Autumn Heights is indeed awesome. Each island in this game is just so well-defined, colorful, and fun to explore. Even the island that involves a lot of swimming is a blast. Like TheBigG753 said, Tropical Freeze's brilliance doesn't waver. Great levels just keep on coming.

So like, what do you have to do to find all of the stages in this game? I know some have secret exits. What else? Collect the KONG pieces?

About the music... I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in the David Wise soundtrack next to his old stuff until later in the game when stuff like this hit:

Sure it is technically a remake, but it really has its own thing going on. Only one part really borrows from the old song. THE BEST PART.

I still don't think the soundtrack has the consistent awesomeness of the older games. But it has a lot of great tracks.

That soundtrack is awesome, Nostalgia Man.

Hey don't get me wrong, the soundtrack grew on me a lot. It has some really emotional stuff, some epic stuff, and some straight up funky stuff like this...

That song kind of cracks me up. So cheese, but so good.

I just don't know if I find the soundtrack as consistently interesting as the soundtrack in DKC 2 and maybe even the soundtrack in DKC 1. I end up skipping a lot of tracks when listening to TPs. But that might not be a fair comparison, each of those games had about 20? songs while this one has like 60 or something? The newer DKC games have some huge soundtracks! Most every stage has its own song, that is nuts.

We can all agree that DKC 3 had the worst soundtrack of the DKC games, right? I went through the whole soundtrack the other day and the only song that really stood out to me was a remix of a Super Mario 64 song.

I might be going through these soundtracks start to finish for a reason...

That song makes me want to rub oil all over my body and dance sensually while wearing a cowboy hat and pantyhose.

Is it news to learn Zero is your archnemesis?
Posted: 12/07/14, 04:03:58

I have so many nemeses, it's hard to keep track of all of their secret identities.
Posted: 12/07/14, 04:59:17
I'm like everyone's arch-nemesis. I hate all of you. In fact, this site was just a trick of mine to get all of my enemies in one place. And it worked!

You have to tell us the rest of your plan or else nothing will happen.

You are the worst supervillain ever.
Posted: 12/07/14, 20:56:41
No I don't tell the full plan until I have you trapped in my death trap so that you can't escape and tell anyone else and then I tell you all of the details of my plan that you could use to ruin my plan and then I leave without waiting to make sure that you actually die assuming that of course you would never be able to escape and then you escape and... yeah.

@Zero Collecting all the KONG letters in one world unlocks the temple stage for that world. Every other stage in a world is accessed by finding the alternate exit. Before you unlock the temple level, you can tell which one it is by looking at the tile underneath it; it'll have the temple tile under the dot.

@Zero But I love you.

Posted: 12/07/14, 22:17:49
Ew. Love disgusts me.
Posted: 12/07/14, 22:19:30


Posted: 12/07/14, 22:27:42

But we're already trapped you said.

So...we're waiting.

I don't think you thought this through

Finally finished all of the stages including the bonus stages. 7-3 is one of my favorite platfomer stages ever, everything about it is awesome.

So... yeah. I think this might be the best DKC yet. Certainly up there with the best. It took awhile to grow on me, but I loved it.

Sort of tempted to go for 1 heart mode. But I remember what caught me up on that in the Wii version... the boss fights. And they are freaking LONGGGGGG in this game so it'd be annoying doing 1 heart mode on them.

Probably just call it a day and move on. Other games to play.

At the very least, it's worth replaying some of your favorite stages with characters other than DK.
Posted: 12/23/14, 06:28:21
@Zero Yeah, that's how I felt too. It was fun to play the levels again because they really require utilising the character abilities to their fullest to get through unscathed, but the bosses were annoying enough the first time that they're just ridiculous.
Posted: 12/23/14, 22:45:38
So I can't get the timing down in this part of 7-3:

Am I not supposed to hold down the run button or what? It seems like I need to jump before even seeing the obstacles.
