DONKEY KONG JUNGLE BEAT and DONKEY KONGA!
had so much fun with these games.
Oh yes, forgot about Jungle Beat - possibly my favourite 2D platformer ever, despite the slightly repetitive bosses. Didn't the Mario Galaxy team make that? Very disappointing that the DK race game which was scheduled for the GameCube and would have utilised the bongos got shifted to the Wii and shafted by the switch to Wiimote controls.
