After the success of Donkey Kong Country 2, it’s no surprise that Rare wanted to keep capitalizing on their successful franchise by putting variations of the game on the Game Boy…despite how strange Donkey Kong Land was by itself. For this game however, Rare spent a little more time emulating Donkey Kong Country 2, down to the very same level names and gimmicks that made the game known. How does this hold up compared to it’s console counterpart?

I needed another short project to bridge the gap between my first two big projects of the year, so once again, I decided to take a trip back to the Game Boy. I told you this was going to be the year of handhelds. I was definitely looking forward to this one though, just because it was the best of the DKL trilogy, from what I remember of it. However…is that really saying much? Let’s find out…

If capturing Donkey Kong wasn’t enough, it seems like Diddy Kong has also gone missing, which means that it is Dixie’s turn to figure out what the heck is going on in the world of Donkey Kong Country. This time she is joined up by her cousin Kiddy Kong who has some unique abilities of his own (although for the most part, he is just a copy of Donkey Kong). The duo will have to search places like Kremwood Forest, Mekanos, and Razor Ridge to find their friends!

To close off this SNES trilogy, I bring you DKC3! Although it’s not my favorite of the trilogy, I still have very fond memories of playing this game with my friends, and like the two installments that came before it, it’s filled to the brim with excellent platforming gameplay, some very intriguing puzzle elements, and the general monkey madness that ensues from any game with the Donkey Kong label.

Donkey Kong has been captured by the vicious Captain K. Rool (any relation to King K. Rool? I have no idea, but I like to think they are the same person), and Diddy Kong is now the monkey in the spotlight, this time joined by his new partner and girlfriend, Dixie Kong! This dynamic duo will now test their limits in this all new quest of monkey madness, and pirate-themed scenarios!

Like I established the previous year, I wanted to cover the entire Donkey Kong Country series, and at this point, the critically acclaimed sequel was next on the list. This game is definitely my favorite of the trilogy (although I do love all 3), so I was quite amped to take this one to the end!
