Paletto Polis is the third stage of Neo Greo in Kirby: Canvas Curse. Kirby must travel through Paletto Polis on his quest to battle the witch, Drawcia. When played as the third stage, Kirby will have a choice in the Boss Game with King Dedede, Kracko, or Paint Roller. Paletto Polis shares design elements with Tiny Town.
|Area / map
|Most travel is done with automatically moving pads, cannons, and tunnels. Enemies in this area include Bouncies, Bronto Burts, Rockies, and Shotzos. Besides the enemies, the only hazard present is an array of blocks which electrocute Kirby.
The scant few Point Stars are collected while riding one of the green pads. A 1Up can be obtained by tapping the Star Block, which will cause it to fall on spikes if not timed correctly to collect it as it falls.
This area also appears as the Time Trial challenge in Rainbow Run. The green pads that served to cradle Kirby and carry him around move too slowly to be of use in this challenge.
|The first medal can be obtained by traveling through a round-trip door underneath the first vertical passage at the start. However, to get into the door, the Big Switch in Cold Course must first be pressed.
|This is one of the most complex areas of the game. Color Shutters and the corresponding interfaces are separated. Kirby will progress and open little more of the area by using Bomb Blocks, and backtrack extensively. The hazards of the area include blocks that become spiked blocks at intervals, but are safe to touch otherwise. These blocks are used often and in one shaft, staggered arrays of them can be found. The open pit for this area is partially in a barrier that prevents use of Rainbow Ink. Bouncies, Bronto Burts, Waddle Dees, and point stars are moderately plentiful, with some being inside blocks that disappear on contact.
This area appears as the Line Trial challenge of Rainbow Run. Even the lowest medal reward is difficult to obtain and may require planning.
|The second medal can be obtained after unlocking the way to the yellow Color Shutter in the middle of the area. Kirby will need to take a side passage above this room from the upper-left corner through a dangerous hall of spikes to press a switch that releases the medal in the central room to be collected.
|The area begins scrolling on its own, and Kirby could be fatally squashed between the margin and any objects. The area has many large star blocks, which must be destroyed quickly before the scrolling screen smashes Kirby into it. Kirby can obtain the Beam Copy Ability from Waddle Doo to eliminate the blocks faster. Other enemies in this area include Waddle Dees, Bouncies, and Shotzos.
Various goodies, including Energy Drinks and 1-Ups can be found positioned atop star blocks in this area. The stage does not allow backtracking, as it continuously pans.
|The last medal can be found just after the stage exit. Kirby will need to hop over the exit quickly to reach it without being forced through.
