Gusty Glade (Donkey Kong Land 2)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
This level takes place in a forest and the main obstacle in this level is the strong wind (hence the name of the level) that pushes the Kongs in the direction it blows. With several pits and enemies, the level becomes quite hard to pass. Hooks and Barrel Cannons are present in this level, helping the monkeys get over the abysses. The wind can also help the apes jump from one hook/barrel to another, since there are long distances between them. However, the gust can blow in the opposite direction, and the Kongs can easily fall into a pit and lose a life. Rattly the Rattlesnake makes another appearance within this level. Click-Clacks, Klampons, Spinies, Neeks and, of course, Flitters are enemies that inhabit the area.
This is the only level in Donkey Kong Land 2 that is almost identical to Donkey Kong Country 2's version of the stage. Although some enemies or items may have been excluded or moved, the layout remains very similar. Even though the layout is alike in both games, however, some Bonus Levels and other secrets are still hidden in distinct places.
