[edit] Backround

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (A.K.A. Kirby of the Stars) is a 2.5D (2D gameplay and 3D graphics) Kirby game and is the first Kirby game to have 3D graphics. This game is believed to be the direct sequel to Kirby's Dream Land 3 on the Super Nintendo. This game's gameplay is the usual platforming you'd expect from a Kirby game. But instead of having a single copy ability you can take to abilities and put them together to make a better ability with traits of the two powers you mixed, giving you hundreds of abilities. Kirby must travel through the universe obtaining scattered crystal shards. There is 3-4 levels in a world then a boss.

[edit] Plot

On the distant planet of Ripple Star, faerie like creatures live in piece. Then mysterious Dark Creatures appear to take control of the planet. Then a girl named Ribbon escapes with the planets relic, a Crystal and sets out for refuge and help. But the Dark Creatures attack her and makes her crash land in Dreamland. (A.K.A. Pop Star) While crash landing the Crystal breaks in to many pieces. But she finds Kirby and asks him to help her the Crystal Shards. Then they set off. They eventually find their friends Waddle Dee, King Dedede and Adeliene.
