Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is a racing game where the player controls their character with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. To move their character, the player has to shake the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, lift them at the same time to jump, and use the controller's motion sensor to beat their opponents and use items. The main mode of play is a Grand Prix like the one seen in the Mario Kart series. There is also a Time Trial mode where players can race on one track without opponents.
