Yikes!

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

I think I had 99 at the end of like, level 1-4...something crazy like that.

I would have never guessed Weezing was so useful until I played a HeartGold Nuzlocke!

I noticed Monster Games during the credits! Does this mean that they worked on the game so they can bring it easily to the 3DS? What do you guys think?

By the way: Am I the only one who is dissapointed that this game has much LESS levels then Returns! The game should have had just as much, or even more levels!

Don't know what to say about Monster games, but honestly, no, I'm not disappointed about the number of levels, as they're also much longer levels. There's actually more content than in DKCR, and a "Hard Mode" to keep the challenge going.

Did this come from WiiRikeToPray's channel? Because I cannot even imagine how you'd run out of lives, otherwise. They had Spence killing himself ever few seconds. That's the only reason they ever got a game over. @[email protected] This game may be a tad too generous with the lives. They lose all meaning, when you never drop below 80.

That screen is funny I disagree on the lives part though. Some levels make you bleed lives fast just to get the letters or the puzzle pieces right. It's a whole different ballgame when you're at 45 and drop to 28 within a few attempts...

The anatomically awesome evello is bringing the fame and glory!

Letters and Puzzle Pieces do make me bleed lives, too, but I still rarely drop below 80 lives, since even the dreaded K levels have plenty of life-giving opportunities and bananas to keep you out of a game over.

You know one thing I really love about this game? You don't have to beat every level with all three partner-Kongs. I so thought that they were going to pull a 3D World and make you beat the levels with everybody in order to 100% the game. I know that if you have lots of friends to play 3D World with you that beating the levels with everybody isn't as bad, but I only have my girlfriend to play co-op with and trust me when I say that it gets tedious to beat all 12 worlds 3 times over.

Don't get me wrong I love 3D World, but frig Luigi and Toad are useless in a number of levels.

My game library ranges from Mario Kart to Call of Duty to Tales of Xillia to Diablo 3 to Forza. To me gaming is about having fun - not blindly supporting only one company while thumbing your nose at "the evil other systems."

"no, I'm not disappointed about the number of levels, as they're also much longer levels"

I don't know if they are longer, though they feel pretty long! Only the rocketbarrel and minecart levels seem very short!

I wouldn't be surprised if the soundtrack for this game was one of the platinum rewards for Club Nintendo... I actually think it would be cool if they sold the Snow Flake belt buckle that the owls wear. My friend pointed it out to me and since then I can't stop looking at them on the owls, lol. That'd be a different reward from Club Nintendo.

I ran out

I died about 40 times on 2-K & 20 times on 5-K, & then some more trying to get KONG letters. Once you reach the point where you have 4 lives left, it's pretty easy to get a Game Over.

You can always go to Funky & buy a load of life's, but I don't want to use the shop personally.

ALRIGHT! I have completed World 7!

So, since I'm willing to bet that I'm not the only person here to try Hard Mode, do we have any idea what the blue KONG letters are for, or is it just bragging rights? I seriously want to know, because I'd like to know if getting them all is a worth-while endeavor before I embark on the nigh impossible journey that comes with true 100% completion (200% completion?)

Also, if you take down all the owls in the first long run in 2-K, including three bounces on the big one, you get a life, so running out of lives really shouldn't happen on that level. Heck, I was at 99 after I beat it, and I must've died like 60 times or more!

I think it's just or 200%.

Yeah, I know. It just takes forever to kill them all IMO. I never bother to do it.

Upon closer inspection, it appears that getting all Blue KONG letters in a world will unlock one more bonus image, and doing it in all seven worlds will unlock the final seven bonus images. Even so, it appears you get 100% after completion of World 7, so after this point, you're just driving yourself nuts with insane difficulty for next to no reason.

EDIT: I was wrong.

Wrong about what? Does anyone know how to unlock the final 7 images in world 7?

Haven't beaten the "final boss" yet although I'm not sure how "final" it is given everyone's talking about World 7 here. Anyways so far I've found it to be a lot easier than Returns but I really, really don't enjoy the bosses. It's not that they're hard it's just that they're way too long. I had the same issue with Returns honestly. I've gotten to what I assume is the last pattern in the world 6 boss (simple -> ice -> canon) and hit him twice before death. Gotten to that last pattern about three or four times so far. What's annoying is that if you mess it up you fall in the lava and it's insta-death. So, lots of rage-quit.

edit: spoke too soon, just beat it

Also the lives, haven't gone anywhere near running out of lives. Really I wish they'd just throw away the idea of lives if they're that easy to get especially when, I assume, Game Over isn't that much of a setback. Just my 2c

................. other than that, lots of fun. Especially the underwater sections. I just spent most of the game dreading the bosses and backtracking to play older levels again rather than face the current boss.

I totally get what you're saying. Bosses in this game get so ragey because they just take so long to beat, but they're all a treat, IMO, and a lot of fun, aside from the issue of length. I also absolutely adore all of the boss music, in this game. Especially Pompy, the Presumptuous's theme.

@Edwin I got all the blue KONG letters from World 1, but no reward, so I dunno. (Before you ask, I also beat levels 1-K and 1-Boss in hard mode, so that's certainly not it.)

As for these last seven pictures, I have my theories, but it'll be a LOOOONG time before I can even come close confirming them.
