@ludist210 I did that. And it worked for a few stages. And then I did it again and it didn't work, and the gate is still in my way and my gem above it is only 1/4 filled in as opposed to the gems above the stages where the gates did disappear, which are completely filled in. Also there is a cd above the gem and I have no idea WTF that does for progression, if anything. I only have the first stage's cd filled in.
Also what happens if you run out of time and then gems when trying to get back. Did you just waste your time playing the level?
Yeah I too tried playing WL4 and wasn't really sure what was going on. I see the similarities with Shake It, but the game is still kind of...disorienting, somehow. Then I turned into a zombie or something and...yeah. I was done.
Man, the 3DS VC blows. It's been almost a year since the system came out and there's nothing to play. Wii already had like 150 games by now.
You need four keys per level--in each of the four levels in that world--to open up the path to the boss. Also hidden in each stage is a CD, which you can listen to in the Sound Room. But it's not the stage's music, it's some really weird ambient noise that's somewhat nightmare-inducing. What an incentive!
Once you open the way to the boss, you have a limited amount of time to kill it and nab all the treasures. Go fast enough and you can get all three! But they'll disappear one by one (before your very eyes) if you take too long. That's where the medals/shop come in. You can use cash to win medals, which will let you buy weapons at the shop that automatically deal damage to the boss. They're pricey, but a good way to guarantee you'll get all three treasures when beating them (although I'd suggest running in and fighting and losing a couple times to get an idea of how to win--there's no penalty for losing outright).
Yeah, the keys take the form of those diamond things. To get to the next STAGE (i.e. 1-2 after 1-1), you just have to beat the previous level (hit the frog then leave). To get the boss door of that world to open, though, you need to get all 4 keys in each stage of that world (so 16 total per world). It's a weird game, but I've always enjoyed it. Some of the levels/powers can be a little disorienting at times though.
It breaks my heart that Japan has already gotten WL2 and we haven't gotten the first. Besides Shake It, WL1 and 2 are my favorites, and my WL2 battery doesn't save. WL3 actually was pretty disappointing for me.
Oh yeah, that part too. Sorry, I played through it then put it away (however that works digitally). It wasn't all that memorable, but it wasn't that bad either. Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, however...miserable. So far anyway.
