|Sandy Canyon - Stage 7
The Kirbys storm through the sandstorm.
Sandy Canyon - Stage 7 is a stage in Sandy Canyon, from Kirby Mass Attack. 5 Kirbys are needed to enter the stage.
The stage begins out in the wastes. Here, the Kirbys will have to contend with regular sandstorms, having to avoid it at its harshest by ducking into crevices. This path goes on for a long while, until the Kirbys can bust open a way downward at the end of the path.
This leads to a ruin area, where the Kirbys will have to contend with conveyed Star Blocks, then more sandstorms in the halls. Battling this storm, the Kirbys need to progress further right until they can reach a way out of the ruins. From there, the stage exit awaits.
The following are the locations of each medal in Sandy Canyon - Stage 7, including Daroach's hints and more details where applicable.
|Medal locations in Sandy Canyon - Stage 7
|How to reach
|Enter the area with the windy sandstorm with 10 Kirbys. Otherwise, you'll need to pass up a medal in plain sight.
|This medal can be found in a small grotto underneath the sandstorm. To get it, all 10 Kirbys are needed to weigh down a platform.
|If you eat Jumbo Candy, you can charge right through the windy sandstorm. Watch the space above you for metal blocks as you run. There's supposed to be a row of them blocking the way to a medal. They're hard to spot, maybe even out of sight. You'll need to reach the blocks fast if you want to smash them during your jumbo rampage. If you see any items, grab them quickly. Those sandstorms blow everything around--not just enemies, but also treasure.
|Along the sandstorm path, a number of Metal Block formations can be seen. If the Kirbys wait here for a sandstorm to pass, a Jumbo Candy will appear. Using this, the Kirbys can run through the storm, then make their way to a series of platform steps leading to metal blocks in the ceiling which the Kirbys can break through. A side chamber can be accessed here, where another sandstorm will reveal the medal on wings and a bunch of apples. The Kirbys must collect the medal before the next sandstorm comes.
|Normally, you never want to let the sinking sands drag you under. But in the area with the windy sandstorm, you might just want to dive on in.
|Back out of the cave on the sandstorm path, the Kirbys can see a Skull Key underfoot. To reach this key, the Kirbys will need to jump into a quicksand pit immediately to the right, which will deposit them into a grotto under the key, letting them climb up to get it. From there, it's a battle with the Skull Gang to get the medal.
|It's hard to find shelter from the windy sandstorm. It even rushes into the ruins. I've heard there's a medal in the ruins that is nearly impossible to get with all that sand rushing past. But take your time. I'm sure that you can do it!
|In the ruins, the Kirbys have to race against the sandstorm, and find the Rainbow Medal situated in a crevice guarded by a stone block. The Kirbys will likely need to make multiple passes to break it open before the sandstorm blows them away.
|Hopefully you'll be able to hang on to a full crew of 10 Kirbys throughout the windy-sandstorm area. You'll need them to pull on a ring to access a chest. Getting the key is no breeze either. It's defended by a prickly guard.
|In the ruins, a Key can be collected near the start by felling a Big Stactus. Further in, the Kirbys have to break through a stone block while fighting the sandstorm. Past the block is a chain which can be pulled if all 10 Kirbys are present, which will release a treasure chest containing the medal.
