Sega Genesis, Dreamcast and everything else I have! Without them you
    wouldn't be reading this!
    Thanx again, everyone!
    Jason "Double -S-" Tsui- (stkrule@yahoo.com)
    My brother, Jason, also known as STKRule, for all the help in typing
    and researching the info for this FAQ, plus helping me beat the game
    by controlling Gooey! He helped me with everything I needed for
    writing this FAQ. If there is anything else he helped with that I
    forgot to put down I'm sure he will "tell-us". ;) He also helped me
    create the ASCII title that you see on top. Thanx a million, STKRule!
    Nathan "SnaKKer" Miller-
    My friend, Nathan Miller, for being the total Nintendo fan, although
    he now likes Sonic the Hedgehog (my FAV videogame hero!), too. More
    thanx for the ideas he gave me, and for being my web buddy. Also, he
    and I currently working on some N64 FAQs together... Sounds cool, no?
    John Westenhover-
    Thanx to John for coming over to my house, allowing me to play this
    game more! Also for all the times we had playing computer together!
    ;) Even more thanx for the fun we had taping crazy films together when
    he came over!
    Elizabeth Westenhover-
    Thanx for being my friend, and for the fun times we had playing Hugo's
    House of Horrors and King's Quest at her and John's house!
    Crazy Gloveman-
    Thanx, Crazy, for just being crazy and totally insane due to your
    constant overdose of sugar! :| Also for half of the great entertainment
    on Sunday nights! ;) 
    He is the other half of the entertainment on Sundays! Also for being a
    great friend, and for all the jokes and fun times we have every week!
    James Tunnell-
    For being a friend, and for the hilarious times we always have at
    restaurants. His request is that he be put down as the "Coolest Guy
    on Earth". Well, here it is! ;) Also, *many* thanx to him (extreme
    sarcasm) for his *kind* (more sarcasm) suggestion that I ask Emily
    out, IN FRONT OF EMILY. >;( Hmph. Like I'll ever ask any girl out,
    much more Emily. Yeah, right. When pigs fly...
    Emily Lee-
    Due to a small mix-up, I didn't put her name in the Special Thanx
    section of Version 5.0. :( Sorry, Emily! :) Anyways, she likes
    Nintendo, the 'net, and something I won't say, since she asked me not
    to. She is also a big annoyance to me, sometimes bugging me worse than
    my sister (Betho- see below)! I might also ask her some questions for
    the N64 FAQs "SnaKKer" (Nathan Miller) and I may do together. Another
    thing is that she is the Emily from the James/Emily/Me (Nathan Tsui)
    incident above, in the James Tunnell section. :| She is also my
    sister's friend, and when they get together, it's enough to make me go
    into hiding! ;) (read Betho's section below for more on that)
    Tiny Tim the Terrible-
    Tiny Tim, also known as T4, for doing absolutely NOTHING! Thanx for the
    fun we have whenever I visit him, and for letting me drive the four-
    wheeler! =) His name is kind of ironic, though, because he's not that
    tiny. :o Thanx, T4!
    Matthew Harris-
    Thanx for all the fun we had together playing outside during the past
    summers! ;)
    Bethany "Betho" Tsui-
    Thanx, Betho, for being a total nuisance, as most sisters and younger
    girls are. :( REAL thanx for NOT bugging me while I was typing this! :)
    She is also the second loudest screamer I know, after her friend, Emily
    Lee (see above). Ouch! >;o By the way, Betho and Emily, that's *not* a
    compliment! Thanx, Betho!
    PiKa085- (PiKa085@aol.com)
    He told me what the option that comes after Boss Butch is and let me
    use it in my FAQ! He is also the author of the best All-Kirby-Game
    Guide on the 'net! Check out his Ultimate Kirby FAQ at GameFAQs.com for
    the best FAQ on almost all Kirby games (if you found mine, you can
    find his). Way to go, PiKa085!
    Matthew "Kirbymaniac" Danyeur- (mattdanyeur@mindspring.com)
    He told me how to kill Batamon and that you can use the Umbrella to
    float to the ground. Also a ton of other info. Thanx, Matt!
    Magus 666- (Saga440841@aol.com)
    This guy sent me the awesomest info: the much sought-after Kirby-
    Batamon showdown! OK, so it ain't that dramatic...still, it's cool!
    Way to go, Magus!
    YOU, the Reader!-
    Thanx again for reading the whole FAQ, including this section! Hope to
    hear from you! My e-mail address is segaholic2@yahoo.com (like I
    haven't said that already >;) ). Catch me on AOL Instant Messenger! My
    handle is Segaholic2.
    Last of all, NO thanks at ALL to Bill Gates and Microsoft! You don't
    know how many times I got this "Not enough memory available to complete
    this operation. Quit one or more applications to increase available
    memory, and then try again." message, trying to type this document into
    Notepad. HA! NOT ENOUGH MEMORY?! I have 32 megs of RAM, and it says I
    don't have enough memory to type some lousy words onto one of the
    simplest text applications?! I must have quit and re-opened this
    document 100 or more times, typing in five words or so at a time,
    trying to finish this thing. Phbt. The problem finally got so big I had
    to copy the whole FAQ into Microsoft Word and finish it there using
    Courier New font. I bet I could have completed this FAQ in half the
    time on a Mac. Unfortunately, I don't have one with 'net connections.
    Oh, well, maybe later...
