Jungle Hijinxs (Donkey Kong Country Returns)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
One can enter Donkey Kong's treehouse for a second time to find an Extra Life Balloon and a TV that can be turned on with a Ground Pound to reveal the game's title screen on it. Similar to the Jungle Hijinxs from the first Donkey Kong Country, this stage is rather basic, with very few pits. However, the level does feature some new enemies, such as Screaming Pillars, Frogoons, Tiki Goons, Awks, and Rawks. The Kongs can also enter the background of a level for the first time here by using an Auto Fire Barrel.
In the Time Attack mode, a time of 0:57:00 is required to get a gold medal, a time of 1:17:00 for silver, and a time of 1:45:00 for bronze.
The level begins with Donkey and Diddy exiting their treehouse after defeating the Kalimba Tiki. If they travel forward along the sandy pathway, they head into a deeper part of the jungle, where they meet an Awk near a stone block that they can break. A dandelion and three more Awks follow the stone cube. Trees that the primates can stand on are above them, and one of the trees has the letter K on it. Blocks are located after the tree holding the letter K. A Tiki Goon is between a pair of blocks and a single one. The heroes reach a trio of Screaming Pillars along the way; the third pillar has a stone block on top of it the quickly falls when it is startled. After the duo passes a lone Banana Bunch, they come up to a hill. As they cross it, a flying ship with a Tiki foe on it appears in the background.
However, it soon flies away, leaving the Kongs unharmed. A pair of Awks and three plants that contain items follow the bridge. A floor tile nearby here has a hidden area under it, which contains some collectibles. Donkey and Diddy can soon find two Frogoons around a raised area of land with a large, bouncy flower next to it in a slightly lower area. When the heroes bounce on this, two giant statues of Mugly to the left and right of them shoot out many bananas. After passing another raised area of land with a Frogoon on it, the Kongs come along a path leading to an Awk and a series of three platforms. Two of the platforms are placed in the air with a gap between them, and another is located directly above the same gap. Bananas and a Tiki Goon are also on the platforms, and the letter "O" is in the gap. To reach the "O", DK must do a roll jump. Professor Chops and the first checkpoint wait immediately after these platforms.
Another raised area of land follows a DK Barrel in this area. Two Awks march near a gap full of spikes ahead. Eventually, Donkey and Diddy reach a giant button that makes a new area appear in the background if pounded on several times. Once they shoot to the background with the Barrel Cannon that appears, they land on top of some tall, pillar-like platforms that are pushed downwards when hit. Awks are on some of these pillars, and they are followed by two additional Awks in a flat area of land. Four platforms are attached to a solid wall above here. The first of these platforms holds the letter N, while the second carries a heart. If they climb up all of the platforms, they can reach a Barrel Cannon that shoots them towards many Auto Fire Barrels in the air. The barrels shoot them through the air and then onto solid ground again, where a barrel and a block can be found. A raised area is after the block with two Tiki Goons on it. A heart and another stone cube is located at the end of the raised land, which is followed by a bridge with some Awks on it. Awks and Rawks march along the pathway ahead, trying to attack the primates. Several stone structures are placed above all of these foes, and they lead to the letter G and even a Puzzle Piece. Two large, red flowers can be seen ahead. If they Kongs bounce from the second flower, they can reach the level's Slot Machine Barrel; hitting this barrel makes the level complete.
