“The Kremling's crowning industrial achievements are the huge factories they built in Donkey Kong Country. These factories do not adhere to strict safety codes, and are full of burning oil drums, faulty lighting and perilous platforms. Enter at your own risk.”
Donkey Kong Country instruction booklet, page 20

Kremkroc Industries, Inc., formatted as Kremkroc Industries in the Game Boy Color version and also known as Kremkrock Industry Inc.,[1] is the fifth world in Donkey Kong Country. Located at the top-left of Donkey Kong Island, Kremkroc Industries, Inc. is an industrial area filled with subterranean areas and factories run by the Kremlings. The factories generate a lot of pollution, causing the area to be murky. The pollution even carries over into a large pond at the bottom of the world. According to the Nintendo Power guide, Kremkroc Industries, Inc. used to be a lush environment before Kremlings built the factories.[2] The world's boss is Dumb Drum, who is a large black drum.

The Factory world in Donkey Kong Country Returns was likely inspired by Kremkroc Industries, Inc. because it features arrangements of the former's music. In the Donkey Kong Country TV show, the place appears as King K. Rool's lair which the Mines are connected to.

Levels[edit]

Kremkroc Industries, Inc. has two factory levels, two walkway levels (one of them is a Mine Cart stage), a cave level, and an underwater level.

Level Description Enemies Animal Friends
Oil Drum Alley SNES.png
Oil Drum Alley
Oil Drum Alley takes place in a factory, and it has metallic floors, yellow caution strips, flaming oil barrels, and Gnawtys. The level has the Kongs evade Oil Barrels, bounce on rubber tires, and use the TNT barrels located inside loose floor tiles to find Bonus Areas. Gnawty

Trick Track Trek
This level has both a walkway and an elevator theme. After avoiding nuts thrown by a Necky at the start of the level, the lead Kong should proceed to the elevator platform. Once the leader sets foot on it, the platform automatically starts, though the speed and direction are unchangeable. In the first half of the level, Neckies appear to pester the Kongs, either flying at the elevator or spitting deadly nuts at them. After the Continue Barrel has been broken, Gnawties come to further annoy the Kongs, usually falling straight at them. Necky

Another cave/elevator level. This level first starts off as a regular cave level, with many Slippas and Zingers to spare; the level even features ropes. Later in the level, though, rising and falling elevators are found. Slippa

Poison Pond*
Poison Pond takes place in a polluted, green pond. Going to the left of the screen from where the level starts reveals a secret area which has the letter "K" and an animal crate with Enguarde inside. Many Mincers are found throughout the level, and often move in the Kong's path. Every water enemy is in the level except Chomps. Bitesize

Blackout Basement SNES.png
Blackout Basement**
The second and last factory level of the game. The level, as the name suggests, takes place in a lower part of a factory with electrical problems. As a result, the lights flicker on and off repeatedly, and when the lights are off, the level goes completely black, hiding everything except the Kongs. Kritter

Instead, smog clouds the air and there is a general lack of greenery. King K. Rool and his factories are to be held responsible for polluting the place. The levels of toxicity are high, so don't spend more time than you have to in this slimy area there are many Items hidden in the factories." - The Donkey Kong Country Player's Guide, page 88.
