Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Tips

Protect from the dynamite explosion!
To get a dynamite, you need to combine bomb and rock. However, the dynamite can hurt you if you're close enough and can deal tons of damage to you. (might kill you after just a few mistakes of being too close) To protect yourself, after you throw the dynamite, hold down the Down button on the Control pad. (Not the Control stick, since the control pad is used to navigate through the game instead of the Control stick) If you do so while the dynamite is in use and hasn't exploded yet, Kirby will pull out a yellow helmet with a white stripe and a green "+" and protect himself from the dynamite explosion. Doing so won't deal any damage when the dynamite explodes, even if Kirby is right next to it. (funky huh?)
