|Donkey Kong Country: World of Bananas|
|Genre(s)||2D Platforming, Action Adventure|
During a particularly stormy night on Donkey Kong Island, Donkey Kong is sleeping soundly in his bed while Diddy Kong is somewhat agitated by the Lightning and Thunder, curiously Diddy notices ominous shadows moving around the house and goes out to investigate, however all the player can see is mysterious figures kidnapping Diddy Kong and stealing Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard as a large member of the group cackles in the storm.
The next Day, Donkey Kong wakes up to find Diddy Kong missing, curiously he goes around to Cranky Kong's home to find the old ape missing as well, beginning to become a bit concerned he checks at Dixie and Tiny's home to find it empty as well and even checks Chunky's home to find him missing as well. Donkey Kong begins to panic and then thinks that it might be his birthday, however does a quick count on his fingers and toes and concludes it's not and goes to check the Banana Hoard only to find it completely missing.
Stunned by this revelation Donkey Kong follows a mysterious trail of Banana Peels to find a pair of Kremlings chowing down on some Bananas making Donkey Kong furious, pounding his chest in rage. The Kremlings notice and in fear run for their lives from Donkey Kong who gives pursuit.
The Game functions similarily to previous Donkey Kong Games, the player controls Donkey Kong (and later on the other Kongs as well) as they progress through the story chasing after the Kremlings. The player is able to perform a variety of techniques such as Donkey Kong's Ape Roll, his ability to lift and throw barrels, his ground pounds as well as the various techniques of the other Kongs as well.
As the player progresses through the levels they will find a variety of collectables along the way which will unlock various bits of content dependent on how much of the collectible the player has collected and what collectible it is. The player will also encounter a large assortment of enemies along their travels ranging from Kremlings to native animals of the islands Donkey Kong visits. The game after the first location is complete borrows a concept from DKC3 in which the player navigates between locations via modes of transport, in this sense the player can discover secret levels and minigames to gain extras, although the player does not need to upgrade their mode of transport after each location, instead completing a location reveals new territory to explore.
There are a total of 11 Playable Characters in Donkey Kong Country: World of Bananas, Funky Kong returns to being the Shop Vendor for the Kongs while the other 6 Playable Kongs from the last game return as playable. In addition 5 new Kongs are playable.

She is extremely agile, able to reach further in her jumps than DK.|
Paradise Bird Island
|Simple-minded yet kind-hearted individual, Chunky is by far the strongest and largest of teh Kongs, towering over even Donkey Kong in size, this however is shown to be at times a disadvantage for him as he is rather clumsy, often tripping over his two feet and his heavy weight leaves him being a rather weak jumper.|
Hot Top Mountain
|A mysterious relative of the DK Family, no one is quite sure what relation Lanky Kong has to the group although his goofy-attitude and helpful nature often lend him to aiding the DK Family and becoming an honorary member.

|Said to have a real competitive drive, Ninja Kong believes that after his defeat at the hands of DK that if he continues training he will soon beat the ape again. DK seemingly unaware of this plan actually trains with Ninja Kong and the two seem to have developed a sort of brother-rivalry. Ninja Kong often acts mischieviously, attempting to trip up DK in their races and competitions although this is easily reversed on him by Diddy Kong or Cranky Kong.|
|The toughest of the Warrior Kongs, Sumo Kong's massive belly gives him extra endurance and an incredibly powerful Belly Slam. In addition, Sumo Kong is able to throw enemies about very easily although due to his massive weight is rather slow and has poor jumping abilities.|
