Plot

Timber the Tiger's parents go on vacation and leave their son in charge of the island they live on, leaving him and his friends to race for fun. Their enjoyment is derailed when an evil, intergalactic, pig wizard named Wizpig arrives at peaceful Timber's Island and attempts to take over after he conquered his own planet's racetracks. He turns the four island's guardians: Tricky the Triceratops, Bubbler the Octopus, Bluey the Walrus and Smokey the Dragon into his henchmen. The only solution available to the island's inhabitants is to defeat Wizpig in an elaborate series of races that involves cars, hovercrafts, and airplanes. Drumstick, the best racer on the island, failed this challenge and was transformed into a frog by Wizpig's black magic. Timber sends a letter to his friend Diddy Kong to call for help and Diddy in turn recruits his friends Banjo the bear and Conker the squirrel while Timber gathers the remaining inhabitants of the island to help. They eventually complete all of Wizpig's challenges and confront Wizpig himself to a race and defeat him. Shortly afterwards, Wizpig left for his home planet, Future Fun Land. Fearing that Wizpig would again attempt to invade Timber's Island, the islanders travel to Future Fun Land for a second challenge. When Wizpig loses the second race, the rocket he rides on malfunctions and blasts him to a distant planet and peace returns to Timber Island for good. Intergalactic space is the physical space between galaxies. ... For other uses, see Pig (disambiguation). ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

Taj and Diddy Kong
Taj and Diddy Kong
  • Wizpig the alien pig wizard (the antagonist and final boss)
  • Taj the elephant genie is an ally character who changes the vehicle in which you travel around the island.
  • Tricky the Triceratops (a boss character, boss of Dino Domain). A styracosaurus called Tricky appears in Star Fox Adventures.
  • Bluey the walrus (a boss character, boss of Snowflake Mountain)
  • Bubbler the octopus (a boss character, boss of Sherbert Island)
  • Smokey the dragon (a boss character, boss of Dragon Forest)

None of these characters have appeared in any other Rare or Nintendo games to date, (except for the remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS) although Taj was scheduled to appear in a GameCube sequel, Donkey Kong Racing. The game was aborted when Rare was acquired by Microsoft in 2002, although it was rumored to reappear as an Xbox title called Sabreman Stampede. A portable sequel to the franchise, Diddy Kong Pilot, was also in development, which would have seen the return of Krunch. It too was redesigned following Rare's buyout as Banjo Pilot, which only stars Banjo and characters from his franchise. Taj and Wizpig appear in the DS remake as playable characters, as well as in their normal roles.

Battle Stages

There are several battle stages, each of which must be unlocked by obtaining a hidden key from each world:

  • Dino Domain: Fire Mountain - The objective is to hatch three dinosaur eggs. Players take eggs from the volcano in the center of the arena to their nest, which is identified by a picture of their character. When an egg is dropped in a nest, it will eventually hatch. Unhatched eggs in other player's nests can be stolen. As such, players have to defend their nests as well. The hidden key is in Ancient Lake.
  • Snowflake Mountain: Icicle Pyramid - The objective is to survive. Collecting red balloons will give the player missiles, which can be shot at opponents. Each player gets 8 bananas, and each shot takes 2 away; players are knocked out when they lose all 8, with the last remaining player the winner. There are also yellow balloons, which provide a shield, as well as the green balloons which drop obstacles that will also take away 2 bananas if hit. The hidden key is in Snowball Valley.
  • Sherbet Island: Darkwater Beach - The same objective as Icicle Pyramid, but on the water and small areas of land. The hidden key is in Crescent Island.
  • Dragon Forest: Smokey Castle - Similar to Fire Mountain, players must take bananas to their chest, which is identified by a picture of their character. Players can only carry 2 bananas at a time, and must put them into the chest by passing near it. Players can steal bananas from their adversaries by shooting them, but they can be shot too. Once bananas have been placed on a chest, they cannot be stolen. The hidden key is in Boulder Canyon. To get the key, you must ring the bell to slope up the bridge, and you'll make it if you're fast enough.
  • Future Fun Land does not have a battle stage, but evidence of a key hideout in Spaceport Alpha indicates there might have been a key in development.

If the player beats Wizpig in Future Fun Land and obtains the amulet pieces and gets all of the gold medals, the player will be able to play in a mode called Adventure 2. In this mode, all of the balloons are silver and the tracks are mirrored, meaning that they are flipped from left to right. The silver coins are in different locations in each track, often in harder to reach places.


Vehicles

There are three different vehicles in the game. The car and/or plane are not used for some tracks.

