Want to Download Donkey Kong Country ROM? Then you are in the right place.
Donkey Kong Country is a platform game developed by Rare, published by the Nintendo for the Super Nintendo (SNES) console.
This game was initially released on Super Nintendo in 1994, but later it was also remade for Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance.
The story begins in Donkey Kong Island where on a dark night Donkey Kong gave the responsibility of protecting the Banana Hoard to his Nephew.
Diddy Kong is given this responsibility as a part of his Hero Training to protect the Hoard until midnight while DK will rest.
In the night, Diddy hear some voices outside and gets scared thinking who is outside when two ropes fall, and with them, two Kritters appear.
Diddy easily defeat Kritters with a Cartwheel, but then Krusha also appears who overpower Diddy and beat him.
After defeating Diddy, King K. Rool order his Kremling minions to steal all the bananas from the Banana Hoard and seal Diddy in a barrel.
Cranky heard the voices and thought something is fishy, and when he saw King K. Rool, he quickly rushed to DK and told him to check the Banana Hoard.
After seeing the Banana Hoard empty, DK became furious and set his mission to bring his Banana Back.
You control DK and will soon find Diddy sealed in a barrel who will accompany you in your journey.
Diddy will follow you along the path, and you can choose your character between the two depending on your preference.
Diddy can move, climb and swim faster as he is lightweight which give him the advantage to be fast. Also, he can perform Cartwheel, High Jump and use the barrel as a shield.
Whereas DK is muscular and bulky so he runs a little slower, perform smaller roll, and can easily defeat enemies with his unusual move named Hand Slap.
Diddy is not much powerful so he cannot defeat some powerful enemies like Krusha whereas DK can easily do the task.
After finding Diddy, you will go on a mission to fight enemies, go through 40 different levels while collecting Items to bring your Bananas back.
Features of Donkey Kong Country
In your journey to bring back all the Bananas, you have to go through 40 different side-scrolling levels taking your from one map to another.
But in all these levels King K. Rool minions will try to stop and defeat you in the process.
To go further in the game you have to defeat these enemies that you can do by Jumping or rolling over them.
As you go further, you will challenge strong opponents, and the level of difficulty will increase.
For instance, in the beginning, you will fight Chomps, but later you will fight challenging rivals like Zinger who are difficult to defeat.
DK or Diddy can also lift Barrels that you can throw onto the enemies to defeat them like a TNT Barrel will burn out any enemy.
At the end of each world, you will fight a boss that is an enlarged version of a general Enemy expect from King K. Rool.
These Bosses are mighty and difficult to defeat, to defeat them you have to repeatedly jump/roll over them and also throw barrels.
Once a Boss is defeated, you will be able to go to the next level with new rival and challenges.
Multi-Player is a mode where more than one player can play the game and control a character manually.
In this game, two players can play the game simultaneously where the first player controls Donkey Kong by default, and the other one controls Diddy.
But you can also change your character by using a Tag-Team clap which will swap the character between the first and second player.
In multi-player, you have two modes – Two Player Team and Two Player Contest.
In Two Player Team both the players play the game simultaneously where the first player control DK while Diddy is controlled by others.
Also, both the player can swap their characters by giving a Tag-Team Clap only if both the players agree.
If any player dies, then the other player will continue to play until he revives the other by a DK Barrel(you have to break the DK Barrel).
If both the players die then one life will decrease, and you have to play with the remaining one.
In Two Player Contest, both the players enter in a contest where the one who wins the most stages is a winner.
In here, both the player will have turn-based gameplay where both of them will control both the characters just like in the single mode.
Both the players will have Kongs of a different color to determine the winner.
While playing the game, you will come across various Items found in open or Boxes that you can collect and use in the game.
The basic Item that you will find is the Banana and Banana Bunches that usually is like a coin for the Kongs.
When Kong collects 100 of these Bananas, he will gain one new life that gives you more chances to play the game.
Another Item is known as Banana Bunches who is an upgraded version of Banana and is equal to 10 Banana.
