Donkey Kong Continent is a game for the Nintendo Wii starring Donkey Kong. It was released in 2008, and serves as a spiritual successor to the Donkey Kong Country series, as well as the King of Swing series and Donkey Kong 64. Due to this, there are three different level varieties, being Country-style sidescrollers, 64-style free-roamers, and Swing-style peg climbers.
One day, Donkey Kong is sitting in his hammock, eating a banana. Suddenly, Cranky Kong appears and tells Donkey Kong of a recent and sudden Kremling invasion on Donkey Kong Island. Donkey Kong goes to find Diddy Kong, and when he does, Diddy reports to him that Dixie, Kiddy, and Lanky are missing. DK and Diddy set out on an adventure to find the missing Kongs, and save Donkey Kong Island.
After defeating the Dogadon, he reluctantly releases Dixie Kong from a cage. He also tells the Kongs that King K. Rool has created a new way to destroy the Kongs: he will send his minions to the four most Kong-populated areas and overthrow them. After hearing this, they return to Cranky, who tells the trio that the Kremling Krew have five sacred artifacts, in which they are using to overthrow the Kongs. After hearing this, the three set out on their real adventure to rescue the remaining Kongs and stop King K. Rool.
The levels of the game are found in four different areas: Donkey Kong Island, Krocodile Isle, the Northern Kremisphere, and Beat Island. Additionally, levels from the original Donkey Kong Country can be obtained from Candy Kong's Save Barrel. These levels include most of the levels from Kongo Jungle and the final boss fight against K. Rool.
Donkey Kong Island
Donkey Kong Continent contains several different game modes. The main menu of the game features a front view of Donkey Kong Island, with several different areas that, when clicked, lead to a game mode.
This mode is accessed by clicking on the cavern-entrance to the inside of Donkey Kong Island, found at the bottom of the head. Once clicked, three barrels appear, one for each game file. Once one is chosen, you go to the main game.
This is started by clicking on Funky Kong, who is standing on the beach right next to the entrance to DK Island. Once he is clicked, the camera pans up to the sky, where you can choose to do either single console or Nintendo Wifi Connection. You are then given an option to choose one of three different types of games: Kong Race, where players race to finish any of the levels first; Classic Battle, a battle mode similar to the one found in Donkey Kong 64; and Air Battle, where players can use Funky's Barrel Planes to battle each other in the sky. The level is chosen next, followed by each players' Kong.
This is accessed by clicking the tree next to the Donkey Kong head. This leads to a wooden background, where several different things, such as rumble and sound, can be changed.
Clicking on the Banana Fairy will lead to Banana Fairy Island. The Banana Fairy Queen has different extras to turn on and off depending on how many fairies you have collected. The extras include using Tiny and Chunky in Multiplayer, getting bonus levels, and rewatching cutscenes.
This mode can be unlocked by collecting all of the Banana Fairies. By clicking on the right eye of the island, you enter the island and are given several options. These include the type of background you want, the style of stage, and the music that plays. Next, you are given different lad masses, items, enemies, obstacles, and everything in between to make your level. When this is complete, you name the level and save it. The levels can be played whenever you want, or be sent to friends using WiiConnect24.
Donkey Kong Continent has several items, both new and old. Although several of the items can only be used by one Kong, there are also items that every Kong can use.
