Candy's Save Point
|Candy's Save Point|
|Greater location||Donkey Kong Island|
|Game(s)||Donkey Kong Country|
The purpose of this area is self explanatory. When the Kongs enter, Candy will greet them, usually offering advice to save "before it's too late", a reference to how Kongs (in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country) could, at any time, get stuck on a level in the next world and not have access to a save point (often Gorilla Glacier) until a later part of the level. As such, it is smart to save before confronting a boss and whenever the Kongs first reach the Save Point (though of course players are free to save whenever at their own discretion).
The Save Point's use was lessened in the remakes of Donkey Kong Country, since the Game Boy Advance version, it was reduced to a Dance Studio, which was a mini-game where Kongs could win lives. The Kongs could save anywhere on the map in that remake. A similar thing happened to Funky's Flights.
