Donkey Kong Island
Bright Savannah

Tropical Freeze is one where I wouldn't mind doing individual levels, so many of them are good. But it's these two. Frozen DK Island is visually incredible and Bright Savannah switches themes almost every level without any of them feeling out of place. The transition from upbeat wildlands to 'middle of a storm' to 'fuck everything's on fire' is one of the best parts of the game.

Shoutout to Seabreeze Cove for having High Tide Ride in it, though.

Oh wow, 2 best platformers ever in one topic eh

Donkey Kong Island
Juicy Jungle
Bright Savannah

K. Rool's Keep
Krazy Kremland
Gloomy Gulch

Tropical Freeze is a game where I feel each world gets more mindblowing than the last, with the slight exception of Seabreeze Cove (which still does the impossible and has water levels that are downright great). Bright Savannah just missed the cut here; the other two worlds are just too stellar. Oh, and another shout out to High Tide Ride, my favorite level in the game. 3D mine cart section? Yes please.

Once more sad I can't vote for individual levels when Tropical Freeze is a game where every level really feels like its own world. But the style absolutely works for other platformers, so it makes sense.

E: okay Shonen jogged memories that got me to include Bright Savannah. It deserves it.

Hm, this is a tough one. DK Island is obvious but the second choice I could hear an argument for literally any of them (except Secret Seclusion). They all have standout levels and top tier music, so going for overall 'feel' of a world... giving it to Autumn Heights. But on another day it could be Savannah or Juicy Jungle pretty easily. Haven't played 2.

Autumn Heights
Donkey Kong Island

@StartTheMachine you can only pick two for each game sadly!

Whoops I totally didn't read the only 2 votes part.

Drop Krazy Kremland and Bright Savannah. Krazy Kremland is probably better than Gloomy Gulch, but I just adore the atmosphere of those haunted forest levels.
