<< Directory of levels >>

Booster Barrel Skyway is the first level of K. Kruizer III in DK: King of Swing. It must be completed to unlock the following level, K. Kruizer III Artillery. Booster Barrel Skyway is the only level available when starting the world whereas most worlds have two levels available from the start.

As the level's name suggests, it heavily involves the use of Booster Barrels. Donkey Kong must use the barrels to travel up throughout the level to progress up to the K. Kruizer III airship itself. Zingers and Mini-Neckys are the enemies that Donkey Kong encounters along the way, and spikes for obstacles. A path of bananas stretch across the path, and circles of bananas are often around some enemies. Some extra Booster Barrels appear around the level in case the Kong crashes his. Booster Barrel Skyway is one of the shortest levels, and it has only one section instead of three.


The level begins on flat, snowy land. A Booster Barrel hangs above the ground that can fly the Kong upwards through a long banana trail. As it passes an extra Booster Barrel, the banana trail breaks into two pathways, creating a circle that moves around a Zinger. The trail continues past a floating spike and a second extra Booster Barrel. More Zingers are above, one of which that can be defeated for a Crystal Coconut, along with some stationary spikes. The banana trail breaks into two pathways again after the third extra Booster Barrel, creating a circle shape that surrounds a moving Mini-Necky. Another Mini-Necky is circled by more bananas just after another extra Booster Barrel. Floating spikes are also around this area. After the fifth extra Booster Barrel, the Kong flies into an area without many bananas. Floating spikes and Mini-Neckys fill this part of the level, along with the bronze medal. Eventually, the hero should reach a platform at the top of the area with an exit sign. If the Kong lands on this platform, they complete the level.
