Barrel Drop Bounce
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 will not find the Booster Barrels and Tracker Barrels needed to blast them to the top of the area. Instead, they will 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. If Kiddy is having trouble with the jumps here, letting Dixie take the lead might not be such a bad idea, as her Helicopter Twirl can help her reach far-apart barrels. Parry can also be found here, and leading him to the No Animal Sign will yield a green Extra Life Balloon. Krimps, Bristles, Buzzes and a single Booty Bird all dwell in this area to attack the heroes.
At the beginning of the level, the heroes will 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 will 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 will move farther down the damp pathway to find a passage behind a waterfall. Taking this path, the monkeys will make their way to the letter O. After they travel down a strait pathway, passing a few Bristles behind a pristine waterfall, they will find the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the heroes will use a lone barrel to climb up a ledge to high to reach with a normal jump. The two apes will soon make their way to a dead end in front of a waterfall. Falling from the falls will be 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 will notice a second Barrel Cannon. If they get into the cannon, they will be 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 will travel along the rugged pathway, jumping over a few small gaps to reach higher slants of land. The will 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 will find the letter N in the air, along with another Barrel Cannon. This cannon will aim upwards, but not fire the apes automatically. Instead, as the other barrels roll from the waterfall to the left, they should fire themselves to a barrel and climb to another area of land. After that, the monkeys will meet Perry, who will be Parallel to them until passing the No Perry Sign, or unless Perry is defeated by an enemy. Heading on, the Kongs and Perry will cross another abyss with the help of two falling barrels. Once they get on land, they will 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 will meet a dead-end, so they will need to climb to another ledge with a falling barrel. If they can do this safely, they will 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 will hop on one more falling barrel to reach a higher area, as well as the No Perry Sign. This will make Perry disappear, giving the monkeys a green Extra Life Balloon, if it survived to this point. Passing along a strait pathway in front of a waterfall, the apes will finally find the level's flagpole. If they raise its flag, the level will end.
