Snack Tracks is one of the Sub-Games in Kirby Super Star Ultra, and is available from the start of the game. As with the other Sub-Games, Kirby Snack Tracks is played from the lower screen. The Sub-Game is playable in both single player and multiplayer, where up to four players can play via a wireless connection.[1] Two players can also play from a single Game Card.[2] In single player, the player has the option to select from three difficulty levels.

Gameplay

Gameplay of Snack Tracks

The game pits four Kirbys (pink, yellow, red, green) in a reaction and observation-style feeding game. Each Kirby is sitting below a conveyor belt of their color. Their objective is eating as much food[3] and Maxim Tomatoes (worth twice as many points) coming down from their conveyor belts within 60 seconds (one minute). By eating food, the Kirbys receive points, and their current score is displayed on the top screen.

Kirby must avoid eating bugs (which sometimes appear in a Maxim Tomato), bombs and rocks, as they deduct points. The player can eliminate bugs by tapping them with the stylus once, or twice for rocks. Tapping a bomb does not eliminate it but instead tosses it to another belt. By tossing a bomb around too much, it eventually explodes on a Kirby's track, all of the incoming food on the Kirby's conveyor belt is eliminated. The player must be careful to not tap food, as this also eliminates them.

After the first 30 seconds passes, the competitors and their conveyor belts shuffle positions. The Kirby who ends with the most points wins.

Scoring

A combo of Food and Maxim Tomatoes add a variable bonus amount.
