Hello, my name is Upgrader01, and this is a guide that will show you what time 
you need to get medal on Time Attack mode in Donkey Kong Country Returns. This 
guide covers every version this game is in. The japanese version is in a 
different section, since some times are very different.

This guide should only be on GameFaqs.com. If you bought this guide, you've 
been ripped off. Please don't copy this guide, since I spent my time testing 
some stages, and it's just not cool that you only copy-paste it. I do allow 
you to print or link to this guide. This guide was written in a .txt document.

ии  OVERVIEW  ии
ииииииииииииииии

Time Attack is probably the hardest thing you can attempt in DKCR. There are 
Bronze, Silver, Gold and Shiny medals for every stage. This guide is only 
meant to provide the times for each. If you are looking for help in earning 
them, check out videos uploaded to YouTube.

The shiny medals I mentioned in the previous section are the best possible 
medals you can earn, but the game never tells you what time you need. This 
guide is meant to tell you those times as well, so don't worry!

PATIENCE: They will frustrate you and some may take you days.

ROLL AND JUMP: This is the most important thing. You'll use it constantly.

DIDDY: Getting forward momentum jumps is hard, and the jetpack slows down 
momentum, but you can do an infinite roll and clear pits you wouldn't be 
able to otherwise.

GRABBING DK BARRELS: If you start rolling before reaching it, press the jump 
and grab buttons at the same time just before touching it to pick it up 
without losing speed. If you end up closer, grab it and start rolling 
immediately to break it instantly.

LOW AND HIGH JUMPS: Tapping the jump button will make you jump lower, but 
pressing it fully will take you high. Using both is key.

THE NUNCHUCK IS YOUR FRIEND: It's easier to time attack with the Nunchuck.

TAKING HITS: Normally, it will slow you down, but the invincibility frames 
can take you through faster paths in some levels.

HELPFUL SECRETS: The bonus areas in 8-7, 2-5 and 6-7 (the first one) save 
a lot of time. In some levels, secret/alternate paths (such as where some 
puzzle pieces are) are key to shiny.
