DKC1 Bonus Room Archtypes.

Postby NES Boy » April 7th, 2009, 4:13 am

Inspired by Kiddy14's level archtype threads, I'll make some for the bonus room archtypes as well.

Unlike the level archtype threads, you have no limit to decide or change your vote. You may vote up to six of your selections.

The bonus room names are taken from the GBA port.

Here are the room descriptions:

Image
This title is slightly misleading, as you are put in a room lined with at least one Klap Trap, which is the only kind of enemy you will encounter in this kind of room. Attacking Klap Traps here will make them spit out bananas. You get more and more bananas each time you hit them until the Klap Traps disappear.

Image
You appear in a room filled with bananas. You can simply collect as many of them as you wish.

Image
Rooms where a more extravagant collectible is offered, such as KONG letters or extra lives. The most common form of this room is one where you launch youself to the top of the room from a Barrel Cannon.

Image
Short rooms that let you collect bananas along the way.

Image
The first variant is to spell out the word "KONG" correctly on the barrels to win the prizes. The second type is my favorite: There's a spinning wheel of letters above you, and you have to select the right letters to spell out the word within.

Image
These are roulette and guessing games involving barrels. The first variant lets you match up certain prizes and win them, while the second has you pick which barrel the prize is last seen in.

I loved all of the bonus room games! But I'd have to go with bash the baddies. :)

I'd go with Bash the Baddies for sure. I never got into the bonuses in DKC1 though.

Bash the Baddies and ones that you explore a bit, like the Animal Buddy ones.

Well bash the baddies are the most fun, mainly the ones with a bit of safety up high.

It would be cool if the bash the baddies got as crazy as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jep9loLBpjo :D but its unrealistic and very glitchy so it could probably never happen.

My favorite bonus levels are the Bash the Baddies ones. It's the best way to get extra lives, and they're even better when they have jumping Klaptraps.

Collect the bananas, it's fun and relaxing. I don't like bash the baddies... those Klaptraps get on my nerves.

Definitely going with...

Find the Exit

Yeah, FtE is simple, but I always found it fun.
I also think it's kind of funny that we can select up to 6 options, and there are only 6 options, so everybody could win! Yay!

Collecting the Bananas is my favorite. It encourages exploration and is plain fun to get them all.

I liked all of the bonuses, but my favourite would be Stop the Barrels. They all require a sharp eye and the 3-in-a-row one needs timing. As an added extra, the prizes vary from animal tokens to lives, to bananas, to... one banana. :x

Also, I think the Spell It Out variant where you spell KONG correctly also counts as a Stop The Barrel variant.

I love Stop the Barrel. My boyfriend will watch me play DKC and be like, "How in the hell do you do that?!" when I get the balloons. I can always tell where they are, and I usually make sure I avoid the golden animal buddies when I'm doing a speed run.

I really like the spelling out ones, they were cleverly done especially later in the game, where you had to spell out NINTENDO and animal buddy's names.

Even though bash the baddies can use some extra types of baddies, I love jumping from Clap Trap to the next. I like the one with the red ones the most.

I don't suppose I could vote for everything? I liked Bash the Baddies because of the Juggernaunt Klaptraps that just couldn't die. For some reason, I think Diddy was more effective when it came to that bonus.

He gets mad and bites DK's hand off.
