<< List of Levels >>

Barrel Drop Bounce is the twenty-third level in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy Advance games, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the third area of K3.

During this waterfall level, the Kongs do not find the Booster Barrels and Tracker Barrels needed to blast them to the top of the area. Instead, they have to jump from barrel to barrel as the objects pour down the waterfalls in order to make it to the top of this level. Parry can also be found here, and leading him to the No Animal Sign yields a green Extra Life Balloon. Krimps, Bristles, Buzzes and a single Booty Bird all dwell in this area to attack the heroes.

Level Layout[edit]

At the beginning of the level, the heroes find a gap in front of the first waterfall in which they should cross. They can also use the passage behind the falls to cross. Farther on, they encounter a gap to large to get over. With the aid of a lone barrel, the apes should make their way over it and hop into one of the level's few Barrel Cannons blast to the letter K, as well as a higher area. Using barrels to cross another waterfall, they move farther down the damp pathway to find a passage behind a waterfall. Taking this path, the monkeys make their way to the letter O. After they travel down a strait pathway, passing a few Bristles behind a pristine waterfall, they find the Star Barrel.

About halfway into the level, the heroes use a lone barrel to climb up a ledge to high to reach with a normal jump. The two apes soon make their way to a dead end in front of a waterfall. Falling from the falls are several barrels, which should be used to climb the large waterfall. When nearing the highest possible point on the waterfall by using the falling barrels, the Kongs find a second Barrel Cannon. If they get into the cannon, they are shot upwards. At that point, the player should make the monkeys move to the left while airborne to land in the next area. There, the group travels along the rugged pathway, jumping over a few small gaps to reach higher slants of land. They soon make their way behind a water on the wet ground when meeting a wall of Buzzes. Once they scale the whole area behind the fall, they find the letter N in the air, along with another Barrel Cannon. This cannon aims upwards, but does not fire the apes automatically. Instead, as the other barrels roll from the waterfall to the left, they fire themselves to a barrel and climb to another area of land. After that, the monkeys meet Perry, who is parallel to them until passing the No Perry Sign, or unless Perry is defeated by an enemy. Heading on, the Kongs and Perry cross another abyss with the help of two falling barrels. Once they get on land, they walk down the grassy pathway to find a high-up ledge. With a barrel falling from the behind waterfall, the group can reach the top of the ledge. After getting on the ledge, they meet a dead-end, so they need to climb to another ledge with a falling barrel. If they can do this safely, they head under a Buzz and cross a huge waterfall with the use a four barrels. After using the four objects as stepping stones in the air, they hop on one more falling barrel to reach a higher area, as well as the No Perry Sign. If Parry is alive at this point, crossing the No Perry Sign earns the Kongs a green Extra Life Balloon. Passing along a strait pathway in front of a waterfall, the apes finally find the level's flagpole, ending the level.


Bonus Levels[edit]

  • Right after the letter K, the group uses a set of barrels to cross a waterfall. If they go backwards after crossing the gap, they head up to a Bonus Barrel, taking them into a Bonus Level. In this Bonus Level, they hop along some falling barrels on a large waterfall to grab fifteen green bananas. Once all green bananas have been collected, a Bonus Coin appears.
  • After the letter N, the heroes see a large waterfall to the right. With Dixie in the lead, the monkeys should jump into the air and have Dixie use her Helicopter Spin to reach a barrel sliding down the waterfall. Near the barrel is a Bonus Barrel, which leads the Kongs into a Bonus Level. There, they need to quickly hop up some falling barrels on a long waterfall to reach the top of the area. On a platform found to the right of the stage's highest point, they find the Bonus Coin.

DK Coin[edit]

  • After the letter K, Dixie should be used to hover to the right in front of a large waterfall. Following a trail of bananas on a platform, she and Kiddy find a Steel Keg nearby. They should pick up this barrel and carry along the several slants of land behind an in front of the waterfall to soon encounter the Koin. Heading as far right as possible with the barrel, the apes reach a small wall between two levels of land. They lightly throw the barrel against that wall and run quickly back to the Koin. With the barrel near them, the monkeys need to jump to the left of the Koin. At that time, the enemy pay attention to the Kongs, not at the barrel rolling behind him. Eventually, it hits the distracted Kremling in the back, defeating him. This gives the Kongs the DK Coin.
