Angry Aztec is the second level of Donkey Kong 64. It is located in the desert, and it models the ancient Aztec civilization, including some Egyptian inspiration. Kongs must have at least five Golden Bananas for B. Locker to allow them in. Most of the area is engulfed in quicksand, which damages the Kongs. Lanky Kong and Tiny Kong were originally held captive in separate temples and have become playable characters ever since they were rescued. It is the first level to have Candy's Music Shop, and by extension, Music Pads and the use of instruments.
In this level, Diddy Kong can practice his Rocketbarrel Boost skills with the Buzzard. Donkey Kong can free a Llama, who later assists the Kongs in his temple by cooling the lava with his spit. There is also the Beetle who Tiny races down a large slide. The level's boss is Dogadon, who is fought by Diddy Kong. A notable area in this level is the five-door temple in which the Kroc resides. A large, spinning totem appears in the center of the one of the outdoor areas.
This is the entrance of the level. There is a 1 pad, and two sand pits with vines. There are also two rooms in the tunnel. The first one is for Donkey, which contains his Kasplat and Donkey Barrels, while the second one is for Chunky, which contains a puzzle where he puts vases in their correct spots.
First central area
This is the first overworld area. It has a grass field in the center with a dirt pile and a Tag Barrel. Candy's Music Shop is located around the grass field. There is a llama cage where the llama can be freed, and a domed temple where Tiny is imprisoned. Diddy's Kasplat is located at the top of the dome. The 1 and 2 pads are located here.
There are three sections of the tunnel. At the end of the first section, there is Tiny's Kasplat, Cranky's Lab, and a 3 pad. At the end of the second section is a Chunky Barrel and a cage with a Bonus Barrel.
Second central area
This is the largest area of the level. It contains the Llama's Temple where Lanky Kong is jailed, the Five-Doored Temple, and a temple where Tiny races a beetle. Funky's Store and Snide's H.Q. are in the back of the area. There is a totem at the center of the area, where Diddy can use Rocketbarrel Boost to free the Buzzard or open the Five-Doored Temple.
The smallest area of the level, it contains a Bonus Barrel, and when complete, a 5 pad appears. The tunnel is almost entirely in quicksand. It is only accessible after Donkey presses a switch in the Llama's Temple.
