I'm a bit late to the party but man what a game.I'm only on the boss of World 2 but I'm probably having my most fun moments on my Wii U so far.Level 2-3 Horn Top Hop really is something special,the part with the 3 owls blowing the horns in harmony with the incredible music was just magical for me.I know it's only going to get better too.Right back to it

It really is a blast. ^^ Can't think of any 2D Platformer that comes anywhere near it in just how amazing it is. The difficulty is perfect. The sound design is perfect. The graphics are perfect. The controls are super tight, but not the least bit restrictive, and when you get hit, it almost never feels like the game's fault. DKCR and Tropical Freeze make up the ultimate argument for nut-crackingly hard and deliciously difficult.

I'm replaying this now! It's such a wonderful game. Much better than Returns, which I also thought was great. I remember at first thinking it was a bit short, but I keep going back to it, so I think it was just the perfect length. Long enough to let you fall in love, not so long that you get bored of it by the time you're done.

Might be my favorite WiiU game. (Don't tell Pikmin 3 you heard me say that.)

Huh. That kinda sounds a bit like Super Meat Boy to me. It's a game I feel no shame in revisiting because it's just long enough to make me want to come back without being so long that I feel like it's too much of an investment. Also helps that levels are SUPER short making exit points extremely abundant, but God help you, if you take on The Kid's levels!

Agreed. Really fun so far!

Probably my favorite Wii U game too. So far I've done a 200% run, and then a 100% run six or so months later. Come to think of it, it might just be time for a third playthrough.

Unlocking the Kid is what stops me bothering with another playthrough.

Edmund did a great job of making those three levels feel like I Wanna Be the Guy. Too great of a job. XD

I love this game and its perfect for playing for a couple of hours a week but once I have done everything it has to offer I can't imagine coming back to this for a long time. Don't get me wrong I love it but I'm just not into second playthroughs so we will probably be playing the NX by the time it comes round time to replaying this. I think the audio work definitely deserves some praise they nailed that perfectly.

Currently Playing:

Switch: Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Doom and Arms.

WiiU: Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival and Mario Party 10.

N64: Donkey Kong 64 and Jet Force Gemini.

Xbox One: Battlefield 1 and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Well, it's probably in the top 10, but come on, David. You're the guy who wrote "Forest Interlude", "Stickerbrush Symphony", "Aquatic Ambience" and "In a Snow-Bound Land"!

And if we're talking just Tropical Freeze, "Scorch 'N' Torch" and "Grassland Groove" are both higher in my list.

It's up there with some of his best for me. My favorite track is Funky Waters, but there are so many other great songs that I could mention. To me, David Wise has always struck the perfect balance between atmosphere and catchiness with his music. They fit the environment perfectly while still being memorable enough to stand on their own.

Seashore War is definitely one of my most favorite songs as well, though I like Sawmill Thrill, Stickerbush Symphony, Krook's March, and Mining Melancholy more. I can definitely see how it's his personal favorite though. Not only does it fit the atmosphere of the level really well and have an excellent melody, it probably also has more emotion in it than any of his other songs. It's absolutely perfect for the scenario, like you finally made it back home, but it's been taken over by snowmads, but you're going to make sure you're triumphant in reclaiming th island.

I like makin' games!
Future Pinball games!
Petit Computer games!!
and SmileBASIC games!

Can't we just agree that every single track in this game is a masterpiece?

It is true how much emotion this game has. It's like Nintendo doesn't need to tell much of a story for you to imagine a story and be immersed through gameplay, these gorgeous graphics and soothing music.

That's so true. A game has never made me want to bop a walrus Viking leader on the head so badly.

Well, it's not every game that you fight a walrus Viking leader.

Also this is definitely one of my favourite Wii U games, one of my favourite levels was the Lion King-like one.
