Nature Notch - Stage 3 is the third stage of Nature Notch in Kirby: Squeak Squad.


This stage consists of seven main areas. It starts with Kirby falling from the building in the previous level, as the background shifts from night to day. Kirby lands in a florid field and can proceed from here.

Kirby finds himself on an open path, as a Wheelie can be seen revving up against a wall to the right. Using its power, Kirby can speed his way through this area, displacing any enemies that happen to get in the way. At the end, past some ineffectual obstacles, is a large Bomb Block barricade hiding the door forward.

The next area is another plain section, but with a chamber pocket in the ground and floating platforms above. In the underground chamber, past a spike barrier, is a large Treasure Chest. Above is a bubble containing the Wheel ability, if Kirby does not still have it. If Kirby puts two and two together, he can obtain the chest, but doing so causes the Squeaks to appear, this time led by Doc. The path continues to the right, up and down hills, which will be swarming with Squeakers if Kirby picked up the chest, but they too can be ridden down.

From there, Kirby finds a grassy grotto which leads downward. A chest can be seen to the right, guarded by a Bomb Block barrier. Kirby will need an ability that allows him to hit the Bomb Block itself in order to access the chest.

The next area starts at the bottom of a stone shaft, in a desert-like area; climbing out and heading right leads to an encounter with the Mid-Boss Gao Gao. Defeating and swallowing it yields Kirby the Animal ability. From there, the path opens up to a large dirt field, where Kirby can dig around for treasure.

This is followed by another dirt field, this one much deeper than the last. Enemies patrol some of the pockets in the dirt, so Kirby should mind where he digs. At sufficient depth, a Treasure Chest can be found in the dirt. There is another path down which doesn't require the use of the Animal ability, but it cannot lead to the chest.

The last area is an underground series of passages, where the Squeaks appear once again to harass Kirby. Our pink hero will have to navigate the maze-like series of chambers while avoiding Doc and his minions in order to keep his spoils. The stage exit can be found to the top-right, out in the fresh air.