Collecting ten Banana Bunch will give you a new life since one Bunch is worth Ten Banana.
Other Items are – Barrels, Extra Life Balloons, KONG Letters, Tire, and Animal Token.
Barrels are commonly found that can be picked up and thrown by the Kong onto an Enemy to defeat him.
Some Barrels like TNT Barrel can have a significant effect on the enemies while all of them can be used to open the secret cave.
Some Barrels like Cannon Barrels are also used for Transformation that will shoot the kong from One place to another.
Extra Life Balloons are a type of Balloon that can increase your Life upto three extra lives.
In this game, there are three types of Extra Life Balloons – Red Balloon, Green Balloon, and Blue Balloon.
A Red Balloon is the most common among the three and can be found at secret/Hidden Places that will increase your life by one.
A Green Balloon is an Item that is difficult to found, but once collected it will give you two extra lives.
Blue Balloon is by far the rarest balloon that is the hardest to find but once collected it can increase your life by three.
In every level, there are several collectible letters in gold color completing the word KONG that will give you an additional life if collected.
A Tire can be seen since the beginning of the game that will be used to perform high jump by the Kongs; they can be easily moved.
An Animal Token is a shiny animal looking figure that can be collected throughout the game that takes you to a secret place once three of the same Animal Token is collected.
Apart from Kong family other Animals like Rambi and Winky also help DK and Diddy in their quest.
There are five Animal Buddy found in the game that is trapped in the crate with their Picture on it, once broken these Buddies will help you in your quest.
Those five Animals are – Rambi (Rhinoceros), Enguarde(Swordfish), Winky(Frog), Squawks(Parrot), and Expresso(Ostrich).
Rambi the Rhinoceros is the first Buddy you will find in the first level itself trapped in a crate with the Rhino Symbol on it.
Once the crate is broken, the Kong can sit on Rambi and ride him throughout the level.
Rambi’s powerful horn will defeat any enemy that comes your way making it difficult for any enemy to defeat you in the way.
Also, you can use his horn to open up the door of a secret place/cave and can perform some activities like Jump, etc.
Enguarde is a Swordfish that can be found trapped in a crate in underwater levels, freeing her will let you ride her.
Once you sit on Enguarde, you can easily defeat any underwater rival with the help of her powerful bill.
She also moves faster in water than the Kongs as she is a fish.
Winky is a frog that can be found trapped in a Crate with a Frog symbol on it that, once broken it frees this frog.
Being a frog he has the ability of frog, i.e. to jump higher, you can use his jump to either defeat enemies or jump over them.
Squawks is a Parrot that only appears once in Torchlight Trouble where he carries the lamp to light the dark place.
You can not ride him as he is smaller and weak to lift the weight of a Kong.
Expresso is an Ostrich that can be found trapped in a Crate with an Ostrich symbol on it, once broken it frees the Ostrich.
She is so tall that you can completely ignore small rivals like Klaptraps and can float for a short duration to find secret places.
Collect Animal Token
Animal Token is a rare item that is a Golden color floating statue of the Animal Buddies.
You can collect one of these token in secret/hidden place where you have to jump on them to collect them.
Once you collect three of the same Token, you will be transferred to a secret place where you have to perform a task for a small duration.
There is four Animal Token that you can find – Rhinoceros, Swordfish, Frog, and Ostrich.
The secret place will be different from each other depending on the Token you collect, but the task will remain the same, i.e. to collect the mini-tokens.
For instance, after collecting three of Swordfish token, you will be transferred underwater whereas for Ostrich you will have to float from higher places.
In all these secret places, there is another mysterious place that has the enlarged version of the mini-Token.
Once you jump on this coin, it will break in several coins in the shape of “X2” meaning once collected it will double your current mini-token.
You can play this token game for a short duration after which you will be transferred back to the original game.
After the time is over, you will get an extra Life Balloon for every 100 mini-Tokens that will increase your life.
