Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is a racing game featuring Donkey Kong and the other Kongs against their Kremlings foes. Rather than karts or planes, the players use jet-powered barrels attached to their waists for maximum speed.

Conception

The game originally was meant to be a Gamecube game that would make use of the DK Bongos. It was then known as Donkey Kong Bongo Blast, but was renamed to Donkey Kong Jet after it was announced as a Wii title. After E3 2007, it was again renamed to Donkey Kong Barrel Blast.

Gameplay

In keeping with the DK Bongo gameplay, the player instead 'drums' the Wii Remote and Nunchuk up and down, as if using a drum. To jump, both are lifted up at the same time. Motion sensing is additionally used for attacking foes or using items.
