Dig and Dash
Dig and Dash is the first stage of the level Yellow Dunes in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In this stage, Kirby ventures through underground ruins. Keys, metal balls, and soft sand are introduced in this level. The enemies Drill Cotta, Grindarr, and Mega Grindarr first appear in this level.
Completing the stage unlocks Deploy the Kirby Tank!.
The level begins in the desert. Kirby digs through soft clay within the area until he reaches a cannon that fires him underground.
In the area following, Kirby encounters numerous Drill Cotta. After he obtains a key, Kirby uses it to unlock the gate and continue downward to the next area.
Next, Kirby comes across a couple Grindarrs in this area, as well as a time-challenge door.
In the area after, several short puzzles are completed by Kirby to unblock a Mega Grindarr's path downwards, which also allows Kirby to continue to the next area.
Here, a door leading to a puzzle room is located, with no other obstacles.
After Kirby enters into the next area, multiple larger sized Drill Cotta attack him from above. Once Kirby reaches the bottom, he uses a cannon to make his escape to the surface.
Once the surface is reached, Kirby completes the level by using the roulette wheel.
|Treasure Chest locations in Dig and Dash|
|Treasure||How to reach|
|Just past the locked gate leading downward in the second area, there is a large room filled with sand, where several puzzle pieces must be quickly collected by Kirby to obtain the Treasure Chest.|
Treasure 2: Top Ride Medley Music
|In the third area, a door to a challenge room can be found furthest to the right inside a block of sand. Kirby must complete the aforementioned time-challenge in this area to obtain the treasure chest.|
Treasure 3: Grindarr Figurine
|Shortly after Mega Grindarr starts his descent, the path splits in two, with Gray Zones and food found on either side. Taking the path on the right here leads to a room with two Grindarrs poised over sand at differing height. The player will need to erase some of the sand holding the right Grindarr up, then move Kirby around past the key and then quickly slide him under the Grindarrs before they fall to get the chest.|
Treasure 4: Drill Cotta Figurine
|This chest is locked away by three separate gates that require keys to open. To get all three, Kirby will need to have visited both of the paths mentioned in the previous treasure guide, likely needing to use a Star Dash to rocket back up after completing one side to get to the other. The third key is obtained in a hidden chamber nearer to the doors on the left side. Here, a small puzzle involving a marble needs to be solved to get the third key.|
Treasure 5: Space Area Music
|Near the end of the fifth area, after disembarking from Mega Grindarr, a batch of sand in a ceiling alcove can be cleared away to reveal a hidden doorway. Entering this door leads to a puzzle room involving a marble, which the player needs to impart enough momentum to in order to hit the switch and open the way to this chest.|
The following enemies appear in this stage:
|Big Drill Cotta|
A Grindarr falls at the end of this hall, revealing a Launch Cannon.
