Like the original, DKC 2 sees gorilla brute DK in the hands of the enemy, whilst players follow the platforming shenanigans of Diddy Kong and ape-chick Dixie. Assuming control of either character, players must combine both apes' abilities in order to defeat myriad crocs and negotiate gaping chasms. DKC 2 also sees the return of the much-loved barrel-hopping as a means of transportation in the game's more devious stages.

Much of the adventure requires impeccable timing - a skill developed only with practice and trial-and-error. Again, players can ride numerous animal creatures, and banana hoarding is as prominent as it ever was.
