    -Believe it or not, this is the first FAQ I've completed. Hard to 
    believe, eh? Well, now I can concentrate on just one FAQ at a time. I'm 
    gunna try and make major updates to some of my small FAQs (Mario Golf),

    2.	INTRODUCTION
    
    Hi, welcome to another of my FAQs. I've seen a lot of good FAQs for 
    DK64 on Gamefaqs, but none specifically geared toward the bonus games. 
    So, I'm writing this guide for the bonus games in DK 64. Hope it helps 
    you!
    
    The way I'll do this is I'll separate them by level. First, we'll 
    have the DK Isles bonus games, then Jungle Japes, and so on, and each 
    level will be divided by character. After that section is a list of all 
    the bonus games. Mabye in a further version I'll say how to get to each 
    bonus game.
    
    NOTE: Please visit my DK64 website, DK64 Isle!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. BONUS GAMES (LIST FORM)
    
    	In this nice beautiful section I will list all the bonus games in 
    the game, all variations for each, and strategies for each.
    
    BATTY BARREL BANDIT!
    	
    	This bonus game is basically a slot machine. To win, you need to 
    get a certian number of jackpots in a certian time. A jackpot is for 
    golden bananas lined up. Variations are:
    	 - 3 jackpots in 40 seconds: DK Isles
    	 - 3 jackpots in 45 seconds: Frantic Factory
    	 - 3 jackpots in 45 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    
    PERIL PATH PANIC!
    
    	This bonus game is similar to a shooting gallery. You have a time 
    to save the banana faries from the Klaptraps as they fly across the 
    screen. To save them, you must shoot the Klaptraps. Variations are:
    	 - 10 banana faries in 60 seconds: DK Isles
    	 - 6 banana faries in 60 seconds: Frantic Factory
    	 - 8 banana faries in 60 seconds: Fungi Forest
    
    BIG BUG BASH!
    
    	You control a giant flyswatter, trying frantically to smash the 
    required number of bugs in the time alloted. It's kinda hard at first, 
    but gets easier when you practice. Try to use the swatter just before 
    the fly flies under the shadow. Variations are:
    	 - 8 flies in 60 seconds: DK Isles
    	 - 4 flies in 60 seconds: Angry Aztec
    	 - 6 flies in 60 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    	 - 10 flies in 60 seconds: Creepy Castle
    	
    SEARCHLIGHT SEEK!
    	
    	Uh-oh, this one's actually kinda challenging! In the time allowed, 
    you must kit all the Klaptraps by shooting them from above. The catch? 
    You must use a flashlight to see! As with Big Bug Bash, try to shoot 
    just before the Klaptraps step in the aimer thingie. Variations are:
    	 - 10 Klaptraps in 60 seconds: DK Isles
    	 - 4 Klaptraps in 60 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    	 - 8 Klaptraps in 60 seconds: Crystal Caves
    	 - 10 Klaptraps in 60 seconds: Creepy Castle
    
    KREMLING KOSH!
    	
    	Using a watermelon-shooting cannon, you must shoot enough 
    Kremlings in the time allowed. Using the control stick, aim at a barrel, 
    and when a Kremling pops out, shoot! The green ones are worth one, but 
    hitting an elusive red Kremling to get 2 points. Remember to reload 
    after 5 shots by shooting the middle barrel. Sometimes, I just like to 
    circle around the barrels firing like crazy, then letting go of the 
    control stick, which points the aimer at the reload barrel. I reload, 
    then fire like crazy again. Variations:
    	 - 28 Kremlings in 60 seconds (no joke): DK Isles
    	 - 18 Kremlings in 60 seconds: Angry Aztec
    	 - 22 Kremlings in 60 seconds: Fungi Forest
    	 - 25 Kremlings in 60 seconds: Creepy Castle
    
    MINE CART RACE
    	
    	In a mine cart, try to collect the required number of coins before 
    the exit. Hitting something makes you lose 3 coins, so jump and duck! 
    Variations:
    	- 50 coins: Jungle Japes
    	- 25 coins: Creepy Castle
    	- 50 coins: Fungi Forest
    
    SPLISH SPLASH SALVAGE!
    
