Diddy Kong Racing for the DS is all about restoring peace and tranquillity to Timbers Island. The dastardly Wizpig has arrived and taken control, and it's up to Diddy and two friends - Dixie Kong and Tiny Kong - to banish him from the island by way of racing on the ground and in the air.

Adventure Mode is the heart of the Diddy Kong Racing DS single-player game. It's a progressive story mode that pits you against every challenge that each of the four worlds has to offer. Make your way through the game by collecting Golden Balloons. These will break Wizpig's spell and unlock course doors, allowing you to race for more balloons and access other areas. The game's free-roaming, non-linear structure ensures that, while the secrets of some courses will remain sealed until later in the game, you will never find yourself limited to a single track on which to race or in a single area to explore.

As you race - in karts, hovercrafts and planes - try and collect the balloons you find on the courses to collect power-ups. You can only collect one colour of balloon at a time, but you can collect up to three at a time to create weapons that are more powerful. There are multiplayer modes too, courtesy of the DS's Wi-Fi and local wireless facility, something that massively extends Diddy Kong Racing's longevity.
