Mastered! / Gemeistert!! Thanks 4 the set. Only the "Collect any 5 balloons as ..." achievements are not necessary imo. And an achievement for winning the race against second Wizpig in mirrormode would be nice. The set ends with "47 balloons in mirrored mode and before the "final race" against Wizpig 2; at least when you play the game in my order... but all in all I had much fun with this set.. thanks again.

At least those force you to play with every character, as they've all got their own stats. But they're very easily cheesed as nothing stops you from just making a new save and getting some extremely easy early game ones. But yeah feels weird to have to do a 2nd playthrough for everything except the final boss.
Gorgar 13 Mar 2023 01:28
Instead of the five balloons cheevos for each character, there should be specific races tied to each character. For instance, Pipsy is not very good at racing against the Penguin boss, so beating the penguin during the rematch would be a good Pipsy achievement. Also, this game could be mastered without playing the final trophy race or final Wizpig race on Adventure Two, so trophies for those should be added as well.

Mastered! Thank you for this amazing set, it's balanced just right. Some achievements are hard but nothing that's not doable with a little dedication. I second what was said in the other comments: an achievement for the final Wizpig race in Adventure 2, and one for the Space world trophy race would make the set really complete.
Thanks again!

Mastered. This was an awesome set that for the most part felt pretty balanced. This was one of my first games among many growing up but it took me forever to beat it for the first time even longer to unlock TT. I’d say on n64, I’d usually use either Tiptup or Pipsy. But on the steam deck, I found Diddy pretty good for the most part until TT was unlocked. TT could then be used to beat the developer times, Frosty Village was the hardest car challenge in time trials. I’m not a big fan of the hovercraft, and the hardest level for that in time trials was Pirate Lagoon in my opinion. At slopes AND sharp turns, I found it best to hold down on the throttle (r + b at sharp turns as well) and do the speed trick on the straight paths with the flowing water currents. Thanks.

According to RetroArch, it took me a little under 19 hours to master this set (18h50m to be more precise). That included some multiplayer races and adventuring as well. Thanks for this set giving me an excuse to go back and play through it all again. I'm not sure if I ever played through the entirety of Adventure Two before this.

My first Mastery. Beating the Developer's Time on Haunted Woods was the worst part.

Mastered. Thank you for this amazing set. This was a perfect balance. Back in 1997 I couldn’t afford an N64 but I entered a sweepstakes at my local Target and won the console. It came with this game, and it was the only game I owned for more than a year. This was a stroll down memory lane, as I hadn’t played DKR in 25 years. Had lots of fun working my way through this set.

The "rare challenge" ones are pretty unnecessary.
Morkymoose 17 Feb 2024 04:57
I'm really sorry if this has been answered to death but I just learned about all this. I wanted to see if Loading my finished game would unlock all my achievements that have been fulfilled but it only popped one. I feel like I Have to have hit multiple just from doing the whole game. Is that something that doesn't happen? or did I mess it up somehow by not having the correct rom for the emulator the first couple times I opened the game?
FireSonic 17 Feb 2024 05:05
You can't just use a save file you completed to earn achievements. its to protect against cheating and just using a save file you find online.
Morkymoose 17 Feb 2024 05:07
Oh duh That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the info lol

Mastered! Great set, great game. Never actually beat the game before until now but i loved this game growing up.
BBBigezzz 25 Feb 2024 21:07
Mastered! Fun set that lets you explore everything the game has to offer. I would highly recommend getting TT before trying the dev time challenges..eZ
SNKfan94 28 Feb 2024 05:33
Mastered! And it's the first time I decided to go Hardcore Mode, and completely master it, and like it was stated earlier, you'll probably NEED to unlock T.T before attemting ANY developer time trials, as he's totally broken once you know how to use him properly. The worst developer time trial I'd say goes to Snowball Valley in particular. Seriously, you'll NEED the ''Mash the A Button to accelerate much faster in the Car'' trick, and don't forget to collect as many bananas as possible, yes, even in Time Trial Mode, Bananas increase your speed, which is VITAL for most developer time trials. But anyways, I can finally stop having to mash the A Button just to go super fast in racetracks with cheevos that require the use of a Car, such as the Ancient Lake Time Trial cheevos, as the trick doesn't work with Hovercrafts or Planes at all, as a heads-up!

#M125 This game really means a lot to me, I always enjoyed this over mario kart, imo mario kart doesn't shine until double dash. The music, the stages, the differences of the vehicles was always more appealing to me growing up! Plus the game was centered around the adventure mode, I will admit this game does a massive difficulty spike if you don't know a few tricks. I highly recommend checking out this video it helped me big time. I didn't know about the tapping A instead of holding it or letting go of A before a zipper to get a longer boost!

I have to admit frosty village dev time was tough! Once you get the tricks and use learn to master T.T. then you should be golden! If I wasn't using T.T. I was always using pipsy and sometimes Diddy Kong.
WashYourHands 22 Mar 2024 02:53
Was a really awesome and fair set so kudos to the devs. It did seem a tad anti-climatic though to not finish off the set with racing Wiz Pig for the 2nd time but regardless it was a good set.

As others have said if you focus on time trials before you start Adventure 2 it should be pretty easy. T.T. is hands down the best racer.
SleepyheadDree 23 Mar 2024 22:35
Badged! The developer times wrecked me on some courses, Frosty Village in particular, but after much persistance was finally able to get it done. Master max zipper boost and drift turning and your life will be much easier.
Yordlebreeder 4 Apr 2024 10:27
God what an amazing game bogged down by at times absolute tedium. Rareware in their collectibles phase putting it in a racing game.....😬

But honestly even that can't ruin the fun. This has some of the most satisfying kart racing mechanics you'd see up until Double Dash. Even if you have to replay each stage THREE TIMES 😒 (Fun set too!)
Kit3210 5 Apr 2024 05:58
After some sweat and being close to tears at certain points, I finally mastered this! I'm happy to have made this game my first mastered one. Thanks for the set! It was challenging, but fair and fun. :)
