Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (abbreviated to DKC2) is an adventurous platform game developed for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) produced by Rareware and published by Nintendo. It stars Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie Kong. Donkey Kong Country 2 was released on December 14, 1995[1][2] as a sequel to Donkey Kong Country and later followed by Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! in 1996. It was later also released on the Game Boy Advance in 2004 and is currently available for download on the Wii's Virtual Console, having become one of the most popular games of its age.[3]

Donkey Kong Country 2 begins after Donkey Kong has been kidnapped by Kaptain K. Rool, leaving Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie Kong to rescue him. Together, the two of them travel to various different and distinct parts of Crocodile Isle where the game is set. On the island, there are varying worlds. In total, there are eight.[3] Markedly different from the previous game, Donkey Kong Country 2 was praised for having excellent graphics and being much more of a challenge to the player than the previous game. Donkey Kong Country 2 has received much critical and commercial praise, having sold millions of copies worldwide on the SNES, making it the second best selling game of 1995 and the sixth best-selling game on the platform overall.[4][5][6][7]

Gameplay

In comparison with the original Donkey Kong Country, the game contains many new features. These include many hidden bonus stages with collectible tokens, called Kremcoins, which are rewarded for completing the level. The player can access these hidden levels by finding barrels with the letter "B" on the front. Kremkoins, once collected at the end of each hidden stage, can be used to unlock the "Lost World" and eventually the final ending.[8] There also exist rare "DK coins" in every standard level that are hidden by Cranky Kong. The placement of these coins gets progressively more cryptic, subsequently providing an extra challenge beyond reaching the end of each level. Level settings are now more diverse, although the staple ice, cave, and jungle settings remain from the first game.[6][9]
