Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Part 3

Krazy Kremland is where the game starts turning the corner and starts introducing harder mechanics to the game. This area is bifurcated into two separate screens, the first is entrance where the beehive and the last bit of the swamp is, and the second is the carnival area, where the final level type is introduced, the roller coaster levels.

The beehive type levels are well themed where Diddy and Dixie have to avoid multitudes of zingers while contending with the sticky honey that hinders their movement. The amusement park levels consist of two roller coaster rides, one that introduces the concept of barrels that either open or close a path or a race in which the Kongs have to pass other Kremlings that are on the track with out being pushed off into the abyss below.

Another notable level is Rambi Rumble, this level starts as a normal beehive level but half way through Rambi is introduced  and the player has to use Rambi to outrun a giant zinger while avoiding the smaller zingers in his way.

The levels round out with another Bramble level, Bramble Scramble, which has the Kongs grab on to the bird buddy Squawks to traverse through the level, and another bayou level in Mudhole Marsh.

The area ends with the Kongs using Squawks to topple the reign of King Zing by throwing eggs at his stinger until he splits into 5 small zingers which are then defeated.

One of the levels I'd like to see in this is a platforming level based upon the amusement park theme because I don't think that this world really plays into that part of the theme really well. I don't think the designers had a really good idea on how to use it and so they mostly ignored it outside of the background of the second area screen.

Please join me and let me know what you think in the comments.

Trine - Part 3 to End

Honestly, It's kind a hard with a game that's much more about the platforming and gameplay to try to stretch out a blog post about it. The rest of the game is pretty straight-forward. A bunch of more platforming challenges with some added difficulty. A few new mechanics: Adding in dark areas where the Thief and Soldier have to light up a torch to see where the player can jump Lava that kills the player much more quickly than spikes or acid Balance puzzles where the player must take into account how much weight two sides of a scale have so that the player can proceed We do reach the final boss in this part and as you may guess, it's a platforming challenge in which the stage actively puts obstacles in your way that you must destroy before you can move on. When you get to the top of the tower you see a cut scene where you defeat the corrupted old king and reunited the artifacts to return balance to the world and vanquish the undead menace.
