Use a Gorilla-Grab to operate the lever in the Frantic Factory area, then play the original Donkey Kong game. Beat all four stages, then play once more and complete the game to collect the Nintendo Coin. Then, find and photograph six fairies with the camera to unlock the original Donkey Kong option at the "Mystery Menu".

Cheat Mode

Find and photograph all twenty fairies with the camera to unlock the Cheat Mode option at the "Mystery Menu". This allows unlimited items during a game.

Bonus levels

Find and collect forty Blueprints and bring them to Snide to unlock eight bonus levels (Batty Barrel Bash, Beaver Bother, Big Bug Bash, Krazy Kong Klamor, Kremling Kosh, Peril Path Panic, Searchlight Seek, and Teetering Turtle Trouble).

Kasplut colors

Look at the hair color of a Kasplut when one is encountered. The color will reveal what color Blueprint he is holding. Green hair indicates a green Blueprint. If the Kasplut has white hair, then he does not have anything.

Multi-player mode

Go to the first level in adventure mode, where you find Diddy. Locate the big pad with King K. Rool's face in front of Funky's Place. Stand on the pad and press Z. You will be transported to a "battle arena", where you must defeat a group of small enemies. Once the timer runs out, you will receive a crown and have ability to play two multi-player games (a third-person death match-like game, and a multi-player version of the Battle Arena).

Restore watermelon meter

When low on health, get next to a "Tag Barrel", jump into the barrel and exit to replenish your watermelon meter.
