Kannon's Klaim is the seventh level in Donkey Kong Land 2 and appears to be the second area in the second world of the game, Krem Cauldron.

This level takes place in a mineshaft full of Auto-Fire Barrels. Even though the level's title features the name of Kannons and thus the level is dedicated to them, only one of these enemies makes an appearance here. Other landlubbers that are being shown in this level are Neeks, Flitters, Mini-Neckies, and Zingers.

Level layout[edit]

Dixie Kong stands next to an Auto Fire Barrel.

The Kongs begin the level on a platform under a DK Barrel. A Neek and an Auto Fire Barrel are ahead of here, and the barrel can be used to shoot up onto another platform that holds an additional Auto Fire Barrel. This barrel, along with another barrel near it, can be used to blast towards a third platform with another Auto Fire Barrel above it. This barrel can help them reach a larger platform with a Neek marching along it. An Auto Fire Barrel is to the right of the platform, and it can blast the heroes to an additional Auto Fire Barrel that is aimed to a barrel in a higher area.

This Auto Fire Barrel can blast them to two more Auto Fire Barrels, which are useful in helping the primates reach a platform with another Neek on it. They can find another Auto Fire Barrel near the Neek, and they can use it to reach some more barrels that they are able to use to reach a platform. A Zinger is placed next to the last barrel before this platform, which is followed by two more platforms. The last of the platforms holds a Neek and is located under an Auto Fire Barrel that can help them reach some barrels farther upwards. As they blast to the west with these barrels, they come up to a Flitter that flies in their way. Shortly after passing the foe, they reach an Auto Fire Barrel in a higher part of the level, and it can send them onto a long platform with a Neek on it and a DK Barrel at the end of it in the air. Two hooks are to the right of the DK Barrel, and the letter O floats under them. If the primates jump to the small platform to the left of here, they can find a Star Barrel.

A hook is located to the right of the Star Barrel, and it can help them reach a platform with three more hooks above it. They can use the hooks to reach an Auto Fire Barrel, which they must activate themselves to safely pass a moving Zinger. After they shoot through this barrel, they reach some more barrels that automatically blast them through the area and onto a platform that supports a Neek. A hook is hidden above one of the Auto Fire Barrels to the right of this platform, and if the heroes drop down from the right of it, they can reach a hidden platform with a DK Coin on it. If the heroes head left from where the hidden hook is located, they can find another Auto Fire Barrel. Some more of these barrels is below this platform, and they can blast the heroes to the letter N and then to some previous Auto Fire Barrels that can blast them back to the platform. If the primates enter the Auto Fire Barrel above this platform, they are able to reach a smaller platform with another Auto Fire Barrel over it.

They can use the barrel to shoot towards some more Auto Fire Barrels, some of which that are guarded by Zingers. The barrels can help them reach a platform with a Mini-Necky above it, who swoops down at the duo when they approach. Another platform follows the enemy, and it holds a Neek and the letter G, which is placed directly under a nearby Banana Coin. A small platform is above here to aid the primates in reaching a platform in a higher area that is located next to an Auto Fire Barrel. This barrel can blast them to another Auto Fire Barrel, which can then send them onto a platform that holds a kannonball-shooting Kannon and a Banana Coin. If the Kongs access the Auto Fire Barrel placed above this enemy, they can blast onto a platform with a spring on it. The level is completed successfully if they bounce on this spring.

Secrets[edit]

K-O-N-G Letters[edit]

Diddy Kong shoots to an Auto Fire Barrel in a Bonus Level.
  • K: When the heroes reach the third Auto Fire Barrel in the level, they should blast north-east into a barrel higher up, which they should then use to shoot to the right. If they continue over the next Auto Fire Barrel in this area, they fall towards a hidden platform with the letter K above it.
  • O: The letter O is located under some hooks to the right of the second DK Barrel in the level.
  • N: Shortly after the heroes reach the area with the DK Coin, they should head left past a Neek to find an Auto Fire Barrel above them. They should ignore this and head into some Auto Fire Barrels hidden under the platform, which can shoot them to the letter N.
  • G: After the primates pass the letter N and blast upwards with several Auto Fire Barrels, they reach an area of platforms with a Mini-Necky around them. The letter G is on the edge of the platform that follows this foe.

Bonus Level[edit]

  • To find this Bonus Level, the Kongs must get to the Star Barrel, where they should see a hook to the right of them. They can use it to get to a platform, where there is a barrel nearby. Instead of using this barrel, Dixie Kong must use her special Helicopter Spin ability to glide to the left-hand side. There is a hidden platform there, and if the Kongs jump around, they can land in an invisible Bonus Barrel and be taken to the Bonus Level. Here, they must use Auto Fire Barrels and some solid platforms to reach the top of the area within 20 seconds. When they reach the top platform, a Kremkoin appears nearby to grab within the remaining time.

DK Coin[edit]

  • Not long after where the Bonus Levels is found, Diddy and Dixie access a Barrel Cannon that they can activate themselves. They must enter this barrel and blast upwards with some more barrels (watching out for a Zinger on the way) to reach a solid platform. To the right of here, they can find a hidden hook above one of the Auto Fire Barrels, and if they drop down to the right of it they can reach a platform with a DK Coin on it.
