Before the release of Kingdom Hearts 3, a mobile game was released for iOS and Android called Kingdom Hearts Union X. As a side activity, players can play a number of mini games. What makes this mobile game important for die hard fans is the ability to unlock the Starlight Keyblade after reaching a certain score in five mini-games. Here are the five mini-games you need to play and some tips in order to breeze through each.
High Scores Needed for Each Mini-Game
|Fishin’ Frenzy||Achieve a score of 7,500|
|Giantland||Escape 50 times|
|The Musical Farmer||Achieve a score of 5,000|
|The Karnival Kid||Achieve a score of 30,000|
|The Barnyard Battle||Achieve a score of 25,000|
*Targets are cumulative.
Once you achieve a high score in five classic kingdom mini-games, you will receive the limited edition keyblade “Starlight.”
How to Check your High Score
|Controller||Move Left and Right|
|UP||Raise fishing line or capture a fish|
|DOWN||Lower the fishing line|
You can either hold or rapidly press the up and down buttons in this mini-game. Hold the up button when reeling the line in and mash the down button to maximize your speed. A higher speed will mean more successful catches.
As the score increases, so does the difficulty. Try to be on the lookout for the big fish and signboards. There will be more big fishes and signboards in the playing field as the game progresses. Hitting a signboard or getting eaten by the fish will reduce your life by one. Three lives lost and it’s game over.
|Controller||Move Left and Right|
|Action||Pour Pepper, Pull the string, jump from one candle to another|
Sequence of Actions
|1||Walk to left while avoiding the giant’s stop|
|2||Go to the spoon and wait for the giant to kick it to propel you upward|
|3||Go right until you reach the far right end of the screen|
|4||press the ACTION button to pull the string|
|5||Go back to the far left of the screen|
|6||press ACTION near the pepper to propel yourself upward again|
|7||Swing through the candles toward Mickey Mouse in the window|
As the stage progresses, the movements of the giant will become faster and harder to avoid. Do take note that this game is not timed. As such, you can always rely on safe areas like the basket on the right side of the table and the tableware on the left side of the table.
The Musical Farmer
|Action||Change the direction of the pipe, pass boxes, switch boxes|
A game of multi-tasking
The musical farmer is all about gathering eggs in the three baskets and passing them to Mickey and Minnie. Each level has a target number of eggs you need to collect. With each level you advance, the target gets higher and the eggs fall faster.
Game A and Game B
The difference between game A and B is the presence of the box in the middle. The box is present in A, making it easier as players don’t have to worry about switching the boxes. If you want to be safer, choose Game A.
Up to six eggs can be placed inside a box. As such, it’s best to pass the eggs frequently when given the chance. Eggs mid-air can also be passed immediately once out of the pipe. Doing so will create more time to think about your next action. Also, an egg will not break if you move a pipe while it is inside.
The Karnival Kid
|Controller||Move up, left, and right|
|Action||To take food, bake a sausage, to put ketchup|
This mini-game’s goal is to deliver ordered food within the time limit. The difficulty will increase each time you fulfill an order. Each time the score increases, the time limit is extended. So it’s important to give food as fast as possible.
How to bake a sausage
To bake a sausage, press the action button while in front of the iron plate. Once the sausage is cooked, you can put it on the pan again by pressing the action button. Since Sausage is always included in the order, always try to cook and stock sausages. However, baking the sausage too much will cause it to burn, so adjust accordingly. Remember that you can prep the plate with ingredients, including ketchup, while waiting for the sausage to finish cooking.
The Barnyard Battle
|SORA < >||Move Sora left and Right, Hammer Pound|
|MICKEY < >||Mickey moves left and right, Hammer Pound|
The Barnyard Battle is the last mini-game in the classic kingdom. In this game mode, you must knock out soldiers coming in from the back of the screen. Each wave gets faster and increasing numbers of enemies come down the lanes.
The soldiers move at regular intervals. Each time they move, a sound effect occurs. It’s sometimes better to focus on the sounds instead of actually looking at every lane on the screen. Every 10 hits will increase your point bonus by 0.1.
Since the soldiers move at the same time, practice can actually increase your chances of succeeding in this game mode. When two soldiers are marching at the same time, you want to press each button at the same.
You get the Classic Notes keyblade for getting the highscores in minigames. You don’t get the Starlight keyblade from this, you get it by completing the Keyblade Graveyard.
For beating them on KHUX you get a code for the Starlight. For getting any score in KHIII on the Gummi Phone you get Classic Notes Keyblade.
