Timber the Tiger's parents go on vacation and leave their son in charge of the island they live on, leaving him and his friends to race for fun. Their enjoyment is derailed when an evil, intergalactic, pig wizard named Wizpig arrives at peaceful Timber's Island and attempts to take over after he conquered his own planet's racetracks. He turns the four island's guardians: Tricky the Triceratops, Bubbler the Octopus, Bluey the Walrus and Smokey the Dragon into his henchmen. The only solution available to the island's inhabitants is to defeat Wizpig in an elaborate series of races that involves cars, hovercrafts, and airplanes. Drumstick, the best racer on the island, failed this challenge and was transformed into a frog by Wizpig's black magic. Timber recruits a team of 7 racers: Diddy Kong, the first recruit; Conker (Dixie Kong on DS), recruited by Diddy; Banjo (Tiny Kong on DS), also recruited by Diddy; Krunch, Diddy's enemy who follows after him; Tiptup, an inhabitant of Timber's island; Pipsy, another inhabitant of Timber's island; and Bumper, another inhabitant of Timber's island. They eventually complete all of Wizpig's challenges and confront Wizpig himself to a race and defeat him. Shortly afterwards, Wizpig leaves for his home planet, Future Fun Land. Fearing that Wizpig would again attempt to invade Timber's Island, the islanders travel to Future Fun Land for a second challenge. When Wizpig loses the second race, the rocket he rides on malfunctions and blasts him to a distant planet and peace returns to Timber Island for good.

Additional Information

Mixing adventure elements with whimsical racing, Diddy Kong Racing features eight animal characters on a quest to defeat an evil space traveler named Wizpig. Unlike traditional go-kart racers in the mold of Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing includes both aircraft and watercraft as options. Each character's vehicle is individually rated in acceleration, weight, handling, and top speed. Taj, an elephant genie, serves as your guide through the interconnected areas making up the tropical island setting.

The default view is set behind your character as you race each course using small cars, airplanes, or hovercrafts. To achieve a first-place finish, you'll need to maximize the use of "zippers" and power-up items found in balloons. Running over zippers through the air or on the surface gives your craft a temporary boost in speed. Balloons contain a specific weapon or power-up, such as missiles, shields, or magnets, which can be strengthened over time. Collecting up to ten bananas on a course adds to your vehicle's top speed for the duration of a race.

Two play modes include "Adventure" and "Tracks." "Adventure" is comprised of the following events: Balloon Races, Boss Challenges, Silver Coin Challenges (collect a certain number of coins before placing first), Trophy Races, and T.T. Challenges (find four golden keys to access four multiplayer games). The primary objective in Diddy Kong Racing is to collect gold balloons by winning events, which opens doors leading to five worlds: Dino Domain, Snowflake Mountain, Sherbet Island, Dragon Forest, and Wizpig's Planet. Each world consists of five courses plus a boss encounter, and up to four players can race each unlocked course in the "Tracks" mode. The game also supports the Controller Pak to store ghost racers and the Rumble Pak for vibration feedback.
