Description

KIRBY 64: The Crystal Shards brings one of Nintendo's most-loved franchises to the Nintendo 64. The game is something of a 3D platformer, though the camera and path are limited, so it does not require endless exploration. Kirby himself can transform into all kinds of objects, each of which allow him to achieve a different goal. The player must use each power in the right way to solve the puzzles that are introduced. The graphics in the game are bright and colorful, making the game enjoyable for gamers of any age. In addition to the Single-Player quest, there is a Multiplayer option that allows up to four players to fight in a variety of games. KIRBY 64: The Crystal Shards is a game that is easy and fun enough for a child to play, yet challenging and deep enough that even the most hardcore gamer can have a tough time with it.

Some people may not know this

Some people may not know this, but you can use powers against the final boss (forgot his name). However, like only hurts like. For example, ice against ice, cutter against cutter, flame against flame, and so on.

POEM: My Love for Kirby
by pamela 21 May 2008

Delusional
I believe I can cure it all for you, dear
Coax or trick or drive or
drag the demons from you
Make it right for you sleeping beauty
Truly thought
I can magically heal you

You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
Failing miserably to rescue

Sleeping Beauty

Drunk on ego
Truly thought I could make it right
If I kissed you one more time to
Help you face the nightmare
But you're far too poisoned for me
Such a fool to think that I can wake you from your slumber
That I could actually heal you..

Sleeping Beauty
Poisoned and hopeless
You're far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
Failing miserably to find a way to comfort you

Far beyond a visible sign of your awakening
And hiding from some poisoned memory

Poisoned and hopeless
Sleeping Beauty

If you want to beat the shark boss, the best combo to have is the the missiles.(Bomb/Bomb)

 

Some call it a puffball, some call it a marshmallow, but most people prefer to simply call it Kirby. He might be puffy, but this guy is all hero. Kirby has come to the Nintendo 64 full of eye catching color and amazing detail. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is awash in the cheerful colors beloved of school lunch-box designers from Sapporo  to Kyoto. The backstory scores high on the cute-o-meter, too, with Kirby and friends valiantly fighting to save the peaceful fairy folk of Ripple Star from the marauding Dark Matter. 

Fans of Super Mario RPG will recognize similar plot elements from that Super NES classic, as Kirby and friends must round up six pieces of a shattered magical crystal in order to set things right. 

The story is secondary to one of the most memorable video-game characters to grace any platform. As in earlier Game Boy and Super NES (Kirby's Dream Land 3) incarnations, Kirby has the amazing power to inhale enemies, acquire their attacks, then unleash them in brilliant new ways. 

After inhaling a fiery enemy, Kirby can make a red-hot run through the opposition. After inhaling a rock enemy, Kirby can don a stony shield and bowl over the competition. Swallowing two similar enemies ratchets up Kirby's power even more. 

Kirby 64 is primarily a 2D platformer, with Kirby following a track left, right, up and down through picture-perfect landscapes strongly reminiscent of Yoshi's Story. Besides permitting gorgeous graphics, the 2D approach allows developer HAL Laboratories (Pokmon Stadium) to concentrate on the play control, which brilliantly conveys the feeling of Kirby flying, floating, rolling and swimming.
