Kirby & Magolor: Huge Trouble! is a 3D platforming Kirby game made by Gear Games for the Evo-Gem home console. Unlike other Kirby 3D platforming games, the stages have various objectives instand of just reaching the goal, and have regular bosses in normal stages.
Various mechanics from previous Kirby games returns as well, such as the Helper/Friend system and most of the Friend Abilities, as well as several new ones. It also centers around on a bigger scale adventure, both in metaphorical (more worlds to explore) and literal in term of size, such as Giant Enemies, Giant Bosses, and Giant Kirby alongside the Giant Abilities.
The gameplay is the same as a Kirby 3D platforming game, but also with returning and new mechanics mentioned at above. Instand of just reaching the goal, Kirby must first clear one or two objectives before having access to the goal itself. Shall the players didn't accomplish those objectives, the goal door will remain locked.
Most levels are wide sandbox levels, and rarely in linear levels. It also have Free Play mode, where the player(s) can play the level without objectives and even bring computer players for a competition for the highest score.
Some levels have either one of the five Super Abilities, the Hypernova Ability, the Robobot Armor or a Giant Stardle Dee. When there is one Giant Stardle Dee, there is also one of the five Giant Abilities obtained from a respective Giant Enemy.
Unlike the previous games, in order to reach 100% in Adventure and Helpers to Heroes, as the player(s) must collect the Element Crystals in order to advance in the next world, they also must rescue Waddle Dees (the enemy type are blue-colored) and there are 71 in all. Each Waddle Dees have a specific hat and a surname, as well as cutesy description. There are no Waddle Dees to rescue in the X-Star.
In this game, there are eight playable characters in the Adventure, six of them unlocked by default, two of them unlocked after beating the Giant Boss of Kiwi Canyon.
Some enemies have missing images. Any hep will be appreciated.

|"Don't you try to intefere with my invasion! I already got your Pop Star, so what are you going to do about it, hmm? You can always try, but unless if you prove yourself to be clever and not just almighty, you might be able to survive against my acolytes."
A no-nonsense, calculating, strategic, voracious self-titled Ultimate King of the Light who will not hold back until he get beaten up. Even then, he's absolutely immortal as the witnesses who remembered him will tell you; knocking him out will only cause him to lose his power for a while.
Although he is too busy searching for a certain nemesis to actively chasing Kirby and co., he did send a telepathy version of himself to warn Kirby to not intercept his conquest, and send his biggest and strongest acolytes to put a stop of the pink puffball. Its only when the heroes get into his way that Exateno decided that he had to get his hands dirty.
In fact, he is so tremendously powerful that no dark forces dared to come face to face with him, and no one were able to resist his invasion! It might had something to do with the EX Energy, some of which landed on Pop Star thanks to Magolor's incident, but Kirby and his allies had to gather all of the eight Light Orbs in order to properly deal with this big bad space dragon...

|"...Idiots. Do you think you could stop me collecting those Dark Orbs? I already had collected two of those, and you will not prevent me to revive the master of the darkest matters! It is fate that it will happen!"
It is unknown if it is the same Umbre Doo that Bandanna Waddle Dee had dealt with before or if it is a copy made by a familiar dark force, but one thing for sure, he's searching for the eight Dark Orbs with a very selfish intent to fusion with a certain "dark someone" to dominate the whole Dark Matter. In fact, rumors said that the Dark Matter were about to show up... before quickly hiding from the fearsome Exateno.
Umbre Doo feels no fear, only absolute negative emotions. This causes him to be overdramatic, but this will not stop him trying to install traps in an attempt to kill Kirby and allies, or to directly assault him with dark bombs. While he is not afraid of the Star Beasts, he certainly hates when his eye is exposed to strong light, which means troubles for him shall he get near bright zones, and flees quicker when attacked with light-based attacks, especially from the Light Ability.
|"Kirby! Next time we met, I will break you apart, in the name of his Great Lightness! Well, if I can jump out of this pitfall..."
Although she was used to work alone, Grand Mam is recruited by Exateno does to her nearly unbreakable armor, enormous strength and powerful maces (she is not using the exploding boulders anymore!). She chases Kirby and friends in one or two stages in almost every worlds, with the exception of Execrable Star and X-Star.
Because of her armor, none of the normal attacks were able to hurt her, and even solid steel blocks cannot withstand her own strength and maces! Instead, Kirby had to bring her into an obstacle which will greatly slow her down or even knock her out for a while, or in three confrontations, either tricking her into hitting an exploding obstacle, or when Kirby is being used, using a Giant Ability.
|"...F-Francisca? The-The Ice General? I've heard about her by passerby... B-but you should know that you named the wrong lady."
Tomelle is not from this universe... she seems to be from "a magical story book" for a solo mission, as her two acolytes are too busy as those two are preparing for an invasion in their own world. She is only met in Helpers to Heroes as the secondary antagonist, as Grand Mam and Umbre Doo are relocated to be only one-world bosses.
Other than being faced three times, she also indirectly attacks the players in hope to capture them and bring them as prisoners. In fact, she is responsible to put multiple Helpers into cages, and the player Helpers must free them to earn Bonus Stars.
There are seven main modes, which most of them need to be unlocked first.
Unlocked at the start.
The main mode of the game, where Kirby and his companions must face the mighty Star Horde to stop them from getting the Pop Star. It had the same gameplay of other Kirby 3D platforming games but in order to reach the goal, you must complete a simple objective first, should it be to find a key, defeat a specefic enemy, or find the required Element Crystal. Like in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, the player have to collect the spefefic amount of Element Crystal before being able to face the last stage with the boss, or in this case, the Giant Boss. In the second world and as of the fifth world, the Giant Boss is also assisted by one or two regular bosses but the Powerful Abilities and the Robobot Armor becomes much easier to obtain.
It consist of ten environment-themed worlds. You will complete them in a linear order, but the stages themselves are more closer to sandbox instand of linear-style. Bosses in bold are Giant Bosses, and almost every bosses seems to be brainwashed by the main antagonist, Exateno.

