Star Catcher is one of the four bonus games in Kirby's Block Ball. It can be accessed by touching a Warp Star in a regular round.

The game takes place in a Boss-style room with four paddles. Kirby jumps into the middle and starts spitting out stars and bombs. The objective is to catch the stars while avoiding the bombs. Getting hit by a bomb causes the game to automatically end.

The number of 1-Ups gained in this game depends on the number of stars caught. Every set of ten grants a 1-Up, with up to thirty stars in total.
