I've beaten the game and have got gold speed trials all the way up to up to world 5. Starting 6 tomorrow... getting gold, especially within the top 50 global rank, can be frustrating, but my god.. is it addicting. This is possibly my favorite Wii U game now. After I get all the gold runs I'll beat it on hard mode and collect all the puzzle pieces.. since I still have to collect them in about half the levels.

Anyway I actually came here to ask a question.. Is there any way I can check my played time on this game? Is there a menu somewhere on the Wii U that lets me check all my games play times? I swear the 3DS had one.. I could be wrong though. Thanks.

While the Wii U does have an activity log on the Home Menu, it only logs the last 30 days or so...so jot it down on a paper or something.

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

Actually you can go back to any date, just the other week i was checking my playtime from when i fist got my wii u; the christmas after launch.

what everyone's favorite support character? i know alot of the reviews say that dixie trumps the rest, but i still love Diddy. his jetpack feel super fun to use and makes stomping chains of enemies a breeze. although dixie does have her uses, i find she feels a little floaty and just doesnt have the "flow" you get from diddy. I imagine diddy would be faster for speed runs too. although i just beat the world 6 boss last night and havent tried any speed runs yet.

put it on.

^Diddy is really only used for water level speed runs because of his jet-boost in the water. Makes him really useful. I've been doing tons of speed runs

My personal favorite is probably Cranky. Dixie is alright, makes things a little too easy in some cases though. One cool thing I never even realized you could do until I started the speed trials.. you can roll on water. If you have any of the three supports you can roll right across water, lol. It's awesome. I'm stubborn and try to get high speeds in runs before I look at another persons play-through. Second level had a really fast speed and I couldn't figure it out for the life of me.. I watched a video, within 15 seconds a guy is rolling across water and blew my mind, seeing as I went through the whole game without knowing this. Maybe I'm just dumb and never figured this out.

It doesn't seem intuitive, so don't feel dumb about it. This is actually the first I've heard of it. I've been doing sporadic speed runs in random worlds so perhaps I just missed the levels where it was useful.

You will hate life on 4-K and World 5 though - that's when the hard begins

10? I must suck at platformers lol. Yeah I'm on world 5 in the game now. Slowly but surely. I went back to SM3DW last night to take it easy.

2-K was probably the hardest level in the game for me. I have a problem with always rushing in though.. so I die a lot, even when i wasn't doing the speed trial, I was playing it as if I were. It probably took me an hour to beat it. Took me a couple hours to beat it on speed trial and get gold, I ranked at like 28 I think. A couple days ago anyway, it's probably changed since then.. I know I can do better so I might come back to it after I get gold on all the other levels.

Though I told myself to stay away from platformers (I feel like I've been overexposed) I'm developing an insane level of attraction towards this game.

Top-10 games I played in 2017: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (WiiU) - Rogue Legacy (PS3) - Fallout 3 (PS3) - Red Dead Redemption (PS3) - Guns of Boom (MP) - Sky Force Reloaded (MP) - ...

You need to beat all the K levels to get to World 7.

You can basically say the K levels are part of world 7.
Also, with the exception of 2-K and maybe 5-K and 6-K, if you can't beat the K levels there's no way you'd beat the world 7 levels anyway.

This is the best platformer since Returns. I really hope this game is successful enough for Retro to make a trilogy out of the DKC games.
I have to say the only complaint I have about the game, is the still boring bonus puzzle room stages and the fact that when you play in multiplayer, you still are pooled into the first players life count. These are very minor complaints though. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am with this gorgeous Nintendo platformer.

Actually, 4-K was kinda mid-range for Temple levels, IMO. Lemme try and put them in order based on my playstyle:

3-K < 1-K < 5-K < 4-K < 6-K < 2-K

The thing is, there's no definitive order. 1-K rushes you. Some people have no trouble with this, while others can't handle the pressure. 2-K requires precision, muscle memory, and persistence. This is something a lot of platforming gamers struggle with, but can come naturally to others, so it makes sense that no one agrees on how hard it is. 3-K gives you plenty of time, but it's all about the timing. I'm a Rhythm gamer, so this is a walk in the park, for me. 4-K is somewhat of an all-round of the previous three. It does tend to push you through the level, and it will require a few tries, but it doesn't do anything to the degree of the previous temple level. It continues in this manner, with 5-K being classic, hard as balls platforming and 6-K bringing absolutely everything together. These levels are all tough, though, and even more, they're extremely unforgiving, half of them not even giving you a partner to handle the level with.

Which one is the hardest? I'd say 6-K is the all-around hardest level of the six. It will be consistently hard, no matter who's playing it. Everyone will struggle with it, and while most won't call it the hardest, everyone will likely put it in their top 3.

Also, to that rolling on the water thing? This was around in the original DKC games. Speed runners knew about it so early because it's part of some of the other DKC speed runs. Still, it's a really cool trick and don't feel bad. I did the same thing.

I don't know if I'll ever see World 7, I can't be doing with the frustrations of the K levels. I'll just watch the levels on YouTube.

Still, I managed to complete the game and grab every letter piece, I'm happy with that.

Amazing game

k-2 must of took me at least an hour last night. but man it felt good grabbing that present! on to the bright savannah tonight to round up the last of my kong letters and hopefully take down k-3.

i firmly believe this to be the best 2d platformer yet, however i do hope everyone leaves the genre alone for the rest of wii us life span now. lets see what the wii u can do in the 3rd dimension.

*except maybe metroid, id love to see a new 2d entry in HD.

I think you'll find that 3-K will be well within your abilities, though it may take you a few tries to get the rhythm down. I didn't have much trouble sight reading this one, but the puzzle pieces had a tendency to get me killed.

Also, I don't want them to leave the genre alone for the rest of the Wii U's life span. Just long enough to get some good variety on the console before returning to what the console had to start with. Besides, I would LOVE some DKCTF and NSMBU DLC. The last DLC pack we got (NS Luigi U) was amazing. I hope Nintendo does more stuff like that.

And you should check out Knytt Underground and Teslagrad. They aren't Metroid, but I bet you'll see the Metroid influence.

I'd kinda like to see Cranky Kong Country DLC for this game like New Super Luigi U was for NSMB U.
