Hrm. I'm the opposite. I think it's because I was going pretty sour on my Wii U when I first owned the game, so I pretty much just blew through it. Didn't try to collect the letters of the pieces, just pretty much burned through it to say I saw it.

I really enjoyed it this time around, and I'm trying to get everything (well...mostly everything. Not golds in the time trials...I'll just settle for any medal lol)

@rallydefault some of those gold times are insane fair play to anyone who can gold them all!! I have played some coop with the wife and she is enjoying especially with Funky mode. I've got BattleChasers and Sushi Strikers arriving soon and want to do a 100% no gold medal before then so don't know whether to do a solo 100% with Donkey Kong or Funky. I gave up on the WiiU attempt at 100% because well frustration but don't know if I'd feel satisfied with a Funky 100%.

I did 100% Funky run. Granted I had already 100% with DK back on Wii U.

It still felt satisfying though. And you can play with DK in Funky Mode. You aren't restricted in that sense. So why not do a DK Funky run?

Ended up doing a straight up Funky run 100% Kong letters and Puzzle Pieces. Funky obviously made the game a lot easier but it was good being able to just concentrate on finding all the hidden items and enjoy the flow of the game and it's great sound track.

The wife has enjoyed her play through as well and has replaced A Night in the Woods as her second most played game. Still a long way behind VS Super Mario Bros but could see this taking number 1 place.

Am I going mad but was there a short summery jingle on the opening screens of this on WiiU??

Does Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for Switch have any weird controls or issues as a result of the port from Wii U?

I found out Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for Switch has a horrible blue blinking dot on screen at all times (when docked). It’s part of the motion control so it kinda bounces around the whole time. Awful.

This happened because the Switch doesn’t have the same functionality as the Wii U so Nintendo had to adapt those functions to the Switch (poorly).

Does DKTF have anything weird like that?

@Dreamliner nothing wired, plays great. Enjoy

So I'm still ploughing through this game trying to get 100% as DK. I have all of the KONG letters in all of the worlds. Now started these K worlds. Managed to beat the first. The 2nd one I spent all evening trying to do. Starting to burn out, this game is a lot more hard core than I anticipated. However I feel these levels really enhance your platformer skills. Did these levels challenge you too, or is it just me?

@Benjoo: Would that be Bopopolis? That level is incredibly frustrating, but you'll get the rhythm down eventually. I became so used to it that I actually used it to farm balloons.

Granted, that was a couple of years ago now, so I kinda doubt that I've still got it. XD

Yes thats the one. With the owls. I got to the dual ferris wheel section and just fell short of the next section. The amount of bananas is helping me lower my balloon loss. It takes some concentration!

I've finally been able to put some more hours into this. I've probably been motivated by the upcoming release of NSMB.

Wow, this game is though... It could be me, but I have serious trouble finishing most levels, let alone getting all the letters and puzzle pieces. Some levels really could use some extra check points for me. Perhaps a bit more forgiveness on some of the platforming stretches could help too I think I took 15+ tries on world 2's final boss; I really hated to start over at the beginning after almost giving him the final hit in his last stage. In my opinion this game is not very well suited for co-op gaming. You just really have to follow your own pace (or the pace the level design dictates).

I'm halfway world 3 now. I guess the time has come to start using items a bit more. Don't get me wrong: I'm not complaining. The levels design, graphics, sound, etc. are pretty cool. Every time I finish a level I feel quite proud of myself.

At least I do know I won't be able to finish this before I get Mario. I can't imagine getting all the KONG's and puzzle pieces though, perhaps not even all secret exits without using Google.

@toiletduck it's a hard game indeed. Wondering whether I'd like New super mario bros if I liked this? Is the difficulty the Same?

Cheers

I got to 92% completion and then burnt out. Defo returning in the near future though. Some Amazing music in that game

@Benjoo NSMB is a totally different experience. I haven't played the last instalment, but I finished the other three quite easily. Finding all the secrets and golden coins was quite challenging in my experience though.

But for me NSMB is mainly about fun. Both in single player as in local multiplayer I've had a lot of fun with the Wii version. Though it's way easier than DK, it's not nearly as easy as the latest Kirby.

This game is definitely tough. Considering starting a Funky run just to finish it off.

@toiletduck The base story mode of Star Allies, sure. The Ultimate Choice and Heroes From Another Dimension? No chance, those are harder than the hardest NSMB levels (outside of Mario Maker of course).

@Grumblevolcano yeah that's true, but for me personally that feels more like 'hard to be hard' than 'hard to be fun' if you know what I mean. I like a good balance in the main game (which could be freely defined, I realize that).

Up to the last boss. I think I’m done though. That last boss is so cheap it’s really disappointing. The hit box seems almost random at times. I don’t actually think I’m going to bother finishing it. Shame, but sort of indicative of my feelings towards he whole game. Almost great, ruined by the frustration levels involved.

@electrolite77 keep at it and you'll beat it. Beat it solo on Funky mode and co-op on normal mode just last week. Took probably 100 tries, but once you beat it it feels good.
