The Burning Sky
The Burning Sky (あかく もえる そら?) is the last main area in the Sparkling Labyrinth. This area introduces Fireflinger Groinks, and focuses around them. There are several of them in the background, and the player will be constantly encountering their fireballs, making patience and timing important skills. To increase the difficulty even more, some sections have both Groink fireballs and enemies attacking, so the player has to organize their group and actions to not get caught by a fireball while fighting enemies, or to not get bit while trying to dodge a Groink strike.
The area mainly focuses on Fireflinger Groinks, that are a real threat throughout the level. At the beginning of the area, the player is introduced to one of those creatures, through a cutscene. After a long walk in the level, the player can retrieve a buried treasure, the Inevitable Tragedy. This treasure is located next to a nest of Crystalline Crushblats. Some time after this, Olimar has to take a bomb rock, while being careful to not be harmed by Fireflinger Groinks. He has to bring it on a cobblestone block in order to get access to a doorway. In the other side, a Mockiwi waits for him, with the Value Band inside of it. After that, the player has to reach the end of the area, while avoiding the fireballs shot by the Fireflinger Groinks.
