Frozen Frenzy (level)
Frozen Frenzy is the seventh level of Donkey Kong Island in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. This level is closely related to the Factory levels of Donkey Kong Country Returns, but here it is covered in ice and parts of the factory in the background are destroyed due to the invasion of the Snowmads. This factory-themed level features many electric-based obstacles, such as purple electrical beams created by Electroids that deal damage if touched. Electroids form many other major obstacles in Frozen Frenzy. For example, the level contains moving platforms that travel over Electroids; circuits form when the platforms connect to the Electroids, therefore charging the platforms. The Electroids also shoot currents at vines that the Kongs must climb, which sends a damaging current throughout the entire vine. The level is almost entirely covered in ice, which makes traction difficult, and some ice platforms also break moments after Donkey Kong lands on them. Besides the Electroids, enemies in this level include Pointy Tucks, Painguin Tucks, a Papa Painguin, Waldoughs, Walnuts, Hootzes, and a Fish Poker Pops.
The music track for this level is entitled "Frozen Frenzy," which is a much slower remix of the factory music from Donkey Kong Country.
The level starts out where frozen pipes and steel platforms are; it is the same start area from Lift-off Launch. First the player must re-activate the factory by pounding the golden platform for three times, which will open the way to the next area. The player must avoid different Snowmad enemies, as well as Electroids and their emission all the way in the level. If a plug touches an Electroid, a platform or a vine with a plug under gets electrified. Near the end, an eyeball-like robot from the level Handy Hazards in Donkey Kong Country Returns that has stopped working can be seen in the background.
After the letter N, there are two balancing vines with Electroids underneath them. The player must climb on top of the platform holding the vines, then use Cranky Kong's Cane Bounce to bound over the spiky platforms to the other side. Entering the portal there allows the Kongs to access Dynamite Dash.
