    smileman's Donkey Kong Country 2 (SNES)

    Gamelog Entry #2

    Just as soon as I think I'm getting good at this game, the game becomes more difficult. I got better at rolling and then jumping which makes the monkey leap further and is necessary to get further in the game. It is interesting to see the different backgrounds for the levels. While going through each stage, it's fun to try and earn extra lives by collecting 100 bananas, bundles are worth 10 bananas. Some of the levels were really hard and took me numerous tries to complete.

    The graphics are good for a 2D Super Nintendo game and each level has different backgrounds. The villains I fight along the way change each stage and move and shoot, which makes it hard to get passed them. It is frustrating when there are so many obstacles and such little room for mistakes. The bonus rounds are fun and change from destroying all the bad guys to collecting all the stars. The controls involve a lot of jumping, climbing, walking, and running. It is easy to bump into something or make a mistake, even for my friend who has more experience with the game. If I could change the game I would add more bananas and those special boxes which make the player invincible for awhile.

    In Donkey Kong Country 2 the player controls Diddy and Dixie, two monkeys that go on a quest to rescue Donkey Kong from the villain K. Rool. The game starts out on a pirate ship before travelling to K. Rool's island called Crocodile Isle. The objectives of the game are to make it to the end of the levels with at least one of the monkeys, defeat the bosses at the end of each world, and to rescue Donkey Kong.
    I enjoyed taking time out to play this game that I wanted, but never owned, as a child. The game is fun because I can destroy bad guys by jumping on them or throwing barrels at them. There are animal friends such as a rhino and snake, which are fun to control because they have different strengths which help with the obstacles in the levels. Other times the game was less fun, like some parts were troublesome and took playing over and over in order to pass.
    However, the game was interesting because it's filled with surprises like bonus boxes which have little games in them that if completed earn gold coins which can be used to save the game or to buy transportation. This gave me something to look out for while going through levels. Also, as you get further in the game different animal buddies come around like a swordfish, a snake, a spider, and even a parrot helps out.
    This game is two player which makes it fun to play with a friend. One person controls Diddy and the other controls the girl, who does a spin move when she jumps which makes her stay in the air longer. It's possible to switch roles standing, so players can switch off at many points or the other takes over when one dies.
