Jungle Hijinxs (Donkey Kong Country Returns)
Jungle Hijinxs is the first level of Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It is located within the Jungle area of Donkey Kong Island. Similar to the Jungle Hijinxs from the first Donkey Kong Country, this stage is rather basic, with very few pits.
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 a view of the treehouse, where Donkey Kong must beat up the Kalimba Tiki. The player can do so by shaking the Wii Remote (or by repeatedly pressing or in the 3DS remake). After this, Donkey Kong beats his chest and jumps to the ground. He has an option to enter his tree house or empty banana hoard, the former having a Red Balloon and a TV that can be turned on with a Ground Pound to reveal the game's title screen on it, and the latter having a Puzzle Piece and a Banana Coin which can be obtained by blowing at a dandelion. By traveling along the sandy pathway, Donkey Kong heads into a deeper part of the jungle, where he finds an Awk near a breakable stone block. A dandelion and three more Awks appear afterward. Donkey Kong can walk onto a few treetops above, and the rightmost of them has the Letter K. A few more stone blocks appear after the trees, with a Tiki Goon walking between the second and third ones. After this, Donkey Kong encounters two pairs of Screaming Pillars: he can avoid the first pair by standing in the middle of them or running past, whereas the second pair features a Screaming Pillar atop another. Donkey Kong must wait for them to crash onto each other before he can pass. Donkey Kong can jump up and collect a Banana Bunch and walk down on a wooden bridge.
As he crosses the bridge, the player can see the Tiki Pilot on a flying ship in the background, with all the stolen Bananas from the banana hoard. It flies away shortly afterward. Donkey Kong can optionally Hand Slap onto a stone tile to enter a hidden area with a Heart, some Bananas and a Banana Coin below. He must pass two more Awks and three plants (one of them being a dandelion) each containing an item. Shortly after, Donkey Kong can find two Frogoons followed by a large, bouncy flower located between two Mugly statues. By bouncing on the flower, the Statues begin to shoot out many bananas. After passing another Frogoon on a slightly elevated ground patch, Donkey Kong can find a pit leading to an Awk and a series of three raised platforms. Two of the platforms float slightly below the upper one, and the lower ones are smaller and have a gap between them. Donkey Kong can quickly collect a Red Balloon to the left of the bottom-left platform. Each of the three platforms have three Bananas on them, and the bottom-right one also has a Tiki Goon. Donkey Kong can alternatively go below the platforms and perform a roll jump above a pit and collect the letter O above it. Donkey Kong can find the checkpoint directly afterwards.
A DK Barrel follows the checkpoint where Donkey Kong can free Diddy Kong. 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 are 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 the Kongs bounce from the second flower, they can reach the level's Slot Machine Barrel and finish the level.