  • Car - The Car is the standard vehicle of the game. You can powerslide by holding the R Button. You will spin out if you hold the R Button too long, touch an oil slick, or get touched by an opponent with invincibility. It is the slowest vehicle to get around in the water. The only Zipper for the Car is the Chevron Zipper. Where available, the Car is the default vehicle on most tracks. The Car cannot be used in a completely aquatic level or on tracks that are unsuitable for the vehicle.
  • Hovercraft - The Hovercraft is a vehicle that has a blower in the rear end, and looks like it's inflatable. You can hop by pressing the R Button. If you hold R down, you will be able to make sharper turns while maintaining a high speed. You can also turn different directions without accelerating. This vehicle is basically used for in the water. The Hover is available in every track. Whale Bay, Pirate Lagoon, and Boulder Canyon are the Hover-Only tracks.
  • Plane - The Plane is used to fly. Tilt the Control Stick forward to descend, and backward to climb. Press the R Button twice repeatedly to loop-the-loop when you're going straight, or to perform a roll when you are turning left or right. On some tracks, the Plane is the default vehicle, eg. Hot Top Volcano, Everfrost Peak, Windmill Plains, Spaceport Alpha. The Plane is the fastest vehicle in the game.

Zippers

There are three types of Zippers that appear on different tracks. You will boost when you touch them.

  • Chevron Zipper - This is the standard Zipper of the game. It is on the ground. Any vehicle can be used on this Zipper.
  • Octagon Zipper - This Zipper is off the ground. Only the Hover and Plane can be used for this Zipper. This Zipper is also used to straighten your direction, and you will turn around when you hit this Zipper if you go the wrong way. A Hovercraft could even use it in the right place.
  • Arch Zipper - This Zipper only appears on Hover-Only tracks. This Zipper is also used to straighten your direction, and you will turn around when you hit this Zipper if you go the wrong way. In the Thunder Cove race from the remake, this zipper appears even though it's not a Hover-Only Track. It also appears in Frosty Village in single player in Tracks mode. The plane can use this Zipper

Power-Up Balloons

Throughout the courses, players can find balloons. There are five different kinds of balloons, each containing different weapons or items. When a balloon is collected, the item can be used immediately, or the player can wait for another balloon with the same color. When they pick up a second balloon of the same color, the item will be upgraded. A third balloon of the same color will upgrade the item to its maximum level (with the exception of the battle stages which allow only the 2nd upgrade; subsequent balloons will do nothing, in some courses with the green balloon only the 2nd upgrade mine will appear). If the player picks up a different colored balloon before they use the one they have the item is lost and begins at the first level of the new color. Below is a listing of items and the upgrades.

  • Red Balloons: Missiles - These are offensive weapons that can be shot at opponents. The 2nd upgrade gives the player a homing missile, and the third upgrade gives 10 regular missiles that can be replenished with one balloon if not all used up.
  • Green Balloons: Dropper- Obstacles that can be dropped behind the player to obstruct opponents. The default green balloon is an oil slick (or cloud of green gas in the air), the 2nd upgrade is a spiked mine, and the third is a bubble which will stop the player for several seconds.
  • Blue Balloons: Speed Boost - These give the player a speed boost just like a Zipper. Upgrades simply give the boost more power. Using these balloons without holding the acceleration button also increases the effectiveness of these balloons. The first upgrade is the Boost, the second upgrade is the Fast Boost, and the third upgrade is the Super-Fast Boost.
  • Yellow Balloons: Shield - These will give the player shields to protect them from missiles or droppers. Upgrades make the shield last longer. The shield can cause another driver to spin if he/she comes in contact with the shield.
  • Rainbow Balloons: Special - A magnet attack, which will attract the player towards the targeted opponent or pull him back in the case of the third upgrade.

Music

The music for the game was composed by David Wise, one of Rare's in-house composers. Using the Nintendo 64's cartridge format, the music in the game could change mood across the overworld or midway through a racetrack (retaining the same tune and tempo but using different instruments) without being hampered by load times. This was the first Rare game to use this technique, with it later being used in Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. David Wise in Rares sound studio (2004) David Wise (often also credited as Dave Wise or D. Wise) is a British video game music composer. ...

Being able to race in three vehicles (karts, hoverboats, and planes) allows for greater variety in the courses, which not only take place on the road but also extend to rivers, volcanos, and eventually outerspace (if you're lucky enough to get that far).
DKR has fixed that problem, but when it comes to the bosses, especially as you progress to the latter ones, it becomes a matter of patience and luck moreso than skill.
