Forest Frenzy is the thirteenth level of Donkey Kong Country. It is also the third level of the Vine Valley area on Donkey Kong Island.

This level takes place in a forest around Tree Top Town and Vine Valley. The area is filled with numerous abysses and enemies, and the only way to get away from them is with the use of many mobile ropes, which move from left to right when grabbed. As the ropes carry the Kongs over the abysses, they have to watch out for numerous enemies by sliding around the twines. These enemies include Neckies and Zingers, who attempt to knock the primates off of the ropes and down through the trees. Some Kritters also appear here to attack the Kongs as they walk along the ground areas.


The Kongs begin the level

At the beginning of the level, the Kongs are greeted by a jumping Kritter and a large abyss with a rope moving across it. They can use the rope to cross the pit and access a large piece of land holding two Kritters and a raised area of ground with a DK Barrel on it. Another abyss is ahead, with the letter K in it and a rope swinging above it. The platform on the other side of this pit holds a Kritter and is followed by a wider abyss that must be crossed by using two ropes that swing towards each other in the center of the pit. A Zinger with some bananas around it stand in the primates' way as they cross. On the other side of the abyss, the heroes can find a low piece of land with two Kritters near it at a higher elevation. If the Kongs jump on the lower area from the rope they can break a part of the ground that contains a barrel. They can find another pit near here with a rope hovering over it. As the Kongs cross the pit, which can only be done with the use of the rope, they come past the letter O and then reach an area of land carrying two more Kritters and some bananas. A rope dangles above a wide abyss near here. Once they grab onto it, it begins to pull them past an area full of Zingers that are scattered all over the place. The rope then leads them to a platform with the level's Star Barrel above it.

Another rope is next to this platform, and it can be used to send the heroes over a wide abyss containing a Zinger that moves in a vertical path around a V-shaped trail of bananas. A DK Barrel wobbles between the bananas. They can find another platform being dominated by a Kritter on the other side of the abyss. A larger abyss is ahead of here that leads the Kongs past a long line of Zingers that move back and forth in a vertical path. Two platforms can be found on the other side of this abyss, each with a Kritter on them. A Necky flies between the two platforms. If the heroes grab onto a rope that hangs over a large pit after here, it begins to pull them past a Zinger moving in a circular path, who moves above a V-shaped trail of bananas with the letter N between them. After passing this Zinger, the rope stops near another rope that the Kongs must jump onto to be guided over the remaining part of the abyss. As they glide over the beginning of this area, they pass many Zingers flying in circular paths. One of these foes orbits a DK Barrel. Soon, they reach a pair of Zingers that move parallel to each other in a vertical path. The letter G hovers between them. Another Zinger ahead of here quickly orbits an Extra Life Balloon. Once they pass this foe, they are lead into an area full of bananas. As they travel over the rest of the pit, many Neckies approach them, trying to run into the duo. Eventually, the two friends reach a large area of land with four small ledges on it. Kritters bounce on the edges of most of the ledges. On the fourth ledge, the heroes can find a sign indicating that the level is almost over. After climbing down three more ledges, the last two of which that hold Kritters, they reach an exit sign with an entryway ahead of it. If they enter the opening, they complete the level.

Soon, the rope reaches the end of the area and stops, pulling the heroes next to the level's photograph as they dangle at the bottom of the rope. The item gives them a picture of a Mini-Necky for their scrapbook.

Bonus Levels[edit]

Image Type and description
Forest Frenzy Bonus 1.png Stop the Barrel!
While the characters ride on the last rope in the level, they encounter many Neckies flying at them. At this time, they should look down and try to spot a barrel that leads to the first Bonus Level. They can discover this barrel near the end of the area. Once it is spotted, they must climb down the rope and get in, entering the Bonus Level. There, they must watch an Animal Token of Rambi the Rhino as it moves around four barrels at a fast stopped. When it stops, they must choose the barrel they think it is in. If they chose correctly, the Kongs are awarded with the token. Once they are done with this bonus, they are brought back to the main level. They are also forced out of the bonus without a prize if they fail to choose the correct barrel.
Forest Frenzy Bonus 2.png Collect the Bananas!
After the Kongs jump off the last rope, they must glide over a Kritter and hit into an area of the ground. A barrel pops out of the ground after they slam into it. This barrel should be carried up the several ledges through the rest of the level. As they take it around the area, they must try to keep the barrel away from enemies so they do not break it. Once they see the exit sign, still with the barrel, they must blast open the wall to the left. An entryway is revealed when they blast it away, and they should walk into it to access a Bonus Level, where they need to grab onto a rope and grab many bananas, all scattered throughout the area. Once all of the bananas are collected, they can grab an Animal Token of Enguarde and then head out.
