Donkey Kong Jungle Beat is a 2004 platform and score-attack video game developed and published by Nintendo for the GameCube. It is part of the Donkey Kong franchise and follows the gorilla Donkey Kong as he sets out to defeat a series of evil kings and conquer the jungle. Jungle Beat is designed for use with the DK Bongos, a bongo drum-style GameCube controller previously used with the Donkey Konga series of music games. The player uses the DK Bongos to control Donkey Kong through various side-scrolling levels as he collects bananas, swings on vines, chains combos, rides animals, and defeats enemies and bosses.
DK Jungle Beat speedruns are highly movement based, and the categories are separated based on banana or beat counts.
This speedrun optimally uses the Bongo controller!
Movement is fairly straight-forward and many categories make use of the "Infinite Wall Clap" glitch which allows many sections to be skipped via "zipping".
