— Summary • Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition (Translated from Japanese)

Kirby's Super Star Stacker is the official English title given to a Kirby game released on Japan's Super Famicom system.[3] It is a remake of Kirby's Star Stacker, which is known in Japan under exactly the same name as the remake. The game was originally released as a new title for the Nintendo Power flash RAM service, but was later released in standard cartridge form. It was intended for international release, but the SNES's lifespan ended in North America and Europe before the game could be localized in either region.[4]

In it, the main modes of play are Story, Time Attack, Round Clear, and V.S. mode.

Story

As Mr. Star soars across the night sky, King Dedede gets an idea for a prank. He blasts Mr. Star out of the sky with his cannon, shattering Mr. Star into various pieces and scattering them across Dream Land. Kirby soon finds Mr. Star and agrees to help him get his pieces back, similar to what happened in the Game Boy version.

Gameplay

Blocks fall in pairs from the top of the play area. There are three types of blocks (called "friends" in the game), based on Kirby's friends from Kirby's Dream Land 2: Rick the hamster, Coo the owl, and Kine the fish. The object of the game is to score stars by placing one or more stars between two matching friends, which causes the friends and the stars to disappear, adding to the score total.

Modes

Kirakira

The Menu

  • Story: Progress through the game's main story.
  • V.S.: With a second controller, one can battle a friend in this mode.
  • Time Attack: See how many stars the player can collect within three minutes.
  • Round Clear: Collect stars to defeat King Dedede.
  • Challenge: Eliminate as many stars as possible before the stack of blocks reaches the top of the screen.

There is a high score table for the Challenge, Story, and Time Attack modes, showing the top five scores for both modes.

Bosses

In Story, every boss yields a star piece. Kirby must beat each boss in order to progress, much like in platforming Kirby titles. If the player beats each boss without using a continue, he/she can get a "Perfect Star."
