There is a lot for Donkey Kong to do and a lot of ways to do it. So the moves that you can pull off in the game are hugely important. Not only that, but it makes sense for players to know all the moves before getting too deep into the game because they are not revealed all at once in the beginning even though you can use them all right from the start. Our guide gives the details on every Donkey Kong move - starting on page 9 - which can help you avoid backtracking to spots once you know what to do.

DK lives in a crazy world with crazy denizens that are against him. The enemies section starting on page 24 outlines every one of these foes. It tells of their attacks and their weaknesses. Some need multiple steps to dispose of them, like the Pinchlys. Having the tactics at hand to deal with each enemy will ensure you don’t unnecessarily lose lives.

The best and biggest portion of the Donkey Kong Country Returns guide are the level guides. Every single level in every world, including all the bonus ones, are covered with a unique, exclusive map. Every pick up, all puzzle pieces and K-O-N-G letters, is not only labeled on the map but is explained in the walkthrough below. Check out pages 30 and 31, the very first level. You’ll see that every pick-up is mapped out and then, with the corresponding text and screen shot, they each get individual attention on how to grab them.
