Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Part 2

Entering the next area, Krem Quay, Diddy and Dixie travel through the swamp to start their ascent up Crocodile Island. This world has us traveling through a perilous bayou using rotatable timed barrels and crocodile head to  travel around a sunken ship (again calling back to the game's pirate theme) to get to the other side of the quay to meet the boss, Kudgel.

This area contains 7 levels: two dedicated bayou levels, Barrel Bayou and Krockhead Klamber, to handle the horizontal platforming; one underwater level, Glimmer's Galleon, which uses limited lighting to create a feeling of suspense as they travel through the sunken ship; and, finally, one vertical platforming level in Slime Climb.

This world also introduces two new level types: Animal Buddy Levels in the form of Rattle Battle, and Bramble Levels, i.e. Bramble Blast. Animal Buddy levels transform the Kongs into the Animal Buddy and has that animal buddy travel through the level with the addition their specific power such as extra high jumps or the use of webs. Bramble levels introduce the idea of flight or sky into the game and often requires the player to avoid touching any of the walls or floor. Bramble levels also have the best level music in the game, Stickerbush Symphony.

We are aiming to get all 75 Kremcoins and 40 DK coins in this run giving us a 102% completion percentage.

Welcome to Every Game Played Blog

Hello and welcome to Every Game Played Blog. This blog will be your portal into my journey into gaming.

From Magic: The Gathering to Street Fighter, Final Fantasy to Call of Duty, I will strive to give you my perspective on each of the games I play and help us discover the wide wonderful world of our shared hobby.

I want to experience a variety of different types of games, from Platformers to Role-Playing Games, First Person Shooters to Puzzle games. I want to clear my backlog of all the games I own and bring my thoughts to you so that you can take what you see and decide whether to play the games yourself.

I intend to do a combination of streaming on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/UnfortunateWill) and uploading videos of my playthroughs so that streaming videos you can see my thoughts as they occur and the uploaded videos can be edited to maximize your enjoyment.

After each game I play, I intend to write a review for you that tells you my feelings around the game and gi…

Super Mario World Review

Super Mario World, released for the SNES in 1990 as a launch title and developed by Nintendo, is my second favorite game of all time. A follow up to the last main line Mario game Super Mario Bros. 3., Super Mario World (SMW) builds upon the game play of the previous titles by using familiar gimmicks such splitting the levels into separate worlds in which the player can choose which levels they play in which order, using many familiar power ups in the Mushroom and Fire Flower, and ending each world with a fight with one of Bowser's children.


However, new additions allow the game provide a fresh experience for players of the previous games in the series. The biggest addition is the Mario game debut of Mario's dinosaur companion, Yoshi. Hatching a Yoshi egg allows Mario to ride the dinosaur and command Yoshi to eat enemies, fruit and gain new abilities when they eat the shells of the Koopa Troopas. The shells correspond to the powers of the colored Yoshi's: blue grows wings …

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Part 1

Hello Everyone!

I'm starting my second playthrough with another one of my favorites, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. When I was a kid, we had a Super Nintendo and would borrow games from our neighbors and this was a favorite of both my sister and myself.

We are aiming to get all 75 Kremcoins and 40 DK coins in this run giving us a 102% completion percentage.

Each level will have all Bonus Areas completed and DK Coins collected before moving to the next level. This will ensure that we get all collectibles and enter the Lost World in one go.

I hope you enjoy the playthrough and please let me know in the comments either here or on YouTube.

Part 2

Gangplank Galleon is a great introduction that uses the full pirate ship theme in each of the levels. Using the ship's deck, the ship's sails and masts and the ship's bowels in each of the different levels really give a great variety and thematically gives each level type a unique identity. For Example, the ship'…
