Description

Donkey Kong and his friends get a hold of some Barrel Jets, propelling them through beaches, volcanoes and even outer space. This game requires the player to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, shaking them to make the jets accelerate while moving side-to-side to steer and raising both hands at once to jump.

The players travels through the tracks on a set path, collecting bananas to build up a meter to pull off moves and receive boosts while picking up weapons power-ups to slow down other racers while avoiding obstacles such as steel barriers and unbreakable barrels. It can support up to a four-players to compete in single races or a cooperative Grand Prix.
