In Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Nintendo Wii, after beating a boss it always tells me I got "1 Hit". It's clear to me that I am supposed to do something to get more hits, presumably during the animation of Donkey Kong punching the boss. However nothing I have done increases the number of hits. I have shaken the wiimote, pressed buttons, etc.
What are these "hits"? How do you get more hits after beating a boss? What are they good for?
