DK Jungle Climber Screenshots



Key Features:

King K. Rool is up to no good again, and it's time for Donkey Kong to swing into action.
Simple controls make the game easy and fun to play, so that players of all skill levels can swing and climb their way to new heights.
Team up with Diddy Kong for even more attacks and abilities, or call on Cranky Kong for some quick tips and advice. The whole Kong crew is here to help – even Funky Kong chips in to fly players off for exciting challenges.
If players are more in the mood to rumble, they can take on up to three friends in fun multiplayer challenges using DS Download Play via local wireless. Pick from DK, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong and Funky Kong, and let the monkey business begin.

Game storyline: DK and friends were enjoying their vacation on a tropical island. However, King K. Rool's sinister schemes have ruined Donkey Kong's tropical vacation. King K. Rool and the Kremling Krew were up to no good. This time, King K. Rool is plotting to steal the Crystal Bananas from a visiting alien and use them to take over not just the jungle but the whole universe.

How to progress through the game: DK: Jungle Climber's simple controls set it apart from any other platformer on the market. Players need only three buttons to play the game: The L button controls DK's left hand. The R button controls his right hand. Pressing the A or B button makes DK do a jumping attack. When DK is holding onto a peg with just one hand, he spins around that peg, and by timing the release just right, players can launch DK wherever they want to go. By using the L and R buttons, players grasp onto pegs and jump, climb and fling their way through different settings. Diddy Kong chips in to help from time to time, offering a more powerful attack with a longer range. Diddy Kong's added range helps DK strike far-off barrels to open up new pathways in a level. With Diddy Kong's help, Donkey Kong can use certain special items, like the feathers: Diddy Kong flaps a small feather on the right, and DK flaps a larger one on the left. Together, they can fly. With the hammer, Diddy swings around in a circle behind DK and bashes away at obstacles DK couldn't clear on his own.

The game introduces basic game-play mechanics in minigames that can be replayed at any time. These minigames include a jumping game, in which DK must jump oncoming logs, a juggling game, where players control DK's hands in order to juggle bananas, and a climbing race.

Characters: Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong (primary characters). Cranky Kong (tutorials, major story role). Xananab (a banana alien). King K. Rool (primary villain). Kremlings (King K. Rool's minions).

Multiplayer: Some of the minigames can be played in multiplayer mode for high scores. Additionally, up to four players can race using a single game card. Players will choose from Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong and Funky Kong and race through game levels to beat the other players to the end.
