* ArtEvolution: The original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' trilogy featured a realistic art style ''and'' cartoony characters with realistic fur and textures. This game goes for more of a "painted cartoon" look and adds cartoony effects and animations to top it off. The fact that the series changed hands (formerly {{Rare}}, currently [[RetroStudios Retro]]) has something to do with it.

''Donkey Kong Country Returns'' is a 2010 {{platform game}} produced by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and RetroStudios (of ''Videogame/MetroidPrime'' fame); it's the first entry in the VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry series since ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry3DixieKongsDoubleTrouble'' in 1996 and the first in the series canon since ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' in 1999. The plot this time concerns the Tiki Tak Tribe, a group of evil tikis that have hypnotized the animals of DK Island, forcing them to steal Franchise/DonkeyKong's treasured hoard of bananas for their own [[EvilPlan nefarious plans]]. Along with his best friend and [[{{Pun}} second banana]] Diddy Kong, the big guy sets out to get them back.

** "Peaceful Pier" has an area during the rocket barrel sequence where a crosshair follows you, then stops so the crabs on the ship can fire an anchor at you; this is likely a reference to the "Krack-Shot Kroc" level in ''[=DKC3=]''.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartsAreHealth: Hearts consists of your LifeMeter, and hearts refill it.
* HeartContainer: DK himself starts out with two hearts in his LifeMeter. Finding Diddy Kong adds two more to bring the count to four. There are also two real Heart Container items that can be bought in the store. There's the Heart Boost, which adds one extra heart, and Banana Juice, which expands DK's hit points to ''ten'' hearts.


Added DiffLines:

* LifeMeter: The first real use of one in a Donkey Kong Country game (2D at least).
