The Kongs in Fruity Factory.

The level starts outside the first of possibly two separate factories, where beyond two Chompasauruses lies the entrance into a building where giant watermelons are being carried and processed. The Kongs must avoid multiple oversized death traps throughout the level: giant fruit-cutting cleavers, huge juicers that drill through giant fruits, large columns of spinning blades that destroy pathways made of fruits, and spiked paddle traps, among others. Several areas of the level feature long pits of shuriken-shaped blades that mince giant orange-like fruits into large and small slices, which act as flat platforms that fly upwards and hover in the air momentarily before falling back down. At the end of the level, the Kongs land inside the bottom of a huge barrel, in which they must jump onto multiple fruit slice-platforms to outlast a rising pit of blades until they reach the Slot Machine Barrel at the barrel's top.


KONG Letters[edit]

  • K: Pass the watermelon section in the first factory, there is a letter K between two fruit-cutting blades. Players must stomp Hootz to get it if they do not have Kong partners.
  • O: In the second grapefruit platform section, there is a letter O in behind of a Barrel Cannon.
  • N: After accessing the second factory, a letter N can be found in front of a swinging citrus platform.
  • G: In the second factory, a letter G can be found in the place where rectangular watermelons are crushed one by one.

Puzzle Pieces[edit]

  1. In the entrance, there is a crumbly wall below an upside-down Chompasaurus. Hand slap the wooden platform to break the wall, which houses bunches of bananas as well as a Puzzle Piece in the middle.
  2. After getting inside the first factory, stomp a Tucks to jump into one of the watermelons, which are being carried by the wooden platforms. Hop onto these watermelons and head to the left to gain access to the secret area, where the player has to collect bananas in 30 seconds to get a Puzzle Piece.
  3. In the area where there are two juicers, players must stop the fruit-cutting blade by triggering a Waldough-like switch. After that, hop onto the second juicer to access the secret area that houses Banana Bunches as well as a Puzzle Piece.
  4. After passing Professor Chops in the second factory, hand slap the purple plump fruit to reveal a Puzzle Piece.
  5. Grapefruit pieces continuously pop up during the huge barrel section. At the end of the barrel section (where there is a Slot Machine Barrel on the top), there is a grapefruit platform with a Puzzle Piece on the left.

Secret Exit[edit]

The secret exit to Beehive Brawl is located immediately past the second checkpoint, hidden in an alcove above the passageway with two Banana Bunches and a Kong Barrel guarded by an Archy. The player Kong should take out the Chompasaurus patrolling the top platform of the large wooden structure, then jump to the right from that platform to reach the hidden alcove that houses the exit.
