Diddy Kong Racing/DS

As the story of the game goes, Timber was apparently left in charge of Timber's Island when his parents went on vacation and left him in charge of the island. Unfortunately, disaster struck Timber and his family's island when an evil, intergalactic pig, aptly named Wizpig invaded the island. As Wizpig took over the island Timber managed to send letters to his various friends, requesting their assistance in helping him defeat Wizpig. With the aid of his friends Timber managed to defeat Wizpig and reclaim ownership of his island.
