Donkey Konga

Strategy Guide



  • Control title screen

    Clap at the title screen to move the letters in the "Press Start Button" message.

  • Easy coins

    Do a song that has many rolls (for example, We Will Rock You or the Pokemon Theme). Those songs have lots easy rolls, and on only Monkey Mode you can at least rack 300.

  • Clap roll

    When you do a clap roll, just blow into the clap sensor. It will let you get massive coinage. This does not damage the sensor. To do a clap roll with your mouth, just purr or do something similar.

  • Fast coins on rolls

    This trick requires a controller with a macro feature. Turn on the macro and use the controller setting where all of the symbols are on the buttons and not the control sticks or triggers. Hold down that button during that roll.

  • Soft clap

    Instead of having to clap loudly or take your hands off the bongos, just snap your fingers or give the right side of the bongo (side not surface; the plastic part) a good tap. This will respond as a tap. Also, instead of clapping or hitting the side of the side of the Konga, you can just yelp a small but loud noise.

  • Gorilla Songs

    To get Gorilla Songs, just go into Ape Town and purchase them from the Jungle Jam menu. They all cost different prices.

  • Never miss bongo beats

    Whenever a red, yellow, or pink barrel appears, just hit both bongos. It will show up as a yellow, red or a pink. This helps for the Gorilla songs.
