Kirby Wiki

Blockworld[1] is a world found high in the skies of Dream Land, and is the setting of Kirby's Block Ball. Ten floating islands form a ring around one larger land mass—called 1-up Isle[2]—upon which stands Castle Dedede. Kirby ventures through Blockworld on a quest to retrieve the Sparkling Stars from King Dedede.

As its name suggests, Blockworld is full of blocks. Kirby spends the entirety of the game smashing through them. Each of the 11 stages is comprised of five areas: three areas full of blocks, a Target Shooting Area[3] full of Star Blocks, and a boss area (with the exception of Stage 11, which has seven areas). If Kirby uncovers a Warp Star, he can briefly head to 1-up Isle and play a sub-game of his choice.