Helpers to Heroes
Unlocked after completing the tenth world in Adventure.
The story take place after the Adventure. In the Ripple Star, a ceremony in the castle had taken place in honor the heroes who liberate the fairy people of this star. Kirby and Magolor had shaken their hand, right before a vortex had opened from the ceiling. A familiar yet furious roar is heard right before Exateno's eyes brighten up and then the leader of the Star Horde proceed to single-handedly defeat and capture the eight heroes. He then proceed to capture all of the people of Ripple Star again.
When he returns in the X-Star, he seals the heroes in a huge crystals like how Galacta Knight got sealed away, and after showing an evil grin, proceeds to laugh in a sinister way.
When he announces his victory with his telepathy that he and his army are victorious to the captured planets and Pop Star, the Helpers in the latter star are upset and upon agreement, and led by Knuckle Joe and Bonkers, as well as the help of the abandoned Lor Starcutter, they start to deliver a counterattack to save Kirby and the others, as well as taking on the cruel leader once again.
Upon defeating Omega 02 and reaching the X-Star, Exateno cannot believe his sight, and decide to unleash a last resort; breaking the heroes out of the crystals and brainwash them into his soldiers.
After the credits, Magolor had continued to study about a mysterious book, and Taranza, who pays a visit with Kirby, becomes somewhat intrigued by the book.
There are multiple differences between the original Adventure and this sub-game as seem on this table.
Worlds and Bosses
These are side games of the game. They provide the same gameplay but have different goal.
Unlocked after defeating all bosses in Adventure and Kirby Wars.
This sub-game works the same like in the previous Kirby games, but because the game contain even more bosses than even Kirby Super Star Ultra, it only give out fifteen bosses instand of all of them, but the final two are certainly Omega Zero and then Giant Exateno. Other than that, the boss order is random.
The player 1 can only start as Kirby, but once beaten it the first time, the player 1 can choose any other character in this mode and the True Arena as below.
Completing the mode for the first time will unlock the True Arena, with a few new surprise bosses and all bosses are from the Helper to Heroes mode.
There is the Final Four (Fatal Five if any of the Ultimate Choice's higher difficulty as of Scary Massiveness had been completed), which is always confronted in specific order as the last five opponents, with one of them are exclusive to the True Arena, in the form of Exateno's strongest form, Infinite Exateno.
- Omega 02
- Grand Mam's Revenge EX
- Star Exateno
- Infinite Exateno
The Ultimate Choice
Unlocked after The Arena is beaten for the first time.
Unlike The Arena and The True Arena, the player can decide how many bosses they can face, from very few for fewer Waddle Dee Medals, to everyone of them for a massive amount of Waddle Dee Medals. The players can also choose any of the playable characters, be it Kirby, a Dream Friend or a Helper.
New to this mode is the Quick Save, allowing the player(s) to rest in-between the rounds. This is to compensate the potentially huge number of bosses the player will have to face.
The bosses are also in completely random order, the exception being Exateno, who is always faced last in Big Problem and higher difficulty, or otherwise will not be faced at all. The Scary Massiveness put the bosses into the EX counterpart.
Unlike the previous incarnation of the Ultimate Choice modes, this time when the player progress, the bosses will have enemies alongside for reinforcement, with Exateno being able to summon more enemies than he usually do. This is to make this mode more distant from the Arena and the True Arena modes.
As of the update of 30th March 2023, Susie, and then her second phase Exa-Susie, is added as the true final boss as of the Scary Massiveness or higher difficulty, to address the lack of surprise boss the Ultimate Choice of this game originally had. She is faced after Exateno. This update also adds the Mountainous Insanity and Universal Marathon difficulties, both harder than the Scary Massiveness.
|Level Name||Number of Bosses||Waddle Dee Medals Rewarded|
|Tiniest Beginning||Four bosses||100|
|Smaller Chance||Six bosses||300|
|Small Roughness||Seven bosses||500|
|Average Issue||Eight bosses||700|
|Big Problem||Nine bosses||950|
|Bigger Dismay||Ten bosses||1250|
|Huge Trouble||Twelve bosses||1500|
|Scary Massiveness||Fifteen bosses||2000|
