Diddy Kong Pilot is a cancelled Game Boy Advance title and a retooled successor to the 2001 Diddy Kong Pilot. It was released on Rareware Central on November 5, 2011. The ROM was taken offline about a year later.


This build of Diddy Kong Pilot was kept secret from the public until October 2, 2011, when a former Rareware employee posted a gameplay video on YouTube; it was later taken offline.

This game has three separate teams with those teams being Team Kong (easy difficulty), Team Kremling (medium difficulty) and Team Cranky (advanced difficulty).

Apparently, the game was very far in development but only has a few bugs including the failure on other language options other than English. Any other language that is not English redirects to German and the only German text found in the game is on the title screen or on the language options. Another bug involves the Secrets section redirecting the player back to the title screen. Another one is, when Team Cranky is unlocked, the least advanced cup (Klaptrap Cup) has a bronze award and onwards until reaching the platinum trophy (the most advanced trophy). A fourth one is no matter which cup it is, Steamy Swoop (the first stage) is still shown to be the first course. A fifth bug is when the Sound option in the options menu is clicked on, it redirects the player to the initials select part. A sixth is the one where the numbers 22 always show up on the top-left corner of the Options screen.

This game also has a Single player mode which has a Cups option, a Time Trials or even a Cranky Challenge mode. The options mode has a language select option, a Sound option, Secret option, a Multiplayer Weapons mode which leads to the cutscene of the most recent dogfight battle defeat (another bug) along with Ghost leading them to a victory photo of a team (depending on the title screen) and the Clear Scores button erases all of the data.

  • If the game is completed by Cranky, the title would be Cranky Kong Pilot and if by a Kremling, then Kremling Pilot.
  • Also, when the game is completed as Cranky, the options menu has construction girders from the original Donkey Kong arcade game.
  • There is a spelling error on when the player loses a dogfight. Instead of saying "YOU LOSE" it says "YOU LOOSE".
