Neo Star - Stage 2 is the second stage of Neo Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It takes place inside a massive cavern complex with signs of mining activity.


The stage begins with Kirby falling from a large crack in the ceiling into the cave proper. Along the way, he can collect some goodies floating in the air. The way to the next area is down below.

Kirby falls into a mine cart, which Waddle Dee will start pushing. Once it gets going, he hops in, and the two of them ride down the path. Along the way, several jumps will need to be made to ensure the cart does not crash or fall into the void below. At the end of the track, the cart meets a break in the rail, which causes Kirby and Waddle Dee to tumble into the chasm below.

Kirby lands in a deep area of the cave, and must progress to the right past several more enemies.

In the next area, Kirby will have to progress on slippery pillars past Shotzos and Drops looking to get the drop on him.

The following area is another walkway through the open cave. The path is pocked with holes filled with water, which have various things in them.

From there, Kirby must deal with a flood of Drops in a small chamber before pressing on.

The last section of the cave has Kirby running past moving pillars that vie to crush him. The stage exit can be found at the end of this path.
