Kirby Wave Ride
|Ride the waves and win the race!|
— Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
Kirby Wave Ride is one of the Sub-Games available from the start of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. The sub-game pits four Kirbys (pink, yellow, red, green) in a nighttime surfing competition on Warp Stars. Kirby Wave Ride could have been inspired by the Nintendo GameCube title, Kirby Air Ride.
Kirby Wave Ride is a basic surfing race where the objective is to cross the end goal first. It only requires the use of the A button, which enables Kirby to jump. Kirby must exercise timed jumps while when at the peak of a wave, as he gains a speed boost from doing so. If Kirby jumps too often, he slows down. Depending on the timing of Kirby's jump, a colored text briefly pops up, reading "Good", "Great", or "Excellent".
After passing the goal, the player can press the L or R button to view the progress of the CPU opponents racing (although this is not mentioned on the instructions screen).
the player can choose between three difficulty levels. The speed in which Kirby's opponents race at depends on the level difficulty. The time span per each level also increases, as Level 1 occurs for about 35-45 seconds, level 2 occurs at around 45-55 seconds, and Level 3 is almost a minute-long race.
- The game's official Japanese website has a wallpaper based on Kirby Wave Ride. This is also the case with the other two Sub-Games, Crackity Hack and Speed Eaters.
