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.

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 grow

The old king then raises an undead army to search for the Trine so he can complete the collection and gain ultimate

Kirby's Dream Land Review

Kirby's Dream Land is a Nintendo Game Boy action-platformer developed by HAL Laboratories and published by Nintendo. Masahiro Sakurai designed this game to be an introduction to the genre that allows beginning players to ease into learning the basic mechanics while not stressing out over staying alive. In this game, the self proclaimed King Dedede has gone out and stole all of the foot in Dream Land. Kirby has to travel through four levels to get to King Dedede's palace and defeat him to return the food to the good citizens of Dream Land. In each level, the player must travel through several different scenes to reach an end boss that they must defeat before moving on to the next level. To combat the enemies that try to impede Kirby, Kirby can inhale and draw the enemy or other obstacle into his mouth. Then the player can decide to either swallow it or spit it out to damage other enemies or destroy blocks in the way. To help the player jump up to high platforms or recover
