Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble (800 Points): Revisit Donkey Kong Island and join the Kong family for their latest adventure. The Kremlings have a mysterious new leader named KAOS and are up to their usual mischief, even capturing Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Now it's up to Dixie Kong and the newest Kong, a giant infant named Kiddy, to rescue the two missing apes. They'll travel across previously unseen parts of the island in their search, and even take to the skies in a rocket at one point. Lucky for them, Dixie and Kiddy's powers complement each other (including Kiddy's talent for rolling like a barrel), so they form a powerful team capable of major Kremling damage. They're not completely on their own, either, since returning favorites like Funky Kong and Enguarde the swordfish provide help along the way. And in a series known for its abundance of secrets and high replay value, this entry doesn't disappoint, with enough hours of game play to satisfy Donkey Kong himself. Anyone else have a sudden urge for some bananas?
@V_s Thanks I think part of why more people haven't shown up there is because anyone who's trying to beat all three games, won't have any recognition on this chart until they beat DKC3. Thus, they'd have to play through the games in a much shorter period of time than they otherwise might in order to catch up. I decided from the start to only play DKC3 though, so I could put all of my time and energy into that.
I'm still trying to 105% it by the way; Swoopy Salvo is giving me a hard time. There's a bonus game in this stage that I just can't find. I recall having trouble with this as a kid as well; I really don't want this to be the point that makes me have to go look at a guide online in order to progress
How is everyone coming along with this round? I don't think I'll be going back to the first two DKC games; at least not for the time being, but playing DKC3 again makes me feel like finally picking up the Land trilogy on Game Boy. I also have my copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns, which I haven't played yet I'm planning on going through that during Backlaugust.
@PogueSquadron It's not that bad as long as you don't try to rush your way through the stage. It helps to wait a moment at any part of the stage that seems like it might take more than a couple seconds to get past, such as any of the small cliffs you have to scale that are patrolled by Buzzes. If need be, just hang tight in a wide enough area that lets you easily dodge a blast of lightning, then when the lightning has just dissipated and the Buzzes have cleared a jumping path for you, then you can make your way through
I need to hurry up. I still don't think I ever beat the lightning level, ugh. What a pain in the ass.
No hurry to finish it by today. You can keep playing till you finish it and then post it here. I haven't even begun DKC3. I've been busy with DKC and DKC2. I'll probably begin it next week and play it alongside the July pick (assuming a game that I said I would play wins, of course).
Playing through this game, I have no idea why everyone thinks the music is so great. I don't think any of it is as good as what Donkey Kong Country has to offer. This game is a step down in each category from the first game, unless you were hoping for more difficulty, content, and critters.
