Star Slam Heroes is a Sub-Game in Kirby Star Allies. It involves four Kirbys aiming to hit crashing meteors back as hard as they possibly can using a baseball bat.

Tutorial

The game takes place in a splitscreen set-up, with one Kirby occupying each screen. Kirbys who are not controlled by human players will instead be controlled by the CPU. Once the game starts, contestants have five seconds to build up power by stopping the meter gauge a certain number of times depending on difficulty. Once the five seconds are up, the meteors approach, and contestants have to try to match the circle icons on screen to hit them away. If they miss, they get hit by the meteor and lose the game.

Based on how well each stage is timed, the meteors will fly out a certain distance measured in light years, crashing through obstacles on the way. The winner is whoever hits their meteor the furthest.

Levels

There are three difficulty levels in Star Slam Heroes, ranked from easy to difficult:

  • Town Crisis
  • Country Crisis
  • World Crisis

In higher difficulty levels, Kirbys have to fill more power gauges, the guages move faster, and the meteors are arriving faster as well. To reach the perfect high score, the player must reach maximum of every power gauge and aim the meteor circle perfectly.

Country Crisis and World Crisis cannot be played until Town Crisis is cleared. To complete this sub-game, the player must be ranked 3rd or higher in World Crisis, which contributes 3% to 100% Completion. The first two levels don't count any percentage, i.e. Country Crisis is not required for 100% Completion at all.

Level Unlock Requirement 100% Completion Percentage Number of Power Gauges Perfect High Score
Town Crisis Available at start None 1 3000
Country Crisis Clear Town Crisis None 3 7000
World Crisis 3% 5 9999

Trivia

  • The music used in this game is a remix of the Nebula Belt course theme from Kirby Air Ride, arranged by Yuta Ogasawara.
  • Technically speaking, the speed at which the meteors can travel after they are hit is impossible, as nothing can travel faster than light.
  • If Kirby manages to get a practically perfect hit, his meteor will slam into a U.F.O. at the end of the line.
  • If Kirby misses the meteor, his pose at the scoring screen will be him knocked down with a band-aid on his cheek.
