|Kirby Super Star Ultra high session 1 continued|
World 5, Milky Way Wishes
The atmosphere of those Meta Knight Revenge stages were even more amazing than the latter half of the Great Cave, but even that was nothing compared to how amazing and full of magic that CG cutscene at the beginning of Milky Way was.
Holy crap, this mode is way different. I don't remember this very well at all. Instead of getting abilities temporarily from enemies and pickups, you get "Copy Essence Deluxe" pickups that permanently add an ability to your inventory and you can switch to it any time like in a Zelda game. The stage select map is like Star Fox 2, and I guess you need to go around to all the stages (in any order) and collect all the abilities and then you'll be able to do the final stage and stop the sun and moon from fighting.
Oh wow... and the level design gets even better too... this one stage, Grass Planet Floria, has doors that take you to different seasons of the same stage layout. it ends with the Double Wispy fight again, only it's autumn this time.
Water Planet Aquarius
omg wtf dude... this stage has the best background scenery yet.
After the boss, when you get the sword power, there's a stained glass depiction of the sun and moon...
Also I guess I need to come back here after I get fire.
lmao what's with this water current maze at the end... jeez
Another boss refight. I guess all the levels in this mode end with boss refights.
Flame Planet Hotbeat
hmm... I didn't end up getting anything here... I dunno I feel like there's something in that crazy mine cart section with all the switches that the minecarts activate which change around the lava/wall structure, but I can't figure it out...
Wind Planet Skyhigh
Very fun, straighforward level... a boss refight at the end. Got all the abilities here easily.
Cave Planet Cavius
That was easy... a simple cave maze filled with minibosses... and a boss refight at the end. Got all the abilities here easily.
Machine Planet Mekkius
Another big miniboss maze after the main switch puzzle section.. I got 2/3 of the abilities here.
Eternal Planet Half Moon
A very straightforward level with only 2 ability essences to find. The first section is a minecard maze with a really pretty starry path.
The boss at the end of this was actually different though... it's another RPG boss like in Meta Knight's Revenge, except there's a big knight and a bigger dragon to fight against.
Final stage: Galactic Nova
Going into this last level with 13/19 abilities found. I'm definitely gonna need to revisit this mode (as well as Great Cave Offensive) later on to 100% complete it, but for now I'll finish the game.
Marx was behind everything all along. He made the sun & moon fight, and then got Kirby to go out into space to find the wish making nova machine and he used it to wish to take over Pop Star... Kirby went onto a warp star and chased it down and destroyed the Nova in a sidescrolling shooter stage (with really neat 2.5d effects), and then defeated Marx. That was really easy.
But... that's not the end of Kirby Super Star Ultra.
Now I've unlocked 2 new modes: "Revenge of the King" and "The Arena".
and then after that there's "Meta Knightmare Ultra" and "Helper to Hero"
