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.

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)

10? And got them back by jumping on the line of penguins.

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

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.

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.

I cleared Bopopolis not long ago. It took me 17 lives.

The hard parts are timing the bopping off the Hootz after shooting out of a barrel. Once you memorize that timing, you should be fine if you're good at bopping off enemies and you take your time.

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.

Last night, I completed 100% requirements:

-finish all levels (find all KONG letters)
-find all puzzles pieces.

The only item I used was Sqwaks and only when stuck on Puzzle pieces.

I've been toying with speedruns and Hard Mode, but have yet to commit to either one.

Do you unlock the secret world once you've found all KONG letters or do you also have to find the puzzle pieces?
