Lots to explore in this solid and superior sequel to the original Kongs quest but damn if they didn't go out of they're way to make a platformer tough.

review by . June 30, 2010
In 1994, Donkey Kong Country took the gaming world by storm with the release showing us just how pretty a game could be... and how fun.  It became a success.  By the end of its short life, Donkey Kong Country sold over 8 million copies worldwide, at one point even being packaged with the Super Nintendo.  So what was Developer RARE and Nintendo going to do for an encore?  Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.  Nearly everything that may have been a bit annoying about …

Damn Dirty...Little Apes!
In 1994, Donkey Kong Country came out in conjunction with Rare and with it's impressive rendered 3D style graphics, sweet sounds and platforming, it was a huge hit.  It took a forgotten Nintendo character who was a villian, made him the hero of a platformer and gave him a sidekick to do battle against the Evil Commander K Rool, the Bowser to Donkey Kong's Mario.  K Rool had his army of Kremlings and have made off with Donkey Kong's Banannas.  It was a decent game with …

About this video game


InDonkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the second installment of this superb series, you wage battle against Kaptain K. Rool and his vast army of Kremlings. The incredible Advanced Computer Modeling (ACM) graphics in this game have been specially optimized for the Game Boy. If you play this game with the Super Game Boy accessory for the Super NES, you'll have access to specially selected color palettes and custom border graphics.

As the story begins, K. Rool has kidnapped Donkey Kong, and he's demanding the entire Banana Hoard as ransom. It's up to Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong to rescue their kidnapped pal. A wild assortment of friendly animals like Rambi the Rhino, Squitter the Spider, Squawks the Parrot, Rattly the Rattlesnake, and Enguarde the Swordfish help the two little monkeys in their adventurous mission through over 40 levels. Each exciting area is filled with special traps, hidden items, and dastardly Kremlings.

People who have played Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Super NES will recognize many of the elements of this game. For example, Diddy Kong can do his signature cartwheel, and Dixie Kong can do her helicopter hair spin. And, you'll need to collect Kremcoins to be able to pass Klubba's Kiosk and get on to the Lost World. But, unlike the game's Super NES counterpart, one character cannot throw the other, and it's only a one-player game. Of course, you can always pause the game and hand it to a friend if you want some two-player...
