The gameplay was originally viewable in both 2D and isometric 3D layouts (whilst being developed as Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers), however there were consistency issues when switching between the layouts. It was also hard for players to see the board whilst in 3D and wasn't to the expectations of the developers.

The "Crayon Snake" in marathon mode was originally intended to be called the "Trouser Snake", however the game's publisher, THQ, had requested for the name to be changed. This was possibly due to the sexual innuendo associated with the term.

It's Mr. Pants was originally Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers, however due to Microsoft acquiring Rare, the game was canceled in 2002. Eventually in 2003, THQ picked up the game and instead of Donkey Kong, Rare's then mascot, Mr. Pants, was used.
