Rock Star - Stage 4
Rock Star - Stage 4 is the fourth stage of Rock Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. The stage takes place inside a massive obelisk-like structure lined with what may be ancient advanced technology.
The stage begins outside in the desert. Off in the distance, a large black pyramid can be seen. As Kirby approaches it, it begins to rise out of the sand, revealing a much more complicated structure. Kirby will eventually make his way to the base of the alien structure, and get on an elevator to enter it.
The next area is an ascent using the elevator. Kirby will have to dodge Wall Shotzo blasts along the way.
The following room has several crystalline conveyors that move through the walls. Kirby will have to wait for a gap in the belt to move upward, but should be careful not to get crushed by them. At the top, some Spark-is guard the hole in the ceiling that leads to the next room.
The next area is a small dark room. Adeleine can be seen here, looking at something in the background that can't quite be discerned.
The next room is full of Switches. To press them, Kirby has to duck on them. It's not necessary to push any in order to move forward, however.
The next room is a wide open area inside the structure, with lots of moving platforms. Just like before, Kirby should try not to get crushed here. At the top, another moving platform will take Kirby to the next room.
In the following room, Kirby must fight a mid-boss version of Spark-i. Defeating it causes a crystal shard to appear, and opens the way upward.
The final area is a tall tower, where Kirby has to climb poles that Bivolts patrol. The stage exit can be found through a hole in the ceiling.
Crystal Shard guide
|Crystal Shard locations in Rock Star - Stage 4|
|Image||How to reach|
|The first Crystal Shard can be found in a room with shifting platform belts. Kirby will have to be careful not to be crushed by them as he moves toward the shard's location.|
|The second shard can be found in a room with a bunch of switches. In the prior room, Adeleine can be seen overlooking some dark portraits, which Kirby can illuminate using Bomb-Spark. This will give him the hint he needs to press the right sequence of switches by ducking on them (note that the solution is randomized each time the stage is started). Doing so will cause the shard to appear.|
|The third shard can be collected after defeating the Mid-Boss Spark-i.|
