Trivia

Both playable characters have their strengths and weaknesses. Donkey Kong is slower than Diddy and considerably less agile, but has more strength, so he can defeat enemies with a jumping attack that Diddy could not. Likewise, Diddy lacks physical strength but can move more quickly and jump higher than Donkey, making him able to reach areas his partner could not. See more »

Quotes

Cranky Kong (Text Narration): [after Donkey and Diddy defeat King K. Rool] Well done, Donkey, my boy! Who would've thought a young whippersnapper like you could've beaten that bunch of no-good Kremlings? You've made an old man proud! Go and look in your hoard; I think you'll be in for a surprise! If I had been playing, I'd have found everything! I'm sure there must be some bonus rooms you haven't found!

Best game for the Super Nintendo!
8 July 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Donkey Kong Country is a really classic game. Everybody who saw it back in 1994 thought that this was a game for Nintendo`s new 64-bit system(Nintendo 64). But Donkey Kong Country was a game for the 16-bit Super Nintendo(Super Famicom in Japan). The extremely good graphics that blew everybody away were possible to do on a SNES(short for Super Nintendo Entertainment System) because the developers discovered a new technique to make SNES-games(the Advanced-Computer-Modelling technique). The graphics are impressive, even by today`s standard. But DKC didn`t become a classic just because it looked lush, it also had gameplay and atmosphere to die for. The levels are highly detailed, there are many of them and the excellent music makes for one he%& of an adventure. The game can be extremely frustrating, and you`ll throw away the control and swear like he¤%, but the game is really worth the bother, so you`ll soon pick up the controller again for one more go. I prefer this to Donkey Kong 64 on the N64. DKC is SO GOOD!! 10/10