    	In a big barrel, swim down to collect the coins in the time. 
    Direction is a hard-to-see thing, because the camera is in a fixed 
    position on a wall. Variations:
    	- 10 coins in 60 seconds: Jungle Japes
    	- 8 coins in 60 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    
    SPEEDY SWING SORTIE!
    
    	This is a quick test of your vine-swinging skills. Don't sweat the 
    time, you'll always have plenty of it. Just climb up the first tree and 
    swing on the vines. Variations are:
    	- 10 coins in 25 seconds: Jungle Japes
    	- 12 coins in 60 seconds: Fungi Forest
    
    MAD MAZE MAUL!
    	
    	Just run through the maze killing every baddie. I can't really 
    give any more tips, just don't stay in one place too long. Variations 
    are:
    	- 60 seconds: Jungle Japes
    	- 60 seconds: Crystal Caves
    
    MINE CART MAYHEM!
    
    	Wow, you'll have to do this one a few times before your adventure 
    is over, so you better practice! Basically, You're in a mine cart, going 
    in circles, trying to avoid the TNT barrels. You can change tracks by 
    pushing left or right, and speed up or slow down by pushing up or 
    pulling down respectively. If you've only got to survive a few more 
    seconds, just try braking. You might make it! Variations:
    	- 30 seconds with one TNT barrel: Jungle Japes
    	- 45 seconds with two TNT barrels: Gloomy Galleon
    	- 60 seconds with two TNT barrels: Creepy Castle
    
    STEALTHY SNOOP!
    
    	In this boring, dull, sometimes hard game, you must sneak past the 
    guards in a maze and make it to the end before the time runs out. The 
    guards use flashlights, and if you step into their light beams, you'll 
    get caught for sure. Variations are:
    	- 60 seconds (I think): Angry Aztec
    	- 70 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    
    TEETERING TURTLE TROUBLE!
    
    	In this game, you must shoot melons at the snakes, to keep them 
    fed. If the snakes get too hungry, they'll eat the turtles. You don't 
    want that, trust me. Variations:
    	- 45 seconds: Angry Aztec
    	- 45 seconds: Fungi Forest
    	- 60 seconds: Creepy Castle
    
    BUSY BARREL BARRAGE!
    
    	In this shooting game, you're standing in the middle of a big 
    barrel, with your character's gun. You try to keep away the baddies by 
    shooting them. If they touch you, you die. Variations:
    	- 45 seconds: Angry Aztec
    	- 45 seconds: Fungi Forest
    	- 60 seconds: Crystal Caves
    
    BEAVER BOTHER!
    
    	Damn, I hate this game. The object is to scare the beavers into a 
    pit in the middle. Don't fall in, or game over for you. You are a 
    Klaptrap, and can bite by pressing B. My tips are to choose one beaver, 
    keep making him circle closer and closer to the pit, then hopefully 
    it'll fall in. Variations:
    	- 12 beavers in 60 seconds: Frantic Factory
    	- 15 beavers in 60 seconds: Creepy Castle
    	- 15 beavers in 60 seconds: Creepy Castle (yes, twice)
    
    KRAZY KONG KLAMOR!
    
    	You're shooting melons, trying to hit the banana, not the other 
    Kongs. The lights go on and off, so shoot when they come back on. Just 
    look before firing, you should be fine. Variations:
    	- 10 hits in 60 seconds: Frantic Factory
    	- 15 hits in 60 seconds: Gloomy Galleon
    	- 5 hits in 60 seconds (not as easy as you think): Fungi Forest
    	- 5 hits in 60 seconds (very very hard): Crystal Caves
    
    STASH SNATCH!
    
    	While going around the maze, you must collect all the coins and 
    make it to the end without getting hit by a Krusha. Pretty simple, for 
    the most part. Variations are:
    	- 6 coins in 60 seconds: Frantic Factory
    
    
    List Completed!
