Barrel Drop Bounce
Barrel Drop Bounce is the twenty-third level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and the third level of K3. In the level, Dixie and Kiddy must traverse up a waterfall. Barrels are falling down the waterfall, and the Kongs can use them as platforms to ascend the level. There are instances in which Kiddy can use a team up throw so that he and Dixie can reach nearby ground or a nearby Auto-Fire Barrel. While on land, the Kongs must avoid Bristles and Krimps along the way. Later in the level, the Kongs can optionally release Parry the Parallel Bird from its Animal Crate. If they manage to get Parry around the Buzzes and to the No Animal Sign, the Kongs are rewarded a Green Balloon.
At the beginning of the level, the Kongs 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 straight pathway, passing a few Bristles behind a pristine waterfall, they find the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the Kongs 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 Parry, who is parallel to them until passing the No Parry Sign, or unless Parry is defeated by an enemy. Heading on, the Kongs and Parry 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 Parry Sign. If Parry is alive at this point, crossing the No Parry Sign earns the Kongs a green Extra Life Balloon. Passing along a straight pathway in front of a waterfall, the apes finally find the level's flagpole, ending the level.
