: : : : : Diddy Kong Racing

[edit] Background

Diddy Kong and his friends race each other in cars, hovercrafts, and airplanes. Along the way, players gather Gold Balloons, power-ups, keys, and Silver Coins to help them win. There are also bosses to defeat, multiplayer games, time trials, and battle levels that add variety to the game.

[edit] Features

  • Fun racing game, similar to Mario Kart 64.
  • Pick up power-ups, shoot the other racers, and drive over zippers that give you a quick speed boost.
  • 3 drivable vehicles: car, plane, and a water hovercraft.
  • Boss races pit you against a giant animal (triceratops, a giant walrus, a squid, and a dragon).
  • Tracks are very detailed, and the game moves fairly quickly.
  • Multiplayer is very fun and addictive.
