Shiver Star showcases its five snowy, chilling stages.

The Shiver Star is the fifth planet out of seven visited by Kirby and Ribbon in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. The planet's surface is covered with snow, with an underlayer of ice that can be seen through. Howevever, it is not frozen solid as there are patches of holes in the ice which Kirby can go into in order to get a Crystal Shard in stage 5-1. Stage 5-2 resides on the clouds, which is reached when Kirby is shot to the sky by a Zebon. In this stage, Kirby has to dodge flying enemies, electrical shocks, and the jaws of Maws. Once Kirby's sky adventure is over, he discovers stage 5-3, a twelve-story shopping mall filled the with enemies on every floor. Kirby must find a way to survive each floor and climb to the top to reach the end of the stage. It should be noted that each floor has different types of enemies; such as electrical or spike, and that they do not appear on other floors; except for Glom, which appears on two floors. The second to last stage is 5-4, an underground factory with many Wall Shotzos and vertically-moving walls which try to crush Kirby. He must carefully navigate through the factory and past the traps inside in order to move on to the planet boss, HR-H.

Like in all worlds of The Crystal Shards, the first four stages within the Shiver Star hide three Crystal Shards, while the final stage rewards only one after the defeat of the boss. Nevertheless, all shards within one level need not to be collected before Kirby is granted access to the next; Kirby must simply complete the level.

Trivia

Earth's likeness seen on the Shiver Star.
  • The connection between the Shiver Star and Earth in terms of appearance has been quite the popular topic of conversation within the Kirby forum conmmunity, and rightly so, as one can see from the image apparent outlines of Earth's continents in white upon the face of the Shiver Star. However, it is unclear what the developers of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards had in mind when creating such a star in Earth's likeness.
