Iceberg - Stage 3 is the third stage of Iceberg in Kirby's Dream Land 3. This stage features the mini-game What was that sound?.


The stage begins out on a glacial slope. Along this slippery path, a side-chamber can be accessed where Coo, Nago and Pitch are waiting. The path continues past perilous pillars of ice to reach the door on the other side.

The door leads to another icy precipice. This leads into a water channel, where the screen begins to auto-scroll. The path leads past numerous Kapar, and near the end, also involves boulders of ice that move back and forth. The door to the next area lies just above the water at the end of the path.

The door leads to another icy high-rise, which will take Kirby down a path of breakaway ice blocks, then back up and over. Along the way, Rick and Kine can be recovered from a side-chamber. A legion of Wapod and Gordos guard the door to the next area.

The door leads to a small area where Chef Kawasaki can be found. He offers the last Sub-Game by tossing Gordos out onto a cliff of ice. When they land, they make a particular sound, then Kawasaki hits another Gordo with his frying pan, making a similar sound to one of the prior Gordos. Kirby then has to guess which Gordo that was. This goes on for up to three rounds, but Kirby does not have to win the game to progress.

The door leads to a large body of water with icy platforms dispersed. Kirby will have to hop these platforms and/or swim to the end, dodging Glunks and Icicles along the way. The stage exit can then be reached on the other side.

In the last room, Kawasaki will give Kirby a Heart Star if he got all the guesses right.

Heart Star guide[edit]

Kirby will need to remember the sounds he hears from the falling Gordos, so he can choose the one that matches the Gordo nearest to Kawasaki.
Main article: What was that sound?

Kirby will bump into Chef Kawasaki along the path, who will provide him with the last Sub-Game. This game consists of three rounds. In each round, Kawasaki tosses out five Gordos, which will then each make a specific sound, one after the other. Kawasaki then bangs his pan on a sixth Gordo, making the same sound as one of the previous Gordos. Kirby has to guess which Gordo made that particular sound. If Kirby gets all three guesses right, Kawasaki will reward him with a Heart Star at the end of the stage.
