Cliffside Blast is the thirty-fourth level in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is the fourth level of Pacifica.
Unlike other Pacifica levels, Cliffside Blast does not take place around any body of water, and it takes place at a cliffside. Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must go up the cliffs in the level. During the first half, the Kongs must blast from Barrel Cannons around numerous Buzzes, who are either stationary or in set paths and patterns. For the second half, the Kongs must climb up many ropes. Kopters also appear throughout the level.
The level begins with a short pathway to a Barrel Cannon. With the cannon, they must aim to another barrel and continually blast through a long chain of barrels, dodging a red Buzz on the way. Soon, the monkeys enter an open area, where they find four barrels in a diamond shape. Shooting through the middle of this area takes them to the letter K and then to a different barrel. Still blasting upwards, the apes go through numerous Barrel Cannons and shoot to a barrel surrounded by two green Buzzes. With careful aim, they must get away from the two enemies and soon find themselves being fired to a vertical tightrope. Climbing up the rope, they pass a pair of Buzzes and jump into another Barrel Cannon above a ledge. The barrel fires them to another rope, which the group must climb up. Hopping to the right of this rope and trudging up a steel hill, the monkeys pass two Re-Koils and get into yet another Barrel Cannon. Blasting through another set of barrels, the monkeys dodge several red and green Buzzes flooding the area. Once they finally reach a safe platform, they shoot through one barrel, an Auto-Fire Barrel, to land near the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the heroes grab onto another rope and climb to a ledge with a barrel above it. Once they jump into the barrel, they are automatically blasted to a long, vertical rope. While the apes clamber up this rope, they meet many Kopters, whom they need to avoid. Eventually, the monkeys find a Buzz in their path, so they are forced to use the newly appearing ropes to the left and right. Maneuvering through this area and dodging some Buzzes takes the Kongs to the letter N. Soon, they exit the area and walk up a rigid hill to find another rope. With the second rope to the right, the heroes must move through the next area, watching out for the few Kopters in their path. Shortly after, Kiddy Kong and Dixie Kong find themselves clambering up one long tightrope, avoiding several green Buzzes on the way. If they safely make it to the end of this rope, they find a flagpole to the right. Raising its flag ends the level.
