<< List of levels >>

Bramble Scramble is the second secret level of Bright Savannah in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It features many brambles, a nod to the bramble levels in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, as well as platforms and obstacles that gradually appear as the Kongs proceed through the level. The level is unlocked after finding the second secret exit in Twilight Terror.


Donkey Kong and Cranky Kong attacking some Porcupals.

As the Kongs start to move forward in the level, solid platforms, semi-solid platforms made of dandelions, cacti, and enemies including Swooper Doopers will begin to appear. The cacti act similar to the beds of spikes found in previous levels, and will hurt the Kongs if they land on them. The Kongs will also find a DK Barrel, and a vine which, when pulled on, will produce an even bigger vine from below, whose leaves can be used as platforms to cross the bed of cacti. Later, the Kongs will encounter a wide bottomless pit, from which a large vine with platforms will extend. Using the platforms, the Kongs will then reach and jump along several spring mushrooms, avoiding enemies along the way. Shortly after that, there will be a Barrel Cannon that launches the Kongs to the next area.

Past the first checkpoint, the Kongs will run into more of the same obstacles. After crossing another bed of cacti and a small pit, there is a vine the Kongs will need to pull onto to reveal more platforms. The platforms also reveal a Buffaloafer, but lead the way to the next Barrel Cannon. After launching through a forest of brambles, the Kongs will end up in the third area and be attacked by two Porcupals upon arrival.

After passing the next checkpoint, more solid and dandelion platforms will appear, except this time they are moving. The enemies are also more abundant. Eventually, just past two spring mushrooms, the Kongs will enter a short series of Barrel Cannons. Here, they must time their launch to avoid colliding into the moving brambles and Blue Hootzes. After overcoming them, the Kongs will reach the Slot Machine Barrel.

  • K: Found above a pit after the first set of vine platforms.

Puzzle Pieces[edit]

  1. Inside the container on a high platform at the start. Two more dandelion platforms appear leading to it after standing on the first one.
  2. Revealed after collecting all of the Bananas on the first vertical vine with platforms.
  3. Behind the leaves after the spring mushrooms, there is a vine. Pulling onto it will reveal a giant vine with clingy grass and multiple Bananas in the background, as well as a Barrel Cannon leading to it. The Kongs must use the grass to climb along the vine, while avoiding the Lemmingtons that chase them, and collect all of the Bananas to make the Puzzle Piece appear.
  4. Past the vine platforms after the first checkpoint, there is a high platform with a hidden entrance to a Bonus Area, which rewards them with the Puzzle Piece upon completion.
  5. At the end of the small pit in the second area, there is a single Banana that leads to a hidden Barrel Cannon, which launches the Kongs towards the Puzzle Piece.
  6. Shortly after arriving at the third area, the Kongs should head left to find a container obscured by some leaves, which contains multiple Bananas. Collecting them all before they disappear reveals the Puzzle Piece.
  7. Using the dandelion platform above the letter "N", the Kongs can reach a high platform to the left, covered in leaves, with another hidden entrance to a Bonus Area containing the Puzzle Piece.
